As I do not have a Spotify I thought I'd just post a link to my tracks on Bandcamp.
You know all those documentaries you've watched about a dictator's path to power?

That's the bit we're at.
In order to limit the outbreak of new variants, vaccines must be available and affordable worldwide. I hope that the European Commission will act sooner than later. How many more reasons do we need? https://www.politico.eu/article/omicron-outbreak-eu-vaccine-access-southern-africa/
I would really want to have something like Pidgin but for the current generation of IM.
That is, a multi-protocol IM that supports Briar, Signal, Wire, Threema, (and some others I don't care about).
A single client to rule them all.
We used to have it with Pidgin for Jabber, ICQ, etc. Why can't we have nice things now?
Having a rough day?
Here watch our tenrec hedgehog have a sand bath.
Carry on as you were...

its kind of amazing that newspapers ran for two centuries selling their own ads but google waltzed in and convinced them they couldnt do it on their own any more???

Escaping from iOS with /e/: the last(?) update
I was going to write transitional day notes for a week, but it's just not worth it. On the whole, moving from iOS to @e_mydata has been pretty seamless. And the @thepine64 PineWatch has been a revelation.
Whenever I feel guilty about buying another book, I like to remind myself that I just purchased 1-5 years of that person’s life for 26 dollars.
