andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc. shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log:

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

Today, the Grand Chamber of the @ECHR_CEDH, Europe’s highest human rights court, confirms UK surveillance regime was unlawful.

In 2013, after @Snowden's revelations, we brought the UK government to court together with many other NGOs.

More on the judgment soon...

I understand that global search and indexing is intentionally kept in check for multiple reasons. Are there any (less comfortable) ways, like external search or whatever to discover stuff outside the local server or the people directly connected? #mastodon

All Hoopy Froods are compelled to carry a towel on their person for the entire day.

In loving memory of the Revered Inventor of the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster,

The same man who discovered the exact reason why nothing on Earth makes sense,

And proved beyond doubt that the world is insane,

And who revealed the Answer to the Ultimate Question, of Life, the Universe, and Everything!

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

This was delicious, light and refreshing lager. Perfect with spicy foods. 🍻
