For any goodreads users, I've created a python script that will parse the CSV file you can export to create a gemini page of currently reading, want to read, and finished reading git.sr.ht/~swiftmandolin/gemin

Never ever ever give police discretion in how to enforce rules. Ontario's new pandemic rules give cops discretion to decide if your reason for being somewhere is sufficient.

In practice this means only white people can go outside.

Lol getting notifications about all my conservative contacts joining Signal

I hope the extreme right doesn’t get Signal taken away or that because I use Signal I’m associated with extreme right-wing politics 😅

Happy New Year 🥳

We are preparing to release the next version that includes several new features and improvements.

The mobile app is almost ready for primetime, and we'll be shipping the Android version first (via @fdroidorg)!

Using computer crime laws to punish journalists for obtaining documents available to every Internet user is dangerous and unconstitutional. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/01/cali

just discovered 100 gecs

really needed them when I was 14 but what an awesome take on whatever this genre is

2020 was wild but I read 12 books in about 5 months and have come to love reading. I was never a reader and had never liked it growing up.

The first book I read this year was Dune by Frank Herbert and then finished the year off with A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami. It was a good year for books. 2021 is looking even better:

I plan to read the LOTR series having never read it or even watched the movies.

I plan to read the Harry Potter series (read book 1 2020).

I plan to also read the entire Bible.

I got a few more Murakami books as well and who knows what else!

happy to be back online again. I have AT&T cellular and fiber and have been disconnected from the world for 2 days.

It was pretty great, not gonna lie. But, the circumstances were not so great :(

my overexposed and chromatically aberrated attempt at capturing the great conjunction today. i added an annotated version so you can tell what's what.

I've discovered a perpetual motion machine 

The Gemini mailing list

thinking about doing music reviews for my gemlog

went back on LinkedIn for a bit to update and wow even the LinkedIn feed is full of U.S. political nonsense. I feel sheltered (and blessed) having been off Facebook and Twitter for a while.

International Men's Day, serious 

This marks the 7th year of my brother-in-law's custody battle over the son of his previous marriage (he's currently married to my sister).

The mother is a narcissist, a stripper (when she can get work at all), abuses drugs, is deep in poverty, and has mothered 6 kids by 4 men.

The courts have awarded her the majority of my nephew's time, child support payments from my brother-in-law (which she spends on herself), and she is the child's primary caregiver. She manipulates the child and uses him as a pawn to get what she wants.

My nephew hasn't stopped growing up while this case has been argued in the courts. He's spending most of his finite childhood under his mother's tutelage, and it's going to impact his life forever.

US family courts are *heavily* skewed in favor of the mother, regardless of the circumstances.
