If you're ever wondering how to console me when antisemitism has me down, talk to your coworkers about forming a union, talk to your neighbors about how you'd have there back during the revolution, sticker your neighborhood with anticapitalist and antifascist propaganda. Build the World to Come with me.

In a way, when we do Gd's work in the form of justice and kindness, we are embodying the Messiah and building the World to Come.
Franz Kafka put it like this, "The messiah will come only when he is no longer necessary; he will come only on the day after his arrival."

The last words we sing in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur are "Next Year in Jerusalem". It's a prayer for the coming of the Moshiach. It's said that the messiah will come because of our righteous actions, through us repairing the world with justice and kindness.

@z @judeswae I'm using Toot! personally, it's a mature, well-designed and fairly good client. I used to use Amaroq before, but it's been put on hiatus as far as I know.

There's also Mast, for which there's a successor being developed right now.

We have silenced the server pawoo.net for consistent and repeated spam/bot issues coming from their instance. You can still follow and see content from them if you are already engaged, but you won't be able to do so going forward.

We'll revisit this decision should they get a hold on their user base.

The recent Chef-ICE story hits home. A year ago DHS wrote to me, interested in purchasing Sidekiq Enterprise.

I declined; Chef's response is amoral BS.
