"Men, women, and enbies" still doesn't include everyone.
Enby is not a gender in itself, but rather a descriptor for many kinds of gender that are outside the m/f binary.
There are other genders that don't even reference this binary. There are genders from other cultures that function totally differently.
Plz listen to the folks saying this - enby is not and should not be "third gender" or a catchall for "other"

Hey developers, just so you know, it is not that I'm "religiously opposed to using electron for any and all purposes".
It's just that my CPU is old and I'd like to be able to run more than 2 programs at once and if they're built on electron I probably won't be able to.
music making advice request
If I were to buy a single mic for making music, what would be a good mic to get? Does anyone have any suggestions?

“It’s about doing the one little thing you can do, even if it’s useless: planting seeds in the midst of the apocalypse, spitting on a wildfire, bailing out the ocean with a bucket.

@dankwraith eugen seems to think the handful of people talking in github threads about mastodon are somehow representative of his instance's userbase even though:
1. theres way too few people for that to be true
2. most of those people on github are probably on other instances
Linux (or GNU plus Linux etc.) has its issues, but it has the following properties WHICH I CANNOT BELIEVE I CANNOT TAKE FOR GRANTED ON A PC OPERATING SYSTEM
- 10 seconds after I select "Shut Down", the PC is off
- 10 seconds after I turn the PC on, I have access to a usable interface
- 10 hours after I walk away from it, the PC is still running the same session with the same applications
- 10 months after installation, all the same applications still run on the PC
