i think fedi is legitimately better than other social media because the more you use it, the more it encourages you to not need it anymore. commercial sites literally do everything they can to get you to spend as much of your time on them as you can by making you as miserable as possible. fedi on the other hand draws you in by making you believe in the world outside. if you jump in whole-heartedly enough it will spit you out as someone else, if not somewhere else

Today is Earth Overshoot Day.

Today, we used up all the resources which Earth can produce this year. The resources of Earth, used after this day, are unsustainable.

Today is only 64% of the way through the year.

We need to fix this.

@pfx :( maybe it’s the heat/light? Sleeping is hard in the summer

@pfx @anarchiv woah you two type fast. I’m a bit further away now but I’m sure we can make something work. Looking forward to it!

@pfx @anarchiv a jade plant please puff! I was just wondering what the ‘schlumbergera’ was called

@pfx glad you’re finally sleeping, doesn’t hurt to have the odd day of doing nothing. You still feeling rough then?

fin pol i guess, marvelling at ppl 

valid things to complain about:
-i can't afford to pay this much tax
-our tax money goes to military funding and industry bailouts and doesn't actually help support us as a nation
-paying taxes is complex and an accessibility issue for many

not super valid to complain about really:
-can't believe i'm forced to contribute to the society i live in ://

sad, plant 

@pfx this might be unorthodox but I got rid of root aphids on some cuttings by uprooting them and soaking in cayenne pepper and then soap

They promptly died from being left 3 months without water but they did live a while and the aphids were gone

@pfx yeah we’ll see. You got any plans today?

@pfx not the dreaded work! I’m a little bit gutted cos my walk I was planning has been postponed in favour of helping my dad at work for a few hours then waiting for a couch with my sister. Maybe tomorrow though

Sometimes when I'm helping a non-techie with computer issues, and the best advice I can give them is "did you try turning it off and back on again," I wonder if they think I'm not really trying to help them, or that I'm withholding some secret computer science knowledge from them. But no – this is the big insight! When you're a programmer, you realize that programmers don't really know what they're doing. All software is terrible. And our collective misfortune, as users, is to do battle with it
