Welcome to Midsize American City, we got:
- Business district w/ tall buildings (newest built 1985, no residential)
- Cool Warehouse District (oh fuck we tore down all the good buildings everywhere else)
- Expressway moat around the above
- Strip Mall Sprawl beyond

For 3 days now, both the far right and Gender Critical "feminists" have been tweeting at me about the supposed dangers of trans women. I can't tell who is who anymore. These are not distinct movements anymore.

I'm trying a VOIP service to potentially save some money on my phone bill, and it's... ALMOST what I need. Like it is so close but there are just 1 or 2 issues holding me back from porting my number to it.

I am honored to be chosen by the Nordic ministers of culture to be one of thirteen experts in a new Nordic think tank. The think tank will take a closer look at the tech giants’ influence on democracy in the Nordic Region and come up with proposals for solutions.

The think tank will carry out the work over the course of the next 12 months, and will result in a presentation of its recommendations in the first half of 2023. 

So all thoughts and comments are welcome!

“I came out as gay in 2014, and it’s different. Transphobia is just so, so, so extreme. The hatred and the cruelty is so much more incessant.” – Elliot Page

So, #introduction :

I'm the primary admin (there are/will be others) of a new instance, thebigeasy.space, that is primarily meant for New Orleans Birdsite refugees. I'm a long time software engineer and Mastodon/#fediverse fan. Definitely #antiracist , #lgbtfriendly , #antiTERF , #antimisogyny. Significant Ashkenazi ancestry, so mouthy (but respectful) Jew alert.

Feel free to follow for tech talk, social critique, New Orleans issues, etc.

I came, I saw, I tooted.

OK, so I know I have to be dense here, but where do I see where I can add servers to the block list in the admin section? Can't find it anywhere. BTW, if I have to do this via REST interfaces, that's cool, I'm a developer, totally comfy with that.

"This is probably one of the rarest and unusual transient luminous event captures I have managed. The corkscrew-looking features are secondary jets that reach from close to the cloud tops up to a preceding sprite location."

One minor masto client gripe: EVERY masto client should have "translate toot" built in. Yeah, they're big corporate, but Google has a free translation API. Scared of Google seeing what you are translating? Don't use it. Or maybe the fediverse needs its own translation service.

I can't believe I am rewatching the series "The Americans". But it's damn good.

Hey, is it just me or does anyone else watch TV shows from before say 2017 or so and go, "My GOD, this is wall to wall straight white people???".

More instances to block 

detroitriotcity.com - more anime incels spouting racist crap
freeatlantis.com - wall to wall right wing garbage and Trump supremacy
bae.st - ditto on the anime incels, nazism, seeing how close they can get to open pedophile material

ALgORhythm boosted

So, just a reminder:

Racist edgelords, crybaby straight(ish) white incels, any combination of the preceding with those who love posting tons of manga/hentai un-content warned, homophobes, you are not welcome federated to thebigeasy.space.

Are. Not.

This instance is for residents of New Orleans, people with a strong interest in the culture of New Orleans/South Louisiana, etc, and it's a black/biracial culture. Your garbage is unwelcome here.

Here ended the lesson.
