I completed my first day using the full-time today. Or at least as full time as possible. There were some things I had to figure out, but overall I feel like after a year of owning this phone and tinkering with it, it's nearly to a point where it'll be daily driveable soon.

There's been lots of talk about "moving forward" and “healing" among Republicans. Here's how to help if you're sincere.

1. Say out loud that America had a free and fair election in November. Point out that Republicans won on the same ballots as Democrats.

2. Acknowledge that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election and will be President and Vice President. Say that, for the good of the country, you wish them the best.

3. Show you understand that on Wednesday the U.S. Capitol and legislative branch of our government was violently attacked by right-wing domestic terrorists. This may not be your fault (unless you are Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, or one of the others who helped incite this attack) but you can make a huge difference by condemning it.

4. Urge all people to stay away from and not participate in violent demonstrations in Washington D.C. and state capitols so that we can honor the peaceful transfer of power that is the hallmark of our democracy.

Thanks in advance.

I am making more of an attempt to use my more. Am using it to post this with . Hoping to hang around here more. 😊

Controversial Opinion 

The best file manager is your terminal.

Well what did you expect asking the Bitcoin lunatic in your family why they made a choice on the internet? 😂

@CrowderSoup Is anyone else as obsessed with tui/cli tools as I am? I might have a problem :| haha

I'm testing out `toot`, a cli/tui mastodon client. Seems pretty neat so far, and certainly plays to my love of tools.

We have been working on a new moderation feature called Appeals.

Users will be able to appeal certain moderation actions, and admins will be able to easily reverse that action if the appeal is approved.

Shipping soon! 🚀 #pixelfed

Okay who will be the first FOSS conference to stream via the newly updated #peertube ?!

We wanted alternatives, we supported it, now we need to use it.

Make your mark on history, I dare you;)

Not sure why that didn't replace the ":smile:" with an emoji, but hey, still pretty neat!
