So I wrote a blog post for the first time in 5 years, warning about hcaptcha's accessibility account. Long story short, they banned me from the accessibility account because I'm not blind. I am blind, but well, they seem to think not. Please boost, share, etc since this seriously affects me, and it's not ok at all. You can read the full blog post here:

**Wo bleiben die Universitäten im Fediverse?**

Warum betreiben Universitäten nicht schon längst eigene Mastodon-Instanzen?

Warum bekommen Studierende nicht mit der Immatrikulation auch einen Mastodon-Handle?

Warum hosten Universitäten Vorlesungsvideos nicht über PeerTube im Fediverse?

Es gibt einiges, das für ein stärkeres Engagement von Universitäten im Fediverse spricht.

Ein Aufruf den man nur unterstützen kann! #boost

To all the indie devs out there:

In case you didn't know, I make open source indie games for the blind and visually impared. This means I need high quality sound effects. I'm wondering if any of you fine people have good resources on finding creative commens, and similar, freely usable sound effects that I could put in the repo with my code? I'd love to learn more about that.

For the record, I know about, and have even used them on occasion, but finding anything remotely useable on there can be a chore and a half. Contrasted to the simple search and filtering on something like, say, audio jungle. Tips would be greatly appreciated!

Please #boost if you have any game dev following... Thanks!

I've been posting some videos of slay the spire to my peertube channel (, and I'd like some input on other games people would like to see me play. To that end, I've attached a pole to vote on, which will help me prioritize what I make next. Don't worry, slay the spire will continue to be played too :-) Note I will accept suggestions for games to show off, but I can only play a game if it's accessible to the blind, or otherwise has a mod to make it so, so keep that in mind. As much as I'd love to play FFVI, for example, I just can't. Please vote and #boost if you are able.

Here it is. The latest track I’ve released, and the first video clip I’ve ever done. It is, of course, Space Pop (feat. Kaaren Elizabeth Smith).

Kaaren is a long time friend who I used to co-host a weekly karaoke night with, at a small town bar called The Reef back in the 90’s!!

One of the goals of the Dgar Project is to write new songs, and record them with friends that I have some kind of music related history with. When I got the opportunity to record with Kaaren, I took it.

Kaaren, on the day, was amazing. I sent her a demo of the track to practice and listen to a week earlier. She did some really quirky takes. It’s all her voice too. There’s no auto-tune. There’s no pitch correction. It’s all her. So much fun.

The “doo doo doos” she does was originally a melody I played on a distorted electric guitar. On one of the takes she does these “doo doo doos” over the riff. It just sounds so cool, I replaced my guitar track with her vocals.

I also hope you enjoy my #Blender project that makes the video in all its 8 frames-per-second glory!

Please enjoy the #scifi #Dgar #indie #cult #musicvideo Space Pop (feat. Kaaren Elizabeth Smith!

Please find and give the song a “favourite” on your preferred streaming platform if you enjoy it.

Add Space Pop to a playlist!

Or don’t. I’m not your boss.

Thanks for all your support! 🙏
I love you all!! 🫶

Krásný den přátelé #fediverse a naší instance. Aktualizoval jsem Nyní naleznete ve svém profilu, záložku My Portfolio.
#opensource #pixelfed #czech #boost

The domain automatically creates mirroring #Mastodon #bot accounts upon any #Twitter handles put into their search field, without authorization by the original Twitter profile owners.

I doubt, this is #legal, under EU law at least & find it highly #disturbing, that anybody can create bot accounts referring to others, who are neither aware of this nor authorized this in person.


Please boost, so mastoadmins can take action.

Direct Messages on Mastodon are probably one of the most confusing things for new users as they aren't really like messages on other platforms.

I have done my best to explain what they are in a few minutes for you all here. Check it out and let me know if it helps.
More tips still to come so stay tuned.

Please give it a #boost if you can to help spread the knowledge around the Fediverse. :ablobcatrave:

I love seeing all the new members joining the platform, but this does mean that with more people, you may feel the need to #mute or #block an account on #Mastodon. That is fine, your experience on this platform should be dictated by you and you alone.
So, I made this short guide to help you better navigate how to use this feature.

Please give it a #boost if you can to help spread the knowledge around the Fediverse.:ablobcatrave:

#FediTips #MastodonTips #YouTube

A little known feature of #Mastodon is the ability to create your own personal notes about an account.
This is a great way to potentially remind yourself why you follow particular accounts (or just about any other reason you can think of).

Also, these notes are private. The account does not know what you have written down, nor the fact that you have even made these notes.

Please #boost to help spread the knowledge around your networks. ☺️

I'm going to #boost this a bit, to at least broaden its reach. Likes/favorites don't play into an algorithm here (thank goodness) and don't help visibility, and not all servers are federated (and some federated feeds are firehoses anyway).

@bookstodon, if you're tired of having to throw out still perfectly working #tech that suffers #PlannedObsolescence only because the closed-system software bricks them, check out this #petition.

Same to artists everywhere, @Curator.

#JoinFediverseWiki is almost ready for it's official launch in 8 days.

Right now I'm gathering feedback from people who are not deep into the Fediverse yet.
What you can do to help:
* #boost this post.
* show the wiki to your non-fedizen friends and forward me their feedback.
* of course you can give me feedback yourself even if you're a Fediverse veteran.
* help edit the wiki. For now I wrote almost everything myself.

Happy holidays everybody. 🎉
