Pinned toot

I got called an "" today. Granted, it was in relation to the unsupported use of woo-medicines, but it was still the proudest moment of my life.

Pinned toot

Am I the only one who would be really happy if they could live in a curses-based UI all the time?

Encryption is like vaccination: it's not about protecting you from a leak, it is about protecting our society from a dictatorship.

I'm pretty sure that if I were an ancient Roman my name would have been Gasius Maximus.

For my first actual , I'd like to recommend you follow all my fellow people:


Special mention to @koosli who while currently expat, is "from WA" πŸ˜†

Anyone reading this who I haven't marked as a Perthie, let me know... I think I'll start a list.

i sure could fucking go for a labor union right now

I've been dreaming of a good Lemmings clone for a while. Rabbit Escape fits the bill nicely...

Everyone knows you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But when I saw this picture in the teaser for an article on the Religious Discrimination bill I knew which side of the debate he was coming down on.

peeps... I'd like to move away from my Big4 bank and would prefer a credit union. Are there any real, local, member-owned credit unions around now? Failing that, any banks that are linked with or supported by labour unions?

Too many boosts, and not enough toots on my timeline (my personal timeline, ie that which I contribute to the fediverse). When I see that from others I tend to "hide boosts from this user on my home timeline". Maybe I should practice what I preach.

people should caption their images for obvious reasons

but it also helps for when technical issues prevent an image from loading, or for calling out subtle visual humor or details which some viewers might otherwise miss

thank you for taking the extra 11 seconds too caption your images folks

everyone deserves to see a doctor for free

preventative medicine/healthcare should also be massively prioritised

so many lives could be saved and massively improved through simple measures that capitalism has no interest in implementing

anarchism/communism knows that almost all misery and sickness is entirely optional

Why AM/PM is a bad idea:

- It's more complicated.
- Is 12:00 PM in the morning or evening? I don't know.
- 12:00 PM followed by 12:01 AM, WTF?
- Which date does 12:00 PM belong to?

Benefits of 24-hour clock:

- Simple, hours run from 00 to 23.
- 12:00 is noon.
- 00:00 is midnight of the subsequent day
- 24:00 is the exact same time, but on the previous day

Thus, it's obvious what point in time I'm referring to when I say 7'th Oct 00:00.

Now, let's fix DST.

Sometimes in programming we expect one result but get another.

We call this boolshit.
