Encountered today. I believe it's a female eastern tiger swallowtail.

Influx of new Mastodon followers == more cat pictures to fill demand...

If you're a nonprofit building a web browser AND you value user privacy... at what point do you start demonstrating that by refraining from technology experiments that include shipping off user data to a central third party? 2/2

From the post: "At Mozilla, we believe browser history is sensitive information and we want people to clearly understand that Laserlike will receive their web browsing history before installing the experiment."

Good that it's opt-in and offers control over data retention, but I have a question 1/2

I'm partial, of course, but sometimes my cat is ridiculously photogenic.

You gotta be kidding me.

TFW you see the feline butt-wiggle of leaping... and know perfectly well that the perch that the cat thinks she sees is a lie.

Dear cat:

Why yes... I can go on for much longer on Mastadon!

Seriously, though, kudos for realizing that it is more companionable to be sitting in the chair next to mine... as opposed to on my keyboard.

Love,
Galen
