"Finding yourself" is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. You are also not lost.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

An FYI, Payless is closing ALL their stores after an private equity firm saddled them with more debt than could be paid (same thing happened to Toys R Us).

ah! a couple of bald eagles were chirping at each other behind our apartment--one landed in a tree for a bit, the other kept circling, then they both circled up over the building and away. dunno if they were flirting or scrapping for territory. neat! :D

A couple things I saw and thought "Mastodon will love this":

- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook:
