One of my favorite jokes is about a socialist who's just joined a nudist colony. He sits down next to someone and tries to strike up a conversation: "So, have you read Marx?"

"Yes," replies the other nudist irritably, "it's these damn wicker chairs."

Also, if you prefer to still follow twitter users without an account and without using a bot mirror for mastodon, you can use #Fritter, a pretty decent client for Android that doesn't need an account to work, available on f-droid

If you work in product, content or UX design, accessibility is part of your job.

Not someone else’s.

Pass it on.

I've been able to get my hands on the #TruthSocial source code (they do have a link to it on their website, although their website is not accessible to me).

They have disabled federation features. I absolutely expected that, just confirming it for others. It is just another walled garden.

Veloren is a FOSS open world multiplayer RPG, sort of like a cross between Breath Of The Wild and Minecraft. You can follow the official account at:

➡️ @veloren

It's available for Linux, Mac and Windows from the official website at veloren.net

Veloren includes online multiplayer options, and you can host your own server if you want to.

Are there any battery powered WiFi AP portable hard drives with just an HTTP/FTP file server and a lite Linux OS? Or instructions to build one?

Safari on macOS 15 and iOS/iPadOS 15 seems to have a serious security issue:
safarileaks.com/

I would suggest switching to a different browser, but on iOS/iPadOS devices that's impossible, as far as I know -- any browser there is just a skin on Apple's Safari, because Apple bans all other rendering engines:
onezero.medium.com/apple-is-tr

So, instead I can only suggest switching to a different phone. 🤷‍♀️
