@cassidyjames Program, Application or Game
Main distinction to me is:
I do something with it, like Photoshop -> it's a program
It does something simple for me, like convert video files -> it's an application
It's a game, like Diablo -> it's a game

A beautiful piece of vintage music gear

Monochrome CRT monitor with stylus

@lynnesbian I once shitposted like "They should just call it LiGNUx", and then someone pointed out that some people actually do
It's impossible to parody FOSSbros

@liaizon Right, but the more we look like "the next big thing", the more we'll draw attention from corporations and advertisers
By slowly building educated communities, we get a head start, and we develop a culture where when those advertisers show up, the residents will refuse them

@liaizon I was thinking about this kind of thing, and like, I don't think growth should be a goal

Like, I keep thinking "I want more people", and then I realise that's not what I mean. What I want are more of the people I love and care about

basically, don't use the fediverse for anything you wouldn't want coming up in a court of law, because it's not secure for that. It's just not a tool that's built for secure political organizing. There's ongoing discussion about potentially making it secure, but that doesn't have an easy solution for a bunch of technical reasons, so for now it's just not. Use Signal or another encrypted, secure chat app. Don't harbor any illusions that you can discuss anything seditious on here safely.

but at the same time, fuck cops, we should 100% be banning them from being on the fediverse, not because it will make our information more secure, but because fuck them, we don't want them around here. It's not a matter of infosec, but a matter of not wanting to associate with the bastards. Come back with a warrant or not at all, asshole.

@neauoire I have feeling you need one of these

It'll play nice with your Microbrute too, since it does 0-5v CV too

don't screencap people's accounts without asking them (unless you are taking shots of abuse or some shit) why do I have to even say this for fuck's sake

@GinnyMcQueen I always figured it was my executive dysfunction, maybe I just need to move to different country?

um @Gargron we should probably ban this account I dont think we want police actively using mastodon.social, like this is what people are trying to escape from #acab

@GinnyMcQueen i don't know where they are in Paris, but thrift/charity shops like "Emmaüs" is a good choice if you're okay buying used

Otherwise you'll want to avoid the city center and go to places like "La Halle Au Chaussures" & "KIABI"

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans
