#Parler may be saved by a cash injection (and server services) from Domain registrar #Epik, ref CEO Rob Monster (that's really his name)

Epik is described as "a safe haven for the extreme right",.
Epik saved #Gab (the Original Nazi Twitter) and #DailyStormer (The Nazi Web Site of choice).
Epik has a history of not responding to reports of illegal activity on the websites they register, including criminal activity, selling of drugs and weapons, trading of nazi memorabilia, and others.

It's simply 'neither their problem nor their concern".
CEO Rob Monster is an antisemitic and white nationalist conspiracy theorist.

His views are "indistinguishable from those of Neo-Nazis".

He makes $ Millions off those with extremist views.
More when I get it.
Having said that, #Epik still use various Google Services, so there's your quick counter. Which would affect All of #Epik's users.

#Epik's other services are at least partially hosted by an as yet unnamed company HERE IN THE UK. If anyone knows who, let me know.

Tech : With many server stacks and LamP set-ups still being run on Ubuntu Server 16.04, you'll be aware that Support has moved from LTS to ESM.

Should you migrate ? Most would say yes, BUT : Assess the risks and make a smart business decision.

ubuntu.com/blog/ubuntu-16… Image
There are Migration-Hawks in the Industry who would evangelise over 'Upgrade Being The Path To Heaven'

Ain't neccessarily so.

Evaluate how migration impacts your existing workloads & APIs as your configs might depend on versions of the apps/libs that shipped with 16.04. Image
In short : In the personal desktop world, the 'latest' is always nice to have.

In business, 'If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It' should be plastered on every IT Support Office Wall.

My advice : Leave it alone. Migrate in 2 years time. Your clients will love you for it. Image

Biden's Payback Time For The Right Wing Extremist

[Caveat : This is humour, people.]

When Biden takes office, his first few days should be taken up with some key policies :
1. Free 200 square foot Planned Parenthood Clinics on every street with free bottomless coffee ;

2. Repaint Air Force One in rainbow stripes, fly it over Alabama airdropping abortion pills ;
3. Tax the Televangelist 'Churches' until their leaders have to sell both their private jets ;

4. Buy up McDonalds and make them exclusively serve food to the low-waged and homeless, for free ;

Short Thread :

If you use 'Free Speech' as a cover for Incitement of Hated and Violence, you're not concerned at all about 'Free Speech'.

Just *your* Speech. Image
If you claim 'Freedom of Expression' yet incited death threats to Colin Kaepernick who simply knelt down, you're not concerned at all about 'Freedom of expression'

Just *your* Freedom of Expression. Image
If you demand reinstatement of a Twitter account after demanding #BLM accounts were banned, you're not concerned about Free Speech.

Just that ensuring your voice is louder. Image

RUNNING SCARED - Pro-#Trump News Organisations are FRANTICALLY rowing back on 'Fraud' Claims after being threatened with multiple lawsuits by Voting Machine companies #Smartmatic and #Dominion.

One #NewsMax host, John Tabacco, embarrassingly had to read out a statement saying :

“There are several facts our viewers and readers should be aware,”

... before debunking a long list of conspiracy theories, mostly from himself.
#Fox Business host and full-time tinfoil hat wearer Lou Dobbs had to do the same thing, through gritted teeth ...

The most ridiculous article ever on #Cycling in #London appeared in the increasingly absurd Tory Weekly, The @spectator ... by Paul Burke. (@paulburkeradio) - an advertising copywriter.

And it's just so laughable it deserves a thread to debunk it's idiocy. Image
@spectator @paulburkeradio "Of course cycling is inherently right-wing"

He's not even trying to be ironic. He means it.

The 'Right Wing' can claim to ownership of many activities .. cycling is not one of them.

I have no data either way but my experience is that cyclists tend to be centre or left-ish. Image
@spectator @paulburkeradio Cyclists apparently "terrorise motorists with violently bright and flashing lights .."

Not ever seen this. Ever..

Perhaps he means legally safe, approved and recommended lighting, ideal for catching the attention distracted car drivers on their phones .... Image
