if you haven't seen it already, we have a platform for discussing the future of SBC and resolving the issues with the instance and the coop that have been raised by current and former members. It can be found at sunbeamcity.autonomic.zone/. Both members and observers of the instance are invited to participate in discussions.

I'm putting my filters up in a reduced capacity on this account, but here's a reminder anyway:
Some work needs to be put in by everyone doing anti-ableism work to remove ableist language from their lexicon.
Words to avoid: crazy, dumb, stupid, *-tard, cripple, and anything else that chooses to invalidate a person by relegating their mental/physical faculties into an 'other' box.
Use instead: unreal, ignorant, wild, unbelieveable, unreasonable, different, dipstick, fool, uninformed, malicious, unstable, unreliable.
Disclaimer: you can still be ableist while using these suggested words, and you can also be someone who suffers from internalized ableism and uses the harmful words, either ironically, or as an act of reclaimation.

I'm well and truly sorry that it's not as simple as voting for a certain person, I really am. It would be absolutely fantastic if we had worked out a way to simplify the world's problems into getting a majority of people to make the correct choice and pull a lever. But that's not how this works, that's not how any of this works.

And just like that here we are again. Windows updated last week! It was so nice! Search worked! And my fingerprint reader worked for the first time in almost a month!

But nooooo one week later the synaptics driver is broke again what the fuck.

Saying "you can object to eugenics on moral grounds, but you can't prove that it doesn't work" is advocating for eugenics. Any notion that eugenics could or could not "work" is built on the assumptions that there is a correlation between the methods of eugenics and their stated outcomes, and that said outcomes could potentially be desirable.

Bruh why do operating systems suck I (genuinely) like Windows except some part of my computer is always broken, but I refuse to have a mac. Also Linux appears to be entirely inacessable of you don't know how to code and don't have time to learn, also - lacking in ease of use in general.

I just want something that isn't eternally broken and has the ease of Windows and also that doesn't make me login to everything.

(This is mostly just complaint because Im in college and can't risk losing everything on my computer loading a new system rn. But I'm always open to suggestion)

A WISHING WELL BUT IN REVERSE. A HOLE IN THE GROUND SPITS A NICKEL AT YOU AND TELLS YOU TO SOLVE WORLD HUNGER

I know some of y'all are way more techie than I (and that is why you're on this way out of the way platform) but I just found out about Kai os and this shit is cool, if it works well!

Given the importance of having a smartphone in a current era where everything including my work schedule is in an app - repurposing cheaper tech seems like a way to go.

If you are looking for a relatively new instance on the fediverse with either a bit of a tech or an art flavor.. consider giving kafuka.me a try! We run a variant of Mastodon called Mastodon Glitch 3.1.0 (with an ever evolving tweak set of our own).We also have the larger image size limit of 2560x2560px.

We're run by a friendly professional staff! We update regularly and try to add new emoji and themes when time allows! We hope you'll give us a try!

the best thing about “be gay do crimes” is that it encourages people to be gay and also to do crimes.
