@Cobalt @benhamill @maloki I was wrong: the canary wasn’t updated because it was very broad: https://github.com/riseupnet/riseup_help/issues/404
(And I was the one who commented, even. Mind like a sieve.)
@Cobalt @benhamill @maloki I’ve had an account there for a few years but haven’t ever really used it (I was going to do investigative journalism for like 14 minutes). They seem to have a lot of nice services, including VPN, so if you’d like an invite I can send one. (You need two for an account)
They did fail the canary test a bit ago: a message saying “we have never been compromised by government agencies and will update again on MM/DD” wasn’t updated. They claimed it was an oversight.
capitalism, libraries Show more
If you haven't worked it out, the reason people keep trying to reinvent the library is because they don't want to pay full price for books but don't want poor people to be able to use the service.
This is why the running joke is techbros trying to reinvent the city bus, too. There's no money in supporting the poor, and "if the poor REALLY wanted to they could NOT be poor", so fuck us, right?
I have a @writefreely instance set up now! And I spent the first post talking about Pokemon Go IV floors: https://blog.theconley.club/dan/iv-floors-in-pokemon-go

@benhamill I'm about as not from Texas as you can be and still live in the US (east coast liberal woooo) and even I get that "howdy" means "hi" and not "how is it going". What a weird thing to do.
"Howdy good" sounds like a line of local chips or something though.
@AzureHusky Disney: "no but like
if you paused Frozen at just the right time
you would see a dude! who was waving to a dude!
(because, you see, the dudes KISS. but not in the movie. offscreen, probably.)
we're so inclusive."
FINALLY I get to announce some very exciting news!
"Ghosts", the story upthread of this toot, is being published! It will be (in a slightly edited, improved form with better intro and a few lines that read poorly changed) one of the stories featured this year in Transcendent 4: The Year's Best Transgender Speculative Fiction, Edited by Bogi Takács and published by Lethe Press! Info and preorders can be found here!! https://www.lethepressbooks.com/store/p568/Transcendent_4.html#/
