Pinned toot

Note to anyone who would like to block :

Please discuss the issue with me first so that we can discuss the problem. I would not want all of the members here to be unable to participate with your instance simply because of a minor disagreement or because of just one or two of our users.

I figured I should write a pinned post so that when people find me from another instance they actually see something on my profile (psst. find more at

I am a follower of . My whole life should be wrapped around what pleases Him, not anyone else.

I am also a programmer. Not as a job, of course, but I work on projects as hobbies.

I also advocate , and / (as of writing this post I am using ).


I'm collaborating with @adama to try to start a computer consultancy/tech support service.

You can pay us to:
- Fix your computer and improve performance/security
- Build a website (frontend + backend)
- Write any kind of software (low-level or high-level)
- Help you with Linux server administration (security, DevOps, performance etc.)

We'll work for free if you're a nonprofit or activist etc.

Fill in the contact form on our website if you're interested.

Just a quick reminder that Free and Open Source Software isn't a competition among ourselves.

We're fighting against those who would co-opt general purpose computing.

It doesn't matter if you're on the BSD side or the Linux side, or if you believe that KDE is great or that GNOME is amazing (or prefer a tiling window manager). We're all on the same side.

We're at our best when we link our arms together and say in a clear voice, you'll have to pass through all of us to overcome all of us.

Did Google Groups suddenly move to requiring a Google login to read mailing list histories? wtf wtf wtf

"Chrome for Android may soon send notifications reminding you to use Chrome"

When the 71% total browser market share is not enough and you have to resort to spam and tricks to squeeze a couple percent more...

We are starting to use C more for our Bible software. See our progress here:

Did you know you can export your Mastodon Follows and other things as simple text files? That way if your instance dies, you can simply join another one and import those backups.
It's in your Preferences under 'Import and export'.
I thought I'd mention it, since I often forget to do it for too long.

#Opensource is a development methodology; free software is a social movement. For the Open Source movement, non-free software is a suboptimal solution. For the #FreeSoftware movement, non-free software is a social problem and Free Software  is the solution

Is there such a thing as "Login with Mastodon"? It would be pretty easy to make I think. is a great git-hosting website. Thanks so much for hosting it @codeberg!

Anybody use ? I want to search for a phrase, and all the help I find is way over my head, technical. Putting it in quotation marks (e.g., "Dt 20") doesn't work. What's the secret? Why so complicated?

It must be demanded that all teleconferencing/remote working platforms must be free and open source. Ppl should be able to inspect these software and know what they actually do. No public institution should open gates to proprietary platforms that are often used for surveillance.

Good quote: "I need privacy, not because my actions are questionable, but because your judgement and intentions are."

I'd love to form more of a community with other designers, especially those focused on #UX and who share #Libre slash #OpenSource values.

If you do too, respond to this thread and we can see where it goes from there.

(boost appreciated!)

First step in downscaling my online identity: consolidating my online accounts.

COVID-19, comparison of symptoms to the cold, the flu, and allergies 

Have you discussed with your children, who may be e-learning for the first time, ways to protect their online privacy?

Are you talking with them about password management and best practices?

Do you help them disable location services and unneeded microphone or camera access?

Are they being mindful of videos they post in group chats or apps?

I run a instance on a server accessible at I would like to have a normal gitweb instance accessible at, any pointers on how to do this? (I already got the domain and routing stuff figured out, I just need to figure out how to set up gitweb)
