Pinned toot

selfie, ec 

now y'all can finally see what I look like (hope no one is too scare) 😆

I am sitting on the stairs of my house on two pillows (as it was only reasonable looking background) with the phone at arms length or the front camera "adds weight"

My hair is probably too long and untidy but at my age I'm glad to still have it 😆

took *ages* to get a OK one and had to avoid falling down the stairs..

comments/boosts OK (I doubt anyone is going to want to flirt with this "old uncle")

@ak theme tunes for radio stations are still a thing on Dutch pirates 😁

it is "de Pelgrim".. (pilgrim) he plays a track for you,, it is the Pelgrim, he plays for young and old, it is the Pelgrim, that everybody loves..

Bei einem Protest gegen die Corona-Maßnahmen in Hamburg haben Gegendemonstranten den Autokorso angegriffen. Er sei immer wieder von rund 300 Gegendemonstranten auf Fahrrädern behindert worden, sagte ein Polizeisprecher. Diese warfen auch mit Eiern und Tomaten. Der Aufzug mit 109 Fahrzeugen sei am Samstagnachmittag vom Anmelder vorzeitig um kurz vor 16 Uhr beendet worden. (, 10.4.2021).

:tinfoilcat: 😁

asking for money help, boosts needed :boost_ok: 


i need $35 for my phone bill that's coming up, $50-ish for groceries, $80 for medical weed, and an unknown amount to pick up my anti-psychotic and anti-depressant in a few days (first time getting them with the new insurance)

i didn't get the second or third stimulus, and i'm pretty sure it's because my abusive parents claimed me as a dependent to steal it. tried explaining the whole situation here but went over the character limit, the tl;dr is i'm waiting to get my W-2 from my abusive ex-boss who refuses to give it to me

i've been trying to find a job video editing or something, i can't work anywhere facing the public because i have asthma and if i catch covid i'll die excruciatingly




thank you so much for saving my life multiple times and continuing to keep me alive, fediverse!!! :black_sparkles: :blacker_heart:

One thing that really pisses me off about the typical prepper discourse is the “your preparedness is only for you, fuck everybody else” mentality. A) It’s fucking stupid, because even from a purely self-interested perspective, in an eco/economic/social collapse situation long-term survival will depend on cooperation with others. B) It’s fucking stupid, because sooner or later somebody will find out that you have a stash of supplies that you’re hoarding and rightly or wrongly will take them away.

I'm currently in the process of building an i386 cross compiler which runs on aarch64 and i think my life may have taken an odd turn

Dark web hitman identified through crypto-analysis

Europol supported the Italian Postal and Communication Police (Polizia Postale e delle Comunicazioni) in arresting an Italian national suspected of hiring a hitman on the dark web. The hitman, hired through an internet assassination website hosted on the TOR network, was payed about €10 000 worth in Bitcoins to kill the ex-girlfriend of the suspect.

A "right to repair" bill in my state quietly died 2 days ago in legislative committee. It never made it to the floor for a vote. The reason it died is not public.

Fuck Apple, AT&T, Samsung, John Deer, and all the other companies/manufacturers who helped kill it. Their worlds continue to improve for only themselves, while the rest of the real world pays for it.

If similar legislation is up this year in your state, push your elected representatives to support it.

“The slogans ‘Make America Great Again’ and ‘Take Back Control’ in the US and Britain respectively, spoke to a perceived decline of white supremacy and nostalgia for imperial influence. These desperate clamours of nationalism, as Sivamohan Valluvan puts it, throw scandal, absurdity, violence and the renewed resistance from the left, back into a chaotic political arena.“

Upcoming Instagram changes warn users to accept activity tracking to "Help keep Instagram free of charge" 🙄 #deleteInstagram

You think? :thaenkin:

Looking for recommendations.

I'm in the market for a new camera bag/rucksack.

I typically carry one SLR-sized camera (OM-D EM-1), plus two lenses 12-40 & 40-150. Ideally, I also need space for a 10-inch tablet and smartphone. A few nick-naks, too, like spare batteries, remote trigger, lens wipes etc.

For ease of access I'd prefer a shoulder bag, but the equipment weight might require use of a rucksack. Waterproof, or shower-proof.

It's unfortunate that the only cheap laptops sold new with Linux are locked down Chromebooks except for the Pinebook which has limited production. It's great that Dell and Lenovo are now selling laptops with Linux, but they're not cheap.
