Just gonna pin this for my own memory, as much as for sharing with y'all.

Pinned toot

This is an post...kinda.

Hit me up with your toots. Mine is on order and I'm looking forward to getting it.

I toot a lot about , especially of the leftist sort.

Here are an assortment of hashtags:

It looks like this will probably be my new main account. It's with a heavy heart that I am moving on from mastodon.club, but @msh has a solid instance here that I'm happy to join.

why doesn't anyone talk about pickle pizza? it's good.

(But imagine thinking NPR is "lefty.")

I can't believe how many people have Stockholm Syndrome about the rich

Mint: Marx misread capitalism but we must not fall into the same trap.

Uh... I feel like this guy misunderstands socialism as much as he claims Marx misunderstood capitalism. For one thing, most forms of socialism that have actually existed "[use] information such as prices to allocate resources." In fact, remove prices from the scenario and, uh, all economic types use information to allocate resources. How basic. How odd that this guy thinks only capitalism does so.

Booking.com: Need a getaway, Adam?

I mean, yes, I really do. But travel still seems irresponsible and risky, unless we're camping.

Ripping videos from websites is a fucking chore with Windows, and every website/piece of software to do it seems super sketchy so I'm just rolling the dice on getting a virus here...at least it's for work and on the work machine!

the tape on amazon packages says they donated $183 million to combat climate change, which is the equivalent of me donating about 12 bucks

tech under capitalism sucks 

the tragedy of tech, hardware and software, under capitalism is that its sole purpose becomes to disenfranchise labor. to replace workers, to cut off workers from decision-making, and otherwise to protect the institutions of rent and property.

of course, without rent and property and disenfranchisement, reducing the amount of labor necessary for general economic operations is a great boon. shorter shifts without loss of pay, for example.

My still won't power on. I tried the various troubleshooting guides on the wiki and forums that seemed relevant. None worked.

Did my keyboard cleaning efforts somehow fry it? It booted up fine once after doing the cleaning. Then I turned it off and it just never powered on again.

Trying to charge it now on the off chance the battery is dead and my fixes *did* work (this shouldn't be the case, but is possible). Otherwise, am I screwed?

Any ideas, @PINE64?

People always say 'cat nap' like it's a quick, light sleep

but my cat will sleep for HOURS, snoring in deep contentment, and you have to work really hard to wake him up

Meanwhile people say 'sleep like a baby' in satisfied tones as if babies don't wake up screaming at the slightest provocation

I vote we switch these terms.

I forgot that wondermark did a comic about people who watched the presidential debate

In this thread, I'd like to talk about a poem by the earliest known female writer in vernacular, Marie de France. Marie was most probably a member of the French nobility who travelled between France and England in the second half of the 12th century. Her poems, which she sang, were called "lays" and proved extremely popular in England.

We got my kid a Chromebook for school, so she wouldn't have to keep using/destroying my laptop. I have to admit, they're pretty slick little machines. Obviously, they're very simple and somewhat limited in what they can do, since basically everything is just a web app, but they're pretty great as a machine to just quickly get some writing done or browse the web (technically, you can even use Firefox or other browsers, but only Android versions, if I understand correctly, so the UX isn't great).

Day, uh, eight, I think, of taking citalopram. They say it takes 3-4 weeks to be effective, but I feel like I have noticed an improvement in my mood. Maybe this is psychosomatic, blind hope, or actually real. Who knows?

Since upping to the full dose yesterday, I seem to have a dull background headache pretty much all the time. I'm told this will *probably* go away as my body adjusts. If not, I guess we adjust dosage or look at different drugs.
