Sex and romance are not necessary components of being queer.

Some of us are queer for *not* having those things.

larian studios looked up the most selected character creation options in baldur's gate 3 and it yielded such a bog-standard white human male that they thought their analytics were broken. i'm laughing my ass off right now

War ein langer Weg, erschwert durch die Pandemie aber umso glücklicher sind wir jetzt, dass wir starten können :yayblob:

hearing loss, brain stuff 

OK, here's one thing I want to shout about since I learned it all yesterday: the average person with hearing loss takes 10 years - 10 YEARS! - to get a test or seek any help.

But your brain is really plastic and really thrifty and if you're not using the neurons that help it listen and process speech, those bits atrophy - because no point maintaining them, right? So by the time people with hearing loss actually get a hearing aid, it is way less use to them than it could have been at the start.

ALSO: if you are struggling to hear over a long period, your brain spends a lot of time feeling overwhelmed.

That, plus the atrophying neurons, means even mild untreated hearing loss doubles your risk of dementia.

If you're in the UK, hearing tests are free at places like Specsavers and Boots. You can also get free online tests. Check your hearing, people!

I grew a wallet in my basement!
I’ve been growing #kombucha scobies specifically to turn into #vegan leather, and my first batch is finally done. I’m going to write a recap and tutorial. In the meantime, here are pictures of my new wallet, made from kombucha. It feels like a cross between heavy plastic sheeting and leather.

Something I learnt b in therapy, that might help others.

Make active goals.

This means to not set goals on states, but on actions.

For example:

Instead of "I finish this thing" make your goal "I work on this thing today"

Reason is, you can't really control the state, as a lot can come up.

But you can control more that you work on something. And any amount of work would suffice to reach that goal. So even if you work in it for just an hour, it might not be finished, but you worked on it

TL:DR

Set goals that are active, time constraint and reachable and best start with "I want to"

Don't set goals that are passive, start with "I must", are unreachable or don't have any time constraint.

On Linux, I like workspaces to organize my work. When I am coding, I typically have a browser on a different workspace to look things up or check on fedi, or maybe even two different ones.

But modern browsers use CPU all the time, even when they are on a separate workspace.

So I wrote a script which can put selected apps to sleep unless they are on the current workspace.

It's a command line script, run it with the -h switch for help:

ws-switch-mon.pl -h
