Hi Mastodon (what's the Mastodon equivalent of Tweeps? Meeps?), time to introduce myself:
I'm Miri, my pronouns are she/her, level 30 and I live in NRW, Germany. I'm in training to become a nurse.
In private I like to listening to music and/or playing games (still trying to figure out Twitch).
I'm speaking English (pronounciation could be better, lack of training) and German. Also, currently I'm learning DGS (German Sign Language).
Chelsea Manning is still in jail...she has spent the bulk of 2019 in jail, with no due process, bail or charge...she simply refuses to testify to a grand jury that already has access to the testimony from her court martial.
This is pure retribution, hatred and bigotry of trans people by the criminal and corrupt Trump administration and extremist conservatives that support him.
"GitLab, a San Francisco-based provider of hosted git software, recently changed its company handbook to declare it won't ban potential customers on "moral/value grounds," and that employees should not discuss politics at work."
the American Mathematical Society just published a free ebook called Living Proof, a collection of mathematicians recounting their often turbulent paths to where they are now. i've read a few of the stories and i think this is an amazing read, not just for scholars of math, but for anyone who is doing something where they simply don't feel "smart enough" to succeed. success is often made up of struggle and failure; this can be difficult to remember in our current times.
cybre.space is having service problems right now "thanks" to our hosting provider, but i want to reassure everyone here that we have no intention of taking the instance down entirely, and we have appropriate backups just in case the worst happens (which have been tested to be restorable). cybre.space isn't going anywhere.
cybre outages, meta, reminder
Reminder to all cybre netizens that if you haven't exported your following and block lists perhaps this would be a good time to do it.
That way, just in case something worse happens, you could rebuild your network in another instance.
(Don't back up all your toots yet, you would slow down the server even more, and besides, there's no way to import back those toots)
