I'm slowly following people I would normally follow here over at one of my alts.
I probably won't use this much as it's gotten a bit big and unwieldy. feel free to follow me on all or one, depending on your preferences.

The addition of a cw button and incredibly easy-to-use, front-and-centre accessibility options for posts has essentially just proven how many people are committed to consistently and passionately not giving a shit about disabled+neurodivergent people. Yes there are nuances and yes there are things people can't be expected to anticipate, but you're not entitled to your content being seen more than I'm entitled to not be retraumatised by it.
Finally happy with my #Emacs appearance.

This is a long shot, but if anyone here knows how to seek expedited immigration or asylum from Brazil into the EU, that information is urgently needed by friends of mine.
Capsule version: they have credible fear or persecution and harm under Bolsonaro, and any information that can get them out of harms way as they try to flee would be incredibly valuable right now.
Speaking of hotels, there's a strike here in Hawaii against the multi-billion dollar hotel industry that pays starvation-wages, jacks up rents (made me and my kids homeless) and uses bastardizations of my native culture's sacred dances as sexy entertainment for rich people (hula girls, etc). https://www.civilbeat.org/2018/10/hawaii-hotel-workers-fight-is-everyones-fight/

Gave up, using the memoir class. Not impressed, as it makes my page count longer and I need to save paper for exam notes. (I'll try to compress the table of contents into two column) #latex
