When I take my laptop from one spot to another and take my power cord with me, I often stick the wall wort in my back pocket and leave it plugged into my lappy. It makes me feel like I'm a cool cyberpunk hacker person in a cyberpunk universe where technology is powered by farts.

For #InternationalMensDay I want to share this reprint of an old poster circulating in german autonomous spaces in the 80s - It is definitely not perfect, but I've had it hanging in my old flat and it resonated with a lot of people who were not in the habit of questioning concepts like hegemonial masculinity. It roughly translates to:

"For centuries we had to be strong to fight for our honour in wars, the factory or the office. When we don't give orders, we follow them!
Violence against others is normal for many of us. Every third woman will experience sexualized violence in her lifetime!
But enough is enoug!
An end to strength, honour and all that shit! Let us finally learn to live as humans, self-determined and in solidarity, instead of constantly asserting ourselves as a man.
MEN! Understand the patriarchy as an attack on your humanity (as well)"

I would say I _often_ reflect that my 6yo would fit in well here in many ways. I think the 9yo would, too, but in an incredibly different way. The 6yo’s personality is kind if at 11 all the time and the 9yo’s is more understated. Which is not to say they both don’t bounce off the walls. Its not about energy level.

I think it came up because the kids have been watching me play Ikenfell and it has at least two NB characters (one uses he/him and one ze/zir).

Show thread

I wrote a bunch if it down and the 6yo did some artwork of the story. There were a lot if details about zir outfit and stuff, so there’s plenty of material to work with.

It was great practice with these pronouns for both of us, TBH.

Show thread

The 6yo often wants to play a game where we take turns adding onto a story. Tonight they started off with “Once upon a time there was a non-binary fox person,” and then pitched it to me. Eventually, it turned out that ze’s also a famous pop star. We had to “put a bookmark” after establishing the conflict, which is that one of the backup singer/dancers is supposed to have a special solo part, but is shy and has stage fright. Next time, we’ll address it.

Personally I'm more excited about the domain-specific search engines, that's what got me into browser dev. I want using (a mix of) them to be as trivial as using a centralized solution, only improved clients can make that a reality!

This project will be well worth following, but personally I'm more interested searchmysite.net. And no, I don't care that it's facade is closed source!

If anybody wants 40% off clothes at ua.com, ua.ca or the Under Armour app, this code is good for 10 uses, I think: SHDM-NPR9-MGFF-5ZKW. Have at it.

Possums are weird. I just caught one making a racket in my back yard digging around in the dry leaves. When I flipped on the light and said, “What are you doing???” it froze and looked at me so I said, “Yeah, you.” and it noped on towards the back fence, but… it had leaves and twigs somehow stuck to its back right near the tail? Like… almost entirely obscuring its hindquarters. How did that happen? What is going on in your life, possum???

Type people! I was thinking about typeface design and it occurred to me that every type designer I know of is white and most of them are men. Do you have any favorites who are neither?

finally got out some designs im happy with. sick kids club (chronic illness design) and custom pronoun pins. yaaay,

these will be up for sale soon-ish. and if you want to pre-order, that would help our my finances tremendously lol.

Hey people living with other people: what do you use to sync your grocery/shopping lists?

@benhamill unfortunate about the delay. to anyone unfamiliar with Android: Netrunner, Project NISEI is a volunteer fan org that has already accomplished quite a bit. here we are talking about the next Netrunner product, geared towards new players, which by the way is taking many very talented people quite a bit of time to design/create/test. and this product will be available for free to the world.

there arent enough kind words to describe the NISEI folks.

Emergency fundraising, immediate action required. PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST
