Bhavani Esapathi (https://twitter.com/@bhaesa) is my friend and a dear, wonderful person who has been battling autoimmune disease for as long as I’ve known her and doing so while helping others. Now the Tories want to hand her a death sentence and deport her. We cannot let this happen.
Read about her ordeal:

A great new post from @kyleislikekyle on the life we miss when we are in cars.
I'm really frustrated with IPFS. I run one of the more popular pinning services, Eternum.io, and the IPFS node eminently *sucks* for this.
Pinning is synchronous, so you pin objects to the queue and hope they're available. If they aren't, pinning gets blocked until your pinning requests time out, only you don't know how long to set the timeout, because if you set it to an hour, large content will always time out (because it takes long to pin) and small unavailable content will block your queue for an hour before it finally times out.
Imagine a torrent client that you could add torrents to but had to wait for one before downloading the next, and it never told you if it's *actually downloading* or not. You basically just take a guess on whether it's actually downloading and hope you aren't wrong.
I currently have a queue of 4000 objects that need pinning but they're all stuck waiting for a few unavailable objects.
This is unacceptable, I don't know how IPFS hopes to become popular with UX this bad.

Also free and open source software is about basic rights and not "purity" as you put it.
Also proprietary software is an accessibility barrier for privacy and security conscious users.
Every relationship changes you in some way. How could it *not*? You expose yourself to another person almost completely. Your most intimate feelings, desires, dislikes, etc. all shared with another person. That takes a profound level of trust not found with most friendships.
Given that, why consider a relationship unsuccessful just because you broke up, if you learned something about yourself from it?
Doesn't mean the breakup is any easier, but once the dust settles, one can make it positive.

again we have a much too dry spring.
I became a bakers apprentice in 2003. I have been baking since then and it has become worse and worse. We have not had a good grain harvest since 4 years. It has become a sad thing to get on the phone with the farmer who farms our grains. The next harvest is already in danger.
it has begun! and all I hear from people is: "the climate is changing naturally anyway"
A former high-ranking Mozilla executive has accused Google of intentionally and systematically sabotaging Firefox over the past decade in order to boost Chrome's adoption.
sewing! - and masculinity, gendering, misogyny, environmental pol Show more
As I learn to sew as an adult, four things come together to irk me:
- I was, through society and directly, not taught anything coded as feminine;
- sewing, and all crafting, is coded as feminine;
- all things coded as feminine, including crafting, is considered lessor;
- living sustainability and outside of consumerism is, often, a form of crafting.
I see what we did there, and I won't stand for it!

Good morning. Please remember that weaponizing parts of your identity (that white supremacist capitalist patriarchy attempts to destroy/capitalize on) in order to silence or control another 'minority' is talking about something is not the way forward.
If I'm talking about race, don't bring up class to negate my points. Also, these things are always linked together as well and there's time and a place for nuanced discourse.
Dazed and confused but trying to continue.
