I'm currently considering the minimalist Freeform Universal RPG http://freeformuniversal.com/, since that is what my friend who inspired this idea is using.
Quick, go to Clark Park, there's a #rainbow!
If you have to choose one, which is better for the #environment: buying #organic, or buying #ZeroWaste (using reusable containers)? For some reason, many nuts etc. are frequently not available in organic forms in bulk bins, only in conventional forms.
Another impossible consumer choice that we could deal better with at a societal level.
If anyone has suggestions (besides Spotify) for sharing playlists containing songs I don't own, I'm all ears!
Are there any good #Mastodon #servers for my non-technical #parents who barely understand computers + the internet and will probably struggle to understand the fediverse? Something heavily moderated, ideally with some hand-holding for old people?
I mean, I could try to run a Mastodon server just for my family, but I'd rather not if I can avoid it.
an appeal to the fediverse regarding anti-abuse
Fascism joining the fediverse is extremely bad, and we have to do something about it. But please, please, please: give me two weeks before you roll out any new solutions. Some of the solutions being proposed look like they will make the situation better but will make it much worse.
I am dropping nearly everything to write a demo and spec explaining how to do things right. Please give me two weeks. I've been preparing for this.
Fountain pens may not be ideal for writing checks. I find that I don't press hard enough with my fountain pen to leave a mark on the carbon paper in my checkbook.
Checks are a significant percentage of my handwriting at the moment, so that's rather disappointing! Guess I'll just have to find more excuses to handwrite stuff.
jawns.club #meta, gab
Domain-blocked a few Gab servers. Please send reports on any you notice in the federated timeline. Hopefully a technical solution will appear but in the meantime, any help you can provide in this game of whack-a-mole would be appreciated.
First, power went out on my street because a telephone pole caught on fire. Firefighters stood around for a while staring at the flaming pole, just like everyone else on the block. Eventually the fire went out, although I didn't see whether the firefighters had anything to do with that.
Then just as the power was restored, a tornado warning started blaring out from my phone, and the sky opened up.
Just another day in Philly.
When Google suggests news stories on my phone, it constantly recommends horrifying sites.
You like politics? Surely you read Breitbart, RT, and Fox News. You're interested in climate change? Surely you want transparent climate change denialism. You've been reading about Mastodon? Surely you need articles that promote white supremacy and misspell "Mastadon."
If this is what I see, what is recommended to actual Republicans? Algorithms are pushing systematic hate and lies.
