Years ago (before becoming more privacy-sensitive #) I got a # # account.

Apparently I can't use it anymore with my email client (#) without giving Google my mobile phone number. Which I won't.

❓ What email provider would you recommend, that does not do shady things with my data?

It should work with an email client, which excludes web-interface-only providers. Preferably free if possible, but I am okay with paying a service I can trust.

I should have started with this:

I am working on a search engine #. Unlike a todoapp, it requires more hardware, having an idea of how much people are willing to spend upfront or by subscription renting a server will help me figure what kind of hardware I need to acquire to be able to test the algorithms.

Thanks for you cooperation! (and please boost!)

Hi fedi, I am going to write a guide to choose a fediverse instance. If you're on a public one, can you review it? Some hint questions, but don't feel limited by them:

- Is the local timeline active?
- Are people friendly?
- What topic do people often talk about?
- Is there a diversity in points of view or or do you feel more like an echo chamber?
- Anything noteworthy not in the about page?

Boost appreciated

I am looking at buying another SBC for variours projects. One being a Pleroma server another being a Peertube server. I would probably throw a SSD at these things to help save the SD card. But, I'm unsure of the pros and cons of the two popular SBC, Pine64 (Rock64/RockPro64) or the Rapsberry Pi(pi4 2/4GB RAM). Can the Fediverse help me out on this one?

Feel free to boost for more experienced eyeballs.

I'm a kindergarten coder. I'm mucked around with very some simple BASIC, Pascal, C#, and Python, I know the bare bones of Bash, and I once learned enough Git to be dangerous. If I want to earn a living from programming, what are the essential skills and knowledge I'd need to spend some time learning to be useful to an employer?

Where do you spend the most time in #?

I am in Local the most tbh

If you can boost it would be nice
