Mastodon Is Easy and Fun Except When It Isn’t

Post from 2023 detailing feedback from bluesky users who had previously experimented with the fediverse:

"I went to talk to about fedi experiences with people on the very impure Bluesky, where I had seen people casually talking about Mastodon being confusing and weird."

Blogroll Network Map

"Websites can programmatically define a blogroll using OPML. These blogrolls help people who read your blog discover other websites you think are worth promoting. This project maps connections between websites, web feeds (RSS, Atom, and JSON feeds), and OPML blogrolls. The size and interconnectedness of the network can be tracked over time. Exploring the network can help you discover new websites recommended by bloggers you already follow."

Gpredict

" Gpredict is a real-time satellite tracking and orbit prediction application. It can track a large number of satellites and display their position and other data in lists, tables, maps, and polar plots (radar view). Gpredict can also predict the time of future passes for a satellite, and provide you with detailed information about each pass.

Gpredict is different from other satellite tracking programs in that it allows you to group the satellites into visualisation modules. Each of these modules can be configured independently from the others giving you unlimited flexibility concerning the look and feel of the modules. Naturally, Gpredict will also allow you to track satellites relatively to different observer locations - at the same time. "
