@joelschurter @ademalsasa xfce user here. The more desktops that are widely available the better. People should be able to find the tool that fits them best, not have to adapt to the one or two tools that are available.

Hey everyone, I finally got a job that i start tomorrow, which means this will hopefully be the last time i have to do this. Even tho i'm starting my job tomorrow, i will not have rent on time for September, which i need $200 for
i also need $150 to take my dog to the vet and get vaccine boosters, he is allowed to come to work with me and it is a high priority that he's able to as he helps me with my anxiety and also cannot be home alone due to not getting along with one of the other dogs in the house

I really appreciate everything y'all have done for me, and im hoping to be able to give back soon

Ubuntu users, please take note, and boost if possible, this bug report about installer issues with Orca. The OS installer is the first thing many users will experience of an OS, and since, for better or worse, Ubuntu is the "flagship" end-user-facing Linux distro, accessibility should be kinda important. I know, volunteers and accessibility don't pay the bills and all that. Whatever. I'm done discussing that, I'm tired of excuses. Below is a link to the bug report:

OnlyFans is suspending their planned policy change that would have banned sexual material on their website twitter.com/OnlyFans/status/14

PSA because some people don't seem to know that. Those weird barcodes found on letters contain your zip/postal code (which in some places can point to really specific location). You may want to blur them out when posting photos of letters online.

So Twitter blocks clicking around on their site without logging in now...

Funnily enough, simply just blocking cookies for the domain removes all of that and you can use it like normal. Wonder how long that'll last.

Common sense and the Texas power grid
For better or worse, this sat around in my draft queue for longer than I had wanted. But I still consider it timely, as I haven't heard anything new about the underlying problem and what's been done to solve it.

As recently reported in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (among many other news outlets), a rather disturbing...

BitTorrent info
From time to time, I may link to files associated with posts which are available via BitTorrent (magnet links). Without getting overly technical, BitTorrent is a technology which allows files to be shared without the use of something like a web server; computers or devices share the files directly among each other using a "seed file" (filename ending in ".torrent") which contains the file names, file sizes, and enough information...

Ten years of Trenta at Starbucks: a retrospective
So apparently it's been a whole decade since Starbucks rolled out the Trenta size beverages, judging by the date of my previous post "To Starbucks, size matters". A lot has changed since then, but as the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

note from the toot-lab: if you are currently following this account from an instance operated by Eugen, I apologize, but you've got until Friday to find another home or get used to the idea of not seeing the toot-lab anymore because I'm sick of his bullshit and I'm yeeting his gargantuan shitholes into /dev/null on Saturday morning to start my day off right.

it's not you; it's him.

thanks for understanding.

The Dylan M. versus Google incident, ten years later
So it was ten years ago this month I wrote two posts about one Dylan M. and the sudden disabling of his Google account over some photos (under the titles "When 'the cloud' delivers a thunderstorm" and "Warm bodies are still smarter than silicon...
