Pinned toot

Hello, it looks like I need to go find some more paid work ☺

If you're looking for a contractor who knows Python and Django, then feel free to DM me. Would prefer London work, but could do Nottingham or Cambridge if the work is good.

Recruiters need not apply.

a bit of a rant about that one project

PSA, knives 

Can't believe I've been on this site for nearly two years now and I've only made 478 toots.

I'm writing up a description of something that's kind of like "ephemeral postage stamps" (they disappear/expire, after a while). I'm currently calling it "ghostage stamps".

I can't tell if this is the best name or the worst name.

Experts say you shouldn't take your phone to bed. I'll give you an example of why:

For a while I used one of those sleep metric apps, where you put the phone on the bed and it uses the accelerometer to measure your tossing and turning as a proxy for sleep quality.

According to the data, my best night's sleep by far was when the phone fell off the bed. Slept like a *rock*.

"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Troy Story

As we've seen on the fedi, any neutral stance on 'politics' results in bigots being able to harass and abuse at will. We've seen this with Masto main and mstdnDOTio two of the most high profile platforms run by white guys who have refused repeatedly to take a hard stand.

There is no such thing as having a neutral platform. Either you are against bigots or you're not. There is no middle ground.

Attemping to play the middle *always* favors bigots. ALWAYS.

It is delusional to believe otherwise

It is wholly disingenuous to conflate the push to de-platform groups that mean to perpetuate hate and violence to a generalist push to control the flow of information. That point is complete and utter bullshit.

People such as myself that advocate de-platforming bigot do not give a single solitary fuck about controlling information. I want to *reduce harm*. That's it.

Anyone that gets on a high horse about how that idea is SLIPPERY SLOPE is purposefully trying to derail the point of it.
