i hate the notion that to make a website today you need to either use a service or a framework
you really don't
please handcraft more HTML
we do a lil boosting :>
(particularly cos i kinda wanted to post them to my twitter main but irl friends and a couple relatives follow me there and i'm not sure i wanna deal with that yet)
I kind of wish that my #engineering course had a #design module. But not an "engineering design" module that deals with systems and stuff. Just a module going over how to come up with ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing things and how to make things a joy to use.
So much of engineering stuff is straight up ugly or uncomfortable to use.
I'm not really talking about products aimed at consumers those usually are ok but internal tools and software and ides for hardware are seriously obtuse.
mutual aid request, help a trans guy get out of the USA
So I'm emigrating out of the country.
I've got a plane ticket and a place to stay, and I'm determined to not come back. As a transgender person, it feels like I've got a target on my back, and that sense ramps up every month now.
I've got part-time tech support gigs to help this happen, as I keep studying towards my tech certifications and looking for full-time remote work. But it's tight, and it's likely to stay that way for awhile.
I'm asking for any money contributions you're able to make, to help me afford this huge move. I'm trying to budget for things like extra medicine to take with me, which is gonna cost a couple hundred dollars out of pocket.
I know you all have helped me before, bigtime. I hope you can see that it's working out, I'm very close to being in a place where I'm finally safe.
Even if you don't have any way to help financially, thanks for just being supportive in general. The whole thing is scary, but I've planned so hard. I wanna get out and help others, too.
Boosts appreciated, friends. Hope you're having a decent weekend. 💙✨
