Questions about Star Trek Picard... 

(and of course someone tried the tack that code of conducts are a recent thing and weren't necessary til recently and had no real standing til recently. y'know, that argument)

@privacytools

The other thing I'd like to point out is that @privacytools *has* a Code of Conduct for their matrix room: github.com/privacytoolsIO/.git

I got shouted at by others for linking to it and pointing out that this counts as intolerance. Mod didn't seem to have anything to say about that either way.

There is *NO POINT* to having a code of conduct if you're not going to enforce it. It just gives people a false sense of security.

The ironic thing about being bullied out of this space is that I actually am employed in this sector 😆

transphobia 

@privacytools there's a reason we're not welcome in so many of these communities; I honestly thought PTIO was above that. But in actuality, it's just reddit on matrix :purplesigh:

[reposted to edit visibility]

While a moderator did eventually step in, their role was to make a point that there is a use to stating pronouns, which there is, but they didn't actually handle the situation that led to my leaving the room. Nor any mention of the code of conduct, nor did anyone reach out afterwards.

I’m doing all this zigbee stuff and as much as I like it, the complexity and unreliability of it does sometimes make me miss X10...

So we adopted Dax and Worf (our bunnies) from this young (13-ish?) girl, and she likes to keep in touch so we can send pictures of them and stuff, which is cool.

But the other day she wanted to video call the rabbits and asked if we had WhatsApp. I sent her a message on there and she sent me a step by step guide to video call her.

WAY TO MAKE ME FEEL OLD. 🙃

I may not be a teenager but cmon...

What ever happened to CVE numbers? Why are we naming them all?

Hell, why do they get their own subreddits?

I have a vast music library, but I do use di.fm *a lot*, partly to expand it, and partly because there's a lot of benefit to not being in control of the music when I'm working.

What do you to?

For me it's a whole variety of stuff, from nightcore, to eurodance, to EDM trap... Usually something fairly high energy! I'm looking for suggestions though, so throw me your recommendations <3

I had to give in and open a discord account. I'm not thrilled about it. The number of open-source projects going discord is upsetting as hell.

I'm sandboxing it in the browser very carefully, and not using the native app. But I do not like. 💢

Also, having read it right after watching the newest season of The Expanse put me in one hell of a motivated mood, but that’s another thing.

(There’s far more to it than that, but I really do not want to give too much away. Go read it. Now. Right now.)

Why is Qubes memory management such a pain in the ass? It really shouldn't be this hard.

Seriously though, a bunch of queers running around pirating prescription meds in a world where med patents last longer than people do. With biohackspaces (though they're not called that) and anarchists all over the place? I couldn't get enough. I kind of want to read it again even thought I just finished it.

Has anyone else read ‘Autonomous’? My partner got it for me for Christmas and it’s one of the best books I’ve read in the last couple of years. Highly recommend.
