If I've faved your neg. posts: Show more
I'm a phenomenally poor communicator when it comes to bad news, feels, mental health, etc. So, if you've seen me drive-by fave your neg. posts, please know that I do so in a spirit of support and solidarity, and with an ear open if it'll help. I'm terrible at knowing just what to say in tough times, but I just want you to know: you are Seen and you're not Alone.
Brief Intro Show more
- (See my profile for the basics)
- Polyam trans girl(ish) who loves to mess with her hormones
- Abuse survivor
- Troubled instrument of academia
- I split my time between: looking after partners; surviving on a part-time income; fretting about what I want to "Do" with my life; working on mental health and recovering from old traumas; reading [sociopolitical works/math/man pages]; and whatever small project I'm attempting at any given moment.
- Solidarity and mutual aid forever
Today the fine community working on #Thunderbird is having a bug day. Idea is to update long standing bugs, make sure bugs are bugs and not support request. If you use #thunderbird and want to give back, take 5 minutes today and join the party all the details are at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Bugdays , if you're too busy, just boost/Retweet so other people are aware and can give a hand. #qa #crowdtesting #email
HEADS UP: For #OpenBSD -current users: There was a problem in amd64 snapshots that went out that affecting the bootloader, likely due to a LLVM/clang commit which was backed out in the interim. New snapshots should resolve this.
If you found yourself unable to boot, you may need to prepare new CD/USB install media to upgrade.
hey have any of you ever tried to check for mold or such in an apartment? i've been disoriented lately and want to totally verify the air in my home isn't killing me. getting the maintenance on it might be counterproductive unless i have proof.
anyway, that's my point. anyone know some good, reliable home tests?

FYI - masto privacy discussion Show more
There is a Mastodon privacy-related (block system) change being discussed at https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/10433 that is potentially more important than the apparent magnitude of the change, and on which some of you might be interested in weighing in.
(Previously, there had been some ambiguity - this would provide text indicating that you'd been blocked in certain areas).
The changed code in question is not in use on this instance.
Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.
If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.
The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice
