The old-school technologists knew the dangers of a time-share "system". This is one of the reasons the first thing that the remarkable hackers of their day figured out was how to stop that nonsense.

One of my philosophies as a relentlessly self-taught lady has been to always regard skeptically the younger generation of "hackers"; they can't or won't see the big picture. They are vulnerable to things they cannot even begin to comprehend.

It's evidenced, of course; but the question is:

Mastodon for admins tutorial is ready.

Great news: I was able to go back in time and restore the server: github.com/indie/mastodon/blob

I do not apologize for being awesome. Nor will I let some greedy server farm's anti business model destroy something I've worked on for over eight years.

That's how much Salesforce insiders have dumped in the last year preceding this lawsuit. They knew about this happening to immigrants, underage, and others. This hypocritical company is NOT ethical and any awards it gets for humanaitarian efforts are . Whomever is promoting it as such should be flushed down the toilet.

Spreadsheet for the proof.

Why gopher? It apparently has some very old roots online, and there are some fascinating things ejnet.org/rachel/rhwn040.htm

So far:

1. cloned source from github
2. built onxy binary
3. edited onyx.json as described in the README to include the path of my newly-built binary
4. copied that onyx.json to several places as described in the Native Manifest doc: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/do
5. browser recognizes the address, slowly waves progress bar, says "Timeout on connect" ...

Anyone out there successfully built the Linux version of the Firefox plugin for gopher protocol (it's named OverbiteNx addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef) ... I think I'm so close, but it is giving me timeout error for this:

Someone should build a raspberryshake.org that integrates with epub-like content instead of the travesty that is Twitter:

SILLY IDEA:

Alarm clock that motivates you to get out of bed early; and when you're out of bed by 4:04 AM, it reads

"404: Human Not Found"

🤓 Would need a sensor of some sort on the bed, I'd imagine.

Woke up way too early with turmoil churning away in my mind.

Very important that independent server instances realize the MALWARE version 2.9 of Mastodon is attempting to inject via app.json; the settings should look something like this:

Red counters on notifications are specificially designed by social media "engagement experts" to be anxiety-inducing.

We need a color which is like "you have a notification, but don't worry about it, you can see it when you feel like it".

I like how #Pinafore did it. In fact, there's a lot to learn from Pinafore on ethical design.

Ethical tech should let people use it with intentionality and purpose unlike the manipulative tactics of surveillance capitalist tech.

Yeah, so the "trending tags" feature of Federation Bot is boosting spammy and disgusting tags. Time to unfollow @federationbot

2020 will be too late for the majority of Americans' unfortunate lack of hindsight, we have to get rid of the people protecting the corrupt Executive branch.

Those trying to delay will surely get clobbered first, as we can be 99.999999999999999999999--> percent certain that the Executive will be the first to topple under the weight of its own rot.

I quit boozing ~ 8.5 years ago. Growing up, books were my friends because they were like portable escapes. Alcohol, though, had a different allure: to unlock my fearlessness.

It was monumentally difficult, at first, to admit when I was done being used by the illusions and lies. Like many deceitful things, booze aggressively uses any space it can to fuel more corruption.

Trump is all booze.

To be sober is to do more than "want" to expel corruption; the expulsion has to be an action defined.

What do those with delusional notions of power influence? The "billionaire" GoDaddy CEO Outright murdered (at least 1) elephant(s) and other wildlife for "trophy"; those are bad men.

Money cannot buy time, nor can it influence or control systems of accounting that began ages ago.

For those who seek to avoid accountability, the eventuality of "for each and every action there is an ... opposite reaction" must further expose motives of the corrupt men in their own fates of doom.
