@quokka We live here, in this nightmare almost every day. It isn't as bad as this, but... backup your data. Send it to the cloud. Get a handful of memory sticks.
Print everything out. Copies, versions, stick stuff in github...
Make unlisted Pastes in Pastebin...
Just recalling all the little nooks and crannies that I've used when doing something really important.
My sympathies, that's really all I got. :(
An exciting announcement, solarpunk Show more
I've been keeping quiet about this, but I can finally share!
My friend and I are officially contracted for a book from the West Virginia University Press's series Salvaging the Anthropocene. Our book, Almanac for the Anthropocene: A Compendium of Solarpunk Futures, will focus primarily on collecting practical, substantive applications of #solarpunk thought. And we are currently accepting submissions/pitches!

why we tell people we won't use Windows: we know Linux now and we don't like Windows very much, so using it would be pointless
why we actually won't use Windows: unlike any recent version of Windows, we actually feel safe when we use our Linux machines. we feel like we have our own space where we can let our guard down and not worry about the machine turning on us.
Windows has never offered this user experience to us, and probably never will.
tech, sarcasm Show more
remember kids: in unix we break things into reusable parts so they can be composed unless one of those parts is a calendar in which case it must be attached to a mail client or the kingdom will fall
Hey #darktable users : since september 2018, I have added 14050 lines of code in darktable's core, being the 2nd most productive dev for 2018/2019, and father of filmic, color balance v2 and the new UI design, in addition of providing doc, tutos, advice and various bugfixes. I'm working full time on more cool projects (modules and R&D), but I'm still paid way below minimal wage. If you can spare a few €, you can help me to help you long-term : https://liberapay.com/aurelienpierre/
The ‘green new deal’ is to climate activism what ‘same sex marriage’ was to the LGBT movement.
It’s the most limited, most reformist goal available, that’s pushed by NGOs and - yes - green corporate funding, to co-opt the energy and potential of a movement that could be revolutionary.
We can’t achieve queer liberation within the state. We can’t save the planet within capitalism. The idea that we’ll get to the revolution if we just put all our energy behind a reformist goal first is misguided.
Airbnb is likely going to force me out of where I live Show more
Roommate asked for some help cleaning the downstairs area. So ofc I helped because I don’t really have a choice if I’m being honest. He started talking about renting the third available room for Airbnb and then asked if I would be willing to switch the queen mattress I’ve been sleeping on with the twin mattress that’s in the other room and I really had no idea what to say. I’m barely able to make rent right now as is. I’m waiting on hearing about this position on Monday but even then I don’t know where I’m going to get paid. I hate this. My parents won’t help me, I literally don’t have a fridge. I am paying 850 dollars for this and I’m not even a real renter. I barely have enough to eat as is and let’s not even think about gas. I’m not on a lease. I’m honestly freaking out rn this is just getting worse. Housing should be a human right
marketing chief of purism is giving support to ICE Show more
Remember, that racist agency that even imprisons children.
He made a video commenting on the removal of CTO from ICE from a #github conference.
He uses following argumentation:
- let's leave politics aside
- if left or right I don't care
- you cannot make everyone happy
- if you remove someone from a conference, more people will be mad at you
- ignore the critism, host anyone
this is the story of oportunism.
this is the story of marketing as a means
the video is sponsored by #purism. And his followers on twitter do have a clear position, that support his view points.
Those are the ones purism is advertised to.
Trans, poly, queer, affectionate
