I was looking for PDFs of readings for the coming semester. I had found some, but there were several that I was having problems finding.
I asked some friends if they had copies. One of them responded saying, "No but I'm very good at googling things." Shortly after, she comes back with links to most of them. Needless to say, I was really thankful.
She keeps insisting that it's a useless skill, but I've found that knowing how to look for things in databases has proven useful time and time again.

GDPR question: what do I do to ensure compliance on a site where users can upload small bits of arbitrary data, some of which is likely to include personal data, but that doesn't explicitly solicit any identifiable info? There will be no user accounts or any way of associating information with a particular user other than what the user might include in what they post.
Can I just provide an email address that can be used to reach me, and ask users to get in touch if they want something deleted?
A man is at a friend's funeral. After the proceedings, he approaches the widow and asks if she minds if he says a word. "No, of course not," she replies. So he grabs a glass and taps a spoon against it to get everyone's attention, and when the muttering dies down, he clears his throat and speaks: "Plethora." He puts the glass back down and everyone continues their conversations. The widow turns to him, with a tear in her eye. "Thank you," she says. Show more
"It means a lot."
Hey Fediverse -- I need a logo designed & I've got cash (USD or EUR)!
I need it simple -- so it can be printed on stickers (it's primary function, tbh) economically -- but also (hopefully) eye-catch-y because the target audience already has a tortuous number of stickers on their laptop.
Corollary -- what small run (less than 500), probably die-cut required, sticker print shop should I be supporting (US or EU) instead of Sticker Mule?
boosts very much welcomed.

Making web capable of being an application platform was a mistake.
Applications are a mistake.
Look at email. There's a common protocol, with multiple client and server implementations, different on each OS, designed with that OS in mind.
Compare that with Discord, which actively hunts down any 3rd party clients.
The first rule of deep space is that you always help those in immediate need.
In this day and age, the number of calls for immediate assistance has gone down, as technology becomes more reliable and people are optimized to live without air. But still, the rule remains. No spacer would break it, and risk total, absolute censure.
Thus, when the first well-stocked Earth passenger liner passed by a disabled mining vessel, you can imagine the reaction from the Asteroid Belt.

more Marxist-Leninist noise about how US military veterans shouldn't be allowed to join socialist orgs, because of the risk of "infiltration"
what a grave misunderstanding of how infiltration works, first of all
secondly, the experience young, impressionable people have after being recruited on pretense is often what changes their view of imperialism, government, and military action
you're operating at a deficit of understanding if you don't include ppl who've seen the inside
@Gargron are we going to get the ability to mute/hide individual toots without muting the user entirely? I just ran into a situation where I’d like to do that.
I guess I'm kinda uncomfortable with the fact that while most humans go through personal development and changing opinions over the course of their lives, with the internet never fogetting anything, you can lose your job now for things you said before regardless of whether you still believe in them.
I'm "kechpaja" pretty much anywhere you see that username.
