@casey I do
@d I have a lead on one now! My favorite barista is from Melbourne, so.
@jgmac1106 The coffee I've had in Italy and France is really, really not to my taste. It generally tastes like burnt Starbucks to me. The only exception is a plain espresso shot which I think they do okay. Turkish coffee is essentially a different beverage from what I'm talking about and it gets a pass :)

@ceejbot I'd never been to a Fry's until a couple years ago but was super impressed because my standards are so low
Just FYI, Mastodon v2.6.0 web client adds a nice feature that makes having inline RSS feeds (via something like my RSS-to-ActivityPub converter, https://bots.tinysubversions.com/convert ) much more convenient. The feature adds a "read more" to any post that is taller than a certain number of pixels, so now my "podcasts" list renders in a way that makes more sense. ("Read more" opens up a detail dialogue where you can read the full post in-client.)
@nicknicknicknick can you tell me the issue number / date or what is on the cover?
@xuv podcastaddict is fine -- not an enthusiastic endorsement but the best I've found. don't know if it's on f-droid

@garbados I wonder if it's partly stockholm syndrome re: her local (as in township-level) Republican party. like "these specific people have treated me well my whole life therefore I will ignore the fact that they are affiliated with people who want me dead". it's a super fucked kind of compartmentalization!!!!
@sifr what's your favorite in Europe?
@hypirlink I'm one of those weirdos who never has more than like 8 browser tabs open, period

what I love about reading chase strangio—and this is in contrast not only with the rhetoric of cis allies but also trans advocacy groups—is that he is always, always speaking from a position of strength, always calling out bullshit, always framing trans rights in the context of *everyone's* rights. I'm so sick of statements like this from the NCTE that assume I'm "alone" and "frightened" instead of determined and ready to fight https://transequality.org/press/releases/in-response-to-the-new-york-times-october-21-story-trump-administration-eyes-defining
@sifr Wellington New Zealand is the only place I've had better coffee (I suspect if I went to Melbourne I would say the same)
I'm the administrator of this server. https://tinysubversions.com is where most of my stuff lives.
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
