Looks Like Facebook Found a Way to Bypass Europe’s Privacy Rules
The draft decision, if ratified, could upend the protections provided by GDPR, Europe’s gold-standard privacy protections.

@Counsel I'd second @emacsomancer s suggestion. I found the Silmarillion a very difficult read though. Not sure why...

and Broadcom have done an excellent job of preventing me from running distros on my 2017 MacBook Pro. So much forum trawling this past week and I still can't get Zorin OS to establish a Wi-Fi connection, proprietary drivers or otherwise. 😞

I'm here for like two weeks. It feels much better than constantly being on Facebook. I'm calmer and more present.

But I really miss my #yarn and #handspinning tribe. I have noone to really share this passion with in real life, and there seems to be like I'm the only mastodon user in this niche.
Maybe I should not care and just create. It just feels a bit lonely like this.

Or maybe I'm just too stupid to navigate the #fediverse. But I'm really not that geeky Person...

@absinthe Could you please dump the apple scraps in the Hague? I'd love to make some apple cidre vinegar ;-)

Off topic, sewing 

@absinthe they are beautiful! I wish that it was easy to just go back to a lighter place... I do find that having a garden (or just nature) helps. Wishing you well. Please show more of your work!

If you want to preview how a post looks on Mastodon without anyone else seeing it, select a visibility of "Direct" and toot it. As long as you haven't @-ed anyone, only you will be able to see this post.

It will be a DM to yourself, which means it shows you exactly what the published post looks like, but keeps it hidden.

When you're happy to let others see it, use the "Delete & re-draft" option (in the post's "..." menu) to change the visibility to a more public setting. Then just toot it again, and it will be visible.

(If you want to make multiple changes, just keep DMing the post to yourself and redrafting until you're happy. When you're happy, redraft one more time and change the visibility to a non-direct setting.)

How to unfuck your life?
Keep on cooking!
From the top to the bottom: dried Carolina reaper, Moruga scorpion and unknown chilies, dried datterino tomatoes, loquat marmalade, apple, ginger and cinnamon jam and red bell pepper and red chili sauce.
Nice backstories: we've used wild apples which I've found on a tree near a highway junction -really sweet and crunchy!- and the loquats were a barter. we'll bring the owner of the tree a very hot sauce.
Why buy when you can forage or barter? :blobaww:

Excited to start the Milkwood Permaculture online course! Been wanting to do that for a couple of years now.

I want to host a HTML file under a domain I own, without needing any central server/organization and without a static IP.

What are my options?

So far, IPFS seems the best. I can put my file on the decentralized network by running my own node and use a TXT DSN entry to point that to my domain (

Any other alternatives?

I'm looking for something simpler and accessible (explaining IPFS, even for techy people, takes a lot).

boosts appreciated ✨

@Chris According to ObsIdentity: the very same, aka Sulphur tuft. I am by no means knowledgeable, so not eating anything until 100% sure.

@JohanEmpa true, I didn't get Mastodon at first, but it seems to grow on me :-). I actually enjoy my time here, where as doesn't really feel like I need to engage, only consume. I can have less of that please 😄

@peregrine I just couldn't handle the spiders 😄 it gave me the creeps!
