Federated avatar service? CHECK
Integrated with existing projects? CHECK
Static content served by nginx only? CHECK
Welcome to my libravatar-nginx setup: https://git.shivering-isles.com/shivering-isles/libravatar-nginx
It's static, it's minimal, it's implementing most of the @libravatar spec.
What else should I do on a Wednesday evening?
Are you interested in a federated alternative to Goodreads that doesn't use Amazon?

Photographs of derelict buildings being reclaimed by nature by a Paris-based photographer named Jonk.
They're part of a collection called Naturalia: Chronicle of Contemporary Ruins
Y'all, imma issue a challenge:
Before buying a thing on Amazon, take just two minutes to see if it's available elsewhere online.
There's very often another seller that is price competitive, and free shipping is super common these days.
If you still wanna buy from Bezos I'm not gonna stop you, but it's worth at least checking for alternatives. Divesting yourself can be easier than you might think.

These are varieties of garlic. I'm looking for 'boutique' garlic grower in Europe or any pointers where these varieties, seeds, recipes and growing techniques would be shared and discussed.
Computers are rubbish. Deliberately and arbitrarily crippled in some cases and programmed to violate your privacy most of the time. The mobiles are designed to implode so you’ll burn cash you don’t have just to stay connected to fellow humans

I have too many tabs open in firefox on my phone. I have (unsuccessfully) been looking for a way to bookmark them. so they can be closed, and I can have a functional browser again.
The rather clunky solution I settled on was to use sync to get them on my laptop, where I could 'open all in tabs' and then 'bookmark all tabs' (I wasn't able to get the extensions which do this to work on mobile)
turns out there are 2179 tabs open. I wasn't ever sure of the number before.
During #36C3 #prosody devs created a module that would allow your #XMPP server to expose some #nodeinfo2 statistics to the-federation.info. This contributes to a better understanding of the size of #XMPP based federated services. After a week there are already 49 nodes with a little less than 470k registered users (0.1 MAU ratio).
The stats so far:
added two releases to the growing collection of my label's outings to #discogs
still some stuff is missing - like cat numbers from 030 to 037, and 039-042 and couple of physical releases. to be added soon! (-ish)
Darktable just had a major release! Photographers using Linux rejoice! https://www.darktable.org/2019/12/darktable-300-released/
I'll be putting this in a retrospective post, but I want to draw attention to the entire reason I did this project:
I am involved in discussions about future directions that the internet can go. My hope was that I could learn important things about how to constructively and cooperatively build technology by reading the discussions that internet pioneers had with one another.
I think I did learn a lot, and I hope to summarize it at some point.
