there's so much empty space everywhere, you'd think with all this wealth tied up in real estate things would feel busier but it just feels like landowners are hanging on for dear life everywhere instead of letting anyone actually use anything. it feels like our whole society is just desperately clinging on to the illusion that property value means anything

like to me it is obvious that urban blight is directly linked to real estate becoming a speculative instrument completely divorced from any material reality but our political class obviously does not agree

I think imma bring back "daemon" as jargon.

bad Linux joke 

(actually they're probably the enterprise types that distribute checklists that teams have to tick off to assert that their projects are Secure™)

As an information security enthusiast, I know who white hats are and who black hats are but I haven't quite figure out the Red Hats yet

Assemble a Lego kit? He's in.
Knit? He's in.
Put together a jigsaw puzzle? He's in.

Trying to browse the Internet? He's in.
Trace a pattern? He's in.
Do product photography on a black velvet object that you have laboriously picked every white hair off of? He's totally in.
Distribute a neighborhood newsletter? He's in.

some people need to learn that suffering is sometimes just pointless.

There's people who will tell you things like poverty, racism, disability, etc will make you a better person or inculcate you with some kind of higher knowledge.

Some shit just sucks, we were lucky to survive it, and arguing that it ennobled us somehow is really just a way of saying you have no interest in stopping it from happening to others

Ok, made a GoFundMe for Oreo. I set it at $1,000 in case she needs surgery. She definitely needs a wheelchair. I can't keep carrying her outside (she weighs 60lbs) as it triggers my tachy. If you all could share, that would be helpful.

every time you go to plug something in your robot catgirl is *right there* and you have to be like "no you have your own power supply, scootch!" and give her some pets and then probably forget what you were doing before because catgirl snuggly good~

we need to stop using the language of capitalism to justify the conscious decision to not make software accessible. there are no “market forces.” there’s just the people you listened to, and the people you ignored.

A dragon whispers at you quietly from the shadows. “Pssst. You lookin for the goods?”

“The... goods?” You ask nervously.

He looks around as if checking for witnesses, then steps out of the shadows and spreads his wings, revealing countless kobolds clinging to the undersides of his wings. He motions to them with his claws. “Yes, are they not good, each and every one?” He smiles like a parent about to gush about his children, and you wonder what you have gotten yourself into.

Hello Fediverse, and and especially PeerTube's admins.

One year ago, I've found neo-nazi content on the instance I was using.
So I realized that right-wing groups have created PeerTube instances or are using unmoderated ones to spread their hate speech.

This content federates on other instances.

I list them here, making it easier to isolate them and their content to protect us.

The list : peertube_isolation.frama.io/li

---

You can help by reporting instances to this account.

You can follow this account to get update about this list (theses will be under a content warning).

If you are a #PeerTubeAdmin you can use @peertube auto mute plugin with this list.

You can find the documentation of the auto mute plugin here: framagit.org/framasoft/peertub
