Just saw a book on using mercurial on my bookshelf. This will be really useful if I ever get pulled into an alternate dimension where people use mercurial!

I saw someone online describe mRNA vaccines as telling your body to make a new type of guy to get really mad about and now I can't stop thinking about it

Anyway, it takes a LONG time to move 1.1TB over a single usb3 bus.

I was kinda expecting it to be faster

So, I have a tiny little raspberry pi media server I tinker on. I put a disk on it that I called "booty" 'cuz yarrr pirate!

So when I added a second disk today the name for it was obvious.


Because I'm still 12 aparrently

I wish life was more like lo-fi hip hop beats music to study/relax to

Wow. Those cowards paid the ransom. Well, looks like there are going to be a whole bunch more attacks like this.

Political (Ableism and Leftist Spaces) 

The revolution and the world built afterwards NEEDS to be Disabled friendly and Neurodivergent friendly, and while we've luckily managed to avoid seeing anything on Mastodon that's directly ableist on the left, we can't say the same for most leftist spaces, and this needs to change.

It's not just the elimination of slurs like the r-word. It's gaining an understanding of sysmedicalism and how saying plurals can only be formed from trauma, ironically, causes trauma for non-trauma systems.

It's learning how to make your environment more accessible wheelchair-users but it's also learning how to balance conflicting access needs for Autistic people and people with sensory processing disorder. It's learning how compliance-based torture like Applied Behavioral Analysis clothes itself as "therapy" and sells itself to the general public, and stopping that in It's tracks.

It's communities trying to figure out and learn how we're going to handle medications people need after our current system collapses. It's developing a deep understanding that social workers, psychological, and psychiatry units and practices are NOT a viable alternative to the cops — that they often perpetuate the same bigotry as cops, and work in tandem with them. It's communities finding a solution to that so we don't have to worry about weather someone will be killed via institutionalization.

We, despite having hope, don't see anyone talking about these things, besides other Disabled and Neurodivergent people, and that really needs to change.

(Feel free to add to this — boosts welcome as well, we want as many people to see this as possible.)

Preppers, but they invest in building strong ad-hoc mutual aid networks instead of bunkers and guns.

Maybe the mutual aid networks operate bunkers and community weapons caches if that's like your aesthetic or whatever idk you do you

Hey! You should show the world what you're working on. They'll love it.

BASICODE 2 was used in the early 1980s to transmit programs for a dozen brands of home computer over the radio. I've found a copy, scanned the manual, digitised the tape, and written a demodulator to convert the programs to text files.

The no drinking rule is a bit of a bummer, since I'm really hecking thirsty right now, but that's a small concession. I'll remember to properly hydrate before my return trip.

NJT is significantly better than MTA in this regard. They have a strict "wear a mask or you can fucking walk" policy that the conductor announced over the loudspeaker.

I feel better about this train.

Going on my first train trip post pandemic and I hate it. Too many shitty selfish people not wearing masks. Thanks covid; you fucking ruined trains for me.

Just learned that the "this is fine" dog creator is the same guy as the "dickbutt" creator.
