#introductions 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.
Hey, since Mastodon is a kind of a dating place, I announce that I am single and I'd love to meet new people, especially trans women, talk about everything we would like to, get acquainted etc.
Sounds nice to you?
Is it okay to do this?
Come, I'm shy, but I don't bite (except if you ask for it).
And boost this toot as much as possible!
pol, internet shittiness that is all too common Show more
yes, there are many intensities of PTSD. that doesn't make any level of PTSD invalid. no, it doesn't have to be something stereotypically traumatic.
PTSD can shape the way you work in incredibly hard ways, especially when you have many layers of PTSD (called Complex PTSD)
I've experienced personally A Lot of various types of PTSD (including the military related sort!!!) and all of them are valid. Don't be a jerk.
It's become clear that I don't have the resources to fight the horrors of this world on my own, that was naive.
I love free software, but working at that level does not help us transition away from the insane capitalist world we're currently in, I want to work at a lower and more human level.
Are there any good socialist and or lgbtq+ organisations that need a programmer, systems engineer or system administrator?
When vampire libertarians fund creationism/climate change denial…
Progress! NC just made it easier for trans people to correct the sex marker on their state IDs:
I wonder if I actually have to get my doctor (who is sometimes hard to reach) to fill out that second part, or if I can just attach my surgery letter... or the two recommendation letters I needed in order to get the surgery...
gpg bug Show more
There appears to be a bug in newer versions of gpg which basically means you can't authenticate (at least) some packages, including Nextcloud desktop.
If this command --
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 1FCD77DD0DBEF5699AD2610160EE47FBAD3DD469
...results in "gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure", then you're seeing the bug.
More info: https://dev.gnupg.org/T3168
applies to Ubuntu 18.04 and Mint 19.1 (probably many other distros)
Mastodon does no longer spark joy. You’ve felt it, I’ve felt it.
Now it’s time to recognize what Mastodon has given us, but leave it behind. Mastodon has brought us a community and friends we did not have before. We’ve connected across worlds and fallen in love, we’ve experienced heart ache, and loss.
Today, we thank you Mastodon for everything we’ve had, and everything you’ve given. We will leave you here.
This somehow seems like a very #tootcat shirt: https://www.zazzle.com/apostrophe_catastrophe_t_shirt-235511147600730669
Wish I'd thought of it.
I just thought I'd draw attention to the latest #tootcat upgrade, which now lets you edit the names of your Lists(!) -- as implemented by our very own @kity (ash) in less than a day and now part of the GlitchSoc distro.
I mean, like, wow -- how long has it been since Lists were introduced, and they couldn't be renamed until now? dafuq.
Anyway, I sent ash a tip for adding that leetle oversight; please feel free to contribute to ash's future work on this and other projects (see @kity for links).
