Pinned toot

Stanovanje, LJ (Boost?) 

Moja prijateljica išče garsonjero ali 1-sobno stanovanje za najem v LJ; prevvsem na območju Župančičeve jame, lahko pa tudi v okolici Kotnikove, Resljeve ali Metelkove ulice.
Stanovanje mora biti dostopno z dvigalom, spremljal pa jo bi tudi zelo umirjen in izšolan pes vodnik.
Opravlja magisterski +izredni študij, in potrebuje mirno okolje. Je krasna punca, dobre volje, prijazna in vedoželjna; zasluži si boljši dom, kot je njen trenutni. :(

Nothing I post is so unprecedented that people will still find it useful several years later. There are enough wonderful toots posted every day that there's no reason to backread through my entire profile instead, except perhaps for doxxing purposes.
So, since I like keeping things tidy, I use to delete every post of mine older than 4 months, except for the few that I've decided to keep. If you'd like to do something similar yourself, you can learn more here:

Even if you aren't a scientist, you can still help out with research. For example, would you like to search for black holes, identify wildlife, or save endangered animals? Then you'll love !

Would you like to help out without actually doing anything? That's impossi ... oh right, exists! With it, you can donate unused computing power to projects that investigate diseases, study global warming, discover pulsars, etc.

On blocking 

Block and mute early

Block and mute often

Do it for reasons that are entirely "selfish"

No one is entitled to your attention

There will not be a test

Nothing bad happens if you don't hear them

Too many techbros? Mute 'em all

That one guy's jokes need a CW? Your timeline can be full of other stuff

You can even mute that one person's boosts while keeping their posts

It's not censorship; you're not hurting that person

And you don't ever need to explain it or tell anyone

Probably a good time to mention that the next version of Mastodon will finally make account suspensions reversible (with a separate option to delete data when needed). Been working on that for a few weeks (among other things)

So I was trying to check the progress of my Macbook updating to Big Sur beta 7 with VoiceOver... and this happened.

I wanted to take this time to once again thank every single being on fedi that posts pictures, even mundane ones, with image descriptions. Thank you for describing your screenshot, your drawing, your selfie, your cat. Seriously. Thank you. I'm not sure if you realize how much that means to me.

Don't get shamed into disabling your adblocker to "support creators".
Ads pay so little, it really doesn't matter.
If you want to do the financial support, just donate to them. That is the equivalent of multiple thousand ad views.

request for financial help 

... i hate that i have to ask for help with this, given everything that everyone's dealing with a lot right now, but...

our car was fucking towed by out apartment complex without any reasonable warning and due to the plague (and us not going out often), we just got the notice today from the towing place. They stole our car and it's gonna cost us almost $800 to get it back.
But the worst part, is that our apartment complex did this to us. We desperately want to get out of here; we have a place to go, but it's gonna cost us an obscene amount of money to break the lease (~$3400) on top of our already high rent.

If anybody can help, i'd be immensely grateful.

Recently, we removed Firefox Send because of security concerns and they took the service down. Today, they announced Send is dead.

We will also be removing Lockwise because Mozilla keeps killing projects after adoption, causing headaches for users.

Privacy PSA reminder 

Reminder: In your Mastodon preferences you can choose the default privacy level for your posts.

* Public posts are visible for everyone on the internet, and they'll get posted in the public timelines of your instance. People can boost your posts, but more importantly, trolls can easily spot your posts by checking your instance's public website, even without being logged in. <--- You DO NOT want this.

* Unlisted posts aren’t visible on your timeline, but people can still see them if they know the link. People can still boost your posts if they consider them important enough. <--- This is my default option when I don't post something private.

* Followers-only posts are visible only to your followers, and they CANNOT be boosted. <--- This is the safest option.

(Also, you can change your post's visibility before you actually post it.)

Oh neat TIL

“.gay is a new generic top level domain name (gTLD). It launches into public availability on September 16 2020 (today), after a week long early access phase. Various registrars including GoDaddy are offering pre orders. Its official site is ohhey.gay”

@shonalika has made another amazing video! In it, they talk about detransitions among transgender people and what causes them; indeed you might learn that those who bring them up as such a huge issue may themselves be the problem ... ;)
But I also loved it because of the part with Shonalika's personal experiences. Learning why I've been feeling this way about not quite fitting in as a woman, and that I'm very much not alone, is very comforting.
Thank you. <3

Follow recommendation for all the #FuckOffGoogle'rs and #DeleteFacebook'ers:

@snopyta

snopyta.org/

Their motto is "self host all the things!" which is obviously a great way to stay away from #GAFAM.

Among many many other things they host #invidious #nitter and #bibliogram. Three services to access content from #Youtube, #Twitter and #Instagram without sending any data to #Google, #Twitter or #Facebook.

I hate to ask, but here goes.

I'm looking for a role as a #frontend #developer. #Contracts or #fulltime. Preferably #UK where I have previous #remote work ex from.

I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!

My site is rusingh.com and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯

#Boost please?

The person appeared out of nowhere.
"Hell," they said, "I come from the future."
"Uh. It's 'hello'," I said, "also, what? Have you come to change the past?"
"Well, imagine you were me. What could you change now to improve the future?"
"Oh, there are lots of-"
"So bloody do it!"

"No one is forced to use Facebook" 

I hear that often, but I know of many people who had to create accounts and start to use Facebook for things like classes, community participation, and family communication. It's assumed you have it, and we don't make affordances for those who don't.

Perhaps we're not forced with violence or laws, but we are strongly coercing each other to use it. I never created an account for various reasons, and I have lost touch with people as a result.

Hey, look at this thing my friend Mint wrote on why he left.

You'll probably make fun of it like you do with the daily dot article.

But maybe you'll read it and... think? Reflect? Change?

"I’m asking you for one tiny act of decolonisation: I’m asking you to understand our grief and take a small part of lifting it. If you’ve read this far, you probably love science fiction and fantasy, so think of it like this: my people are living in The Empire, and this is your chance to join the rebellion. All you need to do is change your mind. It’s just a little tremor, but it’s ready to tear the earth open and remake it anew."
