An instance that encourages similarly minded instances to spring up around it as a hub by offering a subdomain to anyone who wants to set up a federated instance.

(This is not what I registered a domain for a minute ago)

This is a video of Russian media and pop culture in response to Donald Trump getting elected. Omg it's so bizarre and terrible and weird fieldofvision.org/our-new-pres

But does Pass give me Bash completion on the password?

🚨🚨🚨 Really major Gmail phishing attack going around right now. Do NOT click on an unexpected "Open in Docs" link.

Whether or not you have, now is a great time to review the apps you've authed to your account: security.google.com/settings/s

Does anyone use 2FA with Gmail *and* get their mail through Evolution?
