ME awareness day: what does "fatigue" feel like 

ME/CFS got saddled with a name that sucks. u say "chronic fatigue" and everyone's like "oh big mood" because tbf everyone is tired all the time in the late capitalist hellscape. so what's it feel like being on the receiving end of the "fatigue" in "CFS"?
at a metabolic level, it's something to do with an interaction of the immune system, the nervous system, the mitochondria. it's permanent, constant, there is literally no way to refresh ur energy.

It's okay to be messy. It's okay to be unpolished. It's okay to be a whole real person.

Party time! (Well, actually — the party is on Friday and Saturday. See you there?)

"How can I better accommodate this disabled employee?" (Or contractor, volunteer, friend, or self?) The Job Accommodation Network is a fantastic site to get your ideas flowing.

The #pandemic is far from over. Cases are low but rising again. It takes many lines of defense to protect against #COVID19. The #SwissCheeseModel of virus pandemic defense.

1. What could conferences better do to support you?

2. What policies or resources would help you decide whether to attend an in-person conference?

The makers of @pixelfed, the Fediverse photo sharing platform, have just created a slick new guide to the Fediverse at:

It's got a list of Fedi projects, a list of mobile apps for Fedi platforms and an opt-in directory of people to follow.

The directory is particularly interesting as it works very differently to FediFollows or Trunk. You add hashtags to your profile plus a special extra hashtag #Fedi22, then submit your profile to the site, and it will become searchable for the tags in your profile.

(And, yes, Mastodon is part of the Fediverse, see here for details:

Arch Linux, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and Fedora Rawhide get a lot of attention — but my favorite rolling release is Katamari.

Every time the cockatoo departs, it does this funny backwards dive off the ledge.

"Tainted Love," but instead of those two strong chords punctuating it, there's a goose.

Sometimes I feel I've got to~

Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.

There is no inherent shame in failure, in not knowing, or in being wrong, and we shouldn't actively shame others for it.

Get back up, learn something new, and try again.

Tip: if you’re using the new GNOME Console and Fish shell, you don’t have to wait until the GNOME folks have colour schemes implemented if you want to customise yours.

fisher install FabioAntunes/base16-fish-shell

Then, in your console, type base16<tab> to see the list of different colour schemes you can try.

#GNOME #console #fedora #silverblue #terminal

If you created your account a long time ago, you may be seeing Mastodon's advanced web interface (multiple columns). That interface has not been the default for years now. You can control which one you see from Preferences.

MyPaint is a Free and Open Source art software that focuses on distraction-free digital painting, with lots of keyboard shortcuts and a minimalist expanding canvas. It's great for sketching, but I've also seen some truly beautiful professional works done with it!

It's available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X :D

Check it out, and please share your #MyPaintArt creations!
