oh, a hobby of mine is scavenging broken computers

when I build a working machine it goes to someone who's been homeless and is trying to get things together

Volunteers have set up a web site to coordinate flood relief in Kerala:

Development here:

Right now, my home state of Kerala in southern India is a disaster zone: once-in-a-century rains have caused floods and mudslides everywhere; 13 out of 14 districts are in high alert. About a million people have been evacuated. About 350 people are estimated to be dead.

When this is all over, we will have a lot to rebuild. We have donated to Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund.

Please do what you can? Thank you!

Just spent over 3 hours at our new #hackerspace location. Made a plan for the next few days for renovating our rooms. Things are looking good. #acmelabs

I stumbled across this while wandering around Toronto a few weeks ago. It's an alley-facing garage not visible to the main street, so it was like finding an a real life Easter egg in the city (Achievement Unlocked: Cool Thing in Alley 🏆 ).

Clearly a work of love, I'm impressed that the artist took the time to tape it out, use the right colours (even the ghosts!), start with cherries, etc. Good work, anonymous nerdy person with a paintbrush! :undertale:

I'm still amazed by the state of that industry. Why paying for an eBook for nearly the same price as a printed book gives you a file you don't own and you can't use, while piracy gives you a file you can use like an actual book?

When buying a book, I can read it where I want, in as many places I want, on as many couches I want, and I can even lend it to a friend. And that's legal.

Wasn't technology supposed to make the future better?

If anyone else is looking for the same thing, I totally forgot I had Starred this project on GitHub. It was _exactly_ what I was looking for.

every cat deserves a cardboard box to feel safe in

remember back in like 2011 when some company was discovered having horse meat in their non-horse meats and it was like a months-long scandal but compare that to 2017 where hobby lobby’s evangelical owners funded ISIS in smuggling thousands of ancient sumerian tablets to facilitate the second coming and we talked about it for maybe 5 days at most


Our small town is currently under siege by a HAINT: so far 3 people turned to tar, 1 cow taught how to speak, much glass broken, TVs don't work.

SEEKING: Haint Exorcist

No pay on offer at this time, but good exposure for an exorcist just starting out. We'll have Jermald, whose mind was wiped blank with fear, hold a sign with your name on the entry path to town for a year (or as long as Jermald holds out, they ain't looking good or eating regular) as FREE advertising.

Wir haben die ACME Labs gegründet!
Unser CoC ist schon fertig, die Räume noch nicht 😆
Sobald wir mit der Renovierung fertig sind freuen wir uns auf euren Besuch!


So, we founded a new #hackerspace in #bielefeld. We are still getting our rooms in shape but we are getting there. Check out our CoC :) We are looking forward to open up for everyone.

'Stacking concrete blocks is a surprisingly efficient way to store energy' by Akshat Rathi

there's something really wonderful & funny about the confluence of high & low technology, the obvious & the innovative, in this concept–storing excess energy grid capacity in gravitational batteries, the potential energy of concrete blocks that you've lifted up really high.

One thing I feel is a big contributor to burnout is being too focused on the "anti" aspect of left struggle. Being anti-capitalist, anti-racist, etc. Obviously, being those things is good, but defining yourself too heavily by being the antithesis of the status quo is an exhausting endeavor. Try to direct more energy to the post-capital restructuring, and anchor yourself on what you believe in as well. Universal access to material security, education, healthcare, etc. A better world is coming!
