Does anyone have any thoughts on how to broach the topic of "I want to go out raving/dancing more but we don't have loads of extra money and I know you're not keen on it and spending our money on joint fun is probably *better*" with my partner?
I wish there was a step-by-step guide to this kind of stuff but it's super specific and idk my brain is just flailing around going "your body needs to dance and it would really help me too". Idk.

Also neurotypical people: My partner won’t let my son have a Peppa Pig lunchbox because it’s pink and pink is for girls.
Hey friends, does anyone know of any "mutual aid" type apps or websites (UK based please) out there?
My own mutual aid website/idea is still in the very early stages of set-up and I'm kinda feeling the strain of life atm. 😔
Deaf/deaf, hard of hearing stuff Show more
Hey friends, do I know anyone in the UK who's Deaf/deaf or hard of hearing (or who knows someone who is)?
I'm starting to finally accept (after 5-ish years wearing a hearing aid) that I'm partially deaf and really want to start learning BSL to better communicate in noisy environments and stuff but like idk where to start looking.
I Googled it but all I'm finding are massively expensive courses and website links that send me in circles. 😕
Posting this again because Jake is brilliant (and it is relevant to something I'm trying to do)
Friends in the UK..... Cheap, reliable, no installation (or at least weekend installation) broadband providers?
Hey friends (especially #tech folks), I wanna take this arduino project (link below) and change it up so that its continually vibrating but the frequency (I guess?) changes depending on the time of the day. Do you reckon it would be possible?
Ideally I'd love a watch where the output is just continual haptic feedback but idk whether or not the changes in frequency would be too subtle to feel?

I want to get involved with more remix and dj competitions but my executive functions means I forget to check the main places very often and I'd love to find a way I can get notifications (either app based or maybe e-mail idk?) when competitions are posted. Any ideas?
Obviously I could just turn the bass up but that would ruin the mix when heard on a "decent" system.
I'm thinking that maybe adding something subtle around the 500hz point might work but like I cut all my other sounds at 300hz so they don't interfere with my bass so this idea is probably counter-productive.
Hey friends, I'm making a google sheet* and I'm wondering if there's a similar function to "countif" or "sumif" except it auto populates cells in a different tab if one column contains x?
Like "copy all columns and rows from sheet 1 IF column B equals X"
In my case "X" will be a location (bedside table or wardrobe but that's not super important to know)
(*I'd use excel but eventually I want it to be accessible to me and my partner via nfc)
Hey #tech folks, does anyone know of a way to get my xml file to stop putting each column on a new row in Excel? Coz it's fucking annoying and I know nothing about XMl stuff.
Alternatively, if you know how to create an XSL template and wouldn't mind helping me create one then hit me up!
I've been spending a fair bit of time thinking about anarchy and ways that it can be applied to the capitalist society that I live in but I keep drawing blanks.
Anyone for any ideas on how I can engage in some "practical anarchy"?
Memory issues, potential for gas lighting, relationships Show more
Hey folks, what do you do if two people in a relationship both have memory issues and occasionally argue about whether someone said x or y?
Also what do you do if one of the people has a family history of psychosis and has a much more emotionally charged reason for being right all the time?
Hey friends, I've got a much more aesthetically pleasing and easier to understand/fill in form asking the same questions as the spreadsheet I posted earlier! Please share this around and let's get neurotypical folks answering so I can so "scientific" research on what makes NT's tick and how best to get them to help disabled folks to get scary/difficult/hard/pointless shit done!
