Just disabled on my website cause you have to opt out and not opt in. That's some scummy shit there Google, but I guess it's on brand for them.

My website now has https! Surprisingly easy with certbot to be honest.

With all the recent news about and I've started looking into selfhosting a Matrix server for friends and family. I think I might be in a bit over my head but you don't learn if you don't try.

Gotta say, has been pretty nice to work with so far. Pretty painless transition from CentOS. Wonder if I should switch all of my homelab servers 🤔

Just started experimenting with being a zoomer this is all new to me. I kind of love it for the simplicity and customization. Weird to think how this is how instant messaging really started, kind of something we take for granted nowadays.


Just read this super cute comic on r/bisexual and now I'm sad and lonely. Here's hoping vaccine rollout continues smoothly so I can feel comfortable trying to date again.

We had a year to design a fair rollout of vaccine appointments and we just didn't even try. This is where ethics in tech comes in. This is why we need to train us all to ask from day one "how do we make sure everybody has access?" That didn't happen anywhere, as far as I can tell, and everywhere you look, vax access reflects the same patterns of privilege as every other precious thing in our society. It's a huge failure for tech ethics.

With it being today let me shill one of my good friend's new album. Super great chill for anyone interested.

The best description I've read about / is from @Matter, who described them as:

"A pyramid scheme masquerading as a decentralized system while really being centralized."

Honestly, shoutout to Craigslist for not being fully of tracking garbage and being FOSS friendly. Too bad more people don't use it.

And after an hour and a half on hold my problem was fixed in 2 minutes. I guess I'm glad it wasn't painful

Boost this if you want to be part of an explicitly anticapitalist technology liberation movement.

Listening to 100 gecs while failing to setup high availability on mariaDB is a mood.

So I just stumbled across for the first time and I have to say, I'm kinda hopeful for the future for once? To see a movement that both acknowledges and addresses the issue with human consumption is so refreshing. And many approaches are not technocratic, rather a sort of return to times of simple and community driven living, with a bit of modernity like renewables and low power tech. It solidified what I already wanted to do with my life into a single term, and its kind of magical.

Hey peeps, just got word that a Colorado trans sanctuary and alpaca farm has been under threat from fascists recently. They are currently raising money for community defense as the cops won't do anything, so if you got some spare change consider throwing it their way.

You know I always thought Megalovania by Toby Fox sounded familiar. I totally forgot he used to do music for homestuck and it was originally used for [S] Wake. Life is cyclical.
