If you hustle by selling on Etsy, driving for Uber, doing DoorDash, or even funding small projects via gofundme as an "independent contractor" you are not a small business in how most people mean it. You are an alienated worker who is managed and exploited by the platform.
When politicians speak of "small business" they mean landlords with less than 100 rentals, restaurants with less than 10 locations, less than 10K employees. That's not gig workers.
Mit dieser Drachenlord-Geschichte hatte ich mich bisher 0 beschäftigt. Krass. Krass, welche Energie Menschen in Hass investieren. Krass, wie schäbig die Justiz reagiert. Danke für die Aufarbeitung, Sascha Lobo. https://www.spiegel.de/netzwelt/netzpolitik/der-fall-drachenlord-ein-jahrelanges-martyrium-in-deutschland-und-niemand-haelt-es-auf-kolumne-a-91b94ce3-ab01-4ac1-9286-d85bea144928
Interessant: Wenn Männer etwas weiblich konnotiertes singen, dann wird aus einem bereits maskulinen Wort (der Alt) ein _noch_ maskulineres Wort (der Altus), damit man auf keinen Fall auf die Idee kommt, hier läge eine Frau vor. „Während die Sprache den Identitäts-Bedürfnissen des Mannes üblicherweise umgehend angepasst wird, war solcher sprachlicher Aufwand für die Frau noch niemals Usus.“  https://www.fembio.org/biographie.php/frau/comments/sie-singt-tenor-im-kirchenchor-oder-das-frauenstimmrecht/
Sol Garden is a BIPOC focused #neurodivergent private forum!
It's meant for *all* neurodivergent folks, self diagnosis is 100% valid
It's very very low key and still very tiny
We do vet people (not your diagnosis) to keep our community safe, particularly our #BIPOC members. I 100% cannot tolerate white nonsense
Make a post using #SolGardenInvite and one of us will message you!
Took a .docx glossary the client gave me and pasted it right into the plaintext glossary of my #OmegaT project. A little cleanup using a macro and bam, it works for autocomplete without even needing to restart the app. I love OmegaT.
Self-care is telling LoK's awful attempt at political storytelling to go fuck itself and enjoying the beautiful action animations and sapphic goodness
Avatar: The Legend of Korra spoilers, LoK critical
@schratze It seems to me LoK as a show has extreme problems with resistance to established order. Maybe it has to do with the conservatism of the heroic genre in general. The way Republic City had become a fiefdom for the original crew's descendants and proteges was really interesting, but the show refused to take any kind of critical look at that. Similarly, killing the Avatar is an actually interesting idea and could have been explored more from different angles, but again the show completely refused to see the Avatar as anything but an absolute good and so the conflict became flat and simplistic. LoK was frustrating not so much because it was bad but because it raised issues that it refused to deal with in the depth they deserved.
So, hey, I'm a translator. And I'm pretty much *always* looking for more work.
I translate to and from Polish.
Not the most in-demand language in the English-speaking world, but if you need a translation done or know someone who does, hit me up.
I'm good at what I do, I have low rates, and I can work pretty damn fast if that's what you need.
I am also pretty versatile, I've translated everything from literature to marketing to technical stuff.
The #Binti trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor follows Binti, a young Himba woman who travels through space to Oomza University, the finest institute of learning in the galaxy. The journey she takes and the people she meets will change her and the world forever as she discovers her heritage and takes on an interstellar conflict that threatens her people. The backdrops, from distant planets to future Namibia, come alive with beauty, treachery, tragedy, and wonder.
Hey @elementary, I've been playing around with the Odin Beta and I've noticed that some GTK apps don't respect the dark style setting. Is there a central place where you track this sort of issues? I did a quick search on Github, but only found per-app issues.
Apart from that it's looking amazing, I'm very excited for the release!
When you write hashtags, remember to use CamelCase (where each word has a capital letter).
This makes it much easier for blind and partially-sighted people's screen reader apps to read the hashtag out loud, and makes your message much more accessible.
