Hey fairy friends, if you didn't already know, you can find me over on cybre.space. I really don't handle multiple accounts very well so I just switch from time to time.

It's @Jules and I'm trying to use @jules for more creative things but I just can't separate and so it's just another account.

Anyway, come over and say Hi if you like

Please tell me about nice movies and series to watch over the next few weeks ๐Ÿ’™

I prefer sci-fi and fantasy but not exclusively :dark_elf: :dragn: :green_potion: ๐Ÿš€

Also changed my avatar color to match the one on witches.town, so don't be confused.

Trying to be more instance-fluid ^^

Look, I'm a big lad, but even I wouldn't want to go to a conf where that's written on the door lmao

Ahhhhh yeah! I have connected with 100 human followers on this elephant ride. For my next feat, I will find another Black person on here somewhere ๐Ÿ˜‚ Or, maybe a few of yโ€™all could meet me halfway? ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸพโœŒ๐Ÿฝ#BLM #M4BL #blacklivesmatter #POC

Is there a #config flag for #Mastodon whether followers are visible to accounts on other instances?

Like: I can see the followers of a mutual on, say, mastodon.social, but not dice.camp, for example.

Hm, seems like my search for an enby was not successful so far. Let's try this instead:

I have one ticket for #34c3 that I would like to give away (for free) to a queer person. Preferably someone who wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise.

(Please do check if you are able to figure out travel and accommodation in time!)

The book I just started to read when I should be sleeping is "Anthropology-Based Computing" by John N.A. Brown.

Basically the book is interrupting my sleep, is this bad design?

"Humans are apes. Like other apes, we enjoy organizing things into categories. I believe that we do this so that we can pretend to understand them better than we really do. Whatโ€™s more, we believe that we really do it well. Consider the examples of the labels โ€œnightโ€ and โ€œdayโ€. They are clearly different and mutually exclusive, so those seem like very good labelsโ€ฆ but where do you draw the line between one and the other?"

"So this isnโ€™t really a book about computers. This is a book about how to make your technology less likely to accidently interrupt, insult, injure, or kill you or anyone else."

Okay I'm giving this book a try...

Insulting technology is a thing!

Rumour has it that twitter has a dev team dedicated to studying the codebase of #mastodon and #pleroma and a psy team to discover the secret of the #fediverse. And that facebook has a psy-ops team to try and kill the #fediverse.

Yay, I now have #pleroma running on a PYNQ-Z1 FPGA board. It has a 650MHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 with 512MB RAM. That is not enough memory to run #mastodon though.

the idea that talking in person is better than talking on the phone, and talking on the phone is better than communicating on text-based media, is some weapons grade ableist horseshit

I'm 91% of the way to my goal of raising $2000 for the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, an organization that fights capitalism, fights for workers, & fights for undocumented families in Western Massachusetts; the most impoverished region in MA. We do everything from hassling state legislatures for anti-wage theft laws, a 24/7 support hotline for undocumented people facing deportation, vigils and rallies, to bail & barricading construction on the local ICE office.
