Pinned ping

politics mood, - 

i'm so tired of seeing otherwise cool and smart people completely lose their minds whenever partisan (or intra-partisan) politics come about.

this applies to everyone, no matter if socialist, progressive, liberal, centrist, conservative or anything else.

Pinned ping

hey.

if i ever make any of you feel uncomfortable with my online behavior, please just tell me to stop instead of silently blocking or muting me.

...i don't have the best social skills :-(

mastodon is the only service i've seen where i want to fall in love with half of the people and become good friends with the other half. ^_^

gonna try installing codimd on my mini-server. it seems like a decent variant on the whole etherpad idea that also supports authentication?

too bad there's no @satanic_temple_@twitter.com branch in russia (tho judging by how even jehovah's witnesses are treated like terrorists right now, that might be too dangerous to do)

i'm not a fan of the fruit company's devices, but i gotta say: computers and smart devices definitely need to be made in more colors

why the heck would an online store offer a digital copy of a book in EPUB format, but only restrict the purchase to u.s.-based billing addresses?

gotta love that i only know about a couple of sci-fi writers on the "support the vietnam war" list (left), and quite a few more on the "oppose the vietnam war" one (right).

job search for Linux sysadmin, boost+ :boost_ok:​ 

Dear friends,

I’m a Brazilian immigrant and trans woman, looking for a new job in Germany. Been doing Linux sysadmin’ing since 2001. I have experience also with programming, tech writing and translation.

The job needs to be registered locally in Germany. I’m living in the country since 2017, and I can commute in the NRW area or work remotely.

I’m fluent in English, know Japanese, and my German is currently at B2.

For CV and personal info DM me.

Thanks everybody for boosts and references!

speaking of, can i just say: the flag of d.c. kicks ass?

uspol, 51st state plan 

so apparently since the seat of government still has to be part of no state, the actual proposal separates a tiny part of d.c. to serve that purpose specifically, but turns all the parts where people _live_ into a new state…

what if: a symbol that specifically represents non-authoritarian socialists?

politics opinion 

sovereign citizens, freemen on the land, etc. are very wrong. they believe that just by saying the right words, they will somehow be exempt from paying taxes or following traffic rules.

their beliefs are based on conspiracy theories that make no sense.

but the core idea of "people can get away with crimes by saying the right words" is kinda true. a good lawyer definitely can make it so much harder even for a truly guilty person to be proved guilty in a court (and by itself, it's not a bad thing imo). this especially applies to big companies with huge legal departments, whose every action is usually done with "what if we get sued?" in mind at the very start. poor people can't call a lawyer every time before they do anything tho.

i would have way more sympathy for them if they weren't mostly right-wing libertarians who mostly want to not pay taxes and ignore driving rules...

it's weird that, with all the evil things the c.i.a. actually did or wanted to do, people also want to pin the j.f.k. assassination or 9/11 on them

like, you already have plenty of well-documented actual conspiracies, adding on stuff like that only discredits you

us geography 

this has nothing to do with politics, but come on, who the heck named a city right next washington d.c. "mount rainier" even though there's already a mount rainier in washington state? did they specifically aim to confuse people as much as possible?
