~ FOLLOW REQUESTS ~

If you already follow me from another account, you might need to message me first to be like, "hi, you have approved my follow request previously from another account!"

This is because I typically disallow follows from tech guys (e.g. pronouns are he/him, has something about Linux or webdev or gamedev in bio, etc.), but if I have already approved you and not kicked you off again then it's totally fine and I'll approve you again. :)

Telegram channel: "Hey, do you want this?"

Things I don’t want any more. You can claim them, usually just for price of postage from the UK (or not even that, if the thing is small).

This is a thread about (drawdown.org), and a summary of my favourite bits of the very interesting TED talk by Chad Frischmann here: ted.com/talks/chad_frischmann_

It's really helpful for grassroots activism!

I have a carpetless house now, and somehow I was NOT expecting how fast dust and fluff would accumulate and need sweeping up. Also being able to remove it from the floor silently is the best thing ever, and it makes me go "wow that was all in my carpet before." 😮

poll for ppl with vision problems, :boosts_ok: 

when getting your eyesight tested, have you only seen the paper with letters of decreasing sizes, or the machine with a picture of bright grass, sunny light blue sky and a house/air balloon in the middle?

I tried to use Firefox as my main browser, and I managed a few days, but the typing lag and the part where everything is so much slower with 25% of the extensions/add-ons (especially Google Sheets, which I basically use to manage my entire life) just broke me. I'm back on Chrome.

It's gone up by just under 600 signatures, and that curve is looking quite ~exponential~

You don't have an inalienable right to grow every plant. The future of our planet is more important than your 'need' to grow a plant in peat-based compost.

Plants that need peat should stay in the peat-bogs/their habitats. There are millions of other plants you can grow, and there are great peat-free composts available.

#PeatFree #Peat #Compost #Gardening #Plants

I feel like I should mention that there are already a couple of petitions about peat on the petition site. It's just that I don't understand why none of them go far enough!

(When the petition has 21 signatures it won't be able to get any more until it's been approved by the petitions people, so if the link doesn't work that might be why.)
