On #InternationalCatDay, treat your cat to a special gift.

You can travel easily with your cat, dog or ferret in the EU thanks to our 🇪🇺 passports for pets.

You can get a European pet passport at your local vet and take them with you on your next trip.

If you can recommend only one #linux book for a beginner, what is your recommendation?

@Tutanota Just signed up for an account.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this at the end of the first message I read: #Mastodon is first among ways to follow!

The EU welcomes the departure of the first commercial ship from the port of Odesa after months of blockage by Russia.

This is a first step towards mitigating the global food crisis, enhanced by Russia's illegitimate aggression of Ukraine.

There is no place for discrimination in Europe against people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity.

Today, we decided to refer Hungary to the Court of Justice of the EU over a Hungarian law that violates LGBTIQ rights and EU values.

Meta, need to FediBlock the FediBlock 

@feditips why do we even use federated software if we all just block each other in the end?

@fsf this to me is when the fsf really is at its best, when it is actively engaging with the community.

Just wanted to say sorry to this community for disappearing without a word for a time.

The stress of workin my tech job gave me a heavy tech overdose and spent some time focusing on non-tech experiences.
"Went to touch gras for a few months" as the kids say.

Happy to announce things are looking up and we can proceed with the usual shitposting.

@mjdxp Also, it's my device, it should do what I want, not what other people/companies want.

reminder that adblock is always, no matter the situation, completely morally okay. after all, if you're on a metered wifi connection or on mobile data, you're wasting your limited bandwidth to view those ads, so you're essentially paying to watch them. even if you're on an unlimited network, you're still wasting lots of time by waiting for pages or content to load slower due to ads having to load in.

@wuwei My reaction to your comment is: Please, please tell me this is some kind of extreme satire.

Friend, as long as I am forced to do the things I do not want to do, and the alternative of not doing them is to starve or be homeless, then yes that is slavery. Forced labor. Can you have any argument against this?
