A space for your toots and braps. This is mainly a personally-run instance for me & my family, but we are friendly to socialists, anarchists, feminists, LGBTQIA+, the poly/non-monogamous, and general lefty activism. Also welcome: technology, programming, and whatever. Feel free to join! But don't expect 100% uptime. I'll try to alert when downtime might occur, it should be minimal. Alternate interface available at https://halcyon.brap.party ... Pinafore alt interface also coming soon.
