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.

LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO HELP ME CORRECTLY WRITE A SHORT LETTER IN MANDARIN (simplified) .
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!

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.
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.
This week in KDE: The #SteamDeck has landed! + the System Monitor now displays sensor loads and massive stability and usability improvements across the board.
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.
