Y'know you don't have to go pro, it's totally valid to not be super good at everything! Capitalism got us thinking we have to make money at everything but honestly if you just have amateurnouns that's okay

i don’t hate technology, i just think we shouldn’t force it on people who never asked for it

the world, both in the private and public sector and even socially, is becoming very in‌accessible to people without a recent android or apple phone. this MUST be stopped.

maybe not everyone wants to be a cyborg

Follow-up: Opera now thinks *Wikipedia Mobile* is a malware site. makers stop trying to "protect" us challenge 2022.

malthusianism is wrong.

it has always been wrong.

it will always be wrong.

“overpopulation” is a classist, racist MYTH created by white capitalist imperialists and the bullshit artists who support them.

More cis people should realize that "legal name" and "real name" are two wholly different things, and that someone's real name is something only they themselves should decide.

happy disability month! friendly reminder that accessibility doesn't mean "wheelchair ramps" it means well kept stairs and a well kept public transit system and it means in general for you to have as many valid ways of using a given service, which under capitalism also means, for some reason, doing a job in as many valid ways as possible but it also means wheelchair ramps and allowing people of all sorts and any type to use all accessibility tools without judgement

„Imagine you are working on your novel on your home computer. It’s nearly finished; you have already written approximately one million words. All of a sudden, the online word processing software tells you that you can no longer open the draft because it contains illegal information. Within an instant, all your words are lost.“ technologyreview.com/2022/07/1

Jon Kudelka in today’s Saturday Paper. I’m done with bickering. I just want shit fixed. Jon says it more eloquently than me, that’s all.

Finally yielded and upgraded my . The latest Opera no longer runs on my operating system; luckily, they keep old versions around, and I grabbed one from just before Debian 11 came out (almost a year ago), which seems to work fine.

Dear web developers: stop breaking the web every few months to save 10 lines of code.

The first image from the James Webb Space Telescope (#JWST). From NASA,

"This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground."

In that little speck, I don’t know, maybe a thousand galaxies, each with perhaps 100,000,000,000 stars, and all that in a patch of sky too small to even pay attention to.

there should be no guilt in unfinished projects. you can always go back to finish it later. and even if you never do, it was still good practice for the next project!

Let some things be ephemeral.

Sometimes, you don't need to preserve everything.
