If you're too poor for A/C, here's what I did when I was also too poor for A/C. Copper tubing attached to fan with zip ties. Plastic tubing attached to fishtank pump, submerged in beer cooler full of ice water. Cold water runs through the pipes and makes 'em frostycold, fan blows frostycold at hot people. Works pretty well! Lots of guides online on how to make one. Put a towel on the floor in front of it, lots of condensation.

Fediverse, what's a good collection of documents / papers on toxic online communities, moderation (or lack of), vocal minorities and online abuse?
(please boost/share) :)

Good to know: "Some messaging apps specifically protect against this scenario by not allowing backups. Signal or Wire, for example, don’t have backup features."

Upcoming version of Mastodon (2.4.1) will have a delete & redraft function.

Looks like gitlab has an auto import feature for moving from github, so I guess I'll be going with them for now. (You can find it by selecting projects, then selecting new project).
