A bit about how we became reliant on praise as children which eventually sabotaged us. I’m not sure I’m 100% with this but I think there is good to be found here.

Thank you @zigg

Domestic abuse is spiking due to lockdown orders (by approximately 40%, seemingly.)

If you are in the UK or US and are unable to speak out loud on a 999/911 call, you have some options.

UK:

call 999 and, once your call is picked up, press 55. it will ask you a couple of things to confirm but you will not have to speak. Police will be sent to you.

you can text 999. to do this, you need to first register your phone number. text "Register" to 999 and follow the instructions it sends back. then you will be able to send normal texts to 999.

US:

in many places, you can just text 911 straight away. here is a list from the FCC of places that support this (updated monthly) fcc.gov/files/text-911-master-

Hey I have a friend who’s fighting stage 3 Lyme disease and NEEDS donations in order to survive. This is life or death. Can y’all plz take a minute to donate if you can and boost this? Destin can’t leave their home due to seizures, low energy levels, having trouble walking, etc. all due to Lyme.

They need an oxygen concentrator which are ridiculously expensive, but they are having so much trouble breathing it’s become necessary. It’s really important that they get one.

I know that if we all boost this and donate a couple bucks then they can get the care they need. I donated $25 which was all I can afford really, so now I’m sharing. My friend really needs help so please boost! Especially because they are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus due to Lyme... it’s really important that they get the medical care they need.

What does it mean when a site asks me to compile a captcha when accessing it through the tor browser ?

Wow did you know about @gnome Bonsai? This looks so promising!

It's a project that would allow developers to make apps that don't rely on any '"cloud" service to synchronize objects between your devices.

ma il blue ray è attuale ? O è in via d'estinzione ?

Is Blue Ray still current ? Or is it estinguishing ?

I have a desire to re watch old stuff, stuff I have watched already, not new things

I wanna watch Space 1999 and Riptide

But the torrents are all abandoned 😕

mi viene voglia di vedere cose vecchie, già viste. Non nuove

Vorrei Spazio 1999 e Riptide

Ma i torrent sono tutti abbandonati 😕

I have a faulty ethernet cable

So I can't move the laptop in the living room. It can only stay near the bed

I bought the machine to crimp it and some rj46 connectors

But it would be the first time in my life and I'm afraid

If I screw this I'll remain off line 😟

DIY Media ajroach42.com/diy-media/. Something to consider since 90% of media is controlled by people who actively make creative works more difficult to do on the Web and stifle privacy. I wanna see if I can make it a goal to increase the amount of independent works I support. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/8096cc33-c6b)

is being made more like twotter ?

How so ?

What did I miss ?

it’s real important to give yourself credit. it’s really hard to do that in a lot of cases for so many reasons but sometimes you just need to stop and look at everything you’ve done, everything you’ve gone through, small things, huge things, things people know, things they don’t, & see that you’re here.

Really starting to get back into #Gemini, the document protocol that's lighter than the web, but more featureful than #Gopher. Was up late writing on my topical #gemlog: "President Xi, Send The Nukes" (gemini://carcosa.net/send-the-nukes/), and I'm exhausted this morning. Listening to the spring Konpeito mix (gemini://konpeito.media/) to wake up and chill. :coffeepot: 🚀
