The Creative Commons Valence Electron Show Number 02 Is going to go live in 5 minutes! 00:00 UTC Sunday! <3 Hope you tune into tilderadio.net :D

@tomasino or any other gopher-heads able to help me out. Tilde gopher space is showing a full user directory listing when it shouldn't. I'm very annoyed and confused.

gopher.tildeverse.org/tilde.cl Should be showing my gophermap for that directory and instead it's showing the full user listing which is ruining the whole page.

Thank you for any help!

I will never forget that on this day, last year, I was forced to go to a food bank for the first time.

A job in RVA had fallen through, and my grief over the death of my cat had slowed my frantic search for a replacement. Savings ran out.

My application for SNAP benefits was denied, and I was shamed and treated like a scammer in the process.

I was facing down a long holiday weekend with not much in the house to eat. I was scared, and I didn't know what to do.

I drove to Feed More, off Rhoadmiller Dr. There, a kindhearted older woman interviewed me, repeatedly suggested I stopped feeling ashamed, and sent me home with two sacks of food, and info about further local help.

It was the first time in my life I'd asked for a public handout from strangers, in person. And they gave it. Kindly. With encouragement.

I'd been the recipient of help from Mastodon before that. Between those tow experiences, the lesson that it was okay to ask for help finally sank in, after a lifetime of being brutalized whenever I had done. There are good people in this world, folks who want to care for others with no strings attached.

I learned that at 41. I'm glad I had the chance to.

I want to give back, here or wherever I go. "Independence Day" to me is bunk.

I celebrate Inter-dependence Day now.

Information Alert: Keybase was acquired by Zoom, so I will no longer be using it, I will revoke all the stuff that is specific to them as of today

They're showing a video on the L6 language and I'm so engaged twitch.tv/oldtimeycomputershow

Sometimes these quarantine times make you sad. Thankfully potatoes can turn into vodka :-)
