Florence, asking for participant in something fun!
So, who here loves planning Fundraising Campaigns? Because I sure do!
In the past year I've had this idea at the back of my head, burning, since I couldn't use it last summer with Mastodon, now instead I get to use it with Florence!
However, I don't think I can do all the ideaing myself, so I'd love to bring on a small team of people (max 5 in total) who would like to work on a Crowdfunding Campaign for Florence with me!

Just some stuff I've learned about bike commuting over the past year or so.

I mean, I'm not saying that you can shut that guys website down entirely by just requesting thumbnails real fast, but you absolutely can.
I'm also not saying you should, that would be very rude. I'm especially not saying that a script very much like this one would do it: https://pastebin.com/przSnqHr
fundraising, legal fees (boost with CW)

OK, I'm asking for money (the first time ever). Please boost!
I need to come up with $175 to arbitrate with a law firm. If I can't come up with the $175 I am going to lose over $1,000— which will financially devastate me.
You can read about the whole situation here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-me-fight-an-unjust-invoice-from-a-law-firm
Please help, even if you can only give $3 or $4!
Yo, people who run instances, you might care about this
Apparently there's some vulns in Linux that let you use a ton of system resources or cause a kernel panic over the internet with some TCP features
Good news, you can work around them all pretty easily without compiling your own kernel
He looks so cute but I'm sad the photo can't share with you the cutest thing: his tiny snores while he is sleeping.
Meta, Sunbeam.city, Anarchism
But also I really don't have time for the weird hearsay and shade that passes around the Fediverse. People just talking shit about Sunbeam who don't know anything about the situation.
Cancel culture is bullshit and reactionary and will never help build a anti-capitalist movement. Actual transparent and accountable community justice infrastructure will.
IMO, it demeans the very nuanced and intelligence critiques that folks such as Pip and Carin have made who have actually been involved in the project.

Why CW eye contact?
In my personal experience as someone who has been forced for years to make eye contact with people, it makes me super uncomfortable to make eye contact at all (even in physical space)
It makes me feel itchy, paranoid and my anxiety goes through the roof (especially on Bad Brain / critically low spoon days).
Also tagging your selfies gives consent to other folks, which is always a plus.
This is why I'm very *anal* about this
I got the honor of merging this into #Tusky today \o/
We will not facilitate Gab on our app.
Thank you everyone for your patience with slow replies from this account!
I hope I caught everyone, and am trying to create issues where needed.
If you have bug reports, or feature requests both #Tusky and GitHub will work slightly better than just mentioning this account.
I'm going to check in a lot more regularly now, thanks again for your patience.
