Pinned toot

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.

I could really use the money for food/drink today. Food stamps do not refresh until the 1st of September. Help me stay effective in running Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys Fashies out of town.:black_bloc_blob: :socialiststar:

I haven't eaten since Friday.

the fact that it’s basically impossible to opt out of society and do your own thing is a good sign that something is wrong with it

So, @ConnyDuck -- there's a subtle problem, let's call it a conceptual design issue, with the filter options on .

I kinda agree with @eryn* that:

1. just being able to see one iteration of replies isn't enough to enable keeping track of conversations
2. social media as a *communication* tool is why we're here on Mastodon
3. ...instead of Twitspace or Fazebook, where social media is viewed more as an attention-absorbing, click-aggregating tool
4. ...which is the kind of thing that only being able to track one iteration of replies *does* tend to support.

TLDR: "new mentions only" kinda supports corporate thinking, where "all mentions" is more user-empowering.

I fairly fell over laughing at today's fortune cookie fortune...

... @kestra "helped" with the photography because apparently she knows all about such things ;D

Not everyone needs FFS, but Nataly's face-dysphoria is pretty intense; we've talked it through, and... yeah. 😟

If "It's not getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got", then it should be okay to never throw stuff away, right?

hi all!

once again it's domain renewal time for selfcare.tech.

if you have gotten use out of the site or the bots i've created, a dollar or two of support would be most helpful and greatly appreciated.

I just wanted to take this moment to commemorate the fact that I am finally closing my pinned Google+ tab.

(You may have noticed it takes me awhile to let go of things sometimes.)

link to my book, worried its too obnoxious to just post straight up lol 

Welcome to our humble instance, @malweene and @EugeneGBruno! Also a belated welcome to @cinnamon!

Please let me know if you have any questions. ^.^ :scipio:

Also -- @meghanmarkle448, are you an actual person, or a name generated by a spambot? Thanks.

Tried Akaunting, which is supposedly open-source.

Looks nice, but they apparently want money to actually *do* anything with it.

...and we're back to writing my own.

my new app Webstronaut helps spiders place their webs by tracking the traffic of edible insects, but the beta testing isn’t going so well. when i put the test computer in front of a beta user, they just crawl on the screen — or out the window. one tried attacking the app; it was adorable.

I really, really want a mod interface that allows for more dialogue between mods and involved users (both the reporter and the reportee, but mainly the former).

Thanks to everyone's help, we were able to afford stuff like therapy and vitamins this month.

~~~

tldr - total is $4559.31 after it's all said and done ($3,736.86 for engine repairs, $822.45 for replacing the ball joints in the steering assembly), and after paying for the second chunk we're afloat but not by a lot.

If you're able to, please boost here, share on other social media, and if you have extra past survival and health, send a few dollars our way.

The internet was out for five days due to lightning, and I'm behind on...everything. Ko-Fi, Patreon, Liberapay, the works, it's all out of date.

We won't starve this month, even though they withheld @sesshirecat's EBT, and that's...a relief.

From the depths of my tarnished soul, thank you, friends, for your help with this.

We've survived another financial tsunami with your help.
