So many toots to restore manually. This will be fun. ✨

Probably, it's a good thing being totally down-on-the-low: data loss of everything after January 20th being the reality of the fallout from Linode's STUPID greedy garbage plan to start billing people on an anti Net-Neutrality metered system.

Yeah, they "free upgraded" my account a few times over the last 7 years I've been a loyal promoter and customer (upgrades I never asked for or needed), and then when they switched billing, I started getting nickeled and dimed for all of those upgrades.

Worse of all: turns out, I'd been backing up my non-prod database. Linode's news upset me so much that I didn't realize it until after it was gone.

Anyway... we now have a more beautiful theme, some fabulous on the GitHub repo, lots of links and details for other smart folks who might want to run their own Apache-friendly Mastodon instance, and...

AND, we have verbosity enabled to 1733 characters, so actual conversations can happen.

Let's do this.


Some people have been hearing the calls to overthrow oligarchs, fascism, REITs, dictators, HOAs, totalitarians, landlords, tyrants, and every other related colonist garbage entity for a very long time.

"While we're disrupted, let's fix the economy"[1] is a idea from Mark Charles. It will work.

Put sane people in charge, and things work.

"Repatriation with Representation" means acknowledging the PERPETRATORS correctly to give the oppressed voices their rightful spaces. Both colonial forms of government in the US and Canada have done insane and irreparable damage to the Arctic people and lands. The colonial form of government in Russia has been exploiting longer, so it's a glimpse of what is to come for anyone unwilling to change.

If you haven't heard yet, another perpetrator is illegally trying to set up an "industrial mining district in Bristol Bay."[2]

Are the Bristol Urban apartment complexes in Portland ready to acknowledge who the real landowners are? Its rent-collectors already failed the compost test, and they really DO NOT recycle properly, either. [3]
