liberals are tripping over each other to congratulate Pelosi for ending the shutdown that airline workers and flight attendants ended. They're saying Trump and Pence (?!) are gonna resign in disgrace. I've got money on it. if Trump stepped down and Pence stepped in, Pelosi herself would say something like "finally, normal has been restored"
@punky A variety of reasons, including a lot of harassment from m.s users hitting other instances, a lack of moderation on m.s to deal with issues (m.s basically only has one active mod and can only do so much alone), the fact that they refuse to close registration and keep growing in spite of their lack of moderation... these are just a few.
My instance has m.s silenced and let me tell you, my federated timeline is so much better for it.
everyone should read about the lucas plan, and how a group of workers briefly took control to produce technology for the common good
What would you like to see in our solarpunk future?
It's so easy to talk about what you don't want in the future, but harder to pin down what you do want. So my idea is simply to capture and share your ideas the kind of things you want to see in a solarpunk future.
You can read my post, which describes this in a bit more detail: https://cafe.sunbeam.city/~/GwenfarsGarden/what-does-a-solarpunk-future-look-like
Then feel free to start submitting your ideas, which I'll collate them and create a new post to inspire and share.
learning to program is stressful lmao Show more
i feel like learning programming languages is just an exercise in slowly tearing your hair out over a minor issue that's ruining your program until you realize its because of one tiny mess up in a really innocuous spot
"there's no way i could mess up making something equal something else, i don't need to re-read that part that carefully"
Just an FYI for people interested in the #SolarpunkFuture post. I've been sent lots of great ideas which I'm collating. Due to ill health I won't be up to publishing it until the end of this week though.
So if you would still like to submit something, please do. I'm still 'on it', just, well, slowly :)
If you don't know what I'm on about, see: https://cafe.sunbeam.city/~/GwenfarsGarden/what-does-a-solarpunk-future-look-like
There's an initative in #germany wanting to change that:

Men's mental health is so important!!!! Supporting each other and telling your boys that they look good can move mountains of internalized shame and self-loathing!!! It is not weak to tell your bros you feel fat or ugly or anything like that. It's strong and I support and love you.

I used to feel silly keeping a baseball bat in my car, but this week PNW fash posted videos of the machetes and bats they keep in their vehicles. They were out and about targeting DSA, IWW, women's Marchers and union activists.
new music release! A new EP inspired by solarpunk called ASTRAL.
All tracks were made using 100% FOSS. All tracks are CC. If you have a cool project and don't want to attribute me just ask me and I'll probably OK it. Everything is pay what you want with no DRM. 💖
The other day I wanted to share a video.
YouTube wanted me to login, give them my real name, provide an email address (wouldn't take a throwaway for an answer) and a phone number to text me (I don't have a phone).
I went to a #Peertube instance instead. They accepted my throwaway email address and my video. Didn't ask for personal information. And the upload and video playback worked great.
So, thank you @Chocobozzz and everyone else who worked on Peertube.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
