Can I just say to all you , thanks for being you. I forget sometimes how the world can be better reading the news, or twitter or facebook. But this place just seems so much more humaahn, nerdy and weird, just like home. Don't ever change.

However, I think that in our case such a scenario is highly unlikely. First of all, the order of events is reversed--ActivityPub and Mastodon have been built after Twitter, as improvements over Twitter, and the current, not insignificant userbase has specifically left Twitter over bad features, management, or misaligned incentives, so there is essentially no risk of losing that userbase back to Twitter even if it joined the space.

Dear fellow white people:

"White" and "normal" aren't synonyms.

Get used to the idea that you are one among an infinite selection of variations on a theme, and that MOST of those selections don't look, believe, or behave like you.

You are not normal. You are not better. You are just you.

Love,
Ellie

I am nothing but a disembodied head, floating in the Great River of Profit, helpless as a leaf tossed by the ebb and flow of capital. I release myself. I let go. I am free, free to win, free to lose. The Market will Guide me to my Reward.

Cool, sent that from the unix "toot" tool. Unix makes me poetic apparently. I assume that doesn't brake any rules? It's just another client.

So, anyone know when the next Short comes out? I need a fix.

reminder that George Orwell was in favor of what is now known as "political correctness," which he, in fact, considered to be "only the most ordinary politeness"

@OCRbot

also interesting is that he considers it debatable whether it's even OK to fly the Union Jack - "perhaps..."

Risa has fantastic tortellini. Took some cooking classes too, learned to make Gagcht with pesto sauce.

Back from vacation on Risa for a week, I hope the bar is in good shape.

Of course, I could have run, none of them knew me. But I was in the right position behind him after another attack and I brought home my blade into his heart. I watched the light in his eyes go out as he realized I had enchanted him earlier.

I do not regret it, yet I see that face in my dreams now. I haunts me. But I'm glad since I finally have found a clue on the Cressik, with luck, I will soon return to you.

With love, SJ.

Dearest Jessica,
I killed a man yesterday. Not that I haven't done it before, but this man had not wronged me or attacked me, at least not yet. He was the former associate of the band of adventurers I ran into after (ruin town) and it was helpful to attack him to gain their trust. Once the battle started a Green Dragon had demanded we all kill this man to feed him or else become a meal ourselves.
