Just started using https://uptimerobot.com for lain.haus
Would be cool if there was a communal, self-hosted alternative to this. Where participating servers ping eachother
my work colleagues think I'm weird and annoying because I won't install google #chrome
"annoying" because the (proprietary) saas thing we're building is only tested in chrome and some of the buttons aren't working in #FireFox
"weird" because I also say things like: "well, I value my privacy and I don't need those people spying on everything I do"
I'm not sure if this is cognitive dissonance on their part, or just pure ignorance.

If you're an instance admin and want to incorporate democratic decision making from your users into running your instance, Sunbeam City runs a Loomio instance and we can set up a group for your Mastodon instance. I can also help with any questions you might have. Reply or DM me if you're interested.
#OpenStreetMap is a user-created detailed map of the entire world:
Like Wikipedia anyone can use or edit it, and the content is free and open. There are no ads or trackers either.
For apps, we would recommend OsmAnd for Android/iOS: https://osmand.net
(OsmAnd is also available on @fdroidorg )
@p I mean there are plenty of jobs I could get without going to school. People paint the world as black and white, and say if you don't go to school you will die. Bs. I personally love farming. School has never gotten in the way of me farming. I grow pants in my windows every day. I hate the idea of working in a cubicle for the rest of my life.
I just want to give a public shoutout to @wordsmith who is in search of fellow poets to connect with here on Mastodon.
Like many of you, they have come here looking for creative freedom after the Tumblr crumble.
If you are a poet, or know any poets who would be interested in connecting with Wordsmith, please don't hesitate to reach out to them or reply to this toot.
