I just did the math from all my work last year and even only paying myself €1000/month and adding everything up (VAT + Social Security, Salary Tax and other business taxes) for every €1 of profit, I have to pay €0,50 to the government. This is in a small scale business without any employees (just me) and pretty much at break even after all taxes and my small salary.
It's pretty crazy that at this scale 50% of all the money I make goes to taxes.
Am I wrong to say that Mastodon is the largest decentralised social network?
Is there any other data that I can look at to confirm or deny this information?
Last night I rewatched Jodorowsky's Dune, I had forgotten about a lot of stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHR6hglVSgo
I have posted an idea for Mastodon moderation and spam fighting on Mastodon Discourse and would love to get feedback on it: https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/t/rbl-like-for-mastodon-moderation-and-spam-fighting/1400
I’m an iPhone user but Google’s Night Sight is the thing I have been wanting for years, the times I most want to take pictures are in low light. This looks pretty cool!

I have an account with blockchain.com that I don't use.
Today, I got an email from them saying they were doing a XLM (a crypto currency) airdrop (free tokens) that I needed to finish my identity verification to receive.
So, as all my details were already there, all I needed to do was send them a selfie.
It was the first time in my life someone paid me $25 for a picture of my face 😂
Obviously this is a marketing stunt but $25 for just sending them a picture of my face was pretty cool :)
I hate Thursday’s. Don’t know why but Thursday’s are usually the worst day of the week for me. #ThurdaysChild
In my head Bitcoin is always at $10k, it helps to have a rough idea on the values when looking at bitcoin, eg:
0.1 = $1000
Highly inaccurate but I find it helpful :) #BTC
Did you know that https://communitywiki.org/trunk exists?
It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.
Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.
If you are new to Mastodon or you are looking for more interesting people to follow, you should check it out.

I had to block some external instances on Masto.host shared hosting.
Here is why and how that can be reverted: https://masto.host/i-had-to-block-some-external-instances/
This was a tricky decision but couldn't think of a better solution.
If you have any suggestions, please do let me know.
Mastodon é uma rede social baseada em protocolos abertos da web e software livre e gratuito. É descentralizado como e-mail.
