Thinking a lot today about being a better person over time but still being aware of how terrible a person I used to be, so:

In the spirit of Easter, if this toot gets 50 boosts I will link everyone to both of my poetry deviantart accounts, circa 2007, and you can roast the hell out me for eternity

Good morning, today's Reply All is like the pure uncut essence of Reply All and I am deliriously happy

Would anyone be interested in hearing about our #FOSS adventure? We''re a feminist non-profit in the midst of migrating from Windows to #Linux: servers and desktops! We try to be as #opensource as possible, for ethical, security and privacy reasons.

"Dark mode" is technically a downgrade considering we used to be able to theme the entire desktop GUI in whatever color pattern we liked and it would affect nearly every single application on the system.

"Remember: If it's not ISO 8601, it's not a date, it's just hanging out"

With the increase in webapps, and userfriendly #Linux desktops, with #LibreOffice being an incredible office suite and playing well with Microsoft standards, with #FreeIPA as a decent authentication server, using #Ansible for configuration, and with many more #opensource alternatives, I only see one barrier to organizations who want to work with #FOSS: knowledge.

I'm considering starting a blog or YouTube channel to share our opensource adventure. We need to stop reinventing the wheel.

the idea that you can stop working and travel and engage in hobbies and stuff is a good-ish kind of dream but it's very much a limited I-got-mine dream and doesn't fit with the majority of human history.

... a better dream would be for all of us not to have to wait until we're nearly 70 (if we live that long) and if we've had a job that paid much more than average and we had a retirement plan and we didn't have life catastrophes, etc. etc. etc.

... what if we could all travel and engage in hobbies and also work but in life-affirming ways and didn't have to wait for a mixture of privilege/luck/exploitation and living long enough to make that happen.

I'm blatantly reposting this on here, because it is beautiful

Just released a new version of #ForkAwesome 1.1.6.

Notable changes are adding a spell-check, #pleroma, #f-droid, #python or #archlinux icons.

We also have our own domain name for more independence and coolness ;) forkaweso.me

Spread the word!

Re: Mastodon.social’s role in decentralization @Gargron

I cannot help but bring up one solution that would be very effective here on a variety of levels: finishing the account migration feature so it maintains followers in the move.

I think this would dramatically lower the barrier to changing instances, the anxiety of losing existing relationships, moving between communities when interests change, and more.

Please, #MastodonDev. I think we really need this feature.

three paintings that made powerful impressions on me as a young person, like, crystallized some very specific and intense but unarticulate emotion, were 1) frida kahlos self portrait with thorn necklace and hummingbird (en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-P i havent found out how to fomat links nice here if u can do that so enjoy these cumbersome ones) where the thorns are drawing a few drops of blood and and a dead hummingbird hangs from them and flower-dragonflies hover in the upper corners echoing her

Late night on mastodon. All is quiet, save for the gentle whirring of people on fedi posting about code. Silently I loft a paper lantern into the air, its soft light glinting off of content warnings. Far off, someone screams that they're horny

that renowned Indonesian painter Affandi (1907-1990) has been abroad, to New York and Rome at least, and have painted scenes while there.

Didn't know until today hehe 😅
