Hey floss.social :) My name is Chris, and I am a first year college student, as well as a free software and privacy advocate.
I love contributing to projects, my favourites being Fracal, a GTK client for Matrix chat, and Godot. I have a (small, for now) blog at https://brainblasted.gitlab.io.

Some dumb dude I grew up with has been trying to get in contact with me/messaging chicks I haven't talked to since high school/a decade because of BAD BLOOD because he wants to know if my family's bakery is open/hoping to get free shit.
I was very curt in my reply to said high school girl. Bakery is closed. I no longer use social media. Goodbye!
People only talk to me when they want something and I'm not that pushover any more.

It appears that I have no recurse but to get the extension statically linked into Odysseus. But so far I've been failing at that.
Anyone has Meson experience?

I have my Pleroma instance set up, but logins don't persist (I am logged out after refreshing), I can't change things like my user avatar, and I cannot login with OAuth. I don't think I did anything wrong because I followed directions, but I have no clue why it is so broken :(
