Who uses Ring Central for video meetings? lol also told I need to install a modern standard browser like Chrome or Edge Chromium to take part. I guess Firefox isn't modern or standard? lol Yeah, guess I am not attending this meeting!

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

As of right now it seems like I am switching from DuckDuckGo to Searx.space for my search engine, as I found a instance that works. An alternative I've been looking at is Mojeek.com. I want nothing to do with Google or Microsoft been like this for years.

Julie E. “Tawny” Kitaen, who famously appeared in several music videos for the rock group Whitesnake in the ‘80s, has died. The Orange County, Calif. coroner’s office, which listed her as Tawny Finley, stated that she died at her home in Newport Beach on Friday morning, but a cause of death has not been revealed. She was 59. variety.com/2021/film/news/taw

What browser are you using as your main/personal? If Firefox (like me) are you prepared for the future as it appears to be a slow death? Once everything is Chromium based... Will Chromium (CBR) *(ungoogled chromium) going to be your choice?

Anyone out there using Searx as your default search engine and if so what instance are you using and why did you choose it? I see 87 listed and looking to switch from DuckDuckGo to Searx... or StartPage or Quant.... and if you use one of those instead why?

So I just dumped Facebook. I first joined in 2006. Same age as Twitter. Anyone who needs to keep in touch has my phone number or can find it on their own. I was only their to stay connected to old friends, family and my past. I'm now only active on Twitter, Mastadon and GNUSocial

Watching "The Shining" which I don't think I've seen in over 20 years? One of my favorite movies of all time as a kid.

Looks like Audacity will be dead to me and many others. I was afraid of this garbage happening. A couple of days since Muse acquisition, already adds telemetry (Universal Analytics), disguised as "anonymous analytics and crash reports"

Just discovered the advanced interface in Mastodon. Turns it into what I back when I used TweetDeck.com.
