#Mastodon #Firefox #Addon: Simplified Federation.

Simplifies following or interacting with other users on remote Mastodon instances in the Fediverse. It skips the "Enter your Mastodon handle" popup and takes you to your own "home" instance, without entering your Mastodon handle on remote instances.

- Good design (similar to #Signal)

Hey infosec people: do me a favor and assume the "use case" for anyone you don't know personally includes facing poverty, discrimination, state-sponsored oppression, corporate surveillance, domestic abuse and harassment while using your product.

This tree is named Hyperion. Standing at a height of 115.61 metres, it is Earth's tallest known living tree.

Hyperion is a coast redwood (sequoia sempervirens) and it lives somewhere in Redwood National Park in California. The exact location is remote, and is being kept secret to avoid any potential ecological damage or vandalism which too many visitors might bring.

"What does that mean?"
"You're no cyborg."
"I wear glasses!"

"So I'm just a normal human?"
"Hardly anyone is normal. You'll be different some way."
"I hope so."

The emergency maintenance is complete, Social.coop is now running 2.6.4.

Social.coop will be offline for emergency maintenance briefly while we update to 2.6.4. This is to fix the queueing issue in 2.6.2 that has been causing long delays in the feeds.
