The sky has that pale, four-horsemen yellow color that you see before a tornado, right here in the PNW. Odd, because this isn't normally the place you see a tornado...

Hold me! 😨

Serious topic 

What's your opinion on the "if you're not apart of the solution, you're apart of the problem" mentality a lot of people have? I've been thinking over it quite a bit recently and wanted to hear other's thoughts.

fedi, what are your essential browser addons?

Aaand I'm back to Tusky. For now. It's just more polished, and I don't have time for the quirks atm.

I'm trying out Fedilab after using Tusky for a while. It's better overall, but there are some things that are quicker and easier on Tusky.

I'm still not quite comfortable in this setting (fediverse, social media), but I'm getting there. The extra complexity of Fedilab is a larger hurdle, but I'm going to try to stick it out for a bit.

I still don't know a lot about all the platforms that Fedilab can manage (pleroma, etc), but I continue to read up on things.

Nicholas Cage, good or bad? The eternal question has been answered by The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. Community fans, rejoice!

Passing thru DFW to visit family, and the Internet is in the bathroom stall to greet me.

I think it's time for a new #introduction post. Hello, I am proud to finally say my name is Unix Blue (but please call me Blue), my pronouns are She/They and I am a trans femme looking (urgently) for a role in IT, ideally infosec. I've been unemployed for over a month now for several reasons and I need to provide for my family. If you have any job leads to spare, they would be appreciated.

I also do some #gaming, a lot of #destiny2 and #witcher3 specifically as of late. I'd like to thank everyone on this awesome instance for helping me feel comfortable enough to finally come out as myself on here, especially the amazing @thegibson who has been supportive the whole way though. #hacktheplanet!

I think I've asked this before, but I'm pretty sure I deleted the post. Does have a rules page? I've done some looking around, and I don't see one anywhere.

I'm the opposite of extremely online for at least ten years now. I don't know what the hell people are talking about sometimes.

Can someone point me to some kind of refresher that explains things like DNI, stan, 'this websites', and other goofy lingo?

I feel so old googling this stuff...

🔖"RIP Medical Debt"

"Eradicate medical debt at pennies on the dollar."

Charity that buys medical debt and forgives it.

Can anyone advise me on the best way to report something that may be a security risk?

I have a credit card thru a large bank which sends me spam sometimes. I can't figure out how to opt out, so I clicked the unsub link in the latest email. The page it goes to shows me someone else's name, their email, and the last 4 digits of their acct #.

I should report this to the bank, but there must be reputable firms that can help apply pressure without allowing anything to be swept under the rug.

To all the mamas out there: Happy Mother's Day!

Despite my slight hostility towards crypto, I have been participating in the Pi Network at the request of a friend. Does anyone know anything about this besides what the official communications say?

It seems like it could be some kind of scam for personal information. Aside from that, I figure it's harmless as far as crypto goes, due to the proof-of-stake nature of it.
