TorrentFreak Is Blocked as a Pirate Site and Hacking Resource

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's
Mastodon is great for defeating #censorship . Right Now I'm in a hotel room in mainland #China. Connected to the hotel wifi, and without any VPN, I'm still connected to the world. OTOH, Twitter / Facebook / Google are all blocked by the infamous great #firewall of China.
Video games, pretentious reading habits
When I ever I read Russian novels I can't help but picture them living in the post-apocalyptic ruins of the Moscow subway. #VideoGamesRuinEverything
Mastodon is not the first online ecosystem for any of us, it’s a chance at a reboot.
So it’s pretty rad that our consensus answer to the question “If given a chance, what would I have done differently online to make for a better future?” is a resounding “be authentic and kind and seek connection with others.”
Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!
Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.
Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.
Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.
Nothing like reinstalling software just to get the uninstaller, because the stupid A/V you were testing quarantined and deleted them. #CriticsLife

🔴 Amis du Fediverse, je vous rappelle que sur Mastodon, il est nullement besoin d’utiliser la technique de réduction d’URL, car n’importe quelle URL postée est égale à 23 caractères.
t.co/Blabla → 23 caractères
https://uneadressebienlonguesortiedenullepart.unsuperdomaineàlacon.qqch → 23 caractères aussi
En plus spa top pour la vie privée (cf. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A9duction_d%27URL#Critiques)
Le bisou 😙
Ceci était un message de l’amical de l’URL la Vraie !
