@toad : la prima cosa che mi viene in mente è: switch to English.
In ogni caso, i contenuti fruibili in italiano, in qualsiasi campo, sono sempre una misera fettina rispetto alla totalità.
Inoltre, può essere utile per migliorare la comprensione della lingua.
Big brands on Mastodon
It's funny, I don't even mind if big companies come to Mastodon. Let them.
The difference is over here, they can't buy their way into our timelines. They have to make their accounts attractive enough to us that we'll follow them and be willing to @-them when asking for support, etc.
And if they start acting badly, we can defederate their instances (let's face it, big corps are going to want to run their own instances if this takes off.) This will put, say, Microsoft, on the same footing as any other Mastodon user. They have to contribute something valuable, or we'll shut them out as a community.
I'm good with that.
After using Telegram for years in order to receive notifications from my servers, I've deployed my own lightweight #xmpp server (prosody).
I also rewrote my Telegram bot, intended to execute remote queries/commands, using xmpppy Python package.
Extra-bonus: a private and secure (end-to-end encrypted) messenger for family usage.
Just switched my personal git server and the corporate one from gitea to forgejo. They both are running fine.
Come and get involved at https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo !
You can find the background to the decision to fork at https://gitea-open-letter.coding.social
We'll have our first release out soon, which will be a drop-in replacement for Gitea. In the meantime, if you have any questions or feedback, we'd love to hear from you!

A couple of photos before starting a boring workday in IT (so they call IT).
@toad : I did it for other apps, no way for Google stuff (Xiaomi Redmi 9).
@toad no way since it's pre-installed. And - more important - no reason why GCal should start after a phone call (Phone is a Google app too, of course).
Anyway, I will survive with this...
On my Android phone (yes, I know...):
1) I answer a phone call.
2) Call ends.
3) I'm requested to unlock the phone by drawing the secret pattern.
4) Google Calendar, which has been set to have NO permissions, shows up with its initial wizard.
Every time. WHY?! 😄
(btw, I'm using Proton Calendar instead)
