So don't talk to me about proof-of-work vs proof-of-space vs proof-of-bandwidth vs proof-of-stake. It's not what this is about. Energy waste just makes something that is already bad even worse. I don't see any merit in making ponzi schemes more eco-friendly.

Nice little illustration of what it means to say “patriarchy is structural” in this Twitter thread. (It’s about getting a drunk teenage girl home safely. No threats; nothing bad happens):

ESCORPIO: No querrás que nadie sepa un secreto tuyo que puede darte mucha confianza si se conoce públicamente, ya que habría comentarios a tu alrededor. No descansas lo suficiente porque quieres mandar todo a tomar por saco y no pararás hasta conseguirlo. Una noticia inesperada podría sembrar el caos en tu vida.

When you receive a commission asking: 'Please could you paint a Friday night at pub kicking out time, with all the fights, kebabs, and throwing up in gutters, but in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry?'

A fine example of what I can only describe as avant-Romanesque by Jim'll Paint It.

GEMINIS: Tal vez te convendría dejar de explicarle a una persona que no conoces de nada que los reyes magos son los padres. Tu mente estará hoy muy inspirada para disfrutar de los juegos de la seducción. Sé consciente y aprovéchalo. Hoy puedes centrarte un poquito perfectamente, sin sentirte mal por ello.

First time using a #sewing machine today - and first time troubleshooting one!
It wasn't feeding the fabric through. It hadn't been used for a while so the supporting arm of the feed dog was stuck and the feed dog couldn't reach its lowest position.
Lots of fun opening it, figuring things out, and finally getting to fix my bag and give it a few more years of life.

Nils, the author of programs like Patroneo and Agordejo has created a list of "worry-free" FOSS sampled instruments. The idea is to list resources granting maximum artist freedom and being 100% free from any possible legal trouble.

Language learning, anxiety when beginning to speak 

How does one manage to push themselves to start trying to speak a language they're learning? I know I won't improve just by writing, reading and listening. I know it won't work, and it doesn't. I love languages, and giving up is not something I want to do. But it took me five minutes to mentally prepare to start a practice call request on Lingbe, and the moment I didn't have the word I needed, my mind went "not responding" for a few seconds and taskkilled itself. The worst part about it is that, while it would help me to have a translator ready, I start pacing the moment the call connects and I cannot stay next to my computer.

my grandma still rocks a 100+ year old sewing machine, and not only it’s beautifully Victorian/Art Nouveau and well preserved, she reminded me she had to make all of her home’s curtains with it

girls had to be hackers way before it was cool

Después de mantener el una semana en un cajón por falta de tiempo he podido leer un poco más y parece que +Phosh es una experiencia bastante superior a Manjaro+Plasma. Acabo de flashear Mobian en el aparatejo este y esto es otro cosa. A partir de ya lo voy a llevar como teléfono principal y os iré contando (por si le interesa a alguien).
