I'm keeping an eye on things but may miss a few here and there.

If you know users looking for an account but have been squashed due to the influx of account creations, please let me know and I can send them a registration link.

@djsundog @wxcafe all the spam signups on my instance originated from a bunch of related Russian ISPs, try blocking these ranges: gist.github.com/patf/1ae99fdd1

Seems to have done the trick for me, no new signups in the last ~2 hours and plenty of blocked requests in my logs

running `chown -R $(whoami) /lib` to own the libs

OsmAnd+ maps 3 beta is in F-Droid and looks like it is much, much better than previous versions.

The real benefit of GDPR is I get emails reminding me of all the sites I have to delete my account on.

Gentle reminder to please put alt text on your images if you are able to as a common courtesy to low vision/blind users. Screen readers cannot magically describe images, they need that alt text.

I wrote a post on the first 50 days of Switter from my perspective and my real identity, and cover FOSTA/SESTA, the stress of running Switter, getting kicked off Cloudflare and the DDOS attack we got hit by last week.

Someone issued a gender take so hot that drawing gender-nonconforming lions is a meme over on Twitter right now.

"I'm not sure exactly how this mellow song originally for piano became an 80's dance ballad, but that's the magic of collaboration." - @sixohsix about "Traces Of Existence", which he made with @safertohatethem for the #MusicCollab. But not only is it an 80's dance ballad, it also has an absolutely amazing lo-fi middle part. I 💙 this song very much and I heard it's been played on the radio!

You can listen to this song (and all the other ones) here: awhaleslantern.bandcamp.com/tr

I'm super disappointed that my toot about pussy as a superfood wasn't more popular 😞

Also tumbleweeds on birdsite.

For a comic about people who stop time when they have orgasms, and then use that ability to rob banks... "Sex Criminals" is surprisingly delicate and tender. The relationships are top-notch.

Totally recommended.
