Such lovely people here in #Kathmandu. A guy I met today lost everything he owned in the 2015 earthquake, was forced with his family to live in the slums. Still he was such a happy man, always laughing. He showed us around the temples, his art school, even invited us into his home to meet his wife and four kids and made us a lovely dinner. I was blown away by his kindness.
To be governed is to be watched over, inspected, spied on, directed, legislated at, regulated, docketed, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, assessed, weighed, censored, ordered about, by men who have neither the right, nor the knowledge, nor the virtue.

Just a reminder: #Google is a corporation that only does things that benefit Google.
I stopped playing video & computer games around 15 years of age, I think #VideoGameAddiction is a big issue. Had more to do with not having a console or good PC than anything else.
I know too many people who have wasted so much of their time smoking a bong and playng Xbox all day.
I'm not anti-videogames, I just think many people get too drawn into them.
I remain cautious of them. I never bought a console because I knew I would be drawn into it. Same reason I never made a facebook account.
Anyone have an experience of attending a #Coderetreat ? I'm thinking of joining the Global Day of Coderetreat this Saturday, but it's quite a long trip so love to hear some feedback.
I purchased 4 of these mastodon stickers:
I'll have 3 in my bag if you ever see me and want one :) https://social.coop/media/Y4J8grSyki1ndXXyLiU
Whoa mastodon runs a lot better on the new #Firefox here, where on the old one there was a lot of flashing and stuttering when typing a message.
Looking for a new #VPS hoster. I think €24 at Transip is to much for 2core/4RAM/150ssd.
- the same specs or more what I have now
- Debian of course
- Not US or any other country where it's easy for governments to look into my VPS (Netherlands is now good, but after the new surveillance law not)
- Not a large company, actually rather not a company at all. But if that's not possible a small hipster company.
