This is Voffi. One of the causes for the name is that when it was small, i thought it looked like a dog, but actually now that we see it in its natural orientation, it should be obvious that it rather looks like a bat. To be fair, many bats look a bit like dogs, too. #kitten

If I needed a shorthand for Lesbians Who Tech and why it’s bad, I now have one and it’s “they unironically have invited Sundar Pichai to their summit”

These "but commutes are good actually!" articles are really cheesing me off. They all boil down to people enjoying dedicated break time where they have no work or personal responsibilities. You don't need a commute for that, you need boundaries.

People should never be edge cases.

If your system fails because a person cannot hear sounds, your system is broken. If it fails because a person has no address, it’s broken. If it fails because their phone number comes from another country, it’s broken. If it fails because of all the reasons above, it’s still broken.

Edge cases happen, but human beings don’t deserve to find themselves in one.

Begpost, had our benefits stripped 

If you could spare some coin, we really need to eat n pay bills, and we've been stripped of our income entirely until we get it reinstated or I manage to get on PIP (disability) or something

tech gripe 

I wish there was even just one decent standalone email client on linux that didn't feel like a relic from the 90s.

Yes, email itself is a relic, but come on.

OK, just set the #repository for the #CGA Redux to public.
I will continue the development out in the open.

It's a clone (or an attempt at one) of the original #IBM Color Graphics Adapter #ISA card.

Enjoy!

mutual aid, begpost, you know what’s up 

as some of you may know I’ve been helping out a friend with homelessness. He’s getting a lot of shit sorted and I’m so proud of him but he needs a ride to the airport so he can move in with his girlfriend. I just need $40 to get him an Uber! So if 4 people could send me $10 or if 5 people could send me $8 that would be so so helpful. I only have like $70 in my bank account total because of moving otherwise I wouldn’t ask! Thank you sm!! #begpost #mutualaid

fact: the catgirl has become less cat over time.

you despise not the catgirl but the commercialized post-2000's catgirl, who was gradually stripped of bestial traits in favor of a fantasy of feminine domesticity
