Indian women form '620km human chain' for equality

Am in awe of these women. That's solidarity folks!

"You've been chosen," the spirit said.
"Save the world, make it kinder, cleaner, safer."
"We chose everyone."

Wishing everyone on Masto a happy 2019.

Let's be the post-capitalist solarpunk society that we want to see.

I just got a calendar reminder that I set months ago. It was about a bit of boring paperwork, but the explanatory notes were so clear and helpful, I feel as if my past self is actively looking after present-me. I hope that doesn't sound pretentious, because it genuinely cheered me up so much.

There are many evangelists for open source but not that many for software freedom. We're now in a time where the software freedom issues are really becoming obvious to the average person although they may not be consciously aware of them and may just think that their software is always bad and trying to trick them in one way or another or is doing things they don't want or havn't consented to.

We went from 7hrs 29 mins of light a day on 21st and 22nd December, to 7hrs 30m of light a day, today, 23rd December.

The days are getting longer again my friends - Wooooo!

My GP told me today there's some stuff that's like ibuprofen but better, but she can't prescribe it because there's a global shortage that won't end until February.

I never thought there was any crossover between "stuff GPs say" and "stuff stoned guys at parties say" but I guess imaginary-sounding medication is the sweet spot.

Happy Solstice everyone!

It might be the depths of winter, but these hardy little Rosemary and Hellebore’s don’t care, and remind us that the sun rays still bring life.

Special thanks to everyone on Sunbeam.City for making me feel so welcome and part of a wonderful #Solarpunk community. You’re all ACE!
Love Gwenfar xx

So I still use Facebook 'cause I'm an immigrant and have to because family - but if you're in the same situation, there's one way to make it less shit.

A major shit thing about FB is that nobody talks on it anymore, they just post angry links about their politics and get anxiety who hits the frowny or the heart. YOU CAN TURN THAT WHOLE EMOTIONALLY-ABUSIVE SURVEILLANCE ECOSYSTEM OFF. You can go back to FB just being a fun way to keep in touch with distant friends and family. Here's how...

My house sale has completed! Here's to a new chapter. I think I'm ready to turn the page.

Efficiency is nice and all but have you lived in a culture with a surplus of wealth, spread around well?

Fuck efficiency when there's humans involved. It's precarity by another name.

Asked Yorkshire Water for a final meter reading, found out my meter is full of concrete. Probably from the pavement resurfacing work in the summer. They presumably had no intention of telling me this until I rang up needing a reading. Now they're trying to work out what to do.

Yesterday I exchanged contracts on my house sale and today I am hoping that completion goes ahead as planned. Everybody, cross your fingers for me!
