He followed me. He wants to be my friend. My dad said the feral chickens are pests but shut up I love them

So…where is Black Mastodon? Black Twitter is one of the liveliest things about the bird site, but I'm not seeing it here.

Q: How do I explain Bitcoin to my grandfather?
A: imagine if keeping your car idling 24/7 produced solved Sudokus you could trade for heroin

Season 2 of is on , and it's just as good as the first season!

There’s a new batch of ducklings at work!

Six adorable fluffy Australian Wood Duck ducklings less than a week old.

Not sure what to make of #Quad9 (IBM'S new DNS service).

The privacy policy seems better than Google/OpenDNS. No storage/transfer of IP data and they even disable EDNS0 (on their main IP).

There is no support for DNSCrypt or DNSCurve, but they do support DNS-over-TLS. Which makes some sense, considering they are targeting IOT devices that are unlikely to support DNSCrypt or have the HW to do so.

Free DNS with active threat blocking could be big security win for everyone.

I think the thing I miss most from birdsite is black birdsite. Who should I be following here?

Politics - It's in my bio you read when you followed. 

The Trump administration is pushing to defund the National Parks Service. The budget for this department is already laughably underfunded. Meanwhile, the administration spent over $85 million on an attack on Syria. The end result?

The targeted airfield is still operational, Assad is still in power, and the Park Service could have been funded for 3 months for what it cost to put on a fireworks show that didn't change the game at all.

Proposal: USians stop using “PST” and “EST” and start saying “UTC-8” and “UTC-5” so I can work out what actual damn time you mean in my head.

Alternately, list local and UTC?

Also it’d be great if you didn’t use “summer” and “winter” as an approximate date. Sincerely, the other hemisphere.
