If you see benches designed so one can't lie on it, you know something is very wrong in that place.

There are more empty houses then #homeless people, and yet more effort is being done to 'protect' with force that those houses stay unused.

And that not enough, authorities spening energy to make it impossible for someone being homeless to lie down on a bench.
Caring more to upgrade the price of their houses, then to focus on what houses should be for.

A home for someone to live.

Yes, it is exactly what you can guess from the domain name.

also lol@ all the people who are again writing stuff like "let's see if this takes off, let's see if it becomes popular". We sustained the fediverse with like 100 actual users for years, it's gigantic right now.

Netflix is everything wrong with America. They're trying to compete with sleep.

It gets on my nerves that people use WhatsApp or Signal or Threema or Telegram or whatever hip new thing they came up with for instant messaging because "it is too hard/weird to create an XMPP account".

XMPP is a protocol for federated instant messaging in case you never heard of it.

If we are already getting people to use Mastodon instead of birdsite, how about we made it really easy for instance owners to also run an XMPP server using the same credentials as Mastodon for user authentication?

Just because we can't imagine a better way to live and work with our fellow human beings doesn't mean there *isn't* one.

Every now and then I see the argument that people shut down their XMPP server because they communicate only with a handful of people over it.

This has been the main reason to keep my XMPP server as it is a great way to hook up all kinds of people to chat with me in real time through one of the most secure e2e encryption schemes we have available today.

2-3 people's chat less on the record is still a win imho.

Thirty days has November. April, June, and September. Of twenty eight is but one. And all the rest are thirty one. Of course leap year comes and slays. Every four years got it right, and twenty eight is twenty nine.
