Pre Goes Loopy

When his band broke up during Lockdown, Pre spent a lot of time playing with himself. With his loop-pedal that is. Who needs a drummer when there are machine drums? And who needs a bass player when you can just play synth bass and then loop over it? Who needs a lead guitarist when you…

Installing Calckey

Calkey is a open-source microblogging server that uses ActivityPub. It’s a fork of Misskey – both are similar to Mastodon and other software for connecting to the Fediverse. Seems really nice on first glance. Shame there’s not likely ever going to be a way to port an existing Mastodon instance into a new Calckey on.…

April 2022 Digest

The drama this month was mostly online with the reaction to Musk deciding to buy Twitter.
