re: transmysic trope, shitpost
@lexi Hey, if certain members of the cis would actually *acknowledge* that I was born in the wrong body, that'd be a plus.
Exchanges aren't technically feasible yet, but at least they'd be thinking in the right direction (vs. thinking of it as a choice of some sort on my part).
Pretty sure I'm not alone in this, too.

@natecull I've stashed that link for later on when I have a budget for pure software research*.
@natecull omigosh, Margaret Hamilton!
grim 39th anniversary; pol
I was listening to the radio late on December 8th when the DJ said he had some really bad news (I think he may have used the word "bummer").
I did a memorial cartoon for my high-school newspaper's next issue; I'll have to dig all that stuff up and have it scanned in for next year.
The McNeil-Lehrer report, instead of focusing on the sensationalistic aspects of the event, rightly brought up the issue of gun control. (My dad scoffed at this; I guess he preferred the sensationalism.) ...and here we are, 39 years later, things only having gotten worse.
We all thought "happiness is a warm gun" was a parody, a straw-man of how anyone actually felt... but the experience of the past decade or two has only shown that it's alarmingly accurate in too many cases.
Absolutely! I mean, who did all the hard work of taking other people's clever ideas and using them to manipulate the masses into giving them more and more money, amright?? Not the rank-and-file, that's for sure.
The world doesn't reward losers, and anyone who tells you different is just trying to take back what's been rightfully stolen from them, fair and square.
@moonbolt Maybe both?
Find Out How This Canadian City Has Eliminated Homelessness
@pzmyers It's been clear to me for years that the goals of social media corps are... not our goals.
Hence the fediverse -- most of the code for which is still too soaked in corporate thinking, but it's a start -- and the numerous projects to create more democratically-governed alternatives.
...and why I host my own instance.
(Eventually, maybe I'll even be able to figure out how it works and improve it >.>)
We all pretty much have stuff that needs fixing.
In a decent society, that wouldn't be a source of shame. It'd be a matter of course for people to be helping us to fix them.
Like... it isn't a stigma to need a bandaid when you cut yourself.
...but imagine if people were all "But you did it to yourself! Why do you think you deserve help with that bandaid? Other people have far worse injuries than you do -- those bandaids should be saved for them! What's wrong with you? You need to stop accidentally hurting yourself, if you want to live in this world."
The problem with these instructions is that they don't give you any information on how to diagnose what's happening when it doesn't work: https://wiki.debian.org/SaneOverNetwork#Sharing_a_USB_Connected_Scanner
How can I tell if the server is serving properly? How can I tell what the client is doing when it's looking for a scanner? No information at all.
Setting up an image scanner for use over a network should be as easy as setting up a network printer, dangit... but it's no easier now than it was 10 years ago. #wtf.
re: trashpost plea for help, THIS IS NOT REAL IT IS NONSENSE. I AM FINE. I guess maybe commentary on broadness of term 'celebrity'? question mark?
@sydneyfalk <thinks of Orphan Black, but couldn't stand to watch enough of it to have any humorous references to toss in>
This seems like a silly thing, but...
I wish I had an app where I could enter in the pieces of lumber I have (usually leftovers) and the lengths I need, and it could tell me what lengths to cut from which pieces so as to minimize waste.
A similar app for postage stamps would be good too (enter in current stamp inventory and how much postage I need, and it figures out how to get that total with the fewest stamps... with an option to remove those stamps from inventory, and maybe even a feature which projects how soon you're likely to run out of each denomination at the current rate so you can order more ahead of time).
(Yes, we still use postage stamps occasionally for sending things too small for Priority. fite me.)
Aren't there penalties to containerization, though? I don't actually know, but my impression is that it:
- adds some amount of extra resource load (RAM? CPU? don't know)
- reduces customizability
- hinders maintenance (in that you don't have direct access to the app, and have to go through the container's interface)
In general, isn't it also kinda putting more control in upstream hands?
Toxic masculinity, question, boosts OK
Is there a good way to say "I assume that people are not sexually interested in me as I think that assumption drips of toxic masculinity" without sounding self-deprecating?
Like, I think there are people interested in me, I just don't want to assume any specific person is, as well, that is what douchebro red pills do?
Trying to explain this to someone without sounding self-insulting.
