Dear fellow Fediverse travellers,

As some of you have already noticed, I've been very active at my new Fediverse home, [João Pinheiro -](

I'm not going to close this account, but I've decided to make *Zotum - Hubzilla* my main residence in the Fediverse from now onwards. So, I would kindly ask you to follow me there.

Hoping to be able to continue this journey on your friendly company, I send you my best regards.

Take care and stay safe!

This might be bit of a faux pas, but I'd like to point out that the big guys also offer some DRM-free books as well. I've had some great finds from kobo such as the Giants Star series by James P. Hogan and the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. Just remember to check the bottom of the page whether it's DRM-free or not.

Windows 11 will only support 8th gen Intel (released in 2017) or newer, AMD Ryzen 2000 (released in 2018) or newer and 2nd gen AMD EPYC server chips (released in 2019) or newer.

Microsoft is also requiring a front-facing camera for all Windows 11 devices, except desktop PCs from January 2023.

Not only is Microsoft now one of the worst unsustainable and biggest e-waste companies, they're now also one of the biggest creeps with no ethics or moral.

Is the year of the Linux coming for real now?

Hey guys,

It is anounced on

- a relocation of the server is impossible.
- Please migrate all your accounts and contacts to other servers.
You can find a list of servers e.g. here:

Important: The app (formerly Pix-Art) is not affected!

Please share, because it seems there was/will be no server message!

"The requirements for #Windows11 include UEFI, Secure Boot, and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM). This is how Microsoft will make every piece of computing hardware submit to their whims within the next decade. Do you own your computer or not?"
