I just learned about Bagheera kiplingi, a mostly herbivorous spider that is also cute as all heck.

A not very polite post about the modern web #profanity 

oh my fucking gawd , the internet is fucking unusable with your fucking cookie consent shit and fucking "it works better in our app" and your fucking "subscribe to our newsletter" and your fucking "location access" and your fucking notifications.

All this to display some fucking text with a fucking picture.

Go fucking home internet, you are fucking drunk.

Fuck you fucking websites

This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.

My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.

If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️

Anyone tried the , the , or any other foss ? I kinda thought smartwatches were blah but I picked up a couple of PineTimes to play with and the concept has grown on me. Unfortunately, the with is neither very reliable nor very functional yet (at least, neither of mine are though some of the problems could be with GadgetBridge and/or my phone). Obviously, I'd prefer open source hardware, too, but I can compromise on that.

We adopted a new fluffer. He's so huge and adorable and playful. He keeps trying to play with the cats and they are like "efffff no!"

In solidarity with unionizing Amazon employees:

Heads up #Fediverse

@k9mail is looking for funding to maintain their popular #android mail app. #k9mail hopes to raise €1,000 p/w on #liberapay to be able to work fulltime on the project.

Now I can xmpp (+omemo) from the stupid, locked down Win10 PCs at work with ease. My most recent solution was to ssh into one of my servers and use profanity so no one would notice my using my phone too much.

The guidelines on Prosody's site are either outdated or just don't apply to my setup.

Anyway, I fixed up my bosh.conf and now I can suddenly use ojsxc.

It has been literal years that I've wanted this to work. 🤣️

I've been wanting to use ojsxc on my Nextcloud server for a long time but it never seemed to work. I assumed there was something wrong with the app or just some mysterious reason it wasn't compatible with my setup.

Last night I was testing some unrelated stuff and copied the bosh.conf file I created for apache to use as a template since I knew it wouldn't have much extra in it.

I think this is one of the earliest attempts I'd made at an apache conf file. It was so bad.

"I Am Mother" is a pretty good flick with a nice mixture of both expected and unexpected twists. Two gynoid thumbs up.

Tip for autostarting dino, a gtk3 xmpp application:

dino --gapplication-service

Runs it as a background service. You'll still get notifications. You can open and close the window without disconnecting or losing the ability to receive notifications. You can still *completely* exit the application through the application menu. I feel like this should be the default way the application works.

Clearly some sort of dance party resurrection tank cleansing escape pod...

I was browsing houses we can't afford online and I came across this and I'm still not even entirely sure what it is but I definitely know I need it.

Ew. Someone from a really yucky instance followed me and I poked around a bit before being completely certain that the whole domain needed to be blocked. I wish the deplatformed Parler crowd could find some other technology to infest.

in my professional opinion, if you ever feel dead inside you just need to buy a new plant! @plants
