The new Firefox is amazing
Ok, I'll made my #mastodonMonday post on twitter, here:
How about you? Should we get it trending again?
my main account has shifted to todon.nl
The mastodon.social account I will continue to use to boost from time to time, or to engage with the local timeline.
If you prefer just reading some of my toots the email@example.com is just perfect.
If happy to read more you'll go to this one @paulfree14
Why is the Debian running on a virtual machine with no access to the internet saying "You have new mail." when I log in?
Where did that mail come from?
Who sent it?
How do I read it?

When I joined masto, I gravitated towards following creative peeps and noticed a thing that's pretty common to all of us: we feel guilty for promoting places that people can buy our work or otherwise support us financially. So I started the #CreativeToots hashtag for that very reason. Got an Etsy page? Online store? Patreon? Selling a piece of art? Throw that tag on it. Do it with unfettered abandon. Everyone else: Look at that tag for artists to support. Buy their stuff. Help them create. <3
omg all you comics folks are awesome! Welcome welcome! These are for you 🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍
Top tip: use the "mute tab" option in Firefox as a signal to self to stop checking social media and do some work.
I'm heading to bed (UTC-7 here) delightfully overwhelmed by all the new artists filling the #fediverse with #art, #creativetoots, & inspiration 😍 lub. Keep on arting while scrolling endlessly down the local timeline to say hi, fave, follow & boost those toots. Welcome again & thank you for inspiring others!
Every time you write code that requires Chrome or CEF or Electron, just remember: you are giving Google control over you and your users.
You are letting them dictate what you can and cannot do. You are letting them view your user's potentially private activities (URLs are always sent to Google without Debian's patch set).
You are becoming a part of their toxic culture, their neocapitalism.
