@ericmann I miss wrenching on cars and motorcycles. Sounds more like fun than adulting to me. Our Fiat is such a pain to change the oil on that we’ve given up at this point.

@david nice! Enjoy! My vacation just ended on Tuesday and I’m still as burned out as I was before it started, lol

Back to work tomorrow morning. I really need to find a way to change things up in general before I lose my mind.

@hankg Oh nice. We’re right off Siesta Key. It wasn’t horrible when we moved here but, anymore, they advertise the area as a conservative destination. I hate going in anywhere around here.

@curtismchale ha! Our download isn’t bad but even gigabit service here has a 10mb upload cap. It’s infuriating

I went to Publix by myself and, for the 1st time in at least 1.5 years, I wasn’t sworn at, spat on or otherwise harassed for wearing a mask. I’ll call that a win.

homophobia, important 

Please keep an eye out for people trying to brand monkeypox as a "gay disease", explicit or otherwise, and push back hard and early!

I've already started seeing the same kind of "the damn gays fucking everywhere" rhetoric that also popped up during the first years of the AIDS epidemic in the US. That rhetoric was directly responsible for (tens of?) thousands of deaths.

We absolutely *cannot* afford to let homophobes gain control over the public narrative around monkeypox, and let them use it to once again kill queer folks by denying them crucially important healthcare. :boosts_ok_gay:

Fedifriends at scholar.social, I have some funding available and ideally would like to spend it on conferences/workshops around tech, ethics & social sustainability (the more interdisciplinary the better) - any suggestions?

@jle @kev I feel like I know way to many people who would do this and take it seriously. They can barely even get out of bed if it’s not in their “book of life” that tells them how they should live every second.

Hey #Fosstodon, does anyone here know of a beginning developer, in need, that could use a #Linux laptop gratis? I have a Starlabs Laptop IV that I don't use. Please boost for visibility.

I just got some very angry hate mail from someone claiming that our complexity requirements are a violation of his freedoms because his password is copyrighted.

I’m convinced that some people believe words don’t mean anything, they’re just some strange magic runes you invoke like a spell to get your way.

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');
[...]
}

@ndanes ha. After 10 years of posts it was a bit easier to go all in.
