Pinned toot

I have an XMPP/Jabber server. It features OMEMO encryption. I run it from a closet in my house. It is up if my house has power and internet (so, most of the time.) It allows uploads of pics and video for sharing. Those files are deleted after 24 hours.

You can join it by using "Conversations" on Android, or "Siskin IM" on iOS, to create a new account at

If you do, please let me know your user name! I am, as one might expect,

Pinned toot will never support hate speech. We will always come down hard on users who promote inequality, and de-federate with instances who are unwilling to say (and do) the same.

If you see one of our users violating these terms, file a report. Send me a message. (I'm on the lookout, of course, and.) The response will be as swift as I can make it.

This is the how-to I wish I had when I set up my Prosody XMPP server. I have no idea why in tarnation no search engine would show it to me.

About to watch "The Trial of the Chicago 7".

I found my dad's copy of "Steal This Book" when I was 14 or 15. I loved it. I wanted to do almost everything suggested and turn things upside down.

Looking forward to seeing Abbie Hoffman represented.

the most horrible drinking game, uspol 

Short version: you and those around you chug Carlo Rossi wine until his pictured head is above the level of the wine.

I hope I don't feel a need to save Carlo Rossi on election night.

✅ clean ceiling fan blades
✅ set fans to winter direction
✅ vacuum under cleaned fans
✅ tell partner

"Ava" film 

Buddy. Two things:

✅ I don't understand why people can't leave family that hurt them behind, or at least only give the barest of shits.

✅ This entire movie is why orphans make the best secret agents.


Possibly my favorite Monty Python joke:

"It is NOT A BALLOON! It is a ZEPPELIN! Step outside and have a look!!"

Except the black woman asked to babysit, who is not having any ridiculousness

I love her to death, and I wish her every positive thing she could ever want

Everyone who says it wouldn't work without the actress who plays Tutar is correct. She's somehow a joy to watch as Cohen and pmuch every other male onscreen denigrates her character.

How the fuck is that even possible?

Also, *fucking depression sigh about every American shown*

I am still looking for Senior GRC Candidates for immediately open positions in my company.

If you do GRC, and you are looking for a change of scenery, or full-time WFH, please let me know, I find it to be incredibly rewarding to help people find work.

HMU, and I'll share the details.


23 on the treadmill today. Yesterday was 20. Body seems happy to go a little farther each morning.


Did something that REALLY spiked my heart rate last night, far more than I wish it had. Not getting that damn blown up in the future is a solid incentive. (I was BLOWN UP, buddies)

Last night's AEW Dynamite was an amazing show for many reasons,

including THIS MAN, who once performed in *North Carolina*! 🤣

(eye contact)

Candy corn.

Sugar and edible wax.

Why, that sounds very much like a honeycomb, hm?



In conclusion,

✅ My dad was a really lazy cook
✅ I didn't eat much really GOOD food until maybe my second live-in relationship
✅ Thank fuck for real chefs on the 'net making fine recipes as accessible as they do

Still amazing. Finished that plate, had to get a second.

It's everything my dad ever wanted a slow cooker stew to be, that such a thing never could be bc
✅ lack of pre-cook browning
✅ stew instead of braising
✅ friggin' slow cooker
✅ trying to keep the veggies from the mirepoix around like they're worth anything
✅ potatoes 🙄 (I made mashed as a side rather than try to shove 'em in this)
