Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June:

That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D

Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.

Hab den Vogelgott von Susanne Röckel fertiggelesen und es ist nicht die New Weird Literatur I was looking for. Glaub, da muss ich morgen noch was dazu bloggen.

Wer nannte es Appetit auf Fast Food und nicht Burgerbegehren?

I have somehow managed to spend more than an hour browsing for a new parasol for my balcony because my old one broke. But then I also have days on which I struggle with picking a toothpaste when the supermarket has 20 brands. ><

Got such an overdose of sunshine and pollen before noon that now I'm sunburnt and my eyes are swollen and I'll be staying inside all afternoon cleaning my flat and playing AC Black Flag.

Wenn die Absicht von Musk war, die Engineering Org von Twitter zu zerstören, dann ist er bereits fertig.

Firmen bluten vom Kopfe her. Das "Engineering Talent", das wirklich was kann, hat seinen Entschluß gefaßt und geht als erstes. Die Leute, die für Twitter wichtig waren haben ihren Entschluß gefaßt.

Write Freely :writefreely: is another type of server on the Fediverse :fediverse:

Its focus is entirely on long form text posts, so things like articles, essays, stories etc. It has a very minimalist interface which aims to be as distraction-free as possible, so that it's easier for readers to actually read.

You can follow Write Freely accounts from Mastodon etc because they are both on the Fediverse.

There's more info on the official site at and you can follow the project at @writefreely

You can get a Write Freely account from servers listed at or at

There are official apps at
