Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

The installation manual of WordStar 3.0 for CP/M, published in 1981, is a 138 pages document that includes also Assembly code listings. Gasp.

uspol fascism and me being angry 

the fucking reason why the "first they came for" poem exists is because fascism ain't no spare nobody who is not white, cis, hetero, allosexual, Christian and rightoid.

we all - non-white, poor, LGBTQ, women, disabled, neurodivergent, leftists and many others - are in the same boat.

and if someone attacks one of us, it means they attack all of us.

ReCAPTCHA returning correct responses as invalid always irritates me to an undue degree.

*Not only* are you using me as free labour to train your machine learning system, but *then* you're refusing to accept as valid a correct reading of road markings, which doesn't bode well for your autonomous vehicles, matey.

Stop treating trans and nonbinary people like a technicality that can be ignored.

Hi!

My family and I need to get out of Oklahoma. The amount of transphobia here is frightening, and the laws for trans people seem to get worse and worse.

Help a trans family escape to somewhere safe with a support network?

I sell coreboot, and coreboot accessories. With Debian Linux. These are secure machines, and coreboot is well-audited.

These computers are free as in freedom, right down to the boot firmware, booting linux/bsd on the bare metal:

My web shop is here:

I'm the author of osboot, the version of coreboot that comes installed. It replaces proprietary UEFI firmware, and has many advanced features that you can learn about here:

Accepting to “go with the flow of things” despite knowing that the “flow” is harmful is silent endorsement. I see this with so many things—from browser choice on devices to allowing people to have consent over their bodies. Taking choice from people implies that their choice never mattered to begin with.

@cstanhope @cwebber people not paying attention will be really surprised at how sudden fascism rises and how fast it spreads

@RadioAngel the rise of fascism is going to seem really sudden and really fast to a lot of people who aren't paying any attention to the supreme court.

@rysiek Like, take lanes away from cars. Replace them with functional sidewalks and bike paths/lanes. There is a main thoroughfare a couple blocks over here that they did this to a year or two ago. It used to be a 4 lane road with a lot of traffic. Now it is 2 lanes with still quite a lot of traffic but they did a before and after study and it turns out that 90% of trip times down that road didn't change and the 10% that got slower weren't significantly slower. But it made walking/cycling on or around that road MUCH better.

Hot take seen on :birdsite: "Gonna be very weird if Supreme Court ends a constitutional right to obtain an abortion next week, saying it should be left to the States to decide, right after it just imposed a constitutional right to concealed carry of firearms, saying it cannot be left to the States to decide"

Oh ha ha, check mate! Such embarassing, many lolz, silly rightwingers!

🤦‍♀️

JFC, just stop already. Republicans never argued any of this in good faith. How is this not obvious. Ffs!
