Manyverse isn't part of the Fediverse, because it works very differently. It's part of the SSB (aka Scuttlebutt) network, and is trying to make SSB more user friendly.

However, the aim of Manyverse/SSB is very similar to the Fediverse: to decentralise social media. You may want to try it out!

Manyverse have just released their first desktop apps, so Manyverse is now available for all major platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, iOS). You can find out more and download the apps at:

They also have a Fediverse account at @manyver_se

I've previously posted that Manyverse is serverless, but this isn't quite true. It can be very difficult to reliably connect internet users peer-to-peer, so Manyverse uses special servers called "Rooms" to connect users. However, actual user data is not stored online, so data storage is still serverless. There's a video explaining Room servers at

I did it! Finally made a full video showing how I make isometric mini worlds in out of Creative Commons photos and images.

This world has a Japanese tea garden theme, and I ran the screen recorder while I made it, then added commentary of the process.

I'm looking for feedback on which techniques used people would most like dedicated step by step tutorials on, so please share your thoughts.

Why cities are better with cargo bikes.

We reduced the number of ingredients that appear on the Grimgrains homepage. As much as I liked having a wall of food, the site will now load faster :>.

Dervla Murphy, an Irish touring cyclist and author of adventure travel books.

"In 1963 Murphy set off on her first long-distance bicycle tour, a self-supported trip from Ireland to India. Taking a pistol along with other equipment aboard her Armstrong Cadet men's bicycle (named Rozinante in allusion to Don Quixote's steed, and always known as Roz), she passed through Europe during one of the worst winters in years."

Here's an update from @somnius, also shared on Patreon and OpenCollective!

"There's a reason mental health is through the roof and I think not connecting with nature is the main cause of that. So hopefully people don't get too caught up in trying to film every trip and take photos of everything and just enjoy it for what it is and just ride and have fun."

- Matt from Crust Bikes.

@liaizon Fediverse lacks economic incentive. It relies on goodwill. A solid ground to stand on ❤

First attempt at tempeh seems to have been a success, though there's room for improvement.

I think I should have dried the beans better and cooked them a little less. I suspect the extra moisture inhibited mycelial growth around the periphery. Lots of water droplets visible on the banana leaf.

@focus404 Keen to hear your expert input :)

Overall I'm happy. My incubator setup provided consistent temps and the process was fun.

Also, this should go without saying...
