Pinned toot

Hey, everyone. Check out this awesome portrait I got from a resident of SpinDizzy MUCK:

I feel like communities have mostly been replaced with Discord servers and they're inherently hard to find unless you know someone. Not a huge fan of having to join and announce your presence to have a look around either.

Just found a with the best slogan ever: "Turns out you can write whatever you want in HTML."

If you want to see love in the universe you've got to make it.

the “freedom to choose the company you work for” is a cudgel used to browbeat discontent workers and doesn’t actually exist, because “none” isn’t an option if you desire to continue living

I have a new friend! They're a cool kid who writes pretty good fantasy already at 16. Interesting life story, too. Our little circle is widening.

The frequency with which people assume I'm trans because I visibly support trans people, call out transphobia, etc. just shows how ingrained it is that problems of marginalized folks are not issues for the privileged. People gotta care more about serious issues that don't affect them directly

When you're talking about Linux, it's okay to say that it's "open source".

It's okay to say that it's "free software".

It's okay to call it "GNU/Linux", "Linux", or to mess up its name.

It's okay to refer to it as "the one with the friendly penguin".

Part of RMS' legacy has been an incessant obsession with terminology and pedantry, overshadowing far more important shared objectives which are fundamentally emancipatory in nature.

Pedantry is not activism; it is alienating, not emancipatory.

Deleting old internet accounts you don't use or need anymore is rather cathartic.

Ain't this mug lovely? A friend of mine shared this pic with me to uplift my mood. She says this smiling kitty mug always makes her smile. I hope this pic makes all of you smile, too. :blobcat:

Capitalism rewards innovation (sometimes), but consistently punishes robustness.

Capitalism tends towards tiny margins. Systems will be stretched to the absolute limits daily and are completely incapable of coping with anything beyond that.

Robustness include redundancy and spare capacity. No robust system can compete in the 21st century free for all of unregulated capitalism.

Meanwhile, neoliberalism demands that every system essential for human life be removed from governments and given over to capitalism. We call this democracy, but it seems more like a Divine Right of Oligarchs.

I hear people are at it again, claiming nobody over 30 has any business being a . Um, really? I wasn't even in the fandom until the age of 32. And a half.

With each passing day, it becomes more clear to me that people who "aren't creative" are more accurately described as "too burnt out from work/life to create".

One quick trick to instantly improve all of your social-media interactions: when someone is expressing frustration, they're almost always looking for commiseration, not help. If they want help, they'll ask for it.

delete & redraft is better than twitter's setup but i'd prefer just flat-out editing

There are 4 kinds if Mastodon users

Happy Shiny Day! May it be as sparkly as you could hope.

Original art by Hornbuckle,

Shiny Day's a chance to reflect and dazzle. It's the oldest holiday on SpinDizzy muck, a small, mostly furry, text-based roleplay-and-social-hangout city in space:

Really dislike how all of the “daylight savings is bad, actually” initiatives focus around making DST permanent. That just makes things even HARDER on those of us with delayed sleep cycle issues (such as pretty much anyone with ADHD).

DST should be abolished, not made permanent.
