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.

Wasting time is an underrated hobby and I blame our Society.

Having a solid night. Tomorrow, I go out to the new land for a Texas burn.

It's gonna be a decided shift.

Dang. Brought a bag of clasps to Austin with me to sew onto a cloak.

Except it's an entire bag of the hook halves. There's another bag in Houston with loop halves that ain't doin' me much good.

Okie dokie. I feel better than earlier. Unsure if I'm a 9 of 10, but I'm at least a 7, 7.5.

I did good things. I did unexpected things. I took a walk. I have a cat on my lap.

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.
