Time for new a #introduction??
Hi! I'm micah. I'm a 31 year old enby #software engineer in #boston who's sometimes a cat satyr and sometimes a big ol' dog! I'm the admin of meemu.org and scream.today. I like to doodle, watch #starTrek, make horrible mastodon themes, and pet cats. My interests include public transit, #food, and being a big gay.
I use they/them pronouns!
You can find my blog over here @catgoat for longer posts.

Things I liked about 80's/90's computing:
- Total control over my hardware
- Software that worked with me, not against me
- Superior aesthetics (yeah I said it :3 )
- Overall sense of promise and freedom
Things I like about computing today:
- Easy and open access to knowledge
- Insane amounts of storage
- The sheer computing POWERRRR
Now if only we could make these attributes come together instead of being period exclusive.
It looks like people related to Gab and Spinster (fash "feminist instance) have created a website called https://feministwiki.org. This site seems to be really new, first edits are from last week. I dont know what their goal with this is (eg spreading misinformation, or recruiting feminists towards fascism). I dont have the time or knowledge to go through their articles, just want to make sure people are aware of this.
Ring asks police not to tell public how its law enforcement backend works
Cops receive free product, extensive coaching, and pre-approved marketing lines, and Amazon gets access to your 911 data and gets to spread its network of security cameras all over the nation. According to a trio of new reports, though, the benefits to police go even further than was previously known—as long as they don't use the word "surveillance," that is.
money (-), help needed
Hey, I'm a disabled queer that can't do normal work because of said disability. I also have routinely bad mental health that makes what work I can do pretty difficult a good deal of the time. Sometimes what I do is enough to keep me going, sometimes it isn't :/.
Hopefully I'll be fine in a few days, but at the moment I'm running very close to zero and I'm not going to be able to buy food or pay for bills.
Politics (inter-left infighting).
It's disheartening how many Anglophone leftists are outright *proud* of rejecting solidarity with massive portions of the international left. Like, we're the ones in countries that can only maintain their current forms through merciless exploitation of the rest of humanity, and you're going to tell millions of people "Then perish." because your partner's grandmother's father in law's best friend had beef with a since-dismantled political organisation abroad?
@catgoat God I'm such a fighting game mark I saw "Combos" and immediately thought this was going to be about Street Fighter or something.
