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.

Car Ride With a Conservative (pol) 

I've spent most of my computer-time today revamping Issuepedia's set of pages on -like concepts and kinda consolidating them so the information wasn't scattered across half a dozen articles.

I ended up calling the umbrella concept "ubiquitous income", because it didn't look like anyone else was using that term and "ubiquitous" nicely echoes "UBI":

I tackled another myth that seems to be rearing its ugly head due to coming up in the most recent Democratic debate:

I'm sure I had some additional links on this but I couldn't find them and had to resort to cold searching to find the ones used.

My housemates are convinced our house is haunted.

I've lived here for 274 years and not noticed anything strange.

More people need to know that there are alternatives to FarceBook, and a lot of the alternatives work together with each other.

(Nitpick: G+ wasn't a failure. Google kind of pulled a Minbari Grey Council and surrendered.)

Okay, @helpers , I'm having a bit of trouble understanding what this message actually means.

I'm installing the latest Friendica but trying to connect to an old database, which obviously I need to upgrade -- but apparently the web installer won't even connect to it because it's "in use". What does that mean, technically? Where are the instructions for upgrading the database? hav not bin able to find...

Hmm. Should I, a left-leaning trans woman, respect the name changes of corporations, or do I keep calling FedEx Office "Kinko's"? 🤔

Hot take: the transition from feudalism to capitalism wasn't cataclysmic. This suggests that the transition from capitalism to whatever comes next may well also be gradual, not violent-revolutionary.

The small-but-growing co-op movement is one aspect of that transition.

also to anyone who’s planning on coming out to someone today good luck!!!! i believe in you

I feel like I should do a YouTube of me reading hackerspam in an evil voice.

financial need, boosts appreciated 

Two people just randomly reshared this meme that I posted on Farcebook 8 years and 2 days ago.

I suspect an algorithm at work.

(It's a slightly corrected version of a meme someone else had shared -- there was a spelling error or something, and the layout was sloppy.)

Ongoing pet peeve:

software that is project-based
but
the project file or folder does not include all the source files needed to build the end result
and
if you move the workspace folders which contain the project and the source files, the software can't find the source files anymore
EVEN IF
they're still in the same relative locations
BECAUSE
the project file stores ABSOLUTE PATHS instead of RELATIVE PATHS.

...and also it won't let you browse for the files -- so even if you know where they are, you have to manually reassemble the project. You've basically lost all your work.

Software Designers:
This Is Stupid.
Do Not Do This.

I'm sure there are lots of other examples besides the ones I've listed.
