Hmm there's not a big fanfiction scene here on the fediverse huh? Or fandom in general. I know there's at least one instance dedicated to fandoms, but last I checked there wasn't much.

@werwolf @kura @mangeurdenuage Google is keeping Firefox alive and has alot of jnfluence kver its development. Firefox also isnt stopping harmful standards since if google wants to jam through a bad standard they can do it with their 90% market share. Giving money to mozilla wont help keep the web independent.

U ever think about how a corporation can pry into your life and at worst get a slap on the wrist but if you pry into their code you can get sent to jail? 🤔

How many (serious) internet service options are there where you live?

Does anyone know of an online community for loved ones of the mentally ill? Or even something related. Could even be on a proprietary platform—I'm desperate.

@joeligj12 An additional note I’d like to add is that on Mastodon you see a lot more small accounts from regular people. I feel like Twitter pushes users towards large accounts that are more of a brand. Totally different experience.

We offer Joycon repair services! As of this post, we haven't gotten our tutorial website up yet, but in the meantime, we're happy to offer repairs: we can discuss what needs to be done and give you an estimate.

We only charge for parts and shipping + handling, we do not charge for labor.

Analog Stick replacement, for example, is $8 USD + S&H per pair.

DM us for details if you're interested, and we'll have the tutorial website up soon enough!

Whoa, Twitter doesn't let me tweet direct links to a Matrix chat room!

I tried 3 times on the phone and it failed silently, and the web client gave me this message at the bottom of the image.

Someone's campaining against FOSS social network alternatives.

In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.

If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.

If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.

If you are on Linux, and have SoX installed (it's 1 small package), then here is a bash alias to let you have relaxing ocean waves+waterfall sound playing, for if it calms you, or helps you in any way-- completely offline and lag-free. I'm using it as I fall asleep at night; gitlab.com/-/snippets/2066323 - thank you for inspiring me @WhirlyTheGig

My sister asked me where she could find #drmfree #ebooks today, but I didn't really know.

Then I looked around and found the list made by #DefectiveByDesign:

I created this "Maslow's hierarchy of jobs" about 20 years go. Iv'e found to be good guide for when was time to move on (or stay). If you're failing at one or more of the lower 5 levels (pay not likely to continue, getting paid but nobody cares what you do) might be time to find a more productive gig.

You probably won't see this from HR in goals setting and performance management sessions.
