@welshpixie Oh dang. That's me most nights these days.
Lol, should really stop doing that while I watch TV.
Security theater is worse than nothing. Security theater gives people the false impression that their risks have been mitigated, when actually things are just as dangerous.
After al, if you know that danger exists, you can take some steps to mitigate or avoid it.
But if you have the false impression that you've been made safer, you might unwittingly engage in risky behavior.
Republican members of Congress who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory, even after a deadly riot at the Capitol, are getting denounced by critics in their home districts who demand that they resign or be ousted. http://apne.ws/L6qGsm3 https://twitter.com/AP/status/1348381864143319041 #News #AP #Biden #Congress #Republican

For all my twitter friends & followers, I will say...
1. Its 2021, maybe time to switch to Mastodon?
2. I might now finally see your direct messages thanks to Cawbird 1.3 - https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2021/01/cawbird-1-3-released-for-linux-distros
@DCLXVI oh, haven't checked that out. Usually use Mastodon from Tusky on my phone, so I hadn't noticed.
@DCLXVI for sure. It kills me that Microsoft didn't open source Edge when the dropped their own engine. Still, I've been very happy with Firefox since I switched back about a year ago.
@dansup Federated forum? I didn't even realize there was Federated forum software. Off to investigate!
The Free Software Foundation is asking for suggestions for what its new priorities should be. You don't have to be a member, anyone can send a suggestion by email.
It would be great if we could get them to prioritise the Fediverse including Mastodon, PixelFed etc, you can find out more here:
They need suggestion emails by 8th January 2021.
I know FSF generates mixed feelings on here, but it would help get the Fediverse noticed if they promote it.
