Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.

In #GlitchSoc, public local-only toots (that is, toots that are never rendered outside the originating instance, never presented to non-logged-in users) appear in both the Federated timeline and the Local timeline.

My reasoning to not change that was that the Local timeline has always been a subset of the Federated timeline… like, the Federated timeline is “all public toots known to the instance”.

But this appears to confuse some people, so, should local-only toots appear in the Federated timeline, or only in the Local timeline?

@chosafine I'm not sure if they are compatible or not, but you might also consider swapping out the stock fans for noctua equivalents.

@chosafine probably something by thermal grizzly. You have to be careful though, certain kinds react poorly to certain metals

My favorite line from the Wikipedia article on homosexuality in animals:

“No species has been found in which homosexual behaviour has not been shown to exist, with the exception of species that never have sex at all, such as sea urchins and aphis.”
