Pinned toot

Unconditional empathy and understanding for literally everyone is pretty fucking punk because nobody is doing it.

I've been crunching on trying to get a writing assignment done these last few days, but since it's left me feeling burned out despite not making any substantial progress, today I'm going to take some time to work on my personal projects and then later try to finish it before my deadline.

Don't get shamed into disabling your adblocker to "support creators".
Ads pay so little, it really doesn't matter.
If you want to do the financial support, just donate to them. That is the equivalent of multiple thousand ad views.

"Supporting the devs" is not a concept that applies to AAA games. The only people making money off sales are the publisher and executives, not the artists, coders and other staff. Who, as we know, are likely to get laid off regardless of how sales go.

Save that stuff for small studios, they're the ones actually operating at small margins.

I wanted to take this time to once again thank every single being on fedi that posts pictures, even mundane ones, with image descriptions. Thank you for describing your screenshot, your drawing, your selfie, your cat. Seriously. Thank you. I'm not sure if you realize how much that means to me.

Thank you Justice Ginsburg, for your service to our nation. We won't let you down. #RBG

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies at 87. The Supreme Court justice was a legal pioneer for gender equality.

You should be able to use and program now matter how spy worthy it is. We are not China after all. Tik tok and whatsapp is trash but you should be able to use it regardless.

@Shufei They have both blind trust and understanding of tech. Whenever I read anything about this I can't help but laugh.. nanomachines, AI, von neuman satellite, are you fucking kidding me, we can't even manufacture a bluetooth speaker that works consistently.

Their flying cars are gonna run on electron, their prosthetic limbs will randomly reboot, their embrace in technological know-how would be inspiring, if it wasn't so deluded.

I would like to get back to working on JRNY once the deluge of writing assignments stops. For now it has to sit in it's sourcehut repository and wait for me to finish school stuff. 🙃

Sometimes when I have a strong opinion about a discussion going on on the fediverse that's all the more reason to just let it slide on by without opening my mouth.

One idea that always stuck with me, is that 'powerful people don't need to shout'. Along the same lines, people who are actually confident and well rounded don't need to talk about how great they are all the time. It gives interesting context to the bloviating fascist dictators like mussolini and trump, who must dickwave at every opportunity.

u/ForceBlades on Reddit about the TikTok ban

I strongly dislike the platform but next it could be Wikipedia and everyone will care. For that reason I have to care for this today.

I DID IT!! Actually very surprised and proud that I stuck with it this time. Especially with everything going on.

Alright, I made some progress. No yelling at me today, internet!

In other news, I've almost finished setting up the skeleton of my gopherhole's structure, and should hopefully get it up on tomorrow. I'm not completely sure what to do with it, but I will probably use it to put out long-form essays/rants/stories I couldn't fit on Mastodon.

@georgespolitzer What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in Turkey

I am dumb to tech but I still use it. I think it's supposed to be made to be accessible to everyone, it's why Linux and tech bros anger me so much because they want to make it super exclusive but treat you like an idiot for not getting it or always being able to do literally everything yourself.

Stop trying to push Linux onto everyone, it was never made for everyone. Open source doesn't mean openly accessible

Welp, started a new side project: I've started remaking an obscure flash game from my childhood in Godot. It's an incredibly simple game and I've already learned most of the skills I need to do it from my main Godot project, so this shouldn't take too long to complete. ^_^

Me: please rain
