At first it was an eyeroller, now it’s legitimately sad that so many friends and acquaintances are waiting for some stranger to tell them it’s OK to be human again. What’s it going to take, people?

@shebang @thor i got pleroma installed and first user (me!) created, but nginx doesn't like "proxy_cache_path" in the pleroma.nginx file. Did either of you run into the same issue and have advice? freenode: is rather silent

Anonymous reports were once considered "leads" by journalists, now they are not only "news", they are the only news.

@black6_ Probably most of them as Corona already exists for decades. Everyone may already have it. Covid-19 is just the current variation. Just like the flu. Also the reason why vaccins still won't work (there still isn't one for Aids either, wich is also related). They have already shown even current Covid-19 already has variations in the DNA level over the planet. They even named a new one Covid-20 already. Besides this, all those PCR tests used totally suck and aren't reliable at all.

What do you guys use to Party watch stuff together? I'd love to do a watch party of Rubicon with No Agenda Peeps. Got the whole season backed up.

I've tried TwoSeven & Zoom offers really good audio & video & I don't mind paying for the premium thing if I can get a consistent watch party thing going. Jitsi seems to have some sort of delay.

If we could get samples from the past and test them, how many of the “advanced age” and “natural causes” deaths had a human coronavirus in their system at the time of death? I don’t suppose we’ll ever know, and it wouldn’t make a lick of a difference in the current climate if we could, but it is an interesting thought (at least to me).

Any know how to produce ANSI (.ans) BBS art[1] and might be interested in creating/converting something to replace the default Synchronet logon splash for the BBS?

Any assistance from the slightly more artistically inclined would be greatly appreciated.

Our first year sending a human resource to public schools, and you’d think, based on dissemination of information and how smoothly everything is going so far, that this is the first year the school district has been in existence. The whole experience has been a shit show from the online registration portal being broken, to being told the wrong bus schedule, and even starting a whole month late with less than a week’s notice.

Hi. If you're gonna fucking tell somebody to google (or duckduckgo or whatever) something when they ask for help, just shut the fuck up. Most people know perfectly well how to search for shit, and if they're not finding things, they'll turn to the people instead of the shitty search engines. You're insulting their intelligence, and you're making them feel shitty about needing help. Everybody starts somewhere. If you've got the knowledge, share it! Help others! Quit putting them down!

It takes time to register on forums, it takes time to post the question, it takes time to figure out how to explain the problem. And if they're going through that process, there's a good fucking chance that they've already exhausted their search options, and are probably frustrated.

So just don't. You're being an asshole and nobody whatsoever ever appreciates being told "here let me google that for you" or "go google it" or any of that. If you have the knowledge, share it. Otherwise, shut. The. Fuck. Up.

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'Oppression!'
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw

@thor you and @shebang both run your own Pleroma instances. How is the setup/maintenance? Is there a guide besides the documentation/man pages you found helpful?

@black6_ @SirMorganANSI_C @raintrees you have to enter the "New" account password to be able to create a new account, that's just to prevent randoms/spammers from creating accounts. That password is "ITM!". Later you will create your account and make your own password, though you may want to just jot down the generated password on a post-it because the password complexity rules are odd
