Hi, I'm the admin here at

I'm trying to build a small, friendly community for people who make things and want a chill place to hang out

I'm modelling this community based on advice from

I'm someone who makes mostly digital things, generative art, interactive media, and I'm also learning about electronics and modular synthesisers

I used to be, and if you followed me there, you can now follow me here

Yes, I realise the irony of my two pinned posts being "Hi I'm an instance admin" and "I oopsied an entire instance because I'm a doofus"

I've created a Gitea instance at
Mostly as a test thing for now, but one thing that's nice is that it's now hosting the code for this Mastodon/Hometown instance

On my way to Paris for Indiecade Europe, if you're around too, find me and say hi
I look like my avatar but my sweater is redder and headphones are grey

Hey, so I set up Gitea on my server last night, and it's pretty easy (for a Linux server thing), plenty of people running it on Raspberry Pis and other low-spec machines. A nice way to escape the GitHub/GitLab/BitBucket thing.

Also, I pushed the sources to my personal website, if people want to see how it's made

Git is already federated, anyone can clone public repos

Gitea and other similar services aren't just a collection of repos though, they provide a bunch of other services, and those services ought to be federated too

And now I see what people mean when they say they want an ActivityPub-enabled Git server

It would be cool if fediverse users could post issues, star, and subscribe to the commit/release logs without needing an account on my Gitea instance

I don't intend to have open account registration to this Gitea instance, but I'd like it if people could easily report bugs and fork code as if there was

It's three in the morning, and I'm still just as bad at figuring out how to set up Linux services

But chekkitout, I have my own Gitea server now! It's hosting this brand new Git repo

I started using GitLab because GitHub was doing some shady shit, all GitLab had to do was not do shady shit

GitLab does some super shady shit

With that in mind, I'm going to be setting up my own Git server soon, with a NoShadyShit™ guarantee, which shouldn't be too hard, all I have to do is not be an asshole to marginalised people, and not work with fascist organisations

GitHub: maybe working with ICE is ok? Our employees won’t mind, right?

GitLab: Hold my beer.

I put in a Google Drive folder:

- 265 pdf & pics & others
- 323 bookmarks (in the .html file)

Related one way or an other to transidentity (with a bit of intersectionality here and there)

Please share!!

If you're a cis ally and you'd like to support me doing this kind of work for the community, you're welcome to send me a ko-fi!

It'll go directly in me being able to take some of my work time for this
Thank you so much ✨

Capitalism: Communism would mean the death of ownership! Say goodbye to having any personal goods of your very own.

Also Capitalism: Sure, you have a right to what you own, but we never actually *sold* you a product, we merely provided a service/product on loan for which your payment has currently run out. *said about literally everything*

Trying to make a demoreel from old projects
Half of my projects are super-hyped up arcade flashy bullshit
The other half are slow, brooding meditative pieces

Here's my first shot at cutting together that first half

I made Halloween stickers and prints! You can get them in your house! While supporting me! Amazing 🎃
(Also available as cute totebags 👀)…

❗ Check the real-life size of what you're buying, I think the smaller sets will make very small stickers
