I've actually been here for a while already, though mostly inactive! The Birdsite Situation prompted me to pop in here again. And I'm terrible at writing introductions, so I usually just say "I do stuff on the internet".

But uh, I do all sorts of activist-y stuff, work on radical FOSS (see cryto.net/~joepie91/manifesto.), write (educational) stuff, am more or less a lonely polyamorous gender blob of indeterminate sexuality who likes both cuddles and kinky things, and I always have 10 times as many projects as I have time for, as is customary with ADHD brain :) Sometimes I even finish some of them!

While I'm an introvert and need plenty of time to myself, I *am* happy to meet like-minded people and spend time with them, and as long as you're not a bigot or apologist, you should feel free to interact with me and/or follow me!

Also, I live in Rosmalen (near Den Bosch) in the Netherlands, and honestly would like to get to know more local folks, and I also have some vague intention to start a queer hackerspace around here if I can find enough interested people. Eventually!

Huh, since when do YouTube's auto captions work in picture-in-picture mode?

Hope they're happy with their 0.01% operational cost savings 🙃

Also keep in mind that probably a good chunk of people using Legacy were early adopters, tech-savvy teenagers who now have some sort of important role at a tech company... I'm not sure Google quite realizes what a massive faux pas this whole thing is

I find it hilarious how Google trying to force Legacy Apps users to upgrade to a paid plan, has resulted mainly in people upgrading to a paid plan *with different companies entirely* and jumping ship from Google anyway

Looking for suggestions still: Are there any print on demand places that aren't evil or like are good (for the ppl that work there, for ppl of the world) actually? I'm interested in any kind of PoD place, whatever it is they can supply.

It's just that I'm not white and I simply can't pretend like supporting horrible companies is fine when it isn't. (Part of why I left Twitter)

Also taknig suggestions for tags that might help people find this post :)

Wo kauft ihr denn so eure #thinkpad ersatz #akku‍s? Könnt ihr Dritthersteller empfehlen die trotzdem qualitative Akkus verbauen? Oder gibt es die nur in schlechter Qualität?

Würde ungern 170€ alleine für den großen (originalen), externen Akku ausgeben… Suche speziell für ein t450s aber auch über generelle Ratschläge und Erfahrungen wäre ich dankbar :boost_ok:

me using BT headphones in speaker-only mode: Haha fuck yeah!!! Yes!!

me using BT headphones in speaker+mic mode: Well this fucking sucks. What the fuck.

The primary task of the police is to protect the State and Capital against the people — you.
The rest is PR-management.

If you only washed half the dishes before having to stop, you can still write "Half the dishes" in your to-do list and check that off. It counts!

i say “thank you” to ai assistants when they do things for me so they keep me around when they take over

i feel like there is also not enough intersectionality when it comes to saying, "this should enrage and mobilize you." black queer people have been enraged and mobilizing for years. disabled, nonblack queer, black women, and many other marginalized people have been enraged and mobilizing for years. where is the line where those who have been doing the work are allowed one moment of grief and rest before doing the work again? this is not a one size fits all type demand.

and if this isnt already enough THE FAMILIES ARE HAVING GOFUNDMES TO PUT THEIR CHILDREN TO REST THEY NEED CROWDFUNDING TO PUT THEIR CHILDREN (WHO THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT PROTECT, WHO THE GOVERNMENT REFUSES TO PROTECT, WHO THE GOVERNMENT WILL ALWAYS ALLOW TO DIE BEFORE THEY LOSE MONEY, AND WILL NOT HELP THESE FAMILIES IN ANY CONCRETE WAY FOR THE REST OF THEIR DAYS) TO REST

like it is unconsciousable that after a school shooting. kids have to fucking go back to school. literally not even twenty four hours later. and all the children from the shooting have not even all been found. and i really cannot do this because they were so close to summer, they were so close to where maybe, for two months, these kids and teachers wouldnt have to do school shooter drills. they were so close.

like how are basketball coaches and players speaking better about this. how is the fucking president like oh how sad we should do something about this. how are we supposed to grieve if there is not enough time between traumas to find air much less take it in. i know people want rage, want action, and im trying to get there but i am so scooped out hopeless and sad in this moment and i need to be in this moment, im sorry.

This won't be news to any of the Dutch folks, but a travel tip for everybody else: if you like fantasy and fairy tales (or just generally good vibes really), then you absolutely *have* to visit this place, even if you don't like thrill rides: youtube.com/watch?v=BzESKugOV4

This is legit one of my favourite places in the world, for reasons that are difficult to put into words :boosts_ok_gay:
