I like messing with Linux/Free Software, electronics, decentralized networks, encryption, making musical instruments, seizing the means of production, and yelling at cops.

I also like helping people when I can, but a lot of the time it feels like I'm the one in need of help.

PSA, things about interacting with me, mild MH stuff. 

I hesitate to self-DX just because I don't know, what if I'm wrong and I end up mistreating myself, or taking space away from someone who *actually has* a condition? So I won't put a name on it. But my vague guess is that there's Something Going On With Me that makes social interactions with me seem not-quite-right. So I just want to put this out there.

I do not interact to "get a rise out of people". That's not fun for me. I am sincerely never trying to bother, be a pain in the ass, creep on, or annoy anyone.

If I reply to something you post, it's simply because I have something to say about it. I am never trying to "logical debate" you. I hate that shit. I am never hitting on you. If I reply to something you say that seems tangential or knit-picky, that's just me being unintentionally asinine, and I'm not as mad as I might appear to be.

I think that covers most of the bases.

That said, if you're a Nazi/bigot, fuck you.

Work is where you spend a third of your life, but it doesn't even come close to a third of who you are as a person.

Work is what facilitates you to be/come who you are outside of work, and that's actually a fucked up situation.

There shouldn't have to be any kind of transaction involved in you being yourself.

repairing vs patching 

Gradually realizing the difference between a repair and a.. "patch"? "Workaround"? I'm still trying to find the right words.

An illustrative example:

- Repair: fixing something that's broken such that it works basically as well as before (or better!).

- "Patch": restoring baseline functionality, but perhaps you need to remember to wiggle the thing first, or the other thing is now super finnicky, or you need to hold it at an awkward angle, or you need to re-patch it again in a couple of weeks.

Does this resonate with any of y'all? Interested in terminology & general thoughts re: how y'all approach repairs!

BTW, I'm pretty sure the white things are actually seed *pods*. They eventually open up and release the actual seeds, which are similarly gnarly

The real question is how are cats going to sabotage VR?

I always thought I knew what people were talking about when contrasting birdsite with here.

I didn't.

It's bad over there.

seeing a lot of new ppl here posting their art, which is great :blobcatlove: !

but most of those pictures don't have captions, which is not great :blobcatglaredrink:

captioned pictures are a big part of the culture here, much more than they are on twitter, so if you have the spoons it would be greatly appreciated if you would caption your pics

some of us, myself included, go so far as to avoid boosting posts that don't have captions, and I'd really like to boost the art I've seen today!

NFTs are about money, not art. They do not serve the best interests of artists, and it's increasingly common to hear of artists who've had their art stolen by NFT sites. If you're thinking of getting into NFTs, *please* research thoroughly to avoid getting scammed.
