Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

I've recently been trying out as a desktop client, and I've really been liking it. The only issue I have with it (which is admittedly niche) that will keep me from using it long term is it doesn't have access to the instance admin tools. If you're not an instance admin or moderator, I highly suggest giving it a look.

They forgot the popup in the bottom corner, that tells people how many threats were averted by the proprietary application in the last hour.

Seriously though, #closeWindowsOpenDoors.

We encourage everyone to use a privacy browser that is derived from Firefox, but not Firefox itself.

So eithee TorBrowser or #I2P (InternetToProtectPrivacy) with IceCat, LibreWolf etc.

Can’t wait to actually have a release for this Lisp tamagotchi.

It has loads of cute emoticon pets, and is now being written to run natively in Emacs.

I have spent the last few years spending a few months trying to get screen-clearing and non-blocking keyboard input in SBCL, only to fail everytime.

Now, in Emacs, I have all those features!

When I get home, I’ll post some videos and screenshots of the code (:

Can I interest anyone on the in a FREE DRONE? It's a few years old, barely used because no one knows how it works, and it's pretty crappy 😅 supposedly there's a camera in it, but again, I have no idea how it works. We did get it to fly!

If interested I'll send it via parcel service (postal fees apply).
