Save

Please “steal” all of our TROM materials! We made these for you, and you, and you, and everyone. Trade free! Contrary to most organizations, we encourage people to download and share our materials. The more people having our materials, the more reliable it is for these materials to live in this digital realm. Note that the non-official sources are not managed by us, so use them at your own risk. We review each such source before we publish on tromsite.com, but we cannot control/keep an eye on these folders and the changes made to them. We call all of these options, “islands”. Anyone can create a TROM-island :). Just find an online file storage service, upload all of our files there, and share the island with us so we can publish it here.

SYNCTHING

official

This is the most reliable method to grab all of our TROM files at once. It is decentralized (you take them directly from us – no server), and the most up to date. You have the advantage of syncing our TROM Main folder with your local one, so it will automatically download the latest files (updates). The downside is that you cannot download individual files, only the entire folder, plus you need the Syncthing (trade-free) app for the job. Email us to give you access (that’s how Syntching works).

ARCHIVE (video/audio)

official

This is our official Internet Archive account where you can find all of our video and audio files that we also use to stream on tromsite.com. It is always up to date in regards to these files, but of course it lacks many of other TROM files such as our books in different formats, images, text files, pdfs, and so forth. One advantage is that you can grab these files directly from their servers or via the torrent file that they provide + they have automated conversions of files so you’ll find multiple formats to choose from.

KEYBASE

not-official

Keybase is a very interesting service that provides almost a trade-free file storage + multiple tools that revolved around this storage, such as chats, teams, and so forth. They provide applications for all platforms and direct access to the hosted files via any browser. This “island” is created and maintained by Alexio.

Tio
Thank you Anonymous donor who donated 100 Euros to TROM :D - thank you! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - fascinated about the latest financial support that we've got!
Tio
trom curated news are updating now ;) - whenever there is a new news you can see the notification. thanks to dave. was a little silly think that i had to change to work :D - but dave spotted it. dave, the man :)
Tio
Updated teh magnet torrent link for trom documentary since the old one was missing some files. anyways is here https://www.tromsite.com/ - go download and seed! :)
Tio
Youtube limited our API request quota - maybe is something they do globally. What this means is that our trom curated videos were using this API to pull videos from youtube in our feed, and youtube is like: "your quota is 30k requests per day". But we use 35k or so. That means many of the youtube channels/users/playlists in our list are not updated. Not sure how this will affect us in the long tun...is funny how in the "old" days you could use RSS that basically was reading a website's updates and you can use that to pull the updates into your own RSS reader. Like we do now with trom curated news. But this motha'fuckers invented the "social networks" and "API" so if you want to read the updates from these websites you need their permission and they will limit you. At least thats what I understand from it. ANyways....one more thing to deal with. dont like.
Tio
Newsletter sent https://mailchi.mp/d610573afa7f/a-bunch-of-big-updates - I hate sending them since we already have this live updates thing where I post constantly and we have a lot of work to talk about....but well...ok...
Tio
Updated https://www.tromsite.com/translation.html with the latest 2 tromcast videos + the latest "other" videos. All ready for translation!
Tio
Thank you Raimondas very much for the 20,00 EUR Paypal donation and the message: "Let's spam this planet with a trade-free idea! And don't give up, please!! All the best!" - thanks man! :) https://www.tromsite.com/donate/
Tio
4 great "how to" videos by the amazing Aaron are added here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#other - how to translate stuff from the master of translations! Now part of TROM gallery ;). Tomorrow I'll send a newsletter about the latest TROM updates and a few emails about TROMjaro to some youtubers and websites. After that I will deal with VideoNeat and some things that need to be fixed for tromsite.com ;) - and maybe I'll deal a bit with my personal website. I hope in 1-2 weeks to be done with all that and then start the work on the new documentary. GO!
Tio
And thank you to everyone who helps translate https://www.tromjaro.com - it is so easy to do it. Scroll down at the bottom of the website, select a language, then after reload scroll down again and click the "edit" translation button and start translating. If you want to translate a new language just contact us so we can add it to the list.

Today last health checkup for a while. All is good with my health. I'll write an update on my blog post soonish ;). TROMjaro.com comment section (the cool one) was disabled for now bcs ublock origin blocks some modules from it and fucks teh website up - reported here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/ublock-breaks-it. TROMjaro new iso is tested and kinda done. But need some time to write the changelog ;) - more updates in tromcast overall
Tio
TROM-Cast 34: Not-For Profit Organizations, TROM-Cloud, TROMjaro, and more ---- is tomorrow's TROM-Cast ;)
Tio
Thank you so so much Savadey for the 100 Euros Paypal donation! And the message "Keep up the good work. Much love," Wow that's amazing! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/
Tio
Ok so I'm over the moon cause Dave finished the tromjaro iso :D - tomorrow we'll have a chat about soem stuff and will very likely release it. the guy is amazing! true!
Tio
Oh Roma....you fuckin' human :D - you are always there to help. Thank you for the 100 Euro donation man! And the message "Hope you’re all doing ok, miss you all guys as fuck! Best of luck and thank you for keeping the fight for our trade-free future! Much love❤️ " - take care of you Roma and I hope to see you soon. You know, I'm not that "social", but I really liked you I told you many times when we've met. You are such a great, calm, and wonderful human :D
Tio
This month I have 200 Euros. That's all. Luckily I paid the rent and insurance already. That means pay internet, electricity, and food for this month with 200 Euros. Luckily, again, I have some great parents who (from their own money - very few off) kinda feed me from time to time. That's the situation and I was always transparent with it. Anyways. It is what it is. Will see... ;)
Tio
150 rent + 15 Internet + 50 electricity + 50 health insurance + 60 servers + 20 other like hootsuite, domain names, etc. Total of 345 Euros a month for me. 75 Euros money for food. That's great :). I'll eat just bread haha. Damn this is shitty haha.
Tio
Thank you to all of you who continue to support TROM via donations - https://www.tromsite.com/donate/. Our donations are dropping every month. This month 10% drop in donations. We get around 420 Euros a month. 60-70 go to our server, the rest to rent, electricity, food, living. Meaning, trying to survive with around 350 Euros a month. This is impossible. We work a lot on many projects but it is not sustainable unfortunately. We will release a new TROM-jaro iso, and make VideoNeat "great" again with more documentaries added to it, and then when all of these sites are up and running (I'll say a month) I (Tio) have to take some decisions in regards to this. I can't work every day for these projects but be unable to live in this society. And now things go so bad is simply impossible to get out of it unless we get sustained monthly donations. I want to make a new documentary about "trade", a trade-free portal, and trade-free media to share lots of free to use footage. But none of this will happen (at least not soon at all) without a big increase in donations. So, if anyone thinks what what we do (videoneat, tromsite, tromjaro, musikwave, and more) is important, please consider a donation here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - I know, it is tiring to hear me complaining about the lack of support, but so it is for me :(. Let's see if we can get more financial support.
Tio
Dave worked so much on tromjaro and we are so close to release it. the release is a lot more important than just a release. for the end user is not much, for us is a lot. bcs it is a new way of managing tromjaro. i cant explain how much work dave did for the past days. we also have this live chat now (thanks to tromcloud) to provide support for tromjaro and dave also helps with that a lot. dave, what a guy :) - :D - we'll plan for the next tromcast too, and i also added more apps to tromjaro.com (scheduled). Gia continues to make icons for tromjaro...work...work guys...
Tio
I think I am done with tromjaro.com. Tomorrow we may release the new iso :P - mostly up to how much of dave-awesomness we have tomorrow haha. I love tromjaro.com ;) - when/if distrowatch will post about us, then we will get a lot of attention to it and the trade-free idea!
Tio
A new tromjaro install page https://www.tromjaro.com/install/
Tio
Added a submit feedback for tromjaro page https://www.tromjaro.com/feedback/ ;)
Tio
added an app submission form to https://www.tromjaro.com/apps/ - i hope i wotn get spammed :D - also restructured a bit that page. i feel like it is done now :P
Tio
a, and tromcloud helps a ton now! so glad we use it! ill present it to everyone soonish! ok. go tio friend and relax for a day. ok, ill do! thanks.
Tio
Here's the new tromjaro.com home page https://www.tromjaro.com/ - tell em you dont like it!? :D - i love it. it explains tromjaro much better. it is designed for the next tromjaro release tho as some apps are not preinstalled as the homepage mentions. nevertheless...great! new iso coming soon! Dave is such a mate! The guy helped with tromjaro recently like crazy. The guy is such a human! I love him :) - i need to redo the tromjaro install page and add back teh doante button. but tomorrow is IDGAS Friday: I Dont Give A Fuck Friday. My day off. I'm experimenting with it...so...no work for me tomorrow :P - bye
Tio
tromsite small design errors fixed. today tromjaro again. no tromcast. let me deal with tromjaro first and tromcloud, then next week we can talk about them and otehr stuff :P
Tio
CARL thank you so much for the 20 Euros donation! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - you great!
Tio
ok i think i fixed tromjaro. tromsit.com not a lot to fix except some buttons...will do so tomorro
Tio
Some updates to some plugins broke several things in terms of design for tromsite and tormjaro...fixing tromjaro now....will take 2 hours or so....
Tio
and tromcloud helps HUGELY! improved it too....lots of stuff happenin'
Tio
Too busy and too much work to update on what we did today :D - tromjaro work!! Dave....this guy is amazing. He helps with tormjaro so much i cant describe. I'll tell you more. But there will be a new cool page for tormjaro + new iso soon :D
Tio
New book: OverTourism https://www.tromsite.com/books/audio/ - almost 1h long. Great job Seb!
Tio
Ok so I ended up creating categories for tromjaro apps and improve the search engine. have a look https://www.tromjaro.com/apps/ - i think is an awesome one! see two of the biggest linux online "stores" from ubuntu https://snapcraft.io/store and redhad (flathub) https://flathub.org/home - I think in terms of design we are slick as fuck haha. Maybe I'm biased but I love it. And, ofc dont see it on mobile you mannaik. No good website looks well on mobile :D - this is for desktop where websites should be browsed on :P - anyways, I love it. And now it is automated so whatever apps I add goes into the respective category + featured list + search engine. GOOD
Tio
A brand new TROM-Jaro support page https://www.tromjaro.com/support/ :) - we are getting better at this. Dave is also cooking some interesting stuff with TROM-Jaro :)
Sofie
Another 12 icons done! I like to work in bulks, so a bunch at a time and then none/my own stuff for some time. I’m mostly 0% or 100% :-)
Tio
Now we have a "featured" apps on tromjaro https://www.tromjaro.com/apps/ - I think that's cool to have. They are mixing randomly so every-time you refresh the page you see new ones and in different order. I tried to add categories and such but too much of a headache...right now I think is fine ;)
Tio
I updated the curated news and videos module and right now you wont get a notification when there is a new post there...needs to be fixed.... :P
Tio
It was a nice day :) - I still did a little work but still a nice day. Maybe I am more productive today. I am all VideoNeat today. Le'Go!
Tio
Yesterday was ID-GAS Friday: I Don't Give A Fuck Friday. Something new I am trying. we'll see if it gets implemented :D - basically I want to force myself to take 1 day off from any online activity, every week.
Tio
So several of our websites got massive amounts of hits making ours server lazy and restarting it. Very likely bots. Working on fixing it. Some websites might not be available for the next hours sicne I'm activating soem security features for them.
Tio
We did not do a tromcast today :D - I work on some stuff and I didn't want to interrupt my brain-flow. Anyways, now more mechanical work: videoneat. Let's get that puppy back on track. ;)
Sofie
Hello out there! My very first live update..
I had the idea of engaging a bit more with those following the TROM instagram; show more of the people who create this project and allow for a more personal affiliation with the project.
Anyway, long story short with some back and forth - the instagram will keep being about the project and not personal. More people have been given the instagram login and they will mainly be posting on the stories if they do TROM work to show what they are doing for TROM. Besides that the TROM instagram will remain as before.
Tio
Dave is now gonna deal with TROMrepo, which is a FANTASTIC news! Massive help for me! I can focus on other stuff more. So, for example, I want in the near future to make articles on tromjaro.com showcasing what apps to use to edit photos, videos, and so forth. To build websites, to watch and listen to media, to do this, that, and the other. I think would be helpful for people :). Lots of new apps and themes/icons added to tromjaro.com recently - but is "one per day" scheduled ;) - I don't want to spam people with them.
Tio
SciTechDaily is a good source of info but they post a lot, taking most of our tromnews "slots". So I see they have a youtube channels and I added it instead. Videos are also easier to follow ;)
Tio
Scheduled even more tromjaro apps, icons and themes :P - Georgi makes more icons now, which is great, Dave helps with TROM-Jaro a LOT (great guy!), and I just upgraded the server to 4GB of ram again .... 60 dollars a month. Everything was shitting the bed with 2GB of ram...we could not even work on websites...need to do a donation campaign asap to pay for it else im fucked :D
Tio
Scheduled a lot of tromjaro apps ;) - good ones. nice! gia and sofie are also making new icons for other apps so when they are done with them I'll add more ;)
Tio
Toady was kinda teh IDGAS Friday, something new I am trying. I Don't Give A Shit Friday :D - went well. Just that this "free" time made me realize I am so broke I can't explain. By my latest calculations I only have 100 Euros so far, for this month. I will for sure ask for more help these days in terms of donations but I am kinda sick to put the pressure on others to donate. Will see. I wanted to start making this new documentary but is kinda hard to take on this challenge. I will perhaps make a donation campaign (or "appeal") for this. Like if I raise enough money I'll do it, if not will see. So, the great thing is that my health is ok. I care about that the most. The rest will see...may or may not happen ;).
Tio

I was kinda busy with life these past days....I needed some of that :D. I'll get back to my working routine from now on ;) - still adding apps to tromjaro. One more week and I'll be done with them for a while.
