html, we need to have a talk about how unintuitive actually using checkboxes are in html forms

As Mallory explains, trans rights ARE important but it‘s little good just saying ‘trans rights’, adding pronouns to your bio and ticking your ‘I’m a wonderful ally’ box.

‘Trans rights‘ are foundational to trans liberation; alone they are the absolute bare minimum

I hate the ubiquity of "trans rights" language as a question and as a slogan.

I hate seeing people in YouTube chats saying "hey leftoid, say trans…

We've lowered the pricing for our 30 and 60 GB plans, as well as the optional unlimited calls & texts. 👀

This applies to all of our customers, immediately — we hate offering deals & discounts to new customers at the expense of our existing ones.

Absolutely fed up with this country. My existence is only political because a bunch of hateful individuals make it so, and a lot of the rest of you tolerate their nonsense.

To be honest I’m cautiously optimistic about this inquiry because this government needs to be held accountable for persistently failing trans (and especially non binary) people in the UK

On the other hand, it’s unfair asking us to put even more emotional labour in

If you have access to software or hardware documentation that is proprietary and is otherwise undocumented, it is your duty as a good librepunk to leak it.

This includes API documentation, Verilog, schematics, and source code.

good design: the developers of N++ found that a lot of playtesters felt like they sucked at the game because they kept dying, so they made it so that the demos that play on the title screen are all of the character failing. you'll never see the ninja on the menu reach the exit. it's as if to say "don't worry, you're supposed to die a lot. you'll get there."

hilarious design: as you play the game, those demos get replaced with your own fuckups

where were you when you found out the UK's track and trace software (which cost 12 billion quid) has excel as a backing database

sadly there is a backlog of cases which were untracked because they exceeded the excel row limit

worry not, they have solved the problem and are now using two excel files to keep track of people
