We used to know how to find stuff on the internet without search (back when search sucked). Then, Google came and made search good. The finding-it-for-ourselves muscles atrophied. Now, Google sucks, selling our results to the highest bidder and giving the rest to SEOs. It's time to learn to find the good stuff ourselves again.
If you are pondering on whether to host your own mailserver: please do! I have been running a couple - hosting others as well, and it has been a bliss. Google has the biggest share of MXes - lets break that monopoly and reclaim our inbox
Also, feel free to contact me if you wish for help and/or guidance

It's Comic Con in St. Enoch Centre #Glasgow this weekend. I just got this in an email, sounds interesting:
"We've spared no expense and with the help of St Enoch, we have managed to bring the 1989 Batmobile to the centre which will be placed right outside Boots on the ground Floor." 🤓
We'll be there with some of the #geeksocial contigent from noon

If you haven't done it already, it's a really good idea to put something on your profile, at least in the bio text part
Even a sentence or two is better than blankness, it shows you are a human being!
Many people on here will only accept follows from people with text in their profile, as it is considered a common courtesy.
This applies to all Fediverse platforms. If you're on Mastodon, you can do this through the "Edit profile" or "Edit info" links.
