Hackers.town is doin' it again.
I was going to start a new t-shirt fundraiser to try to recoup the remaining costs of server upgrades for this joint... But then Europe got complicated.
I don't need these funds, I'll be fine without them, but the people of Ukraine need all the help they can get.
We are selling these t-shirts, I think they are pretty cool. You can also donate to the fundraiser at the same page even if you don't want a shirt.
All proceeds from this sale will be donated to UNICEFUSA, with an earmark for aiding Ukrainian children and families displaced by this unspeakable violence and betrayal.
We as a community have been mighty, now it's time to be mighty for someone else, again.
Be the rust upon their gears... indeed.
The club I'm in probably has the worst DJ in the whole country, goddamn this is appaling. #saturdayNightFiverr

Very true 💯
The American pundits who can’t resist “Westsplaining” Ukraine. John Mearsheimer and other foreign policy figures are treating Russia’s invasion of Ukraine like a game of “Risk.” For Eastern European scholars like us, it’s galling to watch the unending stream of Western scholars and pundits condescend to explain the situation in #Ukraine and Eastern Europe, often in ways that either ignore voices from the region, treating it as an object rather than a subject of history, or claiming to perfectly understand Russian logic and motives. Eastern European online circles have started using a new term to describe this phenomenon of people from the Anglosphere loudly foisting their analytical schema and political prescriptions onto the region: “westsplaining.” And the problem with “westsplaining” is illustrated particularly well when pundits westsplain the role of the eastward expansion of #NATO in triggering #Russia’s attack.

I don't know how to articulate my feelings about the invasion of Ukraine, so here's a dump:
- I hope everyone there is as safe as possible; no one should have to endure such horrors, anywhere, for any reason
- I am already very disappointed by the non-reactions to this act of agression amomg the "international community"
- monads and other "leftist" morons who will root for any imperialism as long as it's not their own empire's: fuck you
- don't you dare come at me with any form of whataboutism
I write bugs for a living, pretty cool eh?
