Um...

Also, we would prefer not to be served by someone who is on or uses recreational drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, meth, fentanyl, etc, so if you could provide us with Brad's most recent tox screen, that would be great.

Um... Let me get the manager for you.

That would be great, thanks.

In case this might come in handy. 😂

Hello.

Hi, table for two, please.

Sure, and your name.

Meg.

Great. And do you and your guest have your vaccination cards?

We do. Can you tell us who our server will be?

Um, looks like Brad will be your server tonight.

Great. Can you show us Brad's vaccination card? As well as the kitchen staff?

Um.

And also, can you provide me with proof that Brad/kitchen staff is not a carrier of HIV, Hepatitis A or B, or any other communicable diseases?

Every election isn’t about Trump. You can like the job he did. You can even want him to run again. But he’s just one man. He’s become the sun for most people. Left and Right. They can’t get out a sentence without talking about him.

The Right has to be about more than just Trump

>Absolutely!

To carry a smartphone from big tech is now to carry a passive surveillance device on your person. You are paying a thousand dollars to have your privacy violated. its why you should choose a device from @purism as you dont have to trust purism at all you can trust the code as it should be (i do trust purism by the way but just saying). so stay away from all things google and the all seeing i. edwardsnowden.substack.com/p/a

Pick a random consumer device lying around your house and imagine someone coming across it after 70 years of neglect. Part of the device no longer works. Would they be able to fix it? puri.sm/posts/beyond-right-to-

I don’t know who needs to hear this but there wouldn’t be a cargo ship backup if we made in America and didn’t ship everything in from China

Insightful. We can't repeat often enough that @mobian , @debian , @postmarketOS , @manjarolinux and others would not be where they are now, without @purism adopting a cooperative upstreaming policy. We would wager that everyone purchasing a (true) Linux device now, benefits from your investments. There is plenty to criticize and nag about you 😝, but you are doing the whole FOSS community a service that could not easily be replicated by volunteers.

If you want to preview how a post looks on Mastodon without anyone else seeing it, select a visibility of "Direct" and toot it. As long as you haven't @-ed anyone, only you will be able to see this post.

It will be a DM to yourself, which means it shows you exactly what the published post looks like, but keeps it hidden.

When you're happy to let others see it, use the "Delete & re-draft" option (in the post's "..." menu) to change the visibility to a more public setting. Then just toot it again, and it will be visible.

(If you want to make multiple changes, just keep DMing the post to yourself and redrafting until you're happy. When you're happy, redraft one more time and change the visibility to a non-direct setting.)

Anyone a CSS/Javascript expert able to do simple things fast w/only #FOSS? We need to spruce up our site quickly. We've got the Django parts but need someone w/great CSS/Javascript skills to work with us on it. Ideally, you'd have 2 days of contractor time over the next week...

Get off Facebook. Get off every Facebook service. Block Facebook. Don't work for Facebook. Don't provide services to Facebook. Find every way you can to get them out of your life and support others in doing the same.

They are ethically indefensible.

Dad jokes aren't terrible, otherwise we'd just call them bad jokes.
:ablobcatcoffee:

The security industry has largely failed to build security measures without reducing a user's freedom more than attackers. It's not only harder to build security solutions that give users control, it reduces dependence on the vendor. This is why vendors just build jails.

I don't dispute that jails are hard to break into, but they are even harder to break out of. How many of us would choose to live in a prison in real life? Instead we make risk assessments that balance personal freedom and security, and the digital world should be no different.

On this day in 1776, the British hanged Nathan Hale. His last words were NOT, "I would speak out, but it would cause me personal and professional harm."

#Pinephone #Mobian #MMS via #Matrix (mini) #Howto:
1. Sign up for two matrix accounts
2. Remove chatty, install kop316/mmsd and untidylamp/mmmpuppet
3. Configure mmsd for your carrier and mmmpuppet for your matrix accounts
4. Set up services to start them on boot
5. Do the mms thing with a matrix client like fractal on the phone or element on the web.

It is also possible to run the matrix server locally on the pinephone if you install it from pip.

I'm looking for a privacy respecting GPS bike computer. I'm not interested in pairing to an Android/iPhone smartphone, I'm trying to get rid of mine! I don't want to have to register to an online account or install a program on Windows or macOS, as I run Linux at home. I want to be able to upload map updates (OSM preferred) and download gpx traces from a regular file browser through USB... Cadence monitor compatible a +.

Mission impossible?

Thx!

Rand Paul on further lockdowns and mandates:

"Resist. 

They can’t arrest us all. They can’t keep all your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed – although I’ve got a long list of ones they should.....

We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and feckless bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again.
