I think I'll go back to @czottmann as my main Mastodon account. Turns out I don't use my own instance enough to spend €60/year on it.

@micahflee Lest I forget: your profile picture on your blog's sidebar cracks me up. Funny idea, that. :)

If you're not a fan of churches, another option is to look up a local halfway house that helps people get back on their feet after getting out of prison. My gram helps run a dismas house and they do wonders for helping people reintegrate after incarceration.

I guess what I'm saying is if you feel the need to donate, stop a moment and think about how to maximize your donations to help the most amount of people.

In USA, this might means taking an uncomfortable but sober look at our disfunctions.

If you're in America, instead of sending money in for Notre Dome have you considered sending money into one of the black churches who were arsoned?

One in Louisiana seems to have had some funding success on the back of this other popularized tragedy.

But there are a lot of other churches that haven't got the attention this one did.

On a meta level is kind of fucked up that the attention economy plays a role in hypocrisy of taking care of each other.

Die #Uploadfilter kommen. Eben hat Deutschland im EU-Rat der Reform des #Urheberrecht​s zugestimmt und gibt gerade eine absurde #Protokollerklärung ab:
„Im Mittelpunkt stehen die Urheber & Kreativen“ – das ist falsch:

@mookie Yeah, I could totally go for a proper SW game that is single-player and isn't about any of the Skywalkers.

PS: Ich mag das neue Format, und ich mach mir keinen Stress bzgl Veröffentlichungsrythmus. Es ist toll. 🖖

@jeirmeister Cool, thank you!

And I wouldn't say it like that, either ;)

@andy Hah, yes, that's the one. :) I rarely use it but as it doesn't cost me anything because of the referrals, I kept it going.

The other day I realized that I have an ongoing hosting plan that is as old as our youngest student intern.

Ffs, if you're still searching through Google - please don't. There are DuckDuckGo, Ecosia, Startpage, SearX and in almost all cases it's enough. If you really can't find something, switching to Google search is one "!g" away in DuckDuckGo.
