Just disabled #FLoC 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.
Gotta say, #AlmaLinux 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 #IRC 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.
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.
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

So I just stumbled across #Solarpunk 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.

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. https://www.gofundme.com/f/23ihgxnlc0?utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link_all&utm_source=customer
