A friend of mine (basically my only remaining irl friend tbh) just texted me something really sweet and nice and I really really needed that today
Anybody else noticed that over the course of the 2010s, every new piece of hip new American English slang from the humble "yass qween" to the sophisticated "on fleek" has followed the same cycle of
- Being coined by black women
- Appropriated from black women by white gay men
- Appropriated from white gay men by white wine moms
@y6nH I feel like it'd get raided very regularly :(
linux, encryption advice ask, boostable Show more
I wanna dualboot windows 8 and linux, and encrypt the linux installation so windows (and any malware on it's partition) won't be able to compromize my linux install.
Is there a way to either encrypt my ENTIRE installation (including /boot and /boot/efi), or to verify the integrity of the unencrypted /boot and /boot/efi during the boot process?
From what I've heard option 1 isn't a possibility, so basically does anyone know of a way to perform option 2?
For all trans people that use binders and have trouble with it: you can speak to an orthopedic technician and try a compression garment used for gynecomastia post-op. It's designed to avoid rib, muscle or nerve damage and safe to use all day except for sleeping.

a lot of y'all try but it's also clear you don't *get* it, vis a vis chronic pain and illness
you're, like, fine, but it can be annoying sometimes.
that said the only solution I know of is "suffer a debilitating injury that lasts a month or more" and, despite how bitter I can come off about the topic, I don't ACTUALLY wish that on anyone, abled or not.
It's just something to think about, I guess
especially when your disabled friends vent about what's going on with them
feel free to boost
@DragonessDella here's one good link for you: https://medium.com/solarpunks/solarpunk-a-reference-guide-8bcf18871965
That covers the history pretty extensively! The sunbeam.city wiki (https://wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php) has puesto aggregated a ton of good info.
As for fiction, check out Solarpunk Press and World Weaver Press, who've put out some short stories and a number of anthologies. Kim Stanley Robinson is often cited as solarpunk-adjacent, but I haven't read him. Let me search some more!
