I'm testing locally hosting my theme fonts for performance this morning. Also considering supporting only modern browsers, with system fallbacks for older ones. Anyone got any pros/cons to that decision that I should consider?

Why libraries are the greatest places on earth:

- books
- free!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- quiet, so quiet, so peaceful is heaven
- people leave you alone
- also movies and computers and things
- staff literally know everything and want you to know everything thanks
- you can stay the whole time they're open and not have to pay anything at all
- you can get lost in the big ones and that's cool
- mmm smells of wisdom

Imagine going to a bookstore, buying a book, and then trying to read it at a coffee shop or at a park or at home and a corporation smacks the book out of your hand says "no you bought it in our store, you only read it in our store".

Almost forgot to let everyone know that it’s an important day of the month for my kind.

I've been reading @darius 's guide on running a small social network, and it's been giving me a lot of ideas. If administering a Mastodon instance or a small community social network interests you, definitely give this a read! runyourown.social/

#Privacy / #Security Pro-Tip of the Day: Privacy and security are less convenient. There is no way around this. It is often likely that the less convenient a measure is, the more secure it is.

This is not just digitally, but in the physical world as well.

+ Locking your door is less convenient than not locking it.
+ Closing your blinds is less convenient than not closing them.
+ Randomly generating passwords and storing them in a password manager is less convenient than using the same, memorable password for everyone.
+ Using a password manager is less convenient than not using one.

Come to terms with this and you will be much safer and much more private.

Feel free to boost to keep your friends safe! Follow me for more privacy and security tips in the future.

I've listened to the newest Keane single a dozen times already, and I'm still not convinced that it's not actually The Killers.
