PSA for European, North American and other northern-hemisphere dwellers:
Please don’t use the four-season cycle to measure time when posting or writing! Seasons are totally different in the Southern Hemisphere, and even different countries disagree on when they start and end (solstices or months). Christmas here is in summer, or more accurately on the border of Parradowee and Burral in the Dharawal 6-season cycle (because applying European seasons here is imperialist bullshit).
PayID is a completely flawed model. There will continue to be breaches.
Aussie banks warn customers after fresh PayID data breach
Fuck this is the darkest version of “guess how much I love you” I’ve ever read
These cockheads insist on vacuuming up every skerick of citizens’ online communication and then refuse to release letters from the PM to the head of state, even when a Court tells them they have to.
holy shit i did not know that the AFP were created because a prime minister got the shits for getting egged
that is a legendary level of being mad
Reminder that the AFP still brags about how it was created to protect a racist politician from an egging.
mastodon fork (boosts appreciated)
hey all, I'm working on figuring out logistics for the mastodon fork and I'm making lists of:
1. existing forks which already have features implemented (does your instance have non-standard features you like? let us know!)
2. outstanding feature requests on the upstream repo that need to be addressed
3. any minor changes you've made to your instance which are worth including (CSS changes, etc.)
also feel free to @ me with any suggestions, etc.
Pretty busy day for @EmvBot 😟
yep that's about what I thought he'd be like
there's some choice editing going on in that segment.
