    Finally! Another blog post full of our love from the digital world! We are almost running out of scheduled blog posts, but don’t worry, we’re going to fill it up soon.

  • Custom fonts for Misskey!

    Custom fonts for Misskey!

    Did you know that you can set up custom fonts for Misskey? If you follow our Instagram account, you’ll see some screenshoted posts from the Fediverse from our Misskey instance by using a custom font–that is the same one used on our website.

  • Once upon an Unix timestamp, there was a world where we are all robots…

    Well that sounds to be a starting point for an amazing science fiction adventure, but no. It’s our new name for our Fediverse clan at https://bots.reinhart1010.id! We decided to shift the focus from “Bearers of the Shells” (which many people still don’t understand what that is) to make it more unique. Kudos for Astrid for…

  • Let’s talk about Fediverse clans, shall we?

    One of the most confusing aspects of the Fediverse is well, the fact that it’s decentralized. You don’t (and shouldn’t) have to open an account at a Fediverse website to interact with the site. And with the rise of Fediverse servers, or instances, pods etc., people may afraid of impostors using their same usernames between…

  • Tidying up our email addresses

    A bit of history Our email journey starts with a humble Yahoo! Mail email address originally meant for school assignments and transferring files. Note that the grand era of Firefox Send, Google Workspace, and Microsoft 365 wasn’t there yet, so sending email attachments was the norm. Sure, that address was then used to sign up…
