Pinned post

Okay, because of the decentralized nature of the social media platforms I'm choosing to use these days, I've encountered a greater diversity of opinions, and that's a good thing.

That said, I need to make one thing perfectly clear once and for all: you do not have a "right" to discriminate against others. This does *not* constitute persecution.

Yes, you *do* have a right to express your opinions, but this does not grant you immunity from criticism.

We just got hit with a *massive* storm out of nowhere. I was legitimately concerned that a tornado was on its way.

Power is currently out (hence why I'm not posting from the Friendica node I self-host).

@helpers It's worth noting that Ubuntu was using MySQL whereas Debian seems to be using MariaDB. I don't know if that's the problem.

@helpers I just changed my OS from Ubuntu to Debian, and when I tried restoring my Friendica node, I'm getting an error that the database is not set up correctly. I did a mysqldump of the old database and loaded it into the new one.

So, at this point I've read the first four books of The Odyssey, and I have to say, so far it's a lot less... graphic, which is a welcome change.

So this whole #Friendica #SelfHosting experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #fediverse.
Today is the first day of my "stress leave" where I haven't had a thousand things on my to-do list
@katy found a random pill lying around in the apartment. Neither of us have any idea what it is. Can anyone identity this?
Got up to make a coffee. Ended up cleaning the whole kitchen.
Just realized I'd left a pitcher of cold brew brewing in the fridge for about 46 hours instead of the usual 24.

That's gonna be some strong coffee.

Wordle (spoiler-ish) 

This one took me an embarrassingly long time to get for such a common n word.

one last test 

! Just want to see if Friendica forums work from Mastodon. Sorry for the spam.

Since I've opened my #Friendica node up to other people, it was time to include a Terms of Service page.

Decided it was best to keep it short and sweet.

Mistakes were made.

Basa Coconut Curry with Basmati Rice and Crispy Shallots

Went a little easier on the curry spice than the recipe called for. I gotta say: it was another hit.

Finally got email functionality working on my #Friendica node. Special thanks to @hypolite, who was instrumental in helping to fix the problem.

Had a surprisingly easy time with today's #Wordle. To be fair, I got lucky.

Hi !
We're trying to start introducing FOSS to young blind kids in Burkina Faso, and some of them show great interest in it.
Would you know of good podcasts or audio resources in French that we could provide them ?
Thanks !

I've been poking around on my #Twitter accounts little bit lately. It's not seen a lot of use since I found the #Fediverse.

It's interesting. I tell it whose feeds I want to subscribe to, and it just shows me whatever the hell it wants to anyways.

The Fediverse is better.
