Instead of doing anything to recover from my day of work I spent the evening writing angry emails to my school board about the plans to re open schools in preson in 2 weeks.

I sent a nicer email to the principal asking if there was any remote option available.

I really wish I lived in a world that valued people over "the economy"

We need blockpartyapp.com/ for the #fediverse or just open social Web. So much weight could be taken off the shoulders of small communities.

The employees have asked you not play them at all tomorrow as a message to the company.

Digital Strike and all that.

HELP! I need to know which GUI frameworks support accessibility and which ones don't, and to what degree each. Is there some kind of nice list or something? What are the best resources on accessibility in Free Software?

Canadian law doesn't allow pharmaceuticals to be sold for "whatever the traffic will bear". In the USA, we're told it's a good thing, because all that money stimulates research & development. In fact, many promising drugs are left by the wayside because they don't show enough profit potential, while the rakeoff goes to pay the investors Martin Shkreli ripped off in his previous get-rich-quick scheme.

Insulin was first used as medicine in 1922. US patents last for about 20 years. How the fuck is Insulin still expensive? Is it the process on making it that's hard? I really don't understand why it's not cheap or free.

Devs who are hosting their projects on #GitHub should allow people to report issues with an alternative way (by email for example).

Because I can't contribute to project I like because I don't want to create an account on a fucking #Microsoft #proprietary service. I already have an account on @codeberg and it is fine for me. And I think other people have the same problem.

@robby @tagomago Ah, I missed the space between them! Too bad there isn't any code-highlighting (with a monospace font) on masto.

So the final command can look like this:

maim -s | tesseract - - | xsel -bi

Time is money, or so the maxim goes. To have time is therefore to be rich. But time is only money if Capital values your time. There are many people whose time Capital values at being close to zero. Or actually zero.

There are many people whose time spent labouring does not appear in the GDP figures.

Conservatives in the UK use this idea frequently to imply the affluence of those who they actually impoverish. It has been a rhetorical tactic of theirs for decades.
