I'm writing a guidebook for activism.

Dear world,
is online.

My insurance company hasn't paid my disability this year.
I'm being evicted.
I'm trying to somehow produce enough benefit to the community that people can risk spending their money, right now, to help me out.


Please share this with others, and on other social networks.

Good activism tools help us all.
Help me stay alive, please?

I'm planning a planet-wide block party for midsummer.

We can agree to put aside the things that divided us yesterdays past, and intentionally set out to have new beginnings with our community, for *one* day.


One planet.
All of us want life.
We agree to parlay with eachother.

Sometimes, just having a space to relax helps everyone unclench.

Everything has us wound so tightly, we all snap at eachother all the time.

The solution is a

I'm homeless now, financial need, ongoing Show more

Repairs progress, about 60% complete, car is now "drivable", despite the electrical issues and the lack of...well, most cosmetic things forward of the driver's seat.

The plasma torch is operating perfectly.
Had a minor problem with the pilot arc earlier today, but turned out it was operator error.


If anyone has suggestions for the aesthetic, I am, figuratively speaking, all ears.
Currently going for "Mad Max: Fury Road" meets "Firefly" with a bit of rustpunk for flavour.

I don't know what I am, but I'm here.

I write a lot about feelings (especially grief) and dissolving the plutonomy. I code; I record original music; I build shelves; I pull out wisteria; I parent; I friend.

In suspended transition from 2000-2016, struggling towards transgirl since then.

Since I don't feel that I have anything to prove anymore, I don't really put a great deal of effort into explaining my technical decisions, and I get cranky when people question why I do things a certain way, because of course you have to do it that way. I often have to think back to even remember why I do things a certain way, because it's second nature for me at this point. This is not the mindset of a disruptive innovator. This is the mindset of a veteran.

Oooh I love postgresql's jsonb type ! I accidently set the background image for my pleroma account and didn't find a way to delete it in the interface. So I searched a bit in the database and quickly found that the column users.info contained it (quite easy).

At first, I didn't know about jsonb, so I thought it was a string and I was in for a painful REGEXP_REPLACE to remove the "background" property of the object. Then the psql interpreter complained about my trying to use REGEXP_REPLACE on a jsonb value, I read about it and realised my UPDATE would be as simple as :

UPDATE users SET info = info - 'background' WHERE id = 1;

(that's right, my id is 1, that's what you get for opening your own instance 😉)
