#2290 "Homemade Masks"
I'm going to change the sign so the pole is horizontal and the sign is mounted on the front like a plunger, so I can carry it around like a lance to gently push people back if they try to approach.
trans visibility, correcting the discourse
Can you, or anyone you know, verify that Emma Durutti was trans-identifying?
I read comments or a thread from sometime last year, from someone here on Fedi could personally verify this, but have been unable to re-locate it.
If you do know, please respond.
If you don't know, please boost.
Please refrain from opinions or speculation, the news does plenty of that for us already.
@news ....aaaand we're back!
We now have twice the CPU, twice as much RAM, and twice as much disk space! Hopefully the site will stop being as sluggish as it has been recently.
Now... I have to apologize, because on Patreon I had stated (in a patron tier description) that the site costs $40/month to run. I do spend a lot more than that for hosting various public-service sites I operate (including Issuepedia, CWRE, and HTYP), but #TootCat itself was (until just now) on a server which was only costing $20/month. It now *actually* costs $40/month.
I regret the error, which was entirely my own confusion. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make up for this.
Stay safe, and keep on tooting.
Can anyone recommend a multitrack audio recording interface that works well with Linux?
Would prefer something that uses USB, so it can work with a laptop...
...and would prefer at least 4, preferably 8, inputs (only need 2 outputs but for some reason these things tend to have at least as many outputs as inputs)...
...but I'll take any recommendations I can get.
(The 4 and 8 are mainly for digitizing old reel-to-reel recordings, cuz I have a 4-track and a 1/2" 8-track player and a lot of old material I'd like to bring into the digital realm.)
Word on the street is...
(Activism is a way of life; teach it to the young, and maybe the world will have a chance after this.)

Now we can't hug at all
Just keep me alone as I slide on down...
(apologies to Steely Dan)
(P.S. We're fine here so far at #HypertwinManor. Y'all stay safe.)
https://www.dailykos.com/campaigns/petitions/add-your-name-the-internet-should-be-a-public-utility -- this is the kind of thing I mean. It's not just about abusive housing practices; it's about leveling the playing field for everyone, across all the things we need in order to maintain a society of equals instead of falling back into oligarchy.
(And yeah, I know we were never really a society of equals -- but the internet *can* be a great leveler, if we can prevent and reverse its takeover by the oligarchs.)
covid-19: retail workers, petition
hey i work at target. we're not being paid extra or anything and we sell essential products so we're gonna be staying open as much as we can during the covid-19 outbreak.
there's a petition going around demanding hazard pay for the employees, it would mean a lot to me if you signed: http://chng.it/PdfhcPs9pL
...this morning, someone posted a Really Neat Thing (on alternative game dev stuffs), and now (thanks to Masto scrollback limits and lack of anything resembling search) I can't find it.
A little help here?
I thought I boosted and/or fav'd it, but either the system ate my request, or I didn't actually complete on that intention.
If you know of lightweight web interactive media creation tools, or literally anything that would let me build a choose-your-own-adventure style HTML game (without writing the raw html myself or trying to manually maintain the decision tree), please let me know?
