I see that there are now more Spanish speaking members of QOTO. is adding more restrictions. I can't save a URL without JavaScript anymore...

I really want to try FreeBSD sometime. I would still be using Gentoo if I could get NodeJS and a couple other programs on it.

Compiling PHP on Void Linux again. Can't they make it easier to use SSL and Mysqli?
