@runKleisli Hi, Im runKleisli! Im asking for $200/mo for rent & utilities!
Im permanently disabled. Arranging means of making money is difficult & overwhelming for me, & I cant maintain regular waking hrs. I was recently forced into an unaffordable living situation through domestic abuse, & need support 2 stay! Plz $
@switchingsocial Intrusive corporate surveillance.
Great to have an alternative voice assistant!
@gkrishnaks Amazon Rekognition is face-recognition software developed by Amazon, Google, & Microsoft for ICE!
Behold, the prototype 12s1p LiFePO4 battery pack. This is about 360 Wh and will be mainly used for firmware development, and trying out new things. I will give this a better case some day and turn it into the ultimate power bank.
If it looks wacky, that's because this is a Frankenstein design, made from parts from different projects.
Very Important, but: death, fascism (corrected)
Yesterday a woman, Emma Durutti,* put herself in a position to be murdered by cops.
Here's (allegedly) her own words about why. You must read this. It will hurt, regardless of your background and beliefs.
The author of this text is dead now. She chose to die, for the reasons here.
* She was trans, and is being dead-named and misgendered in most media, including my previous posts.
wow look at this pastebin of ice agents i just accidentally posted
sure would be bad if a bunch of people saved copies of this, sure hope nobody does that
Streaming alternatives, racist software
Mixer.com is anothing one, but its owned by Microsoft, w/c similarly develops software for & materially supports ICE in the US, though it isnt looking for a total supply chain monopoly, making it a different thing to fight.
Im interested in if Restream.io is a good way of engaging a streams community. Specificly if Restream Chat allows ppl to effectively base their stream off a website that doesnt support ICE but give ppl a second link to a more wellknown website w/out splitting the community completely & misleading ppl!
This episode of Normalizing Non-Monogamy features my eldest child and her husband. I am, as always, insufferably proud of her and happy she is finding such joy in her life. I had heard the story of her birthday bonfire celebration already, but hearing it at greater length as she described her experience made me so happy for her.
The Amazon Strike is happening on Prime Day (July 16th), so don’t use any of their products or services.
Here is a list of Amazon’s products and services: https://www.minterest.com/list-of-all-amazon-products-and-services/
Northwest Detn Center, police killing
There was going to be a picnic outside NWDC for #LightsForLiberty yesterday but the cops shot & killed someone there whod come early, 4am.
So they closed the road off.
There are regular protests there Sat mornings, its just down the road from a popular food court, & it doesnt seem weird for somebody to have been going down there at the time.
PNW / repression / bleak warnings
Hi friends! I'm matching donations to RAICES this month up to $32,000.
That's an ambitious limit and I could use your help reaching it -- whether or not you can donate, I would really appreciate your boosts!
To have me match your donation:
1. Donate any amount at https://raicestexas.org/donate
2. FORWARD your email receipt to email@example.com.
Posting a screenshot is also encouraged, but forwarding receipts will help me track what I hope will be a lot of email!
money, probably-permanent request for help, boosts welcome
the only income we have is the little bit we get monthly on our patreon and from commissions. we are frequently in need for groceries, meds, doctor's appointments... shit comes up and pretty often we have to make a rushed request for help and it sucks.
you can also contact us about commissions for art like we have on https://acey.eerie.garden/art/glitch and also feel free to grab our music on https://red-onyx-music.xyz/mx_ace_fucking_jaycee.html for free and then paypal us to dodge bandcamp fees and still feel like you're supporting us by paying for our work
also ppl can always DM for the personal paypal which takes less fees!
Just a reminder that while Deray MKcesson built his monetizable brand of wokeness off of Ferguson’s horror show, 5 actual boots on the ground activists have been found dead under "mysterious circumstances". One who actually slapped him in the face for profiteering off their city’s pain. And Cori Bush herself is currently being targeted and violently intimidated.
US genocide, upcoming ICE raids, important information, please boost
upcoming ICE raid, how to help immigrants
The ICE raid (that was delayed due to Trump announcing it on Twitter) is on again: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/11/us/politics/ice-families-deport.html
It specifically targets recent immigrants in major cities who have already been ordered to leave, but will also pick up other undocumented immigrants who happen to be with them.
See replies to this message for ways to take action. Feel free to add your own!
I also will blurt out things I see on signs. It's another longstanding quirk.
I didn't realize until this Ask an Autistic video that *delayed* echolalia was a thing. I also can express immediate echolalia, especially when stressed or tired. But I've always been aware that people react more to that so it's one of the things I work to keep inside, part of my camouflaging. The delayed echolalia was always received more as quirky and eccentric which was acceptable.
