I despise my past self. I have written a lot of stuff I'm not proud of The thought of someone reading those scares me
These fears haunted me for so long until one day I decided to physically burn down 100s of pages of my old works.the fear of being wrong still haunts me. I'm afraid to write down anything.everytime I finish something i have the urge to keep it private or just burn it down, the tooting bird will take away my posts forever and I'm afraid I can't call it back.
Rambling, freedom, subtoot, politics
FLOSS and the idea of software freedom is a political statement. Politics also evolve as humanity evolves.
At it's heart though, you can't go wrong with the idea of Freedom of the Commons over individual freedom.
Freedom means different things to different people. Humanity survives by cooperation, so individual liberty is meaningless if it comes at the expense of others. Like everything it's a balance.
There's a reason for the golden rule.
To clarify some potential misconceptions:
This account is for updates about Lemmy development. We wont discuss about politics here.
Lemmy.ml is not a flagship instance. If you disagree with the rules, either look for another instance or make your own. Thats the whole point of federation. More details: https://lemmy.ml/post/70280
discord is a corporation
the developer of discord.py is formally deprecating the project, and the only path forward would be for someone else to make a different version under a new name.
essentially, they've been in a constant battle with Discord staff and had their requests completely ignored, and with the latest changes to the API, they have lost all motivation to work on the project. because no one else they trust was able to take over ownership, they're shutting it down.
they made a big post on GitHub about it if you want to read the full story. it's a mess: https://gist.github.com/Rapptz/4a2f62751b9600a31a0d3c78100287f1
from what it seems, there's a good chance that a lot of major Discord bots will not work when the deadline in April 2022 comes by and Discord wants all the bots to switch to the new API. and there's not much you can really do about it
techy; I made a thing!
now that my gitea server isn't horribly unstable I'm finally starting to release some of the work I've been doing over the past few months.
first one is a rust crate called viro!
Loads your environment so you don't have to.
Offers a data structure for serializing and deserializing environment variables, to allow for easy loading of /etc/profile scripts in non-POSIX shells like fish. The viro binary is only available for unix-based systems at the moment; see the "Roadmap" section of this README for details.
A sober, careful critique of the CMIE Pyramids Household surveys. As official Indian data systems fail us, we rely more on sources like this, which may be misleading. @_CMIE should revisit sample and methodology to get more representative and realistic.
I read about the history of pleroma instances and the origin of the project now it makes sense why https://cawfee.club/ is a shithole
Terrific essay by @UpmanyuAditi. Much of what she says can be applied to other canonised male writers, even if not in such extreme form. So glad that young women are finally calling this out. https://livewire.thewire.in/out-and-about/books/misogyny-entitlement-and-my-inability-to-read-v-s-naipaul/ via @livewire
