HP Deskjet 500 was the first I bought myself. It was a big klunker of a thing with none of the longevity of the Xerox phaser that came after it but after using dot matrix before this, it was an awesome piece of technology.

For this one, I can see that. Thankyou!

The sailor insisted, "No, I assure you, I have the largest and most powerful wife."

Hi! This is the official #Bookwyrm account. Bookwyrm is a federated reading platform (think Goodreads). Post about your reading and stuff! You can interact with Mastodon users and vice versa. We are going to toot development news and more.

List of instances docs.joinbookwyrm.com/instance

At first, @matrix was "just" a modern alternative to IRC to talk on GNOME channels for me.

But the more I use it, the more I enjoy it. Having your own instance is really pleasant.

Of course not everyone is a systems administrator, let alone a competent one. There is a real need for small managed instances.

For people insterested, Element offers Element Home, a 10-person managed instance: element.io/element-home

Alternatively, Etke offers to manage services for you: etke.cc/
