Do any of my friends out there know: Has SPICE been globalized? Is it being used and/or translated in other parts of the world?

A glass of wine, the record player playing, and a notebook full of notes needing transcribed into my Obsidian database. The perfect thing, for me, for an afternoon downpour.

I need a based that lacks all the sleazy stuff packs into theirs?

I've used Brave and it's okay but I'm not into all the extra BitCoin, etc. stuff they have there.

Is there a nice, stripped down, private and secure Chromium-based browser out there?

did a really nice interview and write-up of the new book @rhiannongrant and I co-edited.

The book is unique in its approach and voice within . A few folks on here have chapters on it too: @maco and @dbakins are two.

I'm glad to be here. I joined because of Twitter's failures, not just because of the horrendous new leadership but because I want something different from an online community. I hate the algorithms that rule our lives. Everything turned into a commodity. The popularity contests and the group mentality. I came here because I wanted something different from what Twitter is and offers. I'm happy to learn what it means to be on this platform and how to contribute. Thanks for having me.

Voted! Walked over to our neighborhood polling place with 3 kids and dog and voted. May Democracy prevail.

@LifeByStills I agree. And also it’s not like there aren’t plenty of other words to use.

It’s not hard to be sensitive about using words that describe/connect to marginalized people.

Or event better, no need to label it anything. Just come on over, say you’re new and get started. We all know what’s going on.

@Martinkelley@mastodon.social not gonna lie, I kind of want to make one now! 🤦‍♂️

@RebeccaWynter - Glad you posted your like. I'm looking forward to building a strong list as well. So let's get this thing started!
