Pinned toot

Hi. I'm a hacker. Probably autistic. Definitely queer. Non-binary. Don't have pronouns and I'll respond to whatever you see me as, as long as it's not an ideologically dismissive acronym. I hate the corporate gay agenda for limiting the spectrum and love indie art that expands it. I think investors demanding constant growth and market capture fuels evil against communities. I'm wrong a lot. Learning is fun. Married, 8 years. Fuck partisan politics. I write C that runs at sea, see?

Gave up on my pinephone. Used it as a daily driver for 3 months. It cannot reliably:

Take a picture

Be an alarm clock

Import contacts

Wake up and show you a call or text

Stay on

Run for 10 hours


Select ring tones

Stay connected to a cellular network

Send or receive MMS

Not make random hissing sounds

I dare not try a 911 call

This is what happens when people care about code quality more than how well the tool does the job. I invested MANY hours, but fuck this I'm done. $100

I got it I got it I got it, ok what if we tried to get the media to use the term "gays and homosexuals" going forward? Would that be cool or not?

"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"

"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"

"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"

"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"

What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".

It's a bullshit lie to think I wouldn't be a valuable member of society if I didn't care about money in the slightest, but that's capitalism for ya.

America has structured itself so each generation has fewer people economically secure enough to spend time and energy thoughtfully considering topics of import.

It's not <insert scapegoats here> fault.

It's because we have to work more for less money.

We've chosen to shift more of the GDP towards return-on-capital and less towards labor; resulting in less wealth per hour of time spent; leaving people with less time and energy to invest in hard topics.

So in Texas, thanks to a Republican governor we can't have more than one official drop box per county because 'fraud'...

.... but in California the Republican party is going to refuse to stop putting out unofficial drop boxes because ?

Everything in this country about elections confuses and maddens me.
