It's been a pretty intense week on the fedi. Inherently, I think we all care about this space, so that has lead to some very passionate exchanges, and quite a few ugly ones.
Personally, I think this is a good thing. The organic quality of growth on the fedi is one of the main things I dig about it. Ha, and sometimes that isn't going to be pretty.
That said, it's important to remember to take care of yourself and decompress whenever you get the chance.
Just breath, baby. We're gonna be fine.
"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
so it's official, the government is trying to kill me. i cant survive off £93 a week, especially when we're being hit with such cold weather. i literally cannot work, i'm disabled, even standing for longer than 20 minutes can put me in severe pain. walking to the local store is difficult enough. at this rate i will have to decide between freezing or starving within the month.
if you have the ability, please consider donating so that i can keep the lights on.
Look, here’s the thing. I’m not going to say what you want. I have my views and perspectives that I believe in. If you need me to have a specific posture to mimic your particular sensibilities for cooperation, then we’re just not going to get along.
But if you’re about equality, justice and fairness for _all_ peoples, I’m in the fight with you. Every day. Even if you don’t dig me.
My commitment to progress is not based on being liked. I just want us to get free.
non-programmers are an important part of open source projects. non-programmer contributions are valid and useful and not second tier or otherwise less valuable.
it's easy to say programmers are the only value-add when you're fortunate enough to have enough non-programmers that you can take them for granted.
if you take away the feature requests, translations, and general chatter - many OSS projects would have never been more than flawed, narrow use case tech demos.

Well shit, it turns out mastodon is populated by the same shitty humans who do the same shitty things to each other. It's even made by a shitty human.
Best jump ship and upload my consciousness into Zuckerberg's cloud.
Admins come in all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life. Each admin is unique. However, one admin is whispered of with fear in between sips of mountain dew and bags of Doritos on IRC channels and #FLOSS local tls.
One admin, a modern-day siren, who leads all men with the hubris to challenge them to their cancellation, lies in wait.
Ask not for whom the admin of glitterkitten hunts. They hunt for thee.

introduction Show more
Hello fellow interneters, I am Ben. I like to make things such as; videos about stuff, diagrams that explain things that I cannot and things that make themselves using stuff. Right now that ambiguous 'stuff' I'm interested in is infrastructure, synchronisation, decentralisation and nature. I also write profusely and will always and forever enjoy photos of dogs doing human stuff.
I was brought here by @neufv and I'm here to explore.
Lets be friends!
frankly katherine the statement that you brought "free cupcakes" is misleading at best and malicious at worst. if i cannot readily access the recipe for your cupcakes then what you have is a plate of *gratis*, but not *libre*, cupcakes. would you call iOS "free software" because it comes with your phone? no, katherine. because you're better than that.
So today was a great day. A productive work day contributing to a project by creating software, learning new things about event-sourcing, nurturing myself by stopping work on time and getting outdoors and experiencing a new healthy meal, caring for my garden and cat, listening to a podcast to learn something new.
Simple life, happy Carly. 😊
@mfashby yeah. I'm seeing offer up, so I'll try that as well as craigslits maybe? Craigslist creeps me out a bit.
