If anyone missed it last night, I've launched a BBS (yes, an old-school BBS, text interface, you access it via telnet) to act as a chill social hangout for #trans folk.

Since it just went live, it's very small, but if we can grow it into a cozy little community, I think it could be pretty great.

If you're interested in the details, contact me directly.

Boosts are also appreciated!

#metatext just got updated with a couple of bug fixes, namely the annoying emoji misplacement on iOS 15. I'm so grateful for the developer who picked this up after a year of no updates.

hello and welcome to another edition of Friday , brought to you late by day of yarn dependency resolutions (1/3)

A Love Letter From the End of the World
by Saint

"The apocalypse is continual as there is no perfect destination or some ultimate revolutionary point that we reach. I often notice this almost religious fervor reminds me of a lot of evangelicals in the so-called Leftist Movements and Scenes. They want abolition without the mess. They want us to reach a final goal where we can throw up our hands and say we are done!

The Left often reminds me of Christian cults that so often pop up and declare that they are the second coming of Christ or that it was revealed to them how to lead Earth into a new era. The issue is that no one is coming to save us...

Words like revolution and abolition are not supposed to pencil you in but are an incomplete sketch of a map to show us where we are going because as of right now we can only dream of what liberation looks like. I believe that it is beyond any of our wildest imaginations. To me, the only way out of the predicament we find ourselves in is not prayers, leftist leaders, or good thoughts but the Continual Abolition of the World."

how many elegant takes against crypto will I read and share with glee? at least one more

three hours into this one hour process I discovered I needed amd64 and not arm and that was just the tip of the iceberg

have anyone ever been as arrogant as I was when I attempted to build and deploy a new networked system from docker with no documentation, thinking “this can’t take more than an hour or two, surely”

Justice Alito points out, in his draft, "an unbroken tradition of prohibiting #abortion on pain of criminal punishment persisted from the earliest days of the common law until 1973."

Speaking in my capacity as a historian, I would assess that thesis as "egregiously wrong" (to use Alito's words) or utterly full of shit (to use my own).

Abortions really only became illegal on a wide scale in the 1800s. Doctors started to understand human gestation better. Toss in professional competition with abortion providers as the medical profession is trying to standardize, mix it with some good old-fashioned misogyny, and there you go.

Anti-choice laws have some to do with the dangers of the procedure, but mostly to do with controlling women's bodies.

I’m playing Rogue Legacy after everyone recommended it to me after a shitpost tweet last year and it’s been a while since I’ve felt so utterly inept at a game!

why are “family bonding things” always “things jenny doesn’t enjoy” like “traipsing around an off-leash dog park in misting rain with other wet dogs” and never “sitting quietly under a dry blanket and reading a book with no unbidden noise or interruptions”

Much of the independent web relies on Patreon to organize financial support.

The good folks at @comradery are building an ethical alternative as a co-op.

One of their rules is "no bosses, no cops". It's not meant for businesses (even nonprofits like the one I work for) but for independent creators, workers, activists, and co-ops.

If that could be a good fit for anything you our your friends are doing, maybe give them a follow here to stay updated as they're building the platform!

I’d been taking climbing videos by propping my phone against my water bottle, which is what most people at my gym do, but which is annoying when there’s lots of people at the gym bc you can’t always guarantee a clear line of sight from the benches, so I got this today - it hooks onto my popsocket! I mainly just really enjoy that it looks like a lil rubber wire dog
