Pinned toot

Slightly adjusted. I've added this to my website now, using it with the `image-rendering: pixelated;` CSS.

Fucking silly but I love it.

Did a video about basic awk usage. Forgot to record at 1080, so it's a bit fuzzy. Fuzzy's good, right?

hot take about open source software 

The most important thing about Free and Open Source Software isn't all the stuff about forking and pull requests and that. The most important thing is that it works to insulate code from the profit motive.

The ability to fork or request upstream changes is a vital part of that but not the point in and of itself.

You can get 1GHz of processing power for uber-cheap, but rich people are still trying to convince us that we need expensive computers just to talk to our friends.

Twitter politics? idk 

Feel as if fundamentally, community can only exist where joy is. And there is no joy on twitter because it is immediately regarded as political complacency, even if it is in spite of a political reality that it exists

Let's make a colour together! <3


as an historian, i'd point to the 1975 Biological Weapons Convention as one of the earliest examples of cancel cultures

A conservative, a centrist, and a leftist are on a sinking boat. The conservative is drilling the holes. The leftist is trying to patch them. The centrist is yelling at the leftist to stop rocking the boat.

if your antifa work consists of pasting stickers, tagging etc. please read this.

when I moved to Germany I was depressed, dysphoric, didn't speak the language, didn't leave my room, didn't make friends for >2 years. Trump had just been elected on racism against Latinx immigrants, and I had trauma from gender-based street violence in my country. Europe was having an immigration crisis, and parties like the AfD seemed on the rise. I felt as afraid in the streets as I learned to be in Brazil, scurrying through the evenings, heart thumping. Are neonazi emboldened by all this? Am I going to get beaten?

I was vaguely socialist but not politically aware. I was barely aware of what was "antifa" until Spencer got punched. It was a surprise for me to see antifa graffiti and "immigrants welcome" stickers almost every block, everywhere I went. It made me feel like there were people here who would stand by me (correctly :anarchismred:⁠).

if your antifa work consists of pasting stickers, tagging etc. it makes a lot of difference. you make people feel seen and cared about. with all my heart, thank you <3

Hi there. Sorry to interrupt. But what you are calling “tella” spread is actually GNU/Tella hazelnut spread, or as I’ve taken to calling it, GNU+Tella hazelnut spread.

stolen thought but

why do billionaires care if we take like, ALL of their money? they obviously have a super human work ethic. they can pull themselves up by the bootstraps and work a million times hard as your average shmuck to earn it back again, right?

If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon I would really appreciate it if you marked your account as a bot (see for explanation of the effect).

If it's a dual purpose account (i.e. crossposting AND direct posting), then I would appreciate it if you created a separate account for the twitter crossposting and marked that as a bot account.

Crossposted tweets appear as a mess of broken links, missing threads, and the account is often unresponsive to replies.
