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 thraeryn.org
If you do, please let me know your user name! I am, as one might expect, firstname.lastname@example.org
thraeryn.net 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.
I'm Thraeryn, the Embodiment of RED and #admin of thraeryn.net.

I've been to too many rainy campouts. Ones where there was minor flooding. Ones where trucks pulled so many vehicles out at event's end. Ones where I huddled in the driest space I could find, praying for an absence of leaks through my 20th wakeful hour.
It's raining, and I'm going to camp. It's raining, and I'm already emotionally drained, and I'm going to camp because my relationship is being held hostage.

how to teach white kids that cops aren't good
i told my kid that a rule can be bad, and that a rule is bad if it causes you to hurt people. the example of a bad rule i gave was it being illegal in some places to give food to houseless people.
i said that being arrested doesn't mean that you've done something bad, and it typically means that you've broken a rule. so i told her that the job of police is to arrest and punish people who have broken a rule, even if the rule is one that hurts people.
I'm not having the easiest day. C can have some real troubles communicating when she gets frustrated, causing build-ups and leading to explosive venting, . . . eventually.
Things go best if I'm calm-ish during those times.
After, I'm left with a C that feels much better and my own emotional stink pile that I have to muck and shovel clear. Some times it's easy; others, it's not.
Having one of the "not" days right now, and I'm unsure what to do about it.
PSA: Today marks the end of support for Windows 7 by Microsoft.
What this means: You can still use W7, but Microsoft will no longer release security patches for it, no matter how serious the problem.
This means that your system is vulnerable to attack, starting today and getting progressively worse as time goes on. What exactly these attacks look like and how bad they'll be we don't know.
Its recommended you not use W7 connected to the internet, and upgrade to 8 or 10 ASAP.
