Turns out that using non-historically loaded language is actually easier to understand than the current mainstream.
White/black list? Awkard, not obvious if you don't have "white: OK, black: KO" internalised.
Master/[slave|servant]? Awkward, not obvious if you aren't used to absolute, totalitarian and static power dynamics.
I recently bought a "clever pun" domain fueled by the dream of having some online shop. Cost €10.
Dream has dissipated, domain is still here, accidentally making me of one those domain hoarders that sell with profit.
I got contacted. Someone thought of the same pun and inquired about the availability of the domain.
I just sent them the transfer code. Not every human interaction needs to result in some financial gain. Allowing them to pursue their dream is fulfilling enough for me.
Hello all! This is my first toot on Fosstodon. I previously tried hosting my own Mastodon instance about a year ago, but I found federation to be a bit difficult at that time and ended up slinking back to Twitter (go easy on me, please!). I found this instance through one of @kev’s blog posts and immediately knew I would be among like-minded folks here.
I’m Chance, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the community!
Debian, data privacy, and infra automation. I stan .
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
