I'd just like to interject for a moment.

What you’re referring to as , is in fact, Microsoft® GitHub, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, those bastards who still support .

GitHub is not a system of oppression unto itself, but rather another controlled component of a fully oppressive capitalist system made useful by tireless lobbying, shell companies and rotting essential infrastructure comprising a fully oppressive system as envisioned by our glorious leader, AYN RAND.

New !

I'm a homeless hacker whose politics are best described by Anarchism without adjectives.

I make , a real-time system monitor with spiffy visuals and , a webframework with a DIY twist and *without* javascript – both of course free.

My life goal is free and open hardware to automate the production of basic necessities.

I also make and write about things.

I am chronically suicidal; My attachment style is insecure-disordered. 😞🔫

I always have this pattern happen to me:

People say they want to help me, I tell them over and over and over again that what I absolutely need and am sorely lacking is social integration.

Then as soon as my state deteriorates so far that I can't fake being socially functional anymore, I'm almost immediately abandoned; social integration is actively withheld by those people who are socially privileged because they prioritize the social integration of everyone else in the group above mine.

Software was a mistake.
Computers were a mistake.
Technology was a mistake.
Humans were a mistake.

I wish I was a squirrel. 🐿️

Over the last 10 or so years, as well as my perception of it has fundamentally changed.

I used to think that IT *had* problems – nowadays I think it *is* a problem.

Now, I'm seeing it primarily as a means of "soft" subjugation – the way is getting built into everything in a way supporting (capitalist) power structures and IT people by and large not giving a rats ass has become a systemic issue of late capitalism.

neat bodmod / potential body horror? 

Just stumbled onto this on the web, but can't come up with anything relevant with a reverse image search – is this, like, a legit you can get done?

:boost_ok:, homelessness, Raleigh NC, not money asking, just help/advice 

:boost_ok: :boost_ok:

So uhhhhhhhh.

My one girlfriend Viv is still facing homelessness, she's contacted the nearby shelters and mutual aid groups in Raleigh and it turns out the shelters are all full and the income support isn't enough to afford any kind of housing. She's getting kicked out of her current place regardless of money, unfortunately.

Neither of us know what to do, it seems like all the options have been explored. We're both basically just scared shitless at the moment.

If you know of any, like, shelters or anything. Or any form of housing. Or anything we can do. Literally any smidgen or glimmer of hope here would be good.

And either way retoots would be appreciated.

Thanks.

A few days ago, I stumbled onto "The Game Overanalyser" and I really, *really* like his videos, like this one about empathy in game design:

At only 2k views this is *criminally* underrated and more people should know about his stuff!

„[Ein schüler] wurde gestern gegen seinen Willen aus der Englischstunde zu einem Einzelgespräch mit einer Dame vom #Jobcenter #Wuppertal gezwungen. Dustin sagte mehrfach, dass er kein Einzelgespräch machen wolle, aber die Dame vom Jobcenter sagte dann zu ihm, dass er es müsse, da seine Eltern ja Kunden seien und er verpflichtet ist, mitzumachen, sonst gäbe es Sanktionen. Im nachfolgenden Gespräch mit dem Schüler habe eine Jobcenter-Sachbearbeiterin den Sohn aufgefordert, nach dem Schulabschluss umgehend eine Lehre zu beginnen. Dustin will aber lieber sein Abitur machen, um später studieren zu können.“

In last two month of protest in #Belarus 14 000+ people were detained. 400+ criminal cases (amount of people charged still unknown but might be above 1000). Around 100 people are in prison awaiting for trial. This is the biggest wave of repressions in last 50 years.

"Longing for Em. Beautiful, selfish, cruel Em—who she needed desperately, who she relied on. It was everything she’d never wanted."

Not gonna lie, that last sentence definitely made me smirk like an idiot.

Currently reading "The Luminous Dead" by Caitlin Starling, which is basically a sci-fi survival horror *climbing* novel that I'm enjoying quite a bit.

"*This is what the beginning of the end of the world will look like*, he thought to himself before returning to the M.E.’s office to assist in the cataloging of the dead."

Like, maybe slightly cliche overload?

It also makes a total solar eclipse a central plot thing (and *bad omen™* because of course) but then seems to get pretty basic stuff about it wrong?

Like it leading to weird atmospheric shadows, it becoming literally dark as night, it being okay to look at the corona without protective glasses, …

I've begun reading "The Strain" by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, which appeared to be a universally praised piece of zombie literature.

I have to say, it's not written very well…

Feels like reading a movie – like this was a screenplay for a b-movie before and had some syntactical padding added to turn it into a "readable" story.

It's also extremely kitschy with everyone constantly having *ominous foreshadowings* about the impending apocalypse because of *evil omens*…

Oh goddess, a friends comment made me consider running a markov chain over the drumpfs birbsite account as source for an insane AI in my game…

Probably not going to do it… probably.

Just started work on my base humanoid model. I only did one humanoid model before and from scratch, this one, I'm doing by reference and I hope it'll work out.

Also starting to consider my options gore-wise and when this is done I might play around with blenders remesh modifier and see whether dynamic deformation is something I can do…
