Eye contact, prejudice mention, SW mention 

Ello!

Quick introduction:

What isn't covered in my bio, I'm Nikki, a trans woman and repeat survivor.

If you catch me being problematic, please call me out💖.

I'm a former streamer/Let's Player, that consuming period of my life ended when I came out and originally attempted to live my life authentically; the circles, as you could imagine, were antagonistic, I was effectively deplatformed and began focusing entirely on Academics.

Academia also proved to be a dangerously toxic environment for a trans woman in STEM. I am a programmer (former SW'er) with a decade of experience behind her in object oriented programming(Java, Cpp, Python), U/L, and databases(JPQL, MySQL, Oracle, PL/SQL); currently trying to figure life out and find a trans-safe work space while receiving EMDR for my PTSD and searching for freelance work.

Job search 

Junior Back-end/DevOps engineer desperately looking for work, preferably remote, but will relocate.

Comfortable in SQL, Oracle SQL, MySQL, Java, C++, and Python. Learning C# at the moment.

Gave up on going back to sleep. Listening to Emily A. Sprague’s new Hill, Flower, Fog. Very calming. mlesprg.bandcamp.com/album/hil

Does anyone know an open source calendar for Android because I have lots of things going right now with online classes and an app like that would be good

Using my tax return to go to the doctor might just be peak millennialism

So you’re free this Friday? And you’re not going to the Rally Against Capital to fuck with some bankers? Why? Come along and show the bankers where the power really lies.

Emergency funding donations 

Finally have a place lined up with a lease signed, we're just missing utilities.

RT if able, thank you so much.

Please reach out to me if you have questions.

Hey all, thought I'd finally get round to introducing myself.

I'm Kate, a pan/demi cis ladyperson, painfully shy at times but friendly.

Avid reader of books and graphic novels. (Please recommend things!)

Hydroponics beginner. Dabbler in bookbinding, papercutting, 3D modelling, digital illustration, woodwork, crafting and making in general.

Big fan of vidyagames. Not big fan of vidyagame industry. Mostly play open world RPGs, roguelikes and survival sims.

Always learning. Currently trying to make a low budget hydroponics setup, brush up my Chinese, improve my artwork and quiet my existential dread. Always open to advice and positive criticism.

Medic stuff? 

Made a medic friend last night and might have an in to learn more street med? So that might be a thing that's happening.

I'm leaving Facebook forever. There are better alternatives that aren't cancers on the internet.

A new nanotech advancement involving a nontoxic and earth-abundant compound called "barium zirconium sulfide", or BaZrS3, is making it even easier to convert solar energy into usable electric grid infrastructure.

"BaZrS3 belongs to a category of materials known as chalcogenide perovskites, which are nontoxic, earth-abundant compounds.

In recent years, theorists have calculated that various chalcogenide perovskites should exhibit useful electronic and optical properties ... "

This article about the recent arrival on Mastodon of many Twitter users from #India is by far more complete than many others I've seen these days: qz.com/india/1746734/angry-twi
But unsurprisingly it ends with a common doubt about Mastodon being a platform filled with echo chambers.

Well, being an italian that in the last days interacted with so many people from India and having learned from many new things about indian society from them it sounds fun 😄

On Mastodon you can find and interact with a huge amount of different communities: LGBT communities based in UK, vegans from the States, german metalheads, Solarpunks, some algerian guys, italian anarchists, french hackers, anime-fans from all around, indian muslims, south american activists...

It's a kind of variety that is rarely encountered on commercial social media.

It's all about the phosphorous.

"Continually logging and re-growing tropical forests to supply timber is reducing the levels of vital nutrients in the soil, which may limit future forest growth and recovery, a new study suggests. This raises concerns about the long-term sustainability of logging in the tropics.

Trees of recovering tropical forests were found to have tougher leaves, with lower concentrations of the nutrients phosphorus and nitrogen—both essential for plant and tree growth—than trees of old-growth forests. This suggests that multiple cycles of logging and recovery irreversibly remove phosphorus from the forest system, and are pushing the nutrient content towards ecological limits."

For anyone that wants to know how Rojava's political system functions, check out Neighbor Democracy's short documentary 'The Communes of Rojava'. It defines what a commune is and goes into depth about the various communal committees; Defence, Health, Peace & Consensus, Economics, Education and Women's committees, that allow society in Rojava to direct itself :rojava:
