I've been: A misogynist, a racist, a republican, a Bernie supporter, a neoliberal, a catholic, a politician, an employer, and countless other things of which I am ashamed.
My sheltered ignorance and bourgeois programming are my lame-ass defence.
I only hope that if people like Saul of Tarsus and Carne Ross can walk the path of redemption that I might follow in their footsteps.
Hi, I'm Tim. I was never on Tumblr. I work in retail and deal with my fair share of boobs every day thank you very much. I joined Sunbeam City for thoughtful Anarchist discussion and have yet to be disappointed. Probably one of the oldest tooters on this instance, I thank you in advance for your patience as I'm still unlearning decades of privilege and conditioning. I can contribute #foraging #carpentry #microcontrollers #electronics #folkways #ukulele & #humor to the milieu.
it's still #sundiy so here's my dad's chicken tortilla soup recipe.
1) boneless skinless chicken breast or thighs
2) 2 cans black beans
3) large bottle of salsa
4) 2 cans diced tomatoes
5) additions like corn and other beans are allowed
just toss everything in a crock pot, put it on low for the day. when you're ready to eat, remove the chicken and shred it.
the way we generally serve it is with tortilla chips at the bottom and cheese on top! feeds lots, but leftovers never last too long!
Pocket knife recomendation: Opinel Show more
We don't like to buy stuff.
In fact most of us really try to avoid it if we can.
For the most part we also lack money.
If you find yourself in need of a trusty pocket knife, I suggest you check out Opinel.
I've enjoyed this one's service for years. The timeless lock-blade style comes in several sizes (this one cost under $10 US) and is made in France of metal and birch wood. No plastic. The steel is of high quality, and as a bonus it floats.
Here's a taste of the latest blog entry from https://cafe.sunbeam.city/ --- Read: Infect Your Friends and Loved Ones by Torrey Peters Nobody can make their own hormones; storebought is fine Written by catteonbook - March 21, 2019 I was planning to put this with the other books I read recently, because I don't feel like I have something profound to say about it. But when has that ever stopped me. So when my inadequate review didn't get shorter than three paragraphs no matter how hard I tried, I decided to give it its own post.

Hey Solarpunx, get ready for the possibility of some nice northern lights on Saturday evening owing to a c4 flare today with associated CME.
Here's a taste of the latest blog entry from https://cafe.sunbeam.city/ --- Writing Issues Unique To Centralized Social Media Written by LWFlouisa - March 20, 2019 Centralized social media has a writing issue I'm not really sure there is really an equivalent to elsewhere: if you happen to be into ladies in Jesus sandals, because you view Jesus sandals in the same way most other people into women view stiletto heels: then on places like the Birdsite, you're at risking of having your post liked by the Jesus Sandal profile.

May I humbly present Butyric Acid. While being possessed of a multitude of health benefits currently under scrutiny, it has one very fatal flaw.
You see, Butyric Acid is one of the most horrendously disgusting smells known to the human nose. One drop can clear an average sized room. A 30ml vial from Amazon will last someone a VERY long time. 🤢
what is the "analogue loophole"? why do people say that removing the headphone jack would allow companies to restrict your ability to listen to music? (long, serious) Show more
the "analogue hole" refers to the idea that no matter how hard you try to make sure nobody can make illegal copies of videos, music, or text, there's always a "hole" in the protection that occurs when it's no longer digital. digital content can be protected - video files can be encrypted, music players can limit you to five devices - but analogue signals can't be. for example, itunes can disallow you from putting a song on more than five computers, but if you play the song through your speakers and record it, what you do with it is beyond apple's control.
one of the few remaining analogue outputs on a modern device is the audio jack. this is where you connect your headphones or speakers. your laptop only knows that something's plugged in. it doesn't know what's connected. you could be playing it through earphones or a massive speaker system and it wouldn't be able to tell. meanwhile, HDMI is a digital output format. it can tell if it's been plugged into a TV or a recording device, and can automatically disable output if you're recording it to make it harder for you to make copies of movies.
if the audio jack is replaced by USB-C or bluetooth, it becomes possible to tell what you're connecting to the laptop or phone. your phone might disable audio playback on anything but headphones to prevent you from hosting a public event with the music. it could also detect a recording device that you're using to (for example) make a copy of a song you're listening to on spotify and turn off the playback.
of course, at some point, digital needs to become analogue. humans can't watch electrical pulses, we need to see patterns of light. we can't listen to streams of 1s and 0s, we need vibrations in the air. this means that it's impossible to truly defeat the analogue hole - no matter what you do, someone can always just point a camera at their TV. it'll have worse quality, but it can never be stopped.
the analogue hole is one of many ways to circumvent DRM, or digital rights management. you can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analog_hole

The Fever Dream of a Meatspace Social Network:
* Picture something that works like an apartment mailbox. Folks can sign up to get a box.
* Folks with a box can give letters and small parcels to the "postmaster" who distributes them among the boxes.
* These can be anything from artful trinkets, to personal notes, to shitposts.
* With the right crowd of users, folks could expect a steady stream of the unexpected yet entertaining.
* On the cheap, this could be pulled off by the postmaster maintaining a stack of cardboard boxes dedicated to each member and physically handing over the contents.
Hi, I am Guido, LU8EQ from Argentina. I've just signed up and started exploring this new world.
So making first toot for #introductions is a great way to begin with.
I really like vintage/classic ham radio gear.
