Just had someone asking what instances are.

It's really, really simple:

The instance you are on is the site you signed up on.

Fediverse instances are connected, so that people on different instances can interact with each other. (It's kind of like phone network providers, even people using different providers can still call each other.)

Different instances have different owners, different rules etc. If you disagree with how an instance is run, you can move your account (including your follows & followers) to a different instance.

You can see which instance someone belongs to by going to their profile page and looking at the Fediverse address.

For example, FediTips is on the mstdn.social instance.

There's a really good animation from a couple of years ago which explains all this:

Don't you dare come for Halloween... I fought the fundies over this back in the day, and I'll fight anyone else regardless of their politics.

I'll die (and possibly rise from the grave) on this hill.

My first book is now available as an EPUB. PM for a free download link!

(I'm curious how many people are interested, and whether anyone else reads it.)

Book is 100% free with no drm or anything it's literally just a zip file with html-formatted text inside.

Here is my Silent Remix of Teenagers From Outerspace in VP9 and Opus.

It's 3.9 MB and 15.5 minutes for a bitrate of roughly 30KBps.

It's slightly higher bitrate than the absolute smallest video I've ever put together, but I think it looks much better than the other low bitrate videos I've done.

I was impressed with VP9. If I was prepping something for wide distribution on the cheap, I would probably use similar encoding.

I have no idea what I'd do with this... but it is certainly tempting to play with :flan_think:

(Please ignore the black bar running through the center of the screenshot, firefox can't handle sticky css elements when it takes its screenshots)
