I want to say "thank you" to . There are plenty of toots here which I strongly disagree with. But the bottom line is, that behind each of those toots is a good-hearted individual. So thank you, for being you.

As the year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to extend my appreciation to all of you for the good times and laughs, throughout 2020. She's been a hell of a year but, we made it. From loved ones lost to great successes, this year has been a wild roller coaster of a ride. Whether you're working or enjoying it with loved ones, I hope all of you enjoy bringing in the new year and do so, safely.

Thanks, again, for making Fosstodon such a fun atmosphere and great community.

Has anybody used #namecheap for their #vpn? Does it support #wireguard? Curious since they state that they do not keep logs and seem to have decent prices for 1yr & 3yr plans.

Ah, first dark pattern discovered. Default search engine is Bing (fine). But when you change it to something else, it actually keeps the search on the new tab page as Bing. And it focuses the search bar when you open a new tab. So you still use Bing even though you don’t want to.
