We ran into some SSL certificate issues this weekend but we're back online!

Well I will inform some unfamiliar with @nextcloud it is a platform that runs like google-suite and then some and it is a great tool to disconnect from google etc. Check it out nextcloud.com/

Why would one do this well cause with syncloud.org it is pretty easy to run and connect. Any way worth exploring without giving up to terms of service from companies that have different interests in your data

I got locked out of Twitter and can't log back in. Glad we made this backup!

It is time to add orange to the list of words I can not spell!

To be honest, even if someone bought and fixed #Twitter, I probably wouldn't go back. I don't want to go back to for-profit, closed off (AKA, no ActivityPub integration) social media when there's a perfectly good alternative.

An #introduction for all the new peeps joining Mastodon:

Hey y’all I’m Will πŸ‘‹

I am a front end eng working at a cool password manager. Tech-wise, I’m into web components, RxJS, functional programming, and just open source software in general.

They're really about to ban us from promoting Socialism.Social on Twitter 😭

"Natural science will in time incorporate into itself the science of man, just as the science of man will incorporate into itself natural science: there will be one science."

*queen of England voice* He buckin on my ham til I palace

If socialism.social every decides to monetize, I'm going to be pretty mad if it's not something like donate $8/month to a union strike fund and get a red checkmark or something.
