For folks running Gitea servers: the most recent release fixes a pretty serious vulnerability. Make sure your instance is up to date!

@annika With monthly subscriptions if you cancel you still have prime until then end of your subscription period. They make it seem like cancelling will end your benefits early, but it doesn't. I haven't tried it with annual subscriptions, but I bet it works the same way.

I periodically sign up for a month, cancelling it immediately so it doesn't auto-renew.

I don't think it's accurate to say that reCAPTCHA doesn't help with AI research.

@Gargron I always expect search to be at the top of "Getting Started" on mobile.

My favorite Crater Lake shot from earlier this summer.
