Listening to a local punk band lament being stuck working a 40 hour desk job while I psych myself up to go work a 40 hour desk job.

In US of A, white men will keep complaining about very high parking charges in the city instead of coming together to demand better public transport. And where it exists, they'll be racist and say they can't share them with "undesirable"* people.

*This was the word used by a former colleague.

offer: free home covid tests (US) 

i have a handful of iHealth home covid tests that will be expiring on july 22 of this year. since i have access to weekly testing and have more home tests coming my way, i'd like to redistribute these to anyone in the US who wants them and will use them before they expire (do not use expired tests, they may have a higher false negative rate).

shipping is on me. drop me a DM to claim them.

boosts welcome.

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');
[...]
}

Today I get to pour beers, drink beers,hang out outside, AND see something like 8 or 10 badass metal bands play live?

How awesome!

1. Anarchism opposes all forms of hierarchy and domination. That is, all situations in which there is an imbalance in power, such that one person's needs and desires are subordinated or treated as less than equally important to someone else's. Justice is not the application of a rigid set of laws, but the resolution of conflicts in a way that treats everyone's interests as equal, arrived at through direct reconciliation between those in conflict by reasoning together.

The one true sleeping position is Sagat's Tiger Knee from Street Fighter and you cannot change my mind.

From a caregiver to persons who cannot get a vaccine due to their age: 

To everyone still choosing to wear a mask in public spaces despite what your local authorities mandate.

To everyone keeping a mask on during large indoor gatherings where the majority around you remove theirs.

To everyone masking up if and when it is possible for you to do so.

Your efforts are not in vain. Your actions are not unappreciated.

I see you. I appreciate you. I thank you. 💛🫂

When people sit here and try to insist, or debunk, the idea of 'racism in tech circles', I always think back to when I rode my bike into work only to find my "Fuck White Power" mug being gone (which held all of my pens so those were just strewn across my desk like 'go fuck yourself'), a 'quiet' keyboard', and a 'quiet' mouse.

If this isn't a passive aggressive "shut the fuck up, Negro", you go ahead and give me your take.
