Many large instances have been struggling to deal with the big increase in users from Reddit.
Therefor I wanted to setup this server to divide the load. I also really like hosting and managing a server, so I thought it was perfect for me
endlesstalk.org is intended to be a serious long-term instance!
Rules and info can be found in the sidebar.
- Have been built with redundancy and recoverability in mind
- Database and images are backed up every 2 hours, so there is always a fallback.
- Servers for endlesstalk.org are runing in the clould and I strive to get the best mix between stability and pricing.
If you decide to join, let me know of any issues or improvements at issues and improvements
Lastly I would appreciate any donation to cover the server costs. At the moment, its not really needed, but I would appreciate it regardless.
Saw the Scrunch and did a huge double take. How did they get a picture of my cat?
As strange as it may seem, I hate my accent and want to speak like an American because I think it sounds cooler and more like how I want to sound.
I've more or less perfected my version of an American accent on my own, I think.
But whenever I'm with other people who know me, I revert back to my old accent instinctively because that's how they know me to sound like. I'm unsure about how I can subtly transition without them noticing a sudden change, such as through gradual exposure to my accent changing more each time they hear it. That way I could argue that I don't know how it happened and it was a slow progression if they eventually realise it's different, rather than something forced that I started doing one day.
The biggest thing I think is changing the pronunciation of certain words with "a", such as going from "fahst" to "faast" for the word 'fast', or "mahsk" to "maask" for 'mask'. Because it's really one or the other, there's no in-between. I feel like for most other sounds, a gradual transition into more American sounds can be possible, but that one's like, how can I make the plunge and will people notice it straight away and think it's weird?

Also from the official announcement (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2023/11/28/open-extensions-on-firefox-for-android-debut-december-14-but-you-can-get-a-sneak-peek-today/ ):
Starting December 14, 2023, extensions marked as Android compatible on addons.mozilla.org (AMO) will be openly available to Firefox for Android users.
“We’ve been so impressed with developer enthusiasm and preparation,” said Giorgio Natili, Firefox Director of Engineering. “Just a few weeks ago it looked like we might have a couple hundred Android extensions for launch, but now we can safely say AMO will have 400+ new Firefox for Android extensions available on December 14. We couldn’t be more thankful to our developer community for embracing this exciting moment.”
Sen. Ted Cruz has introduced a bill that would limit the use of preferred names by trans people.
The irony, critics point out? The senator, whose legal name is Rafael Edward Cruz, uses a preferred name himself: Ted.
Very cursed, but I also want to try it.
Follow up post on the SP4 ammo and in particular this weird revolver.
Designed in 2001 by Yakovlevich Stechkin at TsKIB SOO an arms manufacturer based in Tula a city, 120 miles South of Moscow, famous for its arms manufacturing.
The pistol was produced after a request from Russia’s security service, the FSB, for a quiet pistol capable of killing an enemy at 50 metres (55 yards).
Like the Unica 6 this gun actually fires from the bottom chamber. This low bore axis design reduces muzzle climb when shooting, allowing faster follow up shots. The tube at the top is a laser sight, this is what that switch & wire on the left side connects to.
The grip is designed to balance the shooter's desire to place their pinky finger on the gun with the need for the butt of the grip to be small, to aid in it's ability as a concealed carry firearm.
Also I believe that's an ambidextrous safety, an odd feature on a revolver.

I believe the show was an attempt to both A. Finish what they started (mainly with the hybrid hypercars) because the end to top gear was just that sudden and B. offer their loyal fanbase a bit of extra content on the side before the trio became too old, fat and brittle to continue doing it.

"Is US on the Verge of 'Catastrophic' UFO Leak? What We Know"
I'm an old lady who saw a flying saucer about 40 years ago. Everything transpiring now in Congress has gotten me pretty excited. I would love to see some kind of disclosure before I die.
