tech, VirtualBox 

If you enable EFI for a VBox Virtual Machine, after correctly installing a OS into the virtual storage you might not be able to boot from the virtual optical disk any more.

The solution is to quickly press ESC after booting (or resetting) the VM, which opens the firmware setup screen, and then selecting the optical drive from the Boot Manager.

Need help w/pain & health 

Could you pretty please help me? :blobcatblush:

I need 80€ for meds this month + 75€ for the psychiatrist + 45€ for the dentist because I have yet another tooth killing me with pain.

And 60€ for a couple of extra physio sessions bc ever since the first covid shot my back pain levels rose up and are not going back down even almost a month later. :blobbroken:


Boosts & donations are very welcome and appreciated, IF you can! :blobcatheart:

asking for money help, boosts needed :boost_ok: 


i need $70 for groceries (asking for more than usual since DD just had knee surgery and can't drive so i have to order them) and $80 for medical weed

i didn't get the 2nd and 3rd stimulus because my abusive parents claimed me as a dependent to steal them. i tried filing my taxes but they got rejected, and the credit card application i needed to confirm my identity got rejected too, so i'm gonna be calling the IRS at some point when i have the energy and such

i've been trying to find a job video editing or something, i can't work anywhere facing the public because i have asthma and if i catch covid i'll die excruciatingly




thank you so much for saving my life multiple times and continuing to keep me alive, fediverse!!! :black_sparkles: :blacker_heart:

Investigative reporting on Telegram channels finds that yes, the 'no kink at pride' debate is being used as a wedge by the right.

We're all in agreement that the most insecure and pathetic men are the ones that are using words like "alpha/beta" and that are calling women "females", right?

OpenAI has granted me my request to access GPT-3’s private beta, so one of the things I did was recreate @RumPartov with it

I think it’s a little bit less funny because it makes more sense, but pushing it around like you’re a nosy journalist can produce pretty humorous results while still sounding rather natural

Please boost as a reminder to the many, many creators who design pins and flags for literally every other identity, for people who forget or don't know that we are failed by the medical system the instant we're born, and for the rest of our lives, again and again.
We go into the hospital and say we're cis or trans, because otherwise we WILL be refused treatment out of hand.
Intersex People Exist, and we have a place in pride.

shitposting, bad advice 

Why would you need an HEPA filter when you've got nose hairs??

Asexuality has nothing to do with repressive ideas of sexual virtue. Aces are not more self-controlled, we do not necessarily refrain from sex, we are not waiting for the "right" person to come along, and we are not all monogamous. Moralizing our lack of sexual attraction does not help us and only feeds into slut-shaming rhetoric.
