From the makers of FOMO comes JOMO: The Joy of having missed out. No guilt in this schadenfreude. I hope the cryptobros lose everything

NOOOO Guix don't try updating so many packages, my USB 2.0 drive is gonna die!

Installing Guix from a USB 2.0 drive is like watching tectonic plates move... I should definitely get some new USB drives in the future!

"I want to be able to not have my phone on me, if I so choose. I want the battery to be allowed to die. I want the chance to be "disconnected" for as long and as often as I want. I want to be able to exist in the world without all the apps and barcodes and notifications and other mandatory distractions inflicted by the glowing black rectangle in my pocket.

Is that too much to ask?"

web browser tier list because i'm bored. if you want me to explain any of my picks, ask in the comments, keep in mind i haven't used a lot of browsers and a few browsers i have used weren't on this tier list (for example, i'd put librewolf high in C, probably above icecat)

I grew up with evangelicals.

They are totally coming for contraception and the right for LGBT people to exist.

They are also coming for neuroatypicals. In their worldview, we have no right to exist as independent people.

Every variety of The Different is under threat.

The time to start fighting was the day you were born.

If you missed that, today will do.
