Pinned toot

My poetry, sad, hope, rough draft 

Painted nails chipped and dirty
Form a fist with skinned knuckles
Caught between redevelopments
Our city rendered unrecognisable
A watching eye on every corner
A cop in every phone
Unrecognisable regeneration
No space to feel alone

If one day we could tear it down
Every office block a home
Destroy every shopping centre
Every police station closed
Repurpose, redistribute
A seedling in sunlight grows
Rewild, regrow together
No need to feel alone

Pinned toot


Bring down
The capitalist system

Some people were all mad about Github renaming the main branch.

No one be mad that they changed "Clone" to "Code"

Fucking cowards

Got this message on my install.

Enigmail, Thunderbird, PSA 

If you depend on the security of OpenPGP messages for important purposes, then please do NOT manually upgrade to Thunderbird 78.0. Instead, wait until you are automatically upgraded.

The traditional Enigmail Add-on will not be available for Thunderbird 78. As a replacement, Thunderbird 78 will include built-in support for OpenPGP.

The Thunderbird team needs more time to finalize this work. In version 78.0 it's still an experimental feature and disabled by default.

If you don't depend on the security of OpenPGP for important purposes, then you are welcome to enable it manually and help with testing.

The stable release of OpenPGP functionality is planned for Thunderbird version 78.2.

Just a little reminder that solarpunk still exists, and is still relevant during Covid-19 (:

But they need to also take care of their own house first.

Honestly I have seen so many Labour party activists come in to community organising, unions and co-ops and all the good stuff in my city. I am happy to work with them.

Woah the Labour left really got owned.

They really really need to step up their game and actually fight back against other factions in the party and the scummy Tories.

As ol' Bastani said, they need to contest every single position going with effective new candidates.

They urgently need to build socialist media institutions to tackle the bias against them.

They need to actually exist as a force in the community outside of London.

Build some counter power goddamnit! Stop being so wet.

Take a tip from a anarchist.

Pro brutalism obvs.

You should see what they replaced them with in my city. Hell.

sorry can't tell you my gender i only know the sha-256 hash of it

I'm enjoying using a bodged standing desk at the moment. It seems to help with my concentration.

This looked pretty decent. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Like when you get to the stage where you can't make a normal list of links on a page, that is fucking the opposite of making a website.

It's actually the worst implementation of something I've ever seen in Wordpress
