@BirdsiteLIVE @garritfra I'm sure something like this already exists, I just haven't found it yet.
I've thrown together a quick index of available BirdsiteLIVE instances here: birdsites.wilde.cloud/

Anyone from UCEPROTECT here?
Gotta have words.


It feels very extortiony. As much as I agree with being stern about email security and mail server operators should have things set up properly, I've now got to pay to not be caught in other people's mess where my mail server obeys the rules strictly itself. Not happy 😡

Hot take: eMMC drives in laptops are a user-hostile technology designed to push people to put their data in The Cloud(TM).

This is Bad Internet.
Naughty Internet, no!
Put that JavaScript down!
