Crowdfunding: My friend Sunyata, a Black disabled queer femme from NYC, is stuck living in a mold-infested apartment while trying to attend Bard Microcollege during a pandemic.
They have an opportunity to get a new apartment, with an initial payment of $875.
Please help them get an apartment that isn’t actively dangerous to their health!
My younger brother just gave me a 5th Gen Kindle Fire that he just replaced. I've been looking all over the internet for resources that could help me install Linux on it but the internet is failing me tonight.
Does anybody here have experience or links I can click that relate to installing Linux on the device? If so, please fire a reply my way.
help a trans woman move so she can be with her boyfriend and people that care about her, boosts very appreciated
my friend jak has had her living situation very abruptly upheaved, she had to make an 11 hour drive back to her home state last night
while she has someone to stay with for now it's not ideal bc she's worried about bumping into her family while there
she's started a gofundme to help her save up so she can move to tennessee to be closer to me and my brother, so at least if anything happens again she may be able to stay with us where we can make sure she's safe and taken care of
if you've read this far thank you so much for caring, even if you're unable to donate boosting this post would mean the world to me bc having her closer to us would take so much stress and worry off of our shoulders
“I’ll never forget my programming teacher who was like a senior dev at IBM and decided he was done writing missile guidance software.
When he was telling us this he said "I just woke up one morning and it struck me that i was a murderer. So I quit."”
gofundme - local black activist doxxed, needs $$$
Keren's Family and Home Support Fund
Some racist Shithead targeted this badass local black activist for being anti-racist on Facebook I guess?? She needs funds to move ASAP! This is a racist ass town 😠 😠 😠
drug addiction, prison system, moral dilemmas
It depresses me that once you put things like the drug addiction, medical help rather than criminal incarnation, into an economic point of view rather than a moral point of view more people are open to it. #warondrugs
Just in case anyone thought that the youtube-dl thing and the Twitch thing was just the RIAA targeting two large platforms, it's apparently time for the RIAA lawyers to show that they're not sitting on their hands:
Two incredible scientists and their universe expanding work! ❤️💪#WomenInSTEM
Since @lrhodes just recently suggested that there should be a feature to hide inaccessible posts, and @gemlog reminded me today that folks might not even realize their names and toots might be hard for some people to read unless they are told, I guess it is my duty now to write another round of educational posts.
Hmm, this isn't really my area of expertise ... maybe I should just go find some old one and reboost?
Nah, let's do this.
In this thread, I'll list a couple suggestions for #Accessibility adjustments you can do to help out people who are #Blind, #VisuallyImpaired, or those who for other reasons use a #ScreenReader. Boosts appreciated!
surgery, trans, open to advice
So my insurance approved top surgery, I called and texted the surgeon to try to set up an appointment, and they're going to get back to me.
Anybody else who's had top surgery have any advice? This isn't my only resource for information and there are people who are helping me, but it would be good to hear from others.
