The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

Those of you running your own Mastodon instance: Can you give me an idea of hardware requirements for a low/medium load on a single server?

I'm considering rolling my own for my friends and family in the New England area and I might like to expand it to become something more, depending on cost.

Thanks! :crazy:

In January, for the first time in history, Tails was booted more then 1.000.000 times. 🎉 *1

We celebrate that more people are protected by Tails and Tor.

We'd prefer to live in a world it wouldn't be needed, but things are as they are.
So if you have the time (and haven't done this yet) learn how you can use Tails to protect yourself and your community from surveillance and censorship, and keep spreading the word:

I set up a pretty awesome internet audio stream of over 140,000 MOD files; that's over 309 days worth of continuously streaming MOD music from 1987-1995.

@LiziPancake

You do not need to say sorry, that is actually one of the problems here.
You are expected to always show you happy side, and never actually talk about mental health.

Mental health is one of the most important aspects of life, and it really helps to write about it. It really helps.

So dont apologize :) Feel free to vent in order to normalize it.

it is a huge loss to the fedi and we realized too late that more solidarity would have been needed. we say goodbye and thank you for everything you did.
