Pinned post

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 post 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.

Well, the plumbers eventually came by, and they cut & capped the leaking pipe. Gratefully, the leaky pipe was exclusively the cold water feed to the downstairs bathroom basin. Capping it off let us have water everywhere else in the house.

They'll be back Monday to remove the patch and actually fix it, but the patch is far better than having all the water off.

I have a couple of weeks before a couple of birthday parties I plan to attend. (I'm boosted.)

I should sit and actually complete my one fancy mask with the really good fabric.

In Sherlock, when Mycroft, speaking of Eurus, says "She has passed beyond our view,"

I'm always like, "Yes. I want to go to there. I would like to be inscrutable."

hey radical friends. do you have any articles or zines on how to dismantle internalized medical ableism? i’m talking more than neurodiversity, i’m talking mobility and immunity. i don’t have the attention/money budget for a book, so shorter pieces that can give me prompts to go off of are probably best right now.
thanks yall.

Boosts are useful, but when a new account is seven boosts and a single personal toot, it makes me nervous.

I'll check back, but will hesitate to follow until a small body of personal work has established that the new account is more than a fly-by one.

Lurking is fine, but it may not get you very involved in the fediverse community.


I was really enjoying Stargate Atlantis,

and then Jason goddamned Momoa had to show up.

Now I can't decide if it's worth continuing to watch.

I should put on my jumpsuit and crawl slightly beneath the house.

I don't wanna 😅

I feel like I hit a very acceptable level of usefulness today, and I don't want to crawl into a muddy puddle!

I'm really trying to build myself up to it. We'll see if I get there. I'm trying!

i think anytime you memorialize john brown, you should also mention the five black men named shields green, dangerfield newby, john copeland, lewis leary and osborne anderson, who took part in the harpers ferry raid. otherwise all youre doing is erasing them to build up a white savior.

Complete the sentence: "____ in the streets, ____ in the sheets".

Me: "Let's sleep in the streets, bring in the sheets".

I got pharmacy stuff handled.

I got myself a lunch.

I sat outside, relaxing and eating and reading.

I don't feel that ALL is right in my world—there's still a leaky pipe I can try to fix—but I'm about ready to take a walk.

I've been on hold with a pharmacy for about 15, maybe 20 minutes now.

I know how hard they work; I've seen them busy as bees.

I still hate waiting this long to have someone answer the phone. I don't want to be on the dang phone in the first place.

When I was a little kid I would see the Grateful Dead ‘steal your face’ logo and all the cool skeleton album artwork and always thought they must be like hardcore sinister sinister badass heavy metal I wasn’t supposed to listen to. Imagine my surprise and disappointment.

The convenience of paying for my bus ride with my phone is really nice. But you know that would be better?

Free public transit for everyone.

Yay! We cracked $2k!! On lupita's GFM. She's a queer Caribbean writer and escaped an abusive relationship! Were trying to help her rebuild her life, every little bit counts. Pls rb, crosspost and or donate if you can! Thank you to everyone helping


I don't wanna beg anymore, but we're still broke. I don't even know how I'm gonna get my nieces and nephews a basic Christmas. I don't think they're gonna understand "Christmas is a fake Capitalist holiday so I'm not giving you anything" to be honest. I really do want to get them something.

My name change is pending at Social Security (doing it by mail, the only way right now), which means applying for work is difficult right now (things might not line up when they check my SSN). All we have is someone here working a crap hardware store job.

Any little bit will help. I really am doing the best I can. I'm just stuck.
