Coming to work and finding it in total blackout is pretty strange

What if privacy law was as strict as copyright law nowadays? You are not allowed to copy any private information about someone until 70 years after their death, even if it was non-commercial, and you can sue the heck (that is: €€€) out of someone if they do.
And then do the reverse to copyright law: copying anything copyrighted is the standard, creators who don't want it are refuted with "Oh, but you don't have something to hide, do you?", and Big Tech and Government actively help people to copy work from creators and to spread it further.

Sur cette image, vous voyez des camions sur un train.

Sur cette image, on peut voir une volonté politique, celle d’un pays, la Suisse, qui oblige les camions à prendre le train.

Comme quoi, quand on veut on peut.

Just signed up to pay @tursiops a bit of money every week for running tooting.ch. Nothing is really free, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are 'free' because they sell your data. @tursiops does not sell your data, so he needs to make money some other way to pay for the service. If everyone on tooting.ch paid him just a tiny bit a week, it wouldn't cost him money to provide this service for us. Make your happy: liberapay.com/Tursiops/

(This is also why I also pay for Wikipedia.)

Free, subsidized world-wide shipping for products from China is a price we just can't afford to pay.

On the contrary, we're overpaying for this by further destroying our environment and economies.

Mind you: I'm not trying to bash Chinese products here. But please, let's not pretend shipping something worth $5 across the entire globe is something you'll get for free.

Salut bienvenu au club! Amuse toi bien !

Dear everyone using tooting.ch, it's this time of year again where the bill is due for the hosting cost for the year, and if I'm writing this message it means that we don't have enough money to cover it all. At the moment we are about 200$ short, in the spirit of transparency here are the raw numbers: price for a year is 752.8 CHF we currently have 571.6 CHF in the association bank account
This money powers the server that not only hosts diasporing.ch but also tooting.ch and a few other projects

Yay! Let's celebrate the 100th user on tooting.ch ! :blobhappy:
