I have created a simple little website to help keep the sad away by showing random pictures of cute animals. It's still a work in progress, notably in that I want to add something for folks using screen readers. It also has a fairly small collection of pictures; if anyone would like to contribute, feel free to shoot me a DM with pictures!

Its URL is (for the time being, at least) sadaway.neocities.org - enjoy!

if i were writing system code in C, i would simply,, be divinely perfect and write impenetrably safe code

Just a friendly reminder

Mastodon doesn't need your patreon money nearly as much as your local instance owners do

Dadly advice from me 

If you ever do a bad job at work, don't worry about it. The only reward you'll usually get from doing a great job is more work for the same amount of money.

me, weeping: "please stop making me think about capitalism"

A few days ago in Pantelhó, Chiapas, the local indigenous community organized armed self-defense groups, kicked out the narcos and politicians, and set fire to narco property.

Following the action, a member of the self-defense group "El Machete" gave this speech (roughly translated):
"It's for this reason that on 26 July, all the communities of this municipality went to the municipal capital, to take justice into our own hands and invade the homes of the murderers, narcos, not the innocent people.

Now we ask Mr. President of the Republic if you still want to help us indigenous people. If not, then you had better intervene no longer.

Long live the people of Pantelhó! Long live the indigenous people!
Long live our self-defense!"

The Star Trek mirror universe is what would happen if the US won the Cold War. Thank Christ that didn't happen, huh?

you're telling me an up shut this fuck

you're telling me a boy webbed this site

HomeTown is a fork of Mastodon which lets you make instance-only posts, adjust character limits and read long form rich text blog posts.

It's still part of the Fediverse, and HomeTown users can interact with Mastodon users totally fine.

Tech people can get self-hosting instructions here:

github.com/hometown-fork/homet

Non-tech people can use a managed hosting service to start their own HomeTown instance:

federation.spacebear.ee

I've gotten Captcha requirements on sites I didn't even know had Captcha

it's cool and good (read: sucks ass and is bad) that websites don't trust Epiphany and subject it to further security measures like captcha

So the current idea for funding gotosocial, which I've been discussing with some friends, is to officially constitute SuperSeriousBusiness as a non-profit developer cooperative, registered in Belgium. Then SSB will generate cash money by selling hosted Parakeet services (github.com/superseriousbusiness/parakeet). Then, work done on GtS or Parakeet by members of the coop, or by external contributors, can be billed to the coop.

I've cornered the market. It cannot escape.
