Don't just scroll on by...

Read about these shitsacks first.

These people would see me and my friends dead.

For those of you still following us, we would like to express our solidarity with #dropkiwifarms.

In 2019 they disrupted the #glimpse Matrix channel, then they targeted individual contributors, some of whom are still hiding and/or have threads on them today.

Outside of our own project, Kiwi Farms has driven their political enemies from their homes, off the Internet, and in some cases to suicide. We will all be safer when that website is finally gone.

Just had a look at and they don't even use Gitea! They use GitHub!! The screenshot on their homepage looks like GitHub with the icon switched. What's the point?

The cost of cars is very high and our governments pump billions of dollars making people buy and maintain these expensive machines.

Plese boost for reach: Why have a single person, or even a team, working on accessibility? In an organization, in a company, in a dev team, in any collective that works on software, media, books, art... Everyone should be focused on accessibility in anything they create for others. If you are, then everyone else has a better time! Maybe someone wants to read a picture, or hear a book, or relax their eyes while doing computer work. It helps *everyone* when everyone is included. #a11y

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

@dean Wow. Yeah the Github issues should speak louder than the accessibility statement.

Last Wednesday, tracked an *all time high* of 232,483 flights.

As if there was no climate crisis. 🌍🔥✈️


Our regular mid-week look at global air traffic. Currently 18,600 flights in the air.

Last Wednesday we tracked an all time high 232,483 flights. It is likely today’s traffic will top that. Follow flights live at


The word 'homeowner' has the word 'meow' in it.
Good luck pronouncing it correctly ever again.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

I found a new game. Three tries to locate the daily satellite view on an OpenStreetMap based map.
🗺️ Daily Challenge 5.6.2022
TOTAL POINTS 91/100 (944,63km off, 0m search radius)
I also enjoy planing worldle and contributing to OSM, so it's up my alley.

I like how the election ended up being about climate change but I wonder how the government could withstand the force from the fossil fuel giants and News Corp?

Imagine #libraries don't exist, but there's this person who thought of them and is trying to convince everyone else about them.

-Borrow books for free? People are going to steal them!
-You can just come in to use a computer? Well that's just going to be abused by freeloaders.
-Staff? Who is going to pay them? Why should my taxes be wasted subsidising access to books for people who haven't saved and bought their own?

How many amazing things do we dismiss? What is our society missing out on?
