#Protip: "Drafts" on Mastodon
Mastodon doesn't natively support a "draft mode", where in-process toots can be saved and re-edited.
... but ... you can emulate this by setting default posting to "DM", and not filling in any recipients. A DM toot not shared with any third parties is visible only to yourself. You can then post, and delete/redraft this toot until it's complete to your satisfaction.
On devices/platforms where Web content is prone to disappear without notice (o hai Chrome Android mufferphuckerz) this may prove useful, especially where researching links / content for a substantial toot.
Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.
#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.
#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄
(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)
Desired #mastodon feature:
The ability to mute someone for a given period of time so I can just pretend they don't exist a while.
Iosevka is a #monospace font that supports ligatures as well configurable variant glyphs and line thickness. Iosevka's ligatures are optimized for programming, and provide a cleaner look for multi character symbols like -> and ==. Iosevka features alternate glyphs for most letters, and can be built to include or exclude these glyphs as well as ligatures.

So I use Reddit quite a bit because I really enjoy the format. I like how many perspectives you get and often learn and expand my ideas from the comments.
I’ve managed to avoid the toxicity that Reddit is known for, but I’d still like to migrate away for a myriad of reasons.
Anyone familiar with them or others?
Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.
Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.
This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.
Many of you have asked, and we explain. Tor Browser ships with a defense called Letterboxing that prevent fingerprinting your screen dimensions. It adds margins to the window and it stops websites from identifying your exact screen size. Browse safely!
#Firejail is a namespace sandboxer.
Firejail is a program that confines processes into lightweight #Linux namespace sandboxes. Namespaces in Linux can be used to limit what resources (filesystems, networks, USB, etc.) a process has access to. Firejail supports many programs by default, and can be configured to support others or to use special options with configuration files.

A friend phrased this very well a little bit ago: The "they're all the same" rhetoric is actually right-wing agitprop. Don't believe it.
Republicans *want* you not to vote at all, for THE SAME REASON they want to suppress the vote: It's the only way they win.
PROVE THEM WRONG.
If you think you're going to sit home and sulk in November rather than vote for the party that is at least closer to your own interests, then you're giving Republicans your power.
THEY WANT YOU TO STAY HOME. They got burned by vote splitting in 1992, then weaponized it in 2000.
