Beehive is like an open-source, self-hosted version of IFTTT.
... and it supports Mastodon!

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.
Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.
Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.
One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir_Technologies) and on the board of Facebook.
I do not recommend using Brave.
Interesting project, open source music:
Note that this isn't just free recordings, but MIDI-style files with individual notes and tracks in a form that can be copied and remixed 👍
It is the source code of music

If you’re not a transport geek, maybe the Swedish Ikea catalogue read cover to cover is more your thing? Varsågod: http://ikeasovlinjen.libsyn.com/ikea-katalogen
