A gentle reminder about posting images:
Your fellow mastonauts vary in visual ability, and many rely on screenreaders. Please consider using the captioning function on your images.
Once you've uploaded an image, there's a text bar along the bottom of the thumbnail. Type a brief description in there (or a long one if necessary), so everyone can share. This doesn't count against your character limit.

But seriously I do want help developing a new browser engine! I've got enough on my plate, but as a browser developer I feel a certain responsibility.

"Wayfair sold beds to furnish border camps; 547 employees signed a petition to ask that we cease all business with border camps; CEO said no —>employees are walking out tmrw at 1:30pm. We ask that Wayfair donate all profits made from the sale to RAICES"
I didn't get paid when I expected to this week, and I could use some help getting to the end of the month. If you have a couple dollars you can throw my way, I'd really appreciate it. #transcrowdfund

Gab Show more
