Naivety, criticism Show more
I think it's really weird how people frequently assume that my perspective on things is a result of naivety.
I've had so many people try to "educate" me on the history of something I lived through. Folks try to tell me how awful some folks can be when I've experienced worse.
The fact that I still keep my head raised in cheerful optimism and hope is a result of what I've gone through, not a result of inexperience...
"Hopes and Dreams", Undertale, emotional Show more
it's weird watching a stream of someone who's just casually using "Hopes and Dreams" as background game music because, like...that's music that makes me want to stand and stare, maybe weeping quietly
I try to ration my use of Undertale music so it'll still be powerful. I don't want the music to be dull with overfamiliarity...although I don't suppose it's music that I'll ever tire of
#Undertale saved my life, that'll always be true, no matter what else has happened since. it didn't _have_ to be Undertale, it could have ended up being something else
but Undertale was it, and it will always be special to me
software, Nazis. Show more
Huh. So TIL that the suckless.org developers organized a torchlight walk at their conference in Neuremburg (last year?), and the laptop of one of the developers is named "wolfsschanze"; one of their developers posts on lobste.rs decrying "Cultural Marxism". So there's a project to avoid.
Any fountain pen aficionados that can help me identify this and maybe find an ink cartridge that'll fit? It was my grandfather's and it's laid on my desk for months waiting for me to find one. I miss writing with it 😢
It's a Sheaffer pen with a hooded nib. There are tiny letter along the bottom of the cap that say:
"SHEAFFER - MADE IN THE U.S.A."
It originally had a bladder cartridge but it was so old that the sac started leaking on my shirt shortly after he left it to me.
I would *like* a converter but something else is alright too.
" This man had a £5.25 milkshake wasted because a despicable human being was walking through the town. We aim to raise funds to replace the delicious milkshake that gave its life in sacrifice in the fight against toxic rhetoric. "
Also he probable needs help paying for legal stuff
Seattle politics, Fort Lawton Show more
tonight I'm gonna be doing something a bit out of my usual run, which is attending a town hall meeting on turning Fort Lawton, an abandoned military outpost in the tony waterfront neighborhood of Seattle called "Magnolia", into a homeless encampment. needless to say the usual white shites don't want this to happen
I'm not planning on doing much more than watching, and seeing who is involved in trying to argue for and against the use of the place
don't suppose anyone on the fediverse can tell me about how Fort Lawton is _currently_ used? all I know so far is that the City of Seattle owns it. I haven't found any indication yet of current usage, if any.
i hate hearing from my 50-something US history teacher about how socialism/communism is always bad and should never be put into practice, "climate change isn't actually a big deal", and how he aggressively targets people/w failing grades in his class (He directly walks up and/or shouts in their direction when he goes on a tangent)
Then again he has some very obvious conservative leanings
on capitalism and fossbro culture Show more
the field of computing, especially of programming, is maybe unique in being the only discipline accepted (by some, not by me, heh) as a scientific or engineering discipline that grew up _entirely_ during late-stage capitalism. even electrical engineering has deeper roots that go back to a time before literally everything made, had to be made for sale
the side effect of this diabolical birth was to give computer programmers a really awful sense of value. because everything in a capitalistic society is valued according to how much money it costs, it's incorrectly concluded that FREE things are exempt from value judgments
fossbro computer programmers assert that because they make software for reasons other than money, criticism of what they make is not permissible. after all, they made it for "free", out of the goodness of their hearts. and you're not allowed to comment on it unless you've (a) either paid for it in some way or (b) are a fossbro yourself
