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.

A couple of folks I know are acting like they don't get the show.

I have no idea whether they're missing that there's a larger narrative, or are unwilling to give that bigger story a chance if it happens inside a "Bewitched" pastiche.


I don't even eat sugar that often, but I just love everything about sugar glass. Love the optics of eating it, love offering it to my friends, love that (with a desiccant pouch in the bag) it keeps almost forever.

I REALLY should've put some citric acid in this last batch, because I have some; I just didn't think of it. Would've been even tastier.

Actually, I should write it in my recipe book.

(I muted my mic while eating because the sound of crunching sugar glass is kind of a lot)

I was appropriately red, and I did eat a shard of sugar glass on cam while I was there, so maybe I made some sort of impression

I was just on a Zoom call for my friend's birthday.

Oof. Only knew my friend, everyone was talking over each other, etc.

I did stay longer than I expected? And I don't believe anyone noticed I left, so 🤷🏼‍♂️

Y'all should watch this again, I'm a sucker for odd couple tag teams that work better than they have any right to.

CW for like, goofy wrestle violence, moment that looks like it's gonna be transphobic/queerphobic but isn't (I don't think they meant it to come across that way)

1) Linux Mint has a new packaged app that plays IPTV channels.
2) One of the providers has an AFV channel.
3) It's like YouTube is playing every fail video at us, forever and ever.
4) I think this is how the world ends.

That was good wrestling.

I had Kangaroo here, I had someone watching on stream, and we all enjoyed some top-tier athleticism & storytelling.

I'll be around for more next Wednesday.

I'm ecstatic that my cutie sweetheart, Abadon, will get a shot at the AEW Women's Championship.

Just look at that adorable woman! ❤️

I'm still streaming wrestling tonight.

I don't want to develop an ulcer watching the fucking nation break down. I'm going to be kind to myself and watch something that will make me happy.

I start in about 20 minutes.

Hey, buddies. I'm gonna watch some wrestling tonight. I'll stream it, too, so you can watch with me.

Show starts at 7 PM Central; I'll start streaming around 6:30. You can join me at

Owncast & Certbot 

(For immediate purposes, I had certbot generate standalone keys.)

Owncast & Certbot 


There's no tutorial on adding certbot-generated keys to Owncast. Can I get
🔲 some quick directions?
🔲 a contributor to maybe add one?

I'm really enjoying using Owncast so far!

I swear to god, I wish I could tell you why "Dredd" is one of my favorite movies ever,

and I can't,

and it is

Oh, well. It seems to work decently.

I'm watching AEW's "Winter Is Coming" episode and reacting. You can watch with me.

Does anyone have a moment to give me some opinions? I have no idea how laggy or low-quality this stream is. I could really use your input.
