ICYMI: I've recently set up a instance. It's supposed to be a general purpose server for Poland. Registrations are open so feel free to join and invite your friends. Here's the address:

We compared 20 e-mail providers for use with Delta Chat and some do not provide "ICQ" capabilities ... meaning IDLE/Condstore/Quota features beneficial for instant messaging usability ... more details and results here ... and thanks for funding!

hello, I.T., have you tried turning it off and leaving it off?

Oh nice! 😎

Found this Danish ad for public transport elsenet and it made my day:

Snikket is a project to make XMPP/Jabber decentralised instant messaging much easier to use. You can follow at:

➡️ @snikket_im

The website is at

Snikket is releasing Android and iOS apps, and server hosting software, all with a consistent look, feel and branding.

The aim is to make XMPP easy enough for ordinary users, the same way Mastodon did with ActivityPub.

Interesting approach to making apps. The article kinda describes my own philosophy even though I'm not really a developer (yet).

Dear Fediverse, say I wanted to change my career path. I'm an academic teacher but as you probably know I dabble in Linux system administration (mostly Debian/Ubuntu). I'm sure I still have a lot to learn (e.g. automations, CI, backups) but I can already do quite a lot. I've been using Linux exclusively for the last 10+ years. I have experience with running several websites. I even played with Photoshop/GIMP (a long time ago). In other words: I'm the IT guy in my family (and beyond).

Would you recommend any places where I can look for a suitable job? Any general tips? I'm looking for either something remote or in the Lublin area (PL). Btw, I like my current place so I'd rather not relocate. Boosts welcome 🔁
