Do you like and ? Are you in open revolt against the devilish mainstream internet, renouncing Web 2.0 and all its works?

If you use terminal colours via internet, please hit me up, here or on the textnet. I’m trying to make a central depot for gopher and Gemini colour sites, especially any artists doing ASCII/UTF8/BIG5 &c.


What can I say; I’m a bbs kid. I like CLI text. I like pretty primary colours.

Amazing input method for Nankingese Mandarin by pinyin. The Rime IME is a great platform for making keyboards using yaml config files, in just about any OS!

I discovered a few weeks late, natch, that SKS keyservers are now deprecated thanks to poor security. The weevils finally gnawed through. Public keys themselves still work, apparently uncompromised per se. But an attack using many multiple signatures can crash GPG. For this and many other reasons, it’s best to use the next generation keyserver being built at:

An educated and irate discussion about the insecurity of SKS:

What is the web-condom for reddit, like nitter or invidious?

I won a major award on @tbn97 Bronzie Beat show, haha. I never won such a music trivia compo before!

@Shufei Earlier in the year I was biking around my city and ran into a randomly heavy police and homeland security presence loitering downtown. Shortly after that I pass a small anti-police protest by the local DSA, being sandwiched by the above.

I found out this protest was apparently a) unregistered with the city (to make it a "surprise action")... and b) planned entirely on facebook. I discovered those facts because I googled some of the details (date, city, "anti-police protest") and got a link to their fb group page as a top result.

The reason I use the GPL for software that I personally write is because I want you and everyone else using the software to be able to use the GPL and contribute back.

I love the public domain, but you know who else loved the public domain?

Walt Disney.

He plundered the public domain so hard that the culture almost snapped in half.

Had the Brothers Grimm had a CC-BY-SA license (and used it in perpetuity) you'd be able to make a fairy-tale cartoon without some Disney lawyer getting itchy.

if i say someone is "vichy" do you know what i mean?

I’m constantly flabbergasted by some of my more “radical” friends’ utter complacency regarding basic infosec and attendant digital surveillance regimes. If you are planning actions on Twitbookoogle... you should expect your nascent movement will soon smell rather Vichy.

Why still use Microsoft Github? How is this hard to bally well change? Gitea that shizzle in a semi-free country.

Also, dash RIAA and corporate American dystopia to hades in a hand basket.

Come for the platform runners, Adidas club-wear and out-sized neon pacifiers, stay for the warm & fuzzy chat puddle of the com and IRC chat.

Colonialism systematically attacks everything that is individual about a people, and Language is one of the more tangible losses. We're still battling for our own language in Ireland, but North American people are struggling even harder.
If you're looking for a language challenge, Duolingo has Navajo:
And this Irish user collected some resources on Choctaw:
Even collecting these resources for others is virtuous. :)

As far as I can figure offhand... About 70% of my expenses go to supporting corporate parasites’ profiteering. And I’m exceedingly frugal as a rule. I side eye the commies and punks for reasons, but they really are the only ones who give half a damn about the quotidian struggle of peasants.

We're about to have a constitutional crisis the likes of which we've never seem before. I'll be surprised if 45 isn't somehow incapacitated in November, or worse.

and that's just for starters.
