Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.
Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: https://dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop.html

meanwhile on another project.... i'm wrapping up a set of changes that simultaneously fix a very old problem, and introduce a new layer of potential confusion, because we are straight up underwater in technical debt. i keep trying to work it off in little bits and pieces, but actually the better choice for my mental health is to stop accepting work for this client who will never learn new things or prioritize fixing this stuff!

Longshot but does anyone here play Ascension for ios?
work, anxiety still Show more
lol i thought i was on track to recover gracefully from slightly panicking on friday about my workload and obligations, put in some important commits this morning on a project, but i just led a video call to demo a new feature i'm building for a client, and i was a sweaty stammering mess because apparently i'm still anxious and panicky!

Y'know if 1 person just 1 person blocks bigots, folk might think she's really sick and they won't like er.
An if 2 do it, folk might think they're both weirdos and they won't like either of 'em.
An if 3 do it; can you imagine 3 of us sittin down blocking bigots and carryin on? Folk might think its an organization.
An can you imagine 50 people a day? I say 50 people a day sittin down blockin bigots and carryin on?
food, climate alarmism Show more
fucked up to know that one day I'll eat the last banana of my life without even knowing it, and then it'll be twenty years of scrabbling by on acorns, squash, and crickets
