Googel abuses its supremacy to bully or even abandon small providers under the pretext of security & protection of its users. Thus, with the compulsion to use OAuth2 for applications, they are running a gauntlet through their procedure, which makes it almost impossible for any of them to do so. This is how Google seals off GMail from the outside world as its own system.

All art is valid, and you're allowed to do whatever helps you make the art you want to make;
Turn the paper around because you can only draw good lines in one direction? It's fine!
Draw in pencil first in multiple iterations? Do it!
Use a million reference images? Yesferatu!
Trace the things you're having trouble drawing? Totes McGoats :D
The things that enable you to create are not 'cheating' - they're tools.
in case you're watching my TL and you wonder what "my usual" is...
lore, hard, light, rock, kinda pop, they've got everything
I don't support murder but I do think we need an armed revolution. The old, demented, cranky white guys in government (even the not old and not white and not guy ones) don't represent us, they were just one of the only two or three names on the ballot. The problem with revolution is, the FBI and CIA are already in full control. They know who the revolutionaries are, and unless we act REALLY, REALLY FAST, they will hunt down and imprison/execute all of us.
Because We The People is dead.

I started doing FediFollows (and slightly later FediTips and FediVideos) as the pandemic has severely restricted my social and job opportunities.
It is such a messed-up situation, I have to do something constructive to stay sane. Hopefully what I do on here is useful to others
My main aim with the "Fedi" accounts is to help people off Twitter, Facebook etc sustainably.
If you appreciate my work, please consider leaving me a tip (links are in my profile).
2 more days! We have exciting news to share! ✨

Morning all! What’s everyone up to today? Sunday is generally my day to do nothing.
After seeing all the lovely photos of cats for Caturday, it made me wonder if there was a day for dogs? Maybe we could make Sunday their day.
Here’s my pup Gracie. She’s a 13 year old Boxer/Terrier mix that we got as a rescue. She’s the sweetest thing who’s had a hard life but is living the dream now.
Not everyone uses #Linux for the same purpose - and first of all: That's okay! Anyway I am interested how YOU use it.
Further, a lot of newbies especially can't find a topical community that suits them, because a lot of these are focused on art or technology or being queer, which, guess what, is unwelcoming to a lot of people! Granted, that's what general-purpose instances are for, and that's probably why they're under such a heavy load right now.
Cogito ergo sum. Therefore I am, I think
A instance dedicated - but not limited - to people with an interest in the GNU+Linux ecosystem and/or general tech. Sysadmins to enthusiasts, creators to movielovers - Welcome!
