@lyse Thank you! I didn’t make the ASCII art of the flag. JGS are (presumably) the initials of the person who did. I found it on this website and tweaked it a bit to add color.

The stars are open to interpretation. If I made the background blue and the colons white, it didn’t look right, so I made the colons blue. Perhaps the stars are invisible, or if the stars are blue, perhaps it’s the 48 star flag in use from 1912 until 1959, when Alaska joined the union. :)

#cwdgedq mckinley > Great conversation with @ocdtrekkie tonight. Some things we talked about: * Goryon being taken off the Google Play Store * The woes of uppercase ls and Iowercase Ls * De-Googling Android * The Google Glass and how it forced you into the walled garden * iOS and privacy * Privacy legislation and the extent to which people know about the spying * Creepy Amazon stores * The new issue of Lab6 (https://lab6.com/3)

@retrocrash We used the meet.mills.io Peer Calls instance, and I didn’t run into any problems. I used Ungoogled Chromium. How was it for you @ocdtrekkie?

@ocdtrekkie I usually take notes during the call, but today I just went back and skimmed my messages after you hung up.

#6bwqvpq prologic > Speaking of which... @mckinley did you ever setup a Salty Addr on your domain yet? 🤔 Can I message you yet? 😅

@prologic No, I haven’t. mckinley.cc points to a web host that wouldn’t let me host a broker. I’ve got a VPS and some other domains, I just haven’t done it.

I couldn’t figure out the client, anyway. I couldn’t see my messages, and when I run salty-chat read I only got one message at a time. I haven’t touched it in a long time, though, so maybe things improved.
