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.

Hi! I'm @thraeryn, the admin of thraeryn.net. I hope you'll be able to have real conversations and form real friendships with other Mastodon users here, both locally and in the wider fediverse.
If you see something, say something. Each and every toot has a "Report" feature. I hope users will be able to toot harassment-free, so I'll be watching.
hey fedizens (and especially niusers)! i built something!
it's a tool that can open a mastodon export archive and show you all of your toots and favorites (if they're available). it's still not perfect and needs substantial improvements, but i decided to publish it now, as niusers were asking questions about how to view export.
also i'll post updates at @meowViewer (report bugs there if you encounter them!). please boost!
As ever the most important thing to focus on in transition is being happy in your self, in your body, in your skin. You started transitioning for your own happiness, and that should always be a through-line. You're not hurting the community by transitioning your body to where you need it to be. Be truthful and honest about what you want with yourself. When you reach that goal, you will be a hundred times stronger to help others in the community reach theirs.
Here's a simple tutorial on darning socks!
My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.
Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.
Feel free to boost. #trans
I finally sat down to start re-making my Meal Lists.
I highly recommend this for kitchen-table #polyamory and anyone who was a lot of guests over regularly.
First, I make a list of all the foods each person won't/can't eat, with a heavy emphasis on medical and religious restrictions.
Second, I make a list of some of the foods each person prefers.
Third, I come up with three meals that 1) I will usually have the supplies for, 2) everyone can eat, 3) aren't spoon heavy.
basically, don't use the fediverse for anything you wouldn't want coming up in a court of law, because it's not secure for that. It's just not a tool that's built for secure political organizing. There's ongoing discussion about potentially making it secure, but that doesn't have an easy solution for a bunch of technical reasons, so for now it's just not. Use Signal or another encrypted, secure chat app. Don't harbor any illusions that you can discuss anything seditious on here safely.
but at the same time, fuck cops, we should 100% be banning them from being on the fediverse, not because it will make our information more secure, but because fuck them, we don't want them around here. It's not a matter of infosec, but a matter of not wanting to associate with the bastards. Come back with a warrant or not at all, asshole.
hello fediverse! here's a list of things i know how to do, and that i want to do for people on here:
✅ installing (or teaching how to install) OSs on computers and phones
✅ custom mastodon themes
✅ digital art (esp portraits) and photography
✅ tarot readings
✅ basic cybersecurity assesments and tutorials
if you can afford to compensate me for my work with €€€, that'd be most welcome, but mostly i want to offer services to people who need it.
Children are people too
They need things & in a timely fashion. These things should be provided without making them feel guilty for needing them.
Give them a proper winter coat. Remind them it's to keep them safe & warm, so they should take good care of it.
Don't whine to them about how much it cost you. Don't threaten them with stuff if they lose it.
Don't wait until the last minute to but them what you know they will need. Consistently making them a low-level priority is gonna hurt, too.
So I work at a hotel that serves free breakfast and dinners (for guests*), though the dinners are only mon-thu.
If you're ever looking for a free meal, I'd recommend checking out if there are hotels near you that do the same. I'm going to reply with a few tips to keep in mind in case you're nervous/unsure how to pass as a guest.
1. Dressing how you would if you just woke up is fine. 100% normal. Some people get ready before breakfast, but tons don't.
