"So for the #Tusky case, the misunderstanding of mass censorship and ignorance of developer liberties in context of FLOSS make cries of “censorship” and “violates free speech” a strong signal for lack of sincere thought."

I ride my kids to daycare/preschool in a bakfiets every morning and get so many compliments (or at least comments) from teachers and parents. How do I get _them_ to ride?

Over the past 6 months or so, a few members have asked us if we accept donations via #Liberapay.

We moved away from them because they were having issues; it looks like those issues are now fixed (we hope). So we’re happy to announce that Fosstodon is now accepting Liberapay donations again. 😁

Error pages should list alternative account(s) of admins

Currently the error page is just the sad elephant gif, right? But when the site is down and all the pages are sad elephant gifs, there is no way to look at /about to get alternative contact details for admins.

The sad elephant page should say "Here are the alternative accounts for admins, so you can see whether they know about the downtime and check for instance status updates."

Ha, I looked in the user crontab, not root crontab. It must have been the script error for two weeks.

Oh, hello empty crontab. Huh.

I was also hitting an error in my script, should get on fixing that.

Sorry, not sure what's up with @hackgfk_311. I moved some things around over the last few weeks which might explain.

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
