iOS13 public beta broke Google Play Music, so experimenting with YouTube music. Mixtape is stuck on Set It Off and NSYNC. I’d like to say I’m unhappy with this, but sorry, Professor, I must not tell lies.

If you need me, I’ll be searching for doughnuts in the wilderness.

Haven’t posted in awhile, but I wanted people to make sure I was alive, and when i got to the status box, I found I still had nothing to say, but the algorithm demands my input, so here ya go, Interweb.

Disabled people live at war with society every day of their lives and that makes them braver than any career soldier ever.

I find it really upsetting when I see the idea being spread that “transitioning = trans”. There are lots of trans people who do not transition. They are still trans, because gender identity does not rely on whether or not you transition, and gender identity is what being trans is about. Not HRT, clothing, surgery, or pronouns

@checkervest Every time I expand a status with a CW, I always collapse it before I mvoe on. Doesn't seem to make any difference, but it's this habit I've picked up for no reason.

i was, in fact, not born this way.

i was born.... much smaller

facebook isn't a community it isn't a place. It's a value and cultural extraction mechanism that leaves you dry

@maloki hot take: Mastodon takes an anti-nazi stance, but advertising that there aren't any nazis on it is misleading because that implies there's some technical reason nazis can't sign up rather than moderation and defederation

Fun fact about the license under which the Mastodon source code is published (AGPL) is that it requires any modifications to it to be published.

No secret sauce, no proprietary features possible. Which is why commercial companies hate this license.

Want to paywall "pro" features? You can, but anyone can take your code and run it on a different server for free.

Anyway, that's quite an interesting financial choice for Gab, a for-profit entity that sells "pro" features

Alright, I’m finally doing it. I’m quitting Facebook. And I’ve given myself the goal of quitting birb site by the end of the year. Should probably happen sooner, while I’m still brave enough to do it, but let’s just cut off one appendage at a time.

While I do enjoy having a wardrobe of many colors and breaking the whole stereotype about how blind people just where one matching outfit every day, it’s a chore sorting things out sometimes. The primary colors are fine, but the nonprimary colors are… wp.me/pagcFg-fA

I’m blind. If you call me disabled, it means if i drop my keys, it takes me a little longer to find them and put them back in my pocket. If you call me differently enabled, it means I can use telekenesis to return the keys to my hand. It’s the difference… wp.me/pagcFg-fz

I have my iPhone connected to a splitter connected to my laptop. Got the my foot tangled in the wires and sent my iPhone whizzing across the room where it bounced harmlessly off the floor. That is the magic of the UnicornBeetle.

What’s a person gotta do to become a mascott on this social network?

There is a special pleasure to reading something where the author doles out tiny bits of information over time about the characters and the experiences that formed them before the events of the book so you can't see the whole clear shape of them until almost the end of the book

I have to say, I catching on to using with quite nicely. i just wish it worked a little better with on iPhone.

The only thing I don’t like about this new machine is the position of the 6-pack. It’s above the numpad on the right, and laid out vertically. It’s directly adjacent to and looks just like the FKeys.
