Watching new Pinky and the Brain and they went to the NSA and stole data with a SCSI cable.

I was about to go, "hold on, what?", then remembered that it's a government agency and I wouldn't be surprised at all if they still used that old of tech.


So, considering the predictable influx of white supremacists into this network can we have an update on this?

* Send money to progressive organizations who need the help
* The world doesn't need my spicy take on it

reminder that qoto has a "remote timelines" feature where it basically fetches the public-facing timeline of a user and puts it as a column in the multiple column mastodon view

This piece by @/Hexacult_Beast on :birdsite: is so wonderful...
