Oh shit we've finally made it!

.....
into a mandatory force-set-as-sensitive instance.

...we don't even post that many lewds and when we do they're marked NSFW *shruggie*.

WE'VE STILL MADE IT‽‽‽

(also checking 'em out to see if we need to take any action here)

So save me the bullshit about how much y'all want DIVERSITY and SAFETY because my close to three years here have tells me the exact opposite.

Until I see folks calling out their racist friends because yall know who they are, I'm going to read it as all performative.

Until I see folks exposing the lies their favorite PROGRESSIVES are posting publicly but saying the opposite behind closed doors, I don't want to hear it.

Until I see racists/sexist afraid on the fedi, it's all bullshit.

Oh wow... as an admin I should probably regularly review my settings. I didn't realize I'd not enabled showing domain blocks and reasoning publicly.

I've now done that.

@memnus Saw you Civv'n it up earlier but I was guts deep in my system. Turns out I needed to take my motherboard out due to a loose mount (for a universal Thermaltake CPU mounting bracket) so a 15 minute video card swap ended up in a 75 minute yargh fest.

We have a game going I think right? I'm game to try continuing it some time over the next couple nights if you are.

So I'm back to mining Ethereum.

Building a plex server meant I had an always on system so who am I to not also use it to mine?

Dropped a couple RX 580 8GB I grabbed for $220 earlier today into the system and after three hours (!?!) of tweaking I'm now using 170w total to mine just under 60 MH/s.

No I'm not going to use the dual bios option on the card because I want to game on these too and don't want to reboot just to play games.

UPTIME PEOPLE.

@DianaTourjee@twitter.com thread on trans attracted cis men & visibility 

as much as we've been sitting around jerking ourselves off on friday night delights it feels like it's time to invite trans women to talk about it with the respect it deserves.

...then crack stupid jokes with us on fnls.

@DianaTourjee@twitter.com thread on trans attracted cis men & visibility 

So I'm going to need to do some real listening / digging on this. I'm pretty openly attracted to trans women, but also (considering how much I talk about butt stuff and group sex) relatively quiet about
it.

Consciousness about causing harm by fetishizing trans women has driven that path more than anything else.

@DianaTourjee@twitter.com thread on trans attracted cis men & visibility 

Almost every other call for visibility I can think of means yelling it off the rooftops, so a call to visibility via simple every day admission really surprised me.

I'm also not 100% how to teach that
to other cis dudes or practice it since my understanding up to now has been to be very conscious about crossing into chaser territory, and...

holy shit I'd feel bad if someone i talked to ventured there.

@DianaTourjee@twitter.com thread on trans attracted cis men & visibility 

Just read this thread on Twitter:
twitter.com/dianatourjee/statu

Knowing no single person needs to take the weight of responsibility on her shoulders to answer...

Removing celebrity men from the equation for a moment, I'm a little stunned (as in, knocked back into my chair a little bit saying "huh") at @DianaTourjee@twitter.com's desire for more cis men to speak up about fucking trans women.

I bought a 3440x1440 monitor and I'm already seeing productivity improvements. It's going to pay for itself so it's not a splurge but I didn't expect it to be THAT much better than having ex 1920x1080 panels.

A little local bookkeeping announcement:

We've defederated from social.byoblu.com for good ol' fashioned white supremacy and aggressive transphobia.

A small bright spot:
My pre-order of Burnout Paradise: Remastered arrived and I my son is checking it out.

Mobile clients:

I’ve loved Amaroq for quite a while but it’s not iPadOS native and it feels long in the tooth.

Anyone have recommendations for a new, more modern feeling client that supports iPadOS?

I’d consider support a nice to have but I assume there aren’t any clients that directly support it yet.

nerds getting mad over a few open source projects finally replacing the master/slave terminology for processes is the most pathetic nerd shit imaginable. changing the terms affects nothing in terms of how the software runs. It literally changes nothing but creates a slightly more welcoming environment for non-white programmers.

It's incredibly sad and frustrating seeing these assholes vociferously defending something so completely unimportant.
