Request for input from blind programmers 

Saw a tweet saying that tabs work better than spaces when you're using a braille display

Seems logical, but this information doesn't seem to be coming from a blind person, so I thought I'd check

Which form of #Python indentation is more accessible to you?

(sighted people: don't vote, be patient)

@sharkNserg Taurs live in the head

This is especially true if one of your headmates is a Taur

Very in-depth social engineering Discord scam, PLEASE BOOST FOR VISIBILITY :boost_requested: 

I've never seen a Discord scam like this, and I almost fell for it. A hacked account will DM you with "bro idk if you're being impersonated or what but they exposed your dms in [INSERT SERVER HERE] with that girl and like what the fuck?? im sorry but i dont associate with those types of people so if you cant explain it then i will be blocking you." and immediately block you.

Upon joining the server, it'll ask you to verify with Wick bot, but it's a fake Wick bot that asks you to scan your Discord mobile app for QR code verification.

@sharkNserg sometimes you just gotta be big

and sometimes a big taur

Hey I found an open source menstrual cycle tracking app called Drip that doesn't call home to anyone and encrypts your data on your device. It's gender inclusive and it has a prebuilt version Android that you can get either on F-Droid or on their site here: bloodyhealth.gitlab.io

They have an iOS version but it's not pre compiled. I'll be working on that today so you can get loaded onto your Apple devices, along with the instructions to install it on said Apple device.

Please boost so others can see this!

Once you find out what the recent US Supreme Court Decisions are, it is _mandatory_ that you use appropriate Content Warnings when discussing them on bsd.network.

I'm sure everyone would appreciate if you use them on other instances as well.

Now that prices are coming down these are the GPUs to avoid at all costs, new or used:

RX 6400
RX 6500 XT
RTX 3050
GTX 1650 (The 1650 Super is okay, the 1650 Ti is not as good as the Super.)

Entry level used cards to consider:

RTX 2060 6GB
RX 5600 XT

it's not always possible to fix all sources of burnout but you need to identify them and you need to stop hurting yourself over them. i cannot stress this enough: it's a debuff, not a failing. it's not *you*, it's a thing that is *happening* to you.

I know people who up until recently didn't know rosy maple moths actually existed

It must be sad to not know these bright bundles of fluff are out there

homophobia, important 

Please keep an eye out for people trying to brand monkeypox as a "gay disease", explicit or otherwise, and push back hard and early!

I've already started seeing the same kind of "the damn gays fucking everywhere" rhetoric that also popped up during the first years of the AIDS epidemic in the US. That rhetoric was directly responsible for (tens of?) thousands of deaths.

We absolutely *cannot* afford to let homophobes gain control over the public narrative around monkeypox, and let them use it to once again kill queer folks by denying them crucially important healthcare. :boosts_ok_gay:

You can rotate a lootbug in your mind all you want and DRG management can't stop you

Treating burnout as an individual failure rather than a symptom of society-wide malfunction under late-stage capitalism and a rising tide of fascism is simply another attempt to vampirise us, goddammit.

Small server part of the pixie.town infrastructure. Registration is approval-based, and will probably only accept people I know elsewhere or with good motivation.
