Humble Bundle just went live with an Australia Fire Relief Bundle.

All the proceeds goes to 3 different charities (you can choose how much to which).

#HumbleBundle #AustraliaFires

(this is a partnered link, but money only goes to charity from what I can tell, and I wholly support there.)

queer.party is about to go down fire updates! see you soon!

FYI friends, queer.party will be going down for some backend updates in a little bit!

superintendent, i hope you're ready for mouthwatering hamburgers

hey fediverse, i need some help here.

looking for information on the !/#PocketZip USB dock accessory for the Clik! PCMCIA card drive - specifically on how it works or whether alternatives to it exist

also looking for information on the USB interface for the Iomega media player, because it seems to use a proprietary port (the manual refers to it as "Iomega mini USB", but I can't find any other information on it & am afraid to poke about inside the unit

boosts appreciated 💜

okay it's childish gambino homegirl drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot, drop it like the NASDAQ

hey you know what i absolutely love to see on the links google presents to me when i'm searching for a specific problem and someone else has posted on github about having that problem?

"This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not had recent activity. It will be closed if no further activity occurs. Thank you for your contributions."

me, after buying coffee: i will wait 1 (one) hour in order for this to cool and not burn me
me, starting to drink the coffee 2 hours later: this is not lukewarm, this is lukecold.

Do you like goofing around with telephony? Can you dial UK or US numbers?

Have fun with my Very Useful and Cool phone lines!

Dial:
+44 3 333 404 420 for PR Gnus
+1 (412) 40-69-141 for some music from the Windows XP new-user tour software
+44 1337 515 404 also for Windows XP
+44 1337 895 386 to hear random hold music - a great number to give to telemarketers!

friends, I got this response back from the dataset's author regarding removal of information from it (cc @Siphonay):

it turns out the dataset on the MPI is a different one but the same people are behind it

i've also reached out to the dataset contacts listed on both the Harvard dataverse and the "Max Planck Institute" dataverse to have q.p user data expunged. Unfortunately the copy of the dataset on the MPI dataverse hasn't been deaccessioned.. :/

i doubt they'll do anything but i emailed everyone named in that paper to ask that queer.party users be completely removed from their dataset and paper.

finally, fuck those people from the university of milan.

also i'm temporarily disabling public timeline access until i feel happy about the privacy policy

queer.party's ToS page has been updated to include explicit policies on data collection and transmission. This is a preliminary policy that may be subject to changes as people point things out that I forgot about or worded wrongly. I'm not a lawyer so please be gentle :(

the tl;dr of it is: your data is yours, mastodon doesn't collect anything more than it needs to, any data made available externally to q.p is exclusively for federation purposes.

ugh woke up to this pish about that content warnings paper, I’ll update q.p’s policies on data collection and stuff shortly.

Queer Party!

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
