A few weeks ago I stepped down as a maintainer for Fathom (open-source website analytics).


Just updated Mastodon on stinkt.online to v2.6.

What's new?

- Profile link verification. I really like the approach that was taken here!
- In-stream link previews. No third-party scripts are loaded until you press it, so there is no privacy cost to the convenience.
- Remastered DM's. Nice.


Been running Arch (with Gnome) on my workstation for the last week and am really digging it so far.

All hardware is working right away, system runs super smooth and the official repositories have all the software I really need.


, a month long celebration of open-source software!


We're celebrating along with @usefathom so if you're looking to get that sweet t-shirt this month, check out these issues: github.com/usefathom/fathom/la

@danyspin97 GoAccess is awesome - I use it myself extensively and love it!

I dream of a world where less tech-savvy web users could have access to it, but so long as they see command-line interaction as "the matrix" I doubt that'll ever happen. 😜

All in all; a great week for usefathom.com.

We got our first paying customers and they're happy! We're nowhere close to being able to pay ourselves but hardware costs are covered.

At this rate I'm hoping that with a few months of growth this can be a sustainable effort for all involved so we can lower costs for our early adopters.

Guess when our first 10M+ pageviews a month customer turned on his tracking? 😅

Pretty stoked to see how our managed Fathom offering is holding up during launch week. Everything is just running smoothly and barely breaking a sweat, despite handling thousands of pageviews a second already.

@ronaldlangeveld Thanks man. And thanks for the mention on the Ghost forums, appreciate that!

@teleclimber @aardrian Saw that on ProductHunt too, hope they can hold true to that “unlimited” promise. And hopefully they’ll open-source at some point.

Is it possible to run just one private Mastodon instance? Not connected to the other Mastodon instances?

Wide awake at 5AM, my sleep seems to be getting worse lately. Wonder if it’s because of us announcing Fathom Pro later today?

@aardrian @teleclimber We’d love to hear any feedback you might have. 🙂 It’s still fairly early stage but we’re making steady progress, I’ve personally already ditched GA for Fathom entirely.

Self-host all the things! If you're looking for a good idea of alternatives to services you can self-host on your homeserver or VPS, take a look at this list: github.com/Kickball/awesome-se

This company that sells clothing says it had to stop selling to EU because of GDPR. This image IS their site now, it says: "Blame your government (no, really)".

Really though? It's that hard to sell me clothes while respecting my privacy? You only have to blame yourself on this one 😂
