I'm kind of annoyed that "self-care" has become conflated with "treat yourself". Yes, sometimes treating yourself can be an act of self care

But most of prioritizing self care is meeting your core needs. It's telling yourself it's ok to take time to eat a healthy meal or take a shower. It's making sure you put the things you need to be healthy at a higher priority

The whole "self care is luxuries" captialist takeover of an important mental health concept just chaps me

I keep forgetting to post this.

I'm running an auction to help human trafficking survivors purge their records.

Winner gets the sole available copy of "FreeBSD Mastery: Jails - Bail Bond Denied" edition. Ends 25 September.

Boosts appreciated.

I will provide the English version and then the mandarin one (less than 500 characters, by far), probably full of mistakes. I want to send it to a dear friend, so all help is welcome.

I can translate stuff to Spanish in exchange.

Boosts are appreciated!

As seen on twitter:

"My company does this icebreaker thing where every week a different person sends an email to the whole company talking about their average day, and today's coworker started his "I wake up each day furious to be laboring under capitalism" and it has caused quite a stir."

omg this is so cool, a dinosaur found almost perfectly preserved.

"The creature’s skin, armor, and even some of its guts were intact – something they’d never seen before. ... the preservation was so good that researchers were able to tell the dinosaur’s skin color by using mass spectrometry techniques to detect the actual pigments"

This isn’t entirely about GitHub Copilot, but it was the straw that broke the camels back. I’ve watched the world of free software (and tech in general) become twisted and perverted over the years and this is my attempt to amputate some of that rot without loosing the patient entirely.

Back around 1993, I wrote a TTRPG called "SLUGS" - the Satanic, Loathsome, Unwholesome Game System. Only 200 were ever made. About 20 pages, copied & stapled.

Today, folks pointed me at a FB discussion about that game. It has fans.

Put your weird out there. People will love it.

There was something in the water.

She gripped the edge of the boat so hard her hands cramped. Below, something stirred among the murk. Something fleet and strange and many-armed.

She should row away but it was large -- too large to escape.

A glistening tentacle, pimpled with suckers, burst out of the water and waved in the air a moment, tapered tip curling.

She stared up at it, eyes wide with terror.

It descended toward her face.

And very gently booped her nose.

Labor strike 

The Frito-Lay strikers do ask for boycott.

If you think people shouldn't be forced to work for 84 hours in a week, and that employees should be given yearly raises, this is the boycott to join... conditions were extremely bad, they didn't stop production after a death, and the union is failing to finalize a contract.

Frito-Lay is Pepsi-Co, so Snapple, Gatorade, Starbucks, Lipton, Quaker, Cheetos, Bubly, Mountain Dew, sodastream etc etc

Maybe pick up a pen.
