there's a scholar to my right that is known for a book on algorithms. I feel like this is an algo-discourse British Library chair warming competition. I'm keeping my chair warm way past my normal leaving hour 🔥 😤 🔥
randomly writing stuff down, my thesis planning is going out the window.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ printer stopped ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ what good is the introduction and background without the core argument 🙄

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!
