“Smart Kids Eventually Grow Up” by Valerie Valdes. http://candleinsunshine.com/musings/smart-kids-eventually-grow-up/
A bit about how we became reliant on praise as children which eventually sabotaged us. I’m not sure I’m 100% with this but I think there is good to be found here.
Thank you @zigg
I'm a cisgender white male.
But I'm not a coder, not in the classical sense of the term
So I feel the entitlement of the white male coder vividly that this article describes
I published a new post of mine in my brand new personal static indie blog
The title is: "Self publishing of scientific datasets"
Here it is
There's this boy on youtube, he has a lot of videos about tech
Wordpress, nodejs, Sass...
and GTK mainly form a ElementaryOS installation
he has a few tutorials about how to start a GTK based project with Vala
He seems to be Italian and living in London
I can't remember the name of his youtube channel
I'd be grateful for any reminder
Yes, I know it's full of liberal furries here, please stick to my question 🙃
purely by chance, I found this article about how to explore the modules of #Guile in Guile
It's a good starting point for improving your average Guile interactive session and for seeing where to start from, should you want to improve the current situation (there's tons of room for improvement)
money, hard times, request Show more
reminder that im very, very poor rn (to the point of not eating healthily, im probably lowkey malnourishing myself) and that you can always give me money
im a navy vet who got tricked out of my benefits, im constantly submitting job applications and finding nothing, and i really wish i could afford to just treat myself once in a while
there's a good chance i cant withdraw my retirement savings from my navy time fast enough for next month rent, in which case ill probably have to crowdfund or well, i dont really know what the alternative is
please help me survive
im trying so hard, and hope is scarce to find.
anything helps including boosts, thanks for reading
trans allyship suggestion for cis people Show more
if you’re cis and comfortable with dealing with government and/or medical institutions, consider accompanying your trans friends there.
if your trans friend tells you they’re nervous about changing their government ID, offer to go with them.
likewise if your trans friend is nervous about eg. filling their hrt prescription.
a fair bit of the bs we trans people have to deal with can often be mitigated when it’s clear that we have a cis friend with us.
Any dimwit can understand computers. Many do.
