I am a walking-talking infohazard and am probably dangerous to your wellbeing. I vacillates between curiosity/playfulness, but even IRL I have trouble with signaling intent.

Subverting the way we model the world can break walls we build to protect ourselves. Breaking my own walls is how I overcome my own fears.

This may enhance triggers in those who have differing fear/disgust responses.

Knowing your emotional limits is not a weakness.

I won't be mad if you unfollow.

Video of my #MCH2022 talk about #LibResilient and an idea for decentralized, community CDNs is online:

> I want a Web where CDNs are unnecessary.
> Where different organizations, different website operators, can help each other out by hosting assets for each others' websites, thus spreading the load across many orgs in solidarity, instead of centralizing it in gatekeepers.

An older fedi thread about just that:

child, wondering where trash goes: well someone must have thought of a good solution for all this

adults: we put it into very large holes and then put dirt on top

child: even the plastic?

adults: especially the plastic

child: oh my god

me, coding in C#: i wont be a real dev until i code in C++

me, coding in C++: i wont be a real dev until i code in C

me, coding in C: i wont be a real dev until i code in assembly

me, coding in assembly: i wont be a real dev until i destroy god & supplant him as creator of all

"Each of these uses of NFTs and other blockchain technologies creates digital ownership based on scarcity and exclusion, which does not align with Minecraft values of creative inclusion and playing together. NFTs are not inclusive of all our community and create a scenario of the haves and the have-nots."

Bruh, you literally bought Minecraft and injected a microtransaction platform that is entirely based on haves-and-have-nots.

Specifically, that blog is running on @write_as, a small paid service I operate, that also directly funds this community.

Since we're having a moment here in the fediverse :fediverse: today, I wanted to help show off what it can do. So besides welcoming newcomers to Writing Exchange, I'd also welcome you to start a free blog on @write_as, too:

Fun fact: when you include photos in your #WriteFreely blog posts, they show up in your posts on #Mastodon and other #fediverse platforms!

Recent example from @flatmountain.

If you're wondering about the status of the project, it hasn't gone anywhere!

We're having a little discussion about it here, if you're at all interested in helping out:

here's a demo and overview of the state of #Linux mainline on the #Pixel3 right now, I haven't tested the modem but mobile data and SMS should work. It'll be in @postmarketOS soon!

"Much of recruitment is now online; the problem is that inaccessible websites and online application systems remain a big barrier for disabled people looking for a job. Over 90% of websites, for example, don’t even meet single-A compliance with the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) set by the World Wide Web consortium (W3C), whereas the legal minimum is AA (a higher standard than single A and lower than top compliance level AAA)."

Idle thought of the day: if you assume that environmental crises, political instability, and authoritarian states are going to become more common over the next couple of decades, how would that change the way you design your websites and apps?

Multiverse ideas are common but often ill-formed since they rarely seriously interrogate the question of "which universes exist?" / Max Tegmark formalized a simple idea that any universe is "real" if it has a complete mathematical description / a consequence of this idea is every computer program is a universe / in other words humans create tiny self-contained universes that we can insert avatars into and move around in, extract sounds and sights from / and we treat this as utterly mundane

a clock that's just two RGB LEDs; one for hours one for seconds. the color is interpreted as the angle that the clock hand would be, but in terms of how far around the color wheel that color exists.

Pregnancy / Row v. Wade adjacent 

Someone made a joke that dogs could be trained to detect when someone was pregnant to police when people cross the boarder.

I found a study suggesting this is possible in mammals, and figured out a plausible method for humans already being able to do it and a study that suggest pregnant women's sent makes men may appreciate cure baby faces more.

Trying to guess at what chemistry is being upregulated when scenting happens.

I haven't audited myself, but it looks good and it's on👍🏻

RT Absolutely! And of course such privacy respecting and protecting alternatives already exist:


Hey I found an open source menstrual cycle tracking app called Drip that doesn't call home to anyone and encrypts your data on your device. It's gender inclusive and it has a prebuilt version Android that you can get either on F-Droid or on their site here:

They have an iOS version but it's not pre compiled. I'll be working on that today so you can get loaded onto your Apple devices, along with the instructions to install it on said Apple device.

Please boost so others can see this!

Spent like 30 hours move by things, the u-haul was full and aside from the extra heavy bed I had done most of it myself.

Today has been a recovery day and I am happy. I have muscle ache from exersize, but no inflammatory response!

Even managed to move smaller things to set up the room today without having much problem.

First full day at new apartment. No desktop computer, so no access to my external brain.

But I am happy. The stress level here is like 90% lower.

GF has liked it too.

Hope I can get my pc soon.
