Thanks to 45 and his bullshit "tax cuts and jobs act" (tax cuts and fewer jobs) we didn't get enough of a tax refund to qualify for an advance this year. The advance we were expecting, which we needed to pay for @plausocks and @desvox's HRT, won't arrive until the 8th or more likely the 15th.
I fucking hate asking for money but fuck shit fuck I was counting on money that I'm not gonna get til mid-Feburary.

So the US is backing a coup against democratically-elected President of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro and I guarantee 0 liberals who were aghast at allegations that Russia interfered in the 2016 election are going to even give a shit

We had a visit from bailiffs today. We owe council tax about £1300
I have £40 to my name even if I maxxed everything out. They can give 2 days notice before breaking in and removing goods
I though this was covered back in march, but apparently that was a different year
I'm desparate. I have some contract work on, but it's a while until it pays and I still have rent to pay, not to mention I'm barely scraping by on contracts right now

sci-fi idea: a text file is found on a server somewhere. just line after line of seemingly random 64-byte strings. but then someone finds that each string's sha1sum begins with 16 zeros, implying whoever made the file had an absolutely ludicrous amount of computing power. but who could've made it...

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dropped into a 'Donkey Kong 64' session on Twitch
"In an effort to raise awareness for Mermaids, the Congresswoman chatted about discrimination and economic hardship experienced by the trans community.
"It makes these issues much more acute in their crises than they usually are on average for other people," she said. "So it's important that we do talk about these issues in the economic frame, but not let go of the fact that that discrimination is a core reason for the economic hardship."
thoughts about hbomb and the fundraiser Show more
cool. seeing lots of takes. and i'm fucking tired and burnt out on this place. my only take about the hbomb stuff?
it shows that there's a groundswell of people who care enough about trans people to throw money, the lifeblood of our capitalist society, at helping trans people in a far more direct way than posting shitty thinkpieces.
as trans people, we tend to condemn cis people who don't understand, noting understanding is their work, not ours. then, when they try to understand, we tend to default to criticizing that as performative. this is fucking bullshit imo.
i really can't bring myself to believe, logically, that this whole thing is performative. for me, as a trans person, this whole fundraiser is giving me an amazing feeling. it seems like, maybe, random people are just starting to not default to hating us.
it's not ideal – ideally, it wouldn't be necessary. but it's setting up a strong precedent for 2019. a really fucking strong one.
Expanding on the previous toot: I met dmr when he visited Italy in the late 70s to talk about Unix at the University of Milan. He spent an hour on the talk and God knows how many hours answering questions. My memories as a child are of a burly man with an American accent talking like a "kind giant" about stuff I loved. Right at the end I built up the courage to go and ask him something which bugged me enormously at the time (remember, this is pre-ANSI C) which was how printf() managed to have…
@cynicalsecurity I think kindness is best, generally. I've seen Linus with young coders though, and he's very decent.
The ire seems to come out toward those that he deems should know better.
multiple arguments. First of all he asked me if I knew C and then if I had learned about pointers. So I explained that they were taught to me using the example of a long road with many houses and that you could talk about a house using the house number or by placing an arrow outside it. The arrow was special because you could move it around as needed. I remember him smiling and then proceeding to explain printf() to me using this model.
This is who you should strive to be. Not Linus, not Theo.
I'm brand new here and would love to introduce myself, please feel free to call me Matthew, Matt, or Mattie c:
I'm still settling into actively practicing magick but would describe myself as a practical green witch, though I'm still on the fence for the moment.
Besides being a witch, I'm ftm transgender (he-him pronouns), pan, and poly along with being an art student.
