I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist

you can go to an online screen reader site like this one to check out the difference it makes: ttsreader.com #accessibility

#question: What's an awesome maker space Code of Conduct you know of? Please do share and boost.

I vaguely remember a space that used 3 central words to define how people should behave... Can someone point me to that too?

Go, Fedi.

An outstanding comic looking at what came *before* Stonewall, including Cooper's Do-Nuts in LA, 1959; Dewey's in Philadelphia, 1965; and Gene Compton's Cafeteria in San Francisco, 1966.

Holy crap y'all Streisand is an impressive piece of #FLOSS. github.com/StreisandEffect/str - If you're running Linux or Mac and can follow instructions *at all* then you can have a VPN set up in 20 minutes that you own and control, using any #cloud provider you like. Great for #privacy and also for evading annoying restrictions like JetBlue blocking everything other than ports 80/443 :) (Gonna tell me I can't SSH? Really? I think not :)

Quit using Mendeley people!

They started encrypting your database so you cannot easily move it over to other tools any more.

See:
zotero.org/support/kb/mendeley

That link also helps you saving your data before it's too late.

(Elsevier are a bunch of crooks, blocking interoperability one-way and not the other. Almost as bad as Google blocking uBlock for your safety...)
