bad Stardew valley mod idea, mental health 

Also things like walking, carrying items in your inventory, bad weather and more would all cost spoons.

The game would be literally unplayable but on some days, life seems like that too

Could be useful to explain the concept of spoons though

bad Stardew valley mod idea, mental health 

Stardew Valley mod that renames energy to spoons and makes it so that talking with people also costs spoons (less if you’ve got a high friendship level) and you wake up with a semi randomized amount each day.

This would actually be terrible if I think about it.

"hot" take 

One of my high points for this year is how I’m seeing a lot more hacktivism than what I’m used to.

One of the low points is that I continue seeing fascists defend themselves by saying they don’t encourage anyone to break the law.

"hot" take 

Legality and morality are completely detached concepts that happen to have some overlap in what they apply to

I don’t even like RedHat as a company ffs.

I think paywalling documentation is a really shitty thing to do.

It’s just that they are still so much better than actual fascists and their software is actually useful.

Even worse still: some people, who will jump into any conversation as soon as something maintained by RedHat is mentioned to yell about how much they hate RedHat, seem to feel personally attacked when someone mentions that one should probably avoid any software by suckless.

Also rofi is _so_ much better than dmenu either way :p

tech(bros), fascism 

People will claim ideological reasons for not using anything maintained by RedHat and then continue to not see anything wrong with using software made by literal fascists because "it’s not a political issue" and I think that is a great example for what is wrong with our community.

gamers 

Pokémon "Fans" when a Game reuses assets to save development time and get it done quicker: "wow, just a cheap asset flip. Did you see how crap that tree texture looks? Literally unplayable"

Pokémon "Fans" when a Game has a new art style they aren’t used to: "What is this? A game for kids? Looks like shit. Literally unplayable"

I think "I love you more than Pokémon fans hate Pokémon" is just as romantic as the same sentence but with Star Wars.

If people just spent a fraction of the energy they use to yell at game devs to fight capitalism, the world would be a better place.

torture, kickstarter, neurotypicals, change.org link, suicide mention, long 

They have "taken action" but the project is still up so I doubt they’ve actually done anything.

Maybe if more people keep reporting, this shit may still be removed and their funding rejected.

video game, sleep, pain 

I just fell asleep on top of it in a really awkward position and now the entire left side of my body hurts but it was worth it for cuddling a Mario kart banana

quantum computing, bad legislation 

Today I finally somewhat understood information transmission via quantum entanglement, why it won’t bring faster internet speeds and why it’s still not useless because it makes unnoticeable spying on that communication impossible.

My first thought was that I wonder how long it will take until Australia and the EU make it illegal.

torture, kickstarter, neurotypicals, change.org link, suicide mention, long 

Why is torturing neurodiverse children not only legal but socially acceptable?

Show thread

torture, kickstarter, neurotypicals, change.org link, suicide mention, long 

Kickstarter is hosting a product that parents of neurdiverse children are supposed to stick on their child's back.

That device will then beep every 8 seconds which is supposed to help the child to focus.

As a neurodiverse person, I can tell you that this device would not only ruin every chance of me focusing on anything, being forced to wear it would make me kill myself. I am not exaggerating here.

This is one of the worst forms of torture aimed directly at neurodiverse people I could imagine.

Here's a change.org petition to stop the sale of this: change.org/p/kickstarter-stop-

I doubt the petition will do much but the campaign does explicitly break a rule on kickstarter banning the sale of medical devices so maybe reporting it (it is linked in the petition) might help.

work + (I am very privileged in this aspect) 

Just started my first four day work week and while I really enjoy what I will be doing at this job, I’m also really looking forwards to having more time to do my own thing on the weekends.

mastodon filters 

I’ve started using filters somewhat heavily which means half my tl is just a "post has been filtered" message over and over but I also can open this site without feeling worse than before

Apparently keyword filters don’t work on image descriptions which is too bad :/
