Howdy! Trans women are women, trans men are men, non binary people exist and their pronouns are to be respected, even if you don't like the person.

I'm in my 30's and a communist, with a lean towards Full Automation and Intersectionality.

I did a test a long time ago that called my social media style "curator" and I think that's accurate. I won't often post my own thoughts, choosing instead to boost the words of others. Boosts are definitely endorsements.

I'm cis, white, male, a uni drop-out, and a software developer both by trade and hobby. I also play a lot of video games in my spare time.

Nightmares 

I finally woke up a few minutes ago after I was trying to help one woman on a girls night out by suggesting a board game and when she lit up and said great I knew I didn't have one on me and that's what threw me awake like a pilot pulling the ejector seat cord and I absolutely do not want to go back to sleep anymore.

But I kept sleeping and then I had to tell a whole crowd of people (who had been disappointed the previous day after something similar happened with another act) that I had to abandon the set about thirty minutes early and they were all pissed and I was scrambling to find an alternative because I had ruined nights out and people were stuck there.

I do not like the escalation if I don't wake up.

I really felt tonight like I could have woken up at half 2 after a dream about running a pretty successful, if high stress, comedy gig.

But I kept sleeping and started setting up a routine that I knew I couldn't finish because I was missing something important.

Good news: It's no longer my job to take attendance!

Now all I have to do is obtain a alphanumeric code that's only temporarily valid and correctly transcribe it onto a white board. Then every student will have to take out their own internet capable device and connect to the university website and correctly transcribe the code into their account! Magic!

I have been running into a situation where I keep using "RTX" to refer to hardware raytracing acceleration, but this is misleading because RTX is actually NVidia's trademark for their specific implementation and sometimes you want to contrast NVidia with AMD. To solve this, I would like to propose we now refer to the underlying technology as "HRT", for "Hardware Raytracing". "Within ten years all gamers will have access to HRT", et cetera

American TV News Did More Stories on Queen Elizabeth II in the Past 2 Weeks Than on Climate Change in the Past 2 Years

A survey of CNN, CBS News, NBC News, and ABC News finds 425 individual stories about Queen Elizabeth II’s death since Sept 7—and 331 total stories on Climate Change since Sept 2020.

Me and coworkers: Chatting around the virtual water cooler, dunking on cryptocurrencies.

Me: Yeah, and then you start mining like... "ScamCoin" or whatever the next new thing is...

The Internet: Actually, that's real, and at one point was work about $70million.

Fuck this planet, man.

Wife of a country singer makes anti-trans jab; another country singer, Maren Morris, calls her out on it. Tucker Carlson weighs in, calling Maren a "lunatic country music person".

Maren then used that quote on a t-shirt, with all proceeds going to Trans Lifeline and GLAAD.

"Just two hours later, Morris said the shirt had raised $63,000, and on Saturday, she said the total had surpassed $100,000."

Praxis. =:D

A mention appeared and disappeared that seemed to call me a flag shagger!

I would like to state for the record that the only flag I've ever been intimate with was the Progress Pride flag and that it ended several months before I met my spouse, to whom I have been unflag(shag)gingly faithful for these past several years.

You don't need to join mastodon.social or any other big servers on here.

Big servers do not mean big audiences on the Fediverse. Because federated servers talk to each other seamlessly, the number of people you can interact with is similar whether you're on a large or small server. Some people even run their own single user servers where they are literally the only member, yet they are able to interact with just as many people as a user on a megaserver like mastodon.social.

Mastodon and the wider Fediverse were designed so that their users could be spread out across many different servers, specifically so that the network couldn't be taken over by malevolent billionaires. By choosing a smaller server, you help keep the network safe from any takeovers. Smaller servers also tend to be better moderated and have better tech support because they have a lot more staff per user.
