new rule for myself

i do not get to criticize something unless i have done a lot of research into how and why it works, and also how it came to be

there is almost always more to it than the immediately apparent, and there might be interesting opportunities in either the thing itself or in the components that comprise the thing applied in a different way

i quit being human some time ago, now i'm something more and something less. by my own choice and my own hand, even.

also, hey.

just so y'all are clear: this isn't an alt. this is my new main. ^_^;

even if it looks functionally the same as my old one on

obvious hot take, meta 

btw, if i didn't make this clear enough: if you do not think otherkin or furries or queer people are valid, if you don't think that people have a right to self-authorship and insist that all we can ever be is one kind of thing, then you are not my comrade.

what if: wasd everywhere

Request for help, to CDL A drivers, Denver/Colorado Springs Colorado area, ELDT, boosts requested 

I had my CDL A a few years back. Like, 2015 was when I finally quit after about three years on the road. I am trying to get back into it because a friend needs a local CDL A driver and I want to do it.

Due to the new rules by the FMCSA (ELDT), the local schools are fucking swamped and not accepting refresher course drivers who only need a couple days.

Since the schools are swamped and I need to get my license back sooner than later, I only have a couple options. One: I take the test dry after as much mental preparation as I can. Two: I ask for help from a local driver who can work with me in renting a Ryder rig and sit with me while I go through and brush up on my skills before the test.

I need about a day and a half with the rig. Half a day on the road, and a day doing skills. I did plenty of docking when I first drove, so I'm not super worried about that side of backing and parking. My biggest worry is parallel parking, hence needing to work on that.

Are there any drivers near Denver or Colorado Springs or even Pueblo who would be willing to help me out with this? I understand it's a pretty serious ask but this isn't my first rodeo, I just need some practice first.

(Please boost if you can. If you are a driver and are willing to help me out here, a DM would be hugely appreciated in a reply on this thread.)

what if guix but turned towards packaging minecraft mods? as a kind of cool hack, since polymc is on my mind

rebuilding the entirety of the guix world, just so i can have geiser actually know wtf is going on when i want to type

this is absolutely going up on github, btw.

my dotfiles have grown way way way out of hand ;w;

instead i'm cobbling together my own operating system from guix, arcan and emacs

MultiMC just dropped CurseForge/FTB support

PolyMC has ditched the problematic maintainers, adopted a CoC, now has new cool features, and allows custom builds and redistribution, so

it's time to switch to PolyMC if you haven't already

the funny thing is that i would absolutely be a 9front user if i didnt have to, like, exist in the world with people who aren't that

the cool thing about emacs is that you have a tool for working with pretty much any api

and things like reading articles are so incredibly much nicer done as plaintext in a buffer, when it works at all

feels closer to an actually usable workflow

dang, apparently nvidia actually released some source code for their linux graphics drivers... finally

the gnu system is like communism

it still isn't fully built yet

it's a sad fact of the world that it's so much easier to destroy than it is to create
