Rewatching Stuart Lee's Comedy Vehicle in which he offers the following explanation of 1980s England.
Labour: "The poor, who do not deserve to be poor, deserve to be helped by the rich, who do not deserve to be rich."
Conservative: "The poor, who deserve to be poor, do not deserve to be helped by the rich, who deserve to be rich."
Perfect, even today.

A search engine for #peertube
"PeerTube Index is a centralized search engine for PeerTube videos. We run a crawler that visits PeerTube instances to find videos and new instances. All found videos are made searchable by their name. We exclude videos marked as Not Safe For Work (NSFW) for now.
This site is not affiliated to Framasoft, the maintainer of the PeerTube software. "
It's only fitting that we've got a Trump version, of course!

"Securely and anonymously share files of any size. A web server is started, making OnionShare accessible as a Tor Onion Service, potentially temporarily or in a stealthy manner, over the Internet. An unguessable address is generated and is shared for the recipient to open in the Tor Browser to download the files. No separate server or third party file-sharing service required. You host the files on your own computer."
There's a GUI, but the CLI is so good, just `onionshare somestuff.bin` and you get a temporary onion service serving a static password protected website with the file made available. By default once the file has been downloaded, everything shuts down.
SpaceBear is a managed hosting service that makes it easier to create your own PixelFed, Mastodon, PeerTube or HomeTown instance.

You can follow SpaceBear at:
Their website is at https://app.spacebear.ee
(HomeTown is a fork of Mastodon which includes support for non-federated posts.)
