Pronouns: He/Him or They/Them

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.

painted nudity 

if anyone wants this painting, it’s $20 with free shipping if you’re in the US. it's a lot more vibrant in person but my camera wouldn't capture it for some reason. the eyes of the ghosts are metallic gold.

On the up-side, Aurora Borealis is back.

That means we're coming out of the Solar Minimum.

That means sunspots are coming back.

That means skip propagation on the 10 Meter amateur radio bands.

That means longer range radio contacts.

Where can I buy a bunch of good thick socks and blankets for folk who need such things, for cheap, but with a minimum of using labor exploited from the same sorta folk who the socks and blankets'll go to? if that makes sense.

Arecibo's antenna have fallen into the dish.

Active in-system radioastronomy is now not a capability humans have.

stupid email game 

I've ended up playing a game with myself where I try to get the number of messages in my Trash folder over a certain number by finding old messages to delete.

My email client deletes messages that have been in Trash for over 30 days, so if I don't do anything the Trash dips below that satisfying round number. So I start trying to keep it up by searching for, e.g. old Facebook notifications, old newsletters, etc, so I can delete them.

I'm justifying this stupid game by telling myself that it must be reducing my carbon footprint, because this junk costs energy to store!

I started out trying to get over 600, then 700, and now I have over 900 messages in the Trash and of course I'm trying to get it over a thousand...

Better that the whole economy crashes and burns than that you risk your life or the lives of wage laborers to participate in today's shopping frenzy.

And if lives depend on the same economy that endangers and exploits us, all the more reason for revolution.

not to be petty but i strongly dislike the "lgb-tea" meme / cutesy buttons bc the T is the letter that gets turned into a pun

My anti-masker boss 

My anti-mask boss yesterday: "this is how i'm not getting COVID." *shows me a bottle of vitamin C + Elderberry gummies*

Me: *shaking my head*

Boss: "what, you don't believe in it?"

Me: "No, it's not that. I take vitamins and I grow elderberries at home. But that's not how that works."

Boss: "but it's good for your immune system."

Me: "It might help some things, but it can't stop infection."

What I wish I said: 1. "It helps your immune system, but if you have don't have antibodies for COVID, your immunity is still be zero." 2. "You know what *would* help? Wearing a fucking mask."

Boss: "well, you can only do what you can do."

🤦‍♂️
