Covid 

I kinda miss when everyone was panicking and buying up all the toilet paper. That made more sense than the current effort to reopen everything.

I’m slowly coming to terms that all work potentially sucks and the current system is coercive and that I won’t be able work at my own pace and on my own terms and I’m disabled so I’m at a disadvantage anyway and I just feel anxious and depressed about this today.

youtube-dl is one of my favorite pieces of community-maintained open-source software. Despite the name, now works on many sites – youtube, vimeo, even Twitter. You do "youtube-dl URL" and it figures out how to get you a local, offline copy of the video. youtube-dl.org/

asking for lit magazine recommendations, :boost_ok: 

- what I want: a print lit/poetry journal either featuring queer writers exclusively, or featuring women exclusively (and they are explicit and vocal about trans women being women)

- what would be a 2nd best option: same but in epub or other reflowable format for ebook readers

- what I found: uuuh Room?

Hey!

Do any of y'all happen to remember what the URL was for a site that hosted Quotations of Mao Zedong? It was all pastel and cute and the url was something like "lilred.xyz" or something?

@dankwraith yeah i mean you can think about all education this way; the reason education is valuable is because the world is full of infinite fractal beauty and complexity and a lifetime of learning about it is the best way to spend your limited time on earth, but instead we just think of education as a glorified job training program

I'm looking for recommendations of history books or other nonfiction books about specific indigenous nations written by people from those nations.

I'm a librarian and our local school kids regularly have "pick an indigenous nation to write about" assignments but we only have settler-written histories when it comes to specific nations (we do have An Indigenous History of the United States for Young People B"H but for the homework they need to be more detailed about specific nations)

You seem small in comparison to this brain of metal and lightning. You walk forward, clutching your small card as the machines hum and blip beside you. You gently insert it into the proper slot, and then turn your crank/press the button/whatever it is begin computation.

The overall physicality of it seem refreshing to my laptop-tired mind.

When you think you've got it, you take out your hole punch (!) and pop it onto your final card. You then get up, and walk over to the computer room.
