I’ve just signed and sealed my letter to the PM, Boris Johnson @10DowningStreet@twitter.com, urging him to finally put his money where his mouth is and deliver real change for British trans* people + esp. youth who have for too long been utterly failed.

hasakl tech tip
need to do some dev stuff that needs capabilities like binding to a privileged port, or managing wireguard interfaces, without using sudo (because you don't trust your program not to fuck up root access. also it's security)?
systemd-run can do it (systemd-run can do literally anything. you'd be surprised)
systemd-run --pty -S -pAmbientCapabilities=CAP_NET_ADMIN -pUser=$USER -pGroup=$USER
systemd-run creates an ephemeral unit
--pty hooks it up to the current terminal
-S starts a shell as the process
-p sets a property
AmbientCapabilities=CAP_NET_ADMIN gives the unit the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability. you may also be interested in stuff like CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE and CAP_NET_RAW
User=$USER and Group=$USER runs it under your actual user instead of as root

The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!
It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

Delighted to announce that I've been appointed The Programming Language Decider by a semi-prominent developer*; I decide whether something is or is not a programming language.
My first decree is that everything is a programming language and they're all bad.
