Okay, #signsandcodes, we're upgraded to Mastodon 2.9.4 and I'm going to call it a night on that note, since going to 3.0 takes more time to do.
Okay, #signsandcodes, our upgrade to 2.8.3 seems to have gone over without anything catching fire. I'm going to bring everything down one more time to move us into the 2.9 versions before calling it a night.
Heya there, #signsandcodes friends! I'm going to take a shot at some upgrades, so you're likely to see a little instability for the next short while. I'll let everyone know when order has been restored.
uspol +, polyamory
The city council of Somerville, MA just voted unanimously to remove the limit of two people in a domestic partnership, effectively providing legal recognition to polyamorous relationships.
uspol, sportsball, race
Sometimes the leaders of sports teams do the right thing, like publicly telling a racist politican to fuck off and threatening to leave his city if that keeps up. It could be more, yes, but it's more than many have done.
@sarberry, server business is generally on the #signsandcodes hashtag, and aside from our own crowd, who are now mostly on here, you will likely find some amusing people and content to follow if you check out our Federated Timeline.
Alan Turing bday, suicide mention
Alan Turing was born today
He was gay and neurodivergent, famous for 'Turing machine,' a model for modern/general purpose computers
he was also chemically castrated by his government for being gay (instead of prison time), and later committed suicide at 41
Rest in Power, Alan
The morning brings some new faces to #signsandcodes: @AccioMjolnir, Weimar-era historian and total ball of delight; @sciencensorcery, whose YouTube videos on gender helped me come out as non-binary; and @cydonia, who might want to check out @vickysteeves for some library science feeling. All these folks are close, long-term friends of me and yesterday's invitees.
To the newcomers, server business is on the #signsandcodes hashtag and advice for finding people was posted on some recent invites!
So @Stronae it's feels like it's been forever. What's your professional life like these days?
