@dtluna @are0h @sathariel The sadder part is how are0h implies that we can't relate to people with different physical characteristics to us, and we must pander to them in order to be more inviting. The funny thing is, most people don't have my skin colour and combination... but I am still able to relate to characters that don't, and even write stories about those that don't share the same features. Diversity in ideas is the diversity we need most, and it is often pushed aside in order to have physical diversity in agendas like this one.

This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?

The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.

You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.

You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.

Hmm. Is there a Fediverse gaming instance, or not really...? I don;t want to spam this account with non-FOSS stuff if I can at all help it.

This github fiasco makes me glad I host my projects by printing out all the code on paper and pinning the pages to a bulletin board in the basement of an abandoned warehouse.

Toying with font designs, here's a very constrained 6x6 pixel font, full ASCII range. Use for whatever you want as long as you want it to look retro-techy. Use lowercase at your own risk.

hmm, for €5/month, using sure looks like it'll take a lot of the ballache out of running a personal instance.

I hate spending money, but it's like one coffee a month. :thinking_up:

Other creatures can count
Other creatures have language
Other creatures even have culture

The biggest difference between us and other intelligent species on Earth seems to be coffee

Facebook: depression because all of your friends and family are closet morons

Instagram: depression because you aren't living on a beach with gorgeous friends like every other person on the planet

Twitter: depression because the world is a garbage fire and you must bear witness to the horror

Mastodon currently feels my older forum days, it's fantastic. I make a post about something and it reaches just enough people that generally someone reaches out with a similar interest and we connect from there

The FBI is claiming to have almost 8,000 phones it can't get into. But there are numerous companies offering to break into these phones. So if the information on these phones is so valuable, why won't the FBI use one of these services? The obvious answer is that they want to force Apple and Google to give them a back door. So the EFF is asking the FBI to prove that they really can't get into the phones or to shut the fuck up.
