the thing is, like, i have no patience left for proprietary software. zero.

things that are developed by volunteers, okay, it's buggy a bit or crashes sometimes, fine. but if you took VC, your shit had better be ON POINT when you release it.

Not satisfied with simply providing you with a list of almost 300 DRM-free e-book, digital comic, magazine, and RPG bookshops, we're also listing bundles!

@gabek I just started down this path with the same apprehension. good luck to us!

help a black trans man in law school 

Hey, I am a black trans man and I’m in the final year of law school. I’m going into a public service fellowship (LGBTQ rights and policy work) after I finish and am barred, but money is always an issue since we don’t work at big firms and make big salaries.

I’m trying to put aside as much money so that when I’m studying for the bar exam, I don’t have to worry about paying my rent here in NYC, food, and things of that nature.

My CashApp is $lucifugel. Private message me for my PayPal and Venmo. Boosts are okay!

I recall seeing a project that was inspired by the CSS of .

Someone extracted all the CSS niceties of sourcehut and made it a standalone project. But I can't seem to find it now. Maybe my search skills are poor. But I've spent at least 30 minutes searching for it though.

My memory is very vague, but I think it was on GitHub. I faintly recall thinking about the irony. I wonder if the project still exists. Does someone know about it?

In Germany researcher Lilith Wittmann found vulnerabilities in a campaignig app used by the CDU the largest conservative party. She reported them to the developers of the app.

Now she has received a letter by law enforcement informing her on an ongoing investigation in which she is named as defendant. The CDU has filed a criminal complaint. They think Lilith has hacked their app. This is the state of digitalisation in Germany. 🤦🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️

[Toot!] ok trying out Toot! for iOS. I couldn’t figure out how to see the local timeline. Ended up adding the instance server again and not logging in again. And on that one I see the local. Um. Nobody died.

covid, (-) 

Folks, please be aware that breakthrough infections are a thing with the latest variants.

Some family members have received positive COVID results, even though they were vaccinated.

Normal is not here. Normal is in another castle and the code to get there has been corrupted during replication.

Stay safe out there.

Talk to your children about javascript... before somebody else does.

@tootapp Hi! Do you foresee ongoing updates of the app despite the release of the official client? Looking for a home now that Amaroq is downshifting.

What iOS client are/were people using for Mastodon?
