Pinned post

I have suddenly gone from barely boosting anything to boosting more than I post, so anxiety says I have to point out: you may hide my boosts, there is no way I would know if you did, and I would not be offended even if I did know. okthxbai :blobcat:

Pinned post

Well, since I’ve migrated I should probably do a quick intro again so I have something to pin:

Hi, I’m Sam! I like to lurk but am trying not to. I’m a huge nerd who’s into computers and Dungeons and Dragons, and I love to read.

I’m trying to take myself less seriously, so there’s probably going to be little refinement or effort in what I post unless I’m passionate about it.

finally got around to redesigning my website after taking it down like months ago! I even linked it to my fedi account and everything :3

too bad it's mostly empty right now, lol

the incalculably massive potential of existence has me stunned and paralyzed again

every time I try installing a new operating system for the first time, I always stay up until far past midnight and become intensely frustrated. and yet I keep doing it

please send help, I’m reading all of the plan9 research papers again

Finally got to draw again! It is so much fun to do I just wish I could do some of the stuff I could see here that would be amazing

it is too early for me to be thinking :drgn_cup_drowsy:

bad food idea 

what if I made Mac and Cheese with almond milk

I’ve resorted to calling the owl creatures ‘friendo’ but that hasn’t helped

I’m really impressed that it’s been like months since I last played it but I’m already extremely invested again

It’s finally time to take some control over my life and finish the Outer Wilds DLC

supervisor just gave me a fidget spinner because I won’t stop playing with things on his desk when I stop by to talk with him lol

Cursed knuckle pop 

Somehow managed to pop the ‘carpometacarpal’ joint on my index finger lmao (the knuckle at the very base of my hand… like where it connects to the wrist) so that’s cursed

rant: meta related leftist politics 

Purist leftism demands leftists to be perfect people, and in doing so, often ends up being extremely toxic to non-purist leftists. Also, it's usually puries themselves who are cutting off interaction with non-purist leftists, sometimes throwing them into the same mental category as literal nazis. And defending or even just being friendly with a "cancelled" person makes one evil too from the purist leftist perspective, making people scared to speak out, because they don't want to be forced to choose between purie-adjacent friends or the "cancelled" friends. I'm sick of this leftist infighting. Just because one isn't perfectly aware of and avoiding everything even potentially slightly racist, doesn't make them a full on racist. Someone using the word "based" doesn't make them equal to the average channer. Life isn't black and white, there's many colors between #000000 and #ffffff. There's not just pure people and evil people, and that kind of binary thinking is coincidentally also something that leads to fascism.

Someone having bad takes occasionally doesn't make them a wholly bad person, and excommunicating everyone who has a bad take once is a bad thing. I think it's honestly *fine* if you don't want to interact with someone specific, but please don't drag mutual friends into the drama every time.

Also, expressing nuance on a sensitive topic is not equal to support for the other side.

I sincerely hope that puries see the mistake in their current ways. I'll welcome them on the cool side of leftism.

It’s kind of sad watching chunks of Fedi having to relearn lessons from the 90’s like “running a community website is hard, and the ‘community’ part is harder than the ‘website’ part”

And “any entitled, demanding users in the community will tend to rapidly push the people donating their time and money to run the site to just pack up and quit”

Maybe don’t be a dick to your instance admins and mods — when it’s not worth it to run a community as a volunteer, corps end up doing it for profit, and we’ve already seen how that pans out

starting to think that all I need to be content is some lofi and a rainy night to drive though
