Pinned toot

I am rarely happier than when I'm reading about weird fish

...and apparently now it's back up! Networking is weird, y'all.

Elekk is down, and unfortunately it seems like it's not just me; my whole cloud cluster seems to be broken in some way. I'm working on getting it fixed.

Elekk folks, I apologize for the downtime; the server's NIC has crashed and my host is taking their sweet damn time getting it fixed. I'll have the site back up as fast as I can.

This Elekk thing is really frustrating (and it doesn’t help that I have to do everything through the damn web console, which while a Linux prompt is really slow.

Elekk is down. I’m not sure what’s going on but I am investigating.

Here we go! Are you a trans creator who could use some support and exposure, or do you know one? Add your name to for 2017, where we provide a list of trans people you can support instead of or in addition to your Black Friday spending.

Please boost and spread the word!

Elekk is down briefly while I resize its virtual instance. We’re gonna have so much RAM!

I'm gonna take a little pressure off m.s - I'll be posting as @noelle for a while.

Pro tip: When you talk back to a mod by saying "but technically the rules say...", they are never going to say "you are technically correct, the best kind of correct".

vetrans, it is your responsibility to take these newcomers and teach them the sacred ways of the herd.

They must know of the 🅱️ , and the oats, and the yams, and how to spell gameing. The awoos and the toots and the rotating coyotes, eternally spinning. Someone must teach them of Gargamel :gargamel: and what we do in this house. They must be introduced to the witches and the commies and the furries and the trans folks.

Let the people share our rich heritage!

Reminder: the right to speak is not the same thing as the right to be heard.
