Renting, England 

I received this email from the Acorn tenants' union, it's relevant for renters in England:

"The government is running a consultation about introducing a decent homes standard for the private rented sector in England!

Bringing in this standard will improve conditions for millions of households, and will mean that landlords [...] have to make their properties safe, [...] free from disrepair, have reasonable facilities and be a comfortable temperature."

‘Degrowth’ is a term that is increasingly mobilized by scholars and activists to criticize the hegemony of growth – and a proposal for a radical reorganization of society that leads to a drastic reduction in the use of energy and resources and that is deemed necessary, desirable, and possible. Degrowth starts from the fact – demonstrated by an increasing number of studies – that further economic growth in industrialized countries is unsustainable.

Turns out that when documentation says, very explicitly, that on error it will return the standard error value ENOBUFS, what it means is that it might return -ENOBUFS, or maybe -EINVAL. So, basically, not what the documentation says. Great, that'd have been nice to know earlier, perhaps even before i had to look into the source code to find out. So, guess there's a report and/or pr to make on Jack2 for this thing that has been a thing for over a decade at this point.

Turns out that you also need to drop by robertsspaceindustries.com/pro to actually get in without having to pay - a touch roundabout, but that's all you need (tested out by a friend, thankies!)

Are there any Netherlands-based artists here who can talk about doing commissions and how taxes work with that? Asking for someone who'll be watching the replies to this thread :) Thank you!

If your community can't survive without slave labor, it deserves to collapse

"but we NEED slaves" is the most grotesque possible argument for private prisons

RT @JimmyJenkins@twitter.com

Arizona Department of Corrections Director David Shinn just told the state legislature we can't shut down private prisons because too many communities rely on the cheap labor they provide and they would "collapse" without it twitter.com/JimmyJenkins/statu

The ninth annual international Gender Census 2022 is now open until 13th August 2022!

survey.gendercensus.com

It's for anyone whose gender (or lack thereof) isn't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

its a bit reductive to say the democrats are just reading poems to a burning building, they’re also paying for the fire’s security detail

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

I think at this point, anyone with a conscience is at least a little anti-capitalist.
