I've downloaded everything from Astronomy Picture of the Day from the start date to the end of 2019 and put it in a torrent.

If you want a load of background pictures, please seed it once you've got a copy.

Please boost and share

Hey friendos! Want to quit Facebook as well? I run a hubzilla instance and you're very welcome to have a look around.

hq.teamrocket.space is open to all left leaning folks of all identities. I'm xmakina@hq.teamrocket.space there, feel free to ask any questions, I know initially it can be a bit much of an interface and not enough content, but I'm hoping enough of you good people will come join up for writing longer shitposts and photo sharing perhaps???

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.

If you don't agree, please don't follow me

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.

The idea that bad instances exploding is somehow not a good thing because the Bad People will join and corrupt Good Instances is kind of bizarre and doesn't hold up to the slightest consideration when you consider that instances on the fediverse are moderated and generally keep track of their new users?

People are correctly pointing out that a contestant on their latest show is a Nazi with 88 and has other literal Nazi tattoos on his actual fucking face

Me: Aight, now let me put on a little bit of 30 Seconds to Mars

Neil deGrasse Tyson: ACTUALLY, the trip takes around seven months; a bit longer than astronauts currently stay on the International Space Station. The precise duration of each journey depends on when it is taken. Because both Mars and Earth's orbits are not perfectly circular, the time it takes to travel between them varies from six to eight months.

July 4, Hawaii, Independence 

Imagine a Native American community who had a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages and ancestor's graves, the people made to do bastardizations of their sacred dances, wear mock 'sexy feather headresses' and entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hours a day 7 days a week, living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that is just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii

Now, if I'm translating an app, and the source language has two options for gender....

That should be translated as "binary" and "nonbinary", right?
