@baldur Perhaps we shouldn't hand over the web to companies at all.
Hello Mastodon friends!
If you can, and if this is relevant for your nationality, consider voting in this November's United States midterm election. Many states offer early voting and expats may be able to cast ballots electronically. Double check online to make sure your vote will be counted -- I already have personally.
Thank you for listening.
@Wimpress so... How is it?
#Mexico: Where they run the air conditioning at half strength to save money, then leave the doors open, never insulate buildings, and have single pane glass.

#JSON is great until you need a serialization layer on top of your serialization layer for dates.
There's this weird meme going pedantic circles claiming that "north America has no native buffalo" and that the American buffalo is actually a bison.
That's as stupid as saying, "Actually, a 'chip' is a thick slice of potato, deep fried."
Go to m-w.com and look up buffalo. Across the pond, the definition might be different, but that just makes it different, not wrong. North American bison are buffalo, and to argue otherwise is the worst kind of pedantry: *wrong* pedantry. Stop it.
Yup, went to #MachuPicchu.

@afarian really? Ubuntu. It's too mainstream for distro hipsters but it's hard to go wrong with.
