RT @autistictudor@twitter.com: Low functioning or high functioning or severe or mild autism are not things.
FFS when will folk get that.

I was called ‘severely autistic’ and ‘someone with mild autism’ in the same day. About 5 hours apart.

Functioning labels are bullshit. Stop using them

We all need a free alternative to YouTube!

PeerTube is a decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software.

PeerTube is currently in beta version, that's why @Framasoft needs your help to pave the road to version 1.0!

If you haven’t switched to duckduckgo yet what convinced me was when @amsomniac showed me the !bangcodes

Basically if you start a ddg search with something like !ebay or !wiktionary it searches that site directly after being anonymized through ddg’s server. So rather than have different search engines in my browser I select it’s just !w for Wikipedia or !translate for google translate

You can even do !g and do an anonymous untracked google search

Today I turned off my computer and did other things. It has been kind of nice. I would like to learn how to use the computer more purposefully, since I easily lose my place and just aimlessly do things instead of making plans and executing them.

Want to try out Plasma Mobile? We have an ISO you can use. Try it using VirtualBox, QEMU or a real device and send us feedback.

Note that this image is prepared for x86-64-based devices, so it probably will NOT work on your phone (unless you have a very special phone). Remember: This is preview software, so it is not ready for production yet and we can guarantee things WILL break.

First hands-on experience with Plasma Mobile. Apart from defending our user rights and fighting for a system, @kdecommunity offers a really interesting UI/UX paradigm. mastodon.technology/media/h3BZ

this little platformer game video made me laugh more than I have at anything in a while twitter.com/P_MEN876/status/95

TFW you have to do normal human things like finding a job and do everyday maintenance but struggle going through morning routine like having coffee and brushing your teeth.
