Pinned toot

means we agree to refuse non-critical outside requests.

If we cannot prioritize our own lives over the profits of our faceless oppressors, have they finally crushed our will to survive?

Are the people of this place and time domesticated beyond revolution, even at the cost of everything they love?

Refuse to pay your rent.
Refuse to use your financial privilege.
Refuse to allow the broken system to keep burning us, time and again and again.

Commerce is the lifeblood of the system.
Without profit, the husk grinds to a halt within days.

Choose to keep power, water, and other infrastructure utilities online.

There is enough for us *all* if we share our ability and excess.

No healthy human needs *that* many rolls of toilet paper.

Please, if you're that ill,
seek professional help.

shoutout to everyone out there

constantly going through a lot
in poverty and underpaid for your skills and services
without help for disability
afraid
chronically sick
misgendered
misdiagnosed
traumatized

y'all are the real heros, simply for surviving.

someday I will have money, power, or some measure of influence,
and I will do my inhuman best to uplift you in any and all meaningful ways.

pdx, information request, rent strike 

We cannot allow unpaid labour to replace the work we set aside.

The simple things are where a movement lives or dies, and that means the invisible labour, the sex work, the things that are within our power to temporarily shut off without harming one another.

On April 1st, we must act together.

Shut off the flow of likes.
Disable the phone data gathering.
Put down your device and use the day to meet your neighbors where they are, fulfill their needs, and share a resource.

The broken systems of advertising, sales, marketing, and finance itself cannot operate on a large scale without your consent and complacency.

If you do nothing else on the 1st, shut off your phone and leave it behind for the day.

Just one day will make a massive difference.

We start with a commitment for one full day of resistance.

oi @Tusky, there's a pair of bugs that I've encountered.

---
The first is an old one,
(which has been difficult to pin down,)
where sometimes the words disappear midway through composing a toot.

Most times it's past halfway to my instance's 1k char post limit. Seems sometimes special characters, especially single quotes maybe, will trigger this bug, but reproducing it has been a bit unreliable.

Discovered today that the text is visible in Android's text selection cursor box, so that's a workaround.

---
Secondly, the username autocomplete will add a non-individually-eraseable space after touch-selection, and punctuation additions (eg "@username, word") get slightly awkward.

Thoughts?

Would you participate in a on the first of April (2020.04.01) demanding universal basic income, affordable housing, an end to for-profit medical care, and the elimination of all outstanding personal debt?

Or is scheduling it for April Fool's Day too on the nose for that?

Wow great I can just "Create a /var/<appname> folder and copy content (from the docs) below into a file..."

Is having an actual install script & manpage too much to ask?
(ps DOCKER IS NOT A VIABLE WAY TO HOST THINGS IRL jeebus fsck)

...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?

Mediation is done.

The settlement requires the county police department to develop a training program for interacting with autistic individuals.

More updates (tomorrow?) once we decompress and recover spoons.

Eviction has been postponed, and as long as the county actually pays up, we will have housing for the rest of this year.

...

...

idk if y'all understand how incredible this seems to me, it's been...four years? since we could plan further ahead than a month or two.

Exhausted.
Still a bit numb and dissociated, the reality of being able to pay our bills hasn't set in yet.

This wouldn't have been possible without your help, and the help of everyone who has supported, assisted, and encouraged us in the past years.
