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.
I have an awful sticker pack of shitposts, featuring a mix of garbage memes and more garbage memes
come to https://meemu.org
we have vaporwave
we got purple
we got 1tb of media storage
but most importantly: we have MEEMUS.
someone was generating facial recognition disrupting face mask designs on redbubble. they were generated using a program this person had written or tweaked and one version was hexagons or pentagons (maybe nested, not only tesselated) but there were more in the works. I cannot. find them, does anyone know the thing I am talking about.

Hey @universalhub, @MassDOT is doing a state wide bike survey. Maybe your followers would be interested in taking it. https://mbta.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aVlOKilg9swZcNw

Okay, so, we seriously thought we could do this completely by ourselves, but we're not actually sure if we can.
Our cat had a UTI and that's taken care of with an antibiotics injection, but our emotionally and financially abusive father was making us choose between the cat and paying back a debt to this company called ProCollect (something we refused to do). We don't get paid next until August 5th and already did our paycheck advance for the week and we've never done that before, so we don't know if it'll even work.
As it turns out, our cat might have a (apologies) fucked up paw from trying to jump up on one of the shelves in our room, something we thought he succeeded at, and which is something we didn't notice until extremely recently (as soon as yesterday night) and we would like to stop restraining him as soon as possible.
Please help us. The Xray and check in alone we hear is probably about $220 USD. We would like to get to $300 - $350 USD to account for car gas money, any meds he might need, and the fact both us and the cat still need food.
Why didn't we say anything until now? Well, what else are you going to do when you think you can do everything by yourself?? We didn't think we would need the help and we're also scared shitless.
We only have a Cash App for now because our PayPal and Venmo don't like our system name, so we have to do something about that, sorry:
If you would like to donate to the Quileute tribe they need help moving some of their buildings including their tribal school that teaches their children their language & culture to higher ground to avoid threat of tsunamis
Person backed out of a big commission they were wanting from me at the very last second, so I'm keeping my comms open to refill the slots. Dm me if interested, rts appreciated.
Oh wow, Germany's healthcare system is adopting Matrix as the base layer for their secure communications system.
The Houston Computer History Museum is liquidating everything they have! If you are in the vicinity of Texas and enjoy old computers, go take a trip there and save a piece of history!
HT to @catgoat for sharing.
re: a plea to mastodon.social users
For those hoping it will get better or to just "wait it out and see":
The situation is unlikely to change or improve (as anyone who has spoken to Gargron can tell you, he is certainly not a man who easily changes his mind...). Constantly reminding mastodon.social to do their jobs is not something that is frankly the community's job.
Either way, the damage has been done. Instances are already blocking it despite its size and a lot of the fediverse is no longer accessible to mastodon.social.
If you want another instance, well, https://joinmastodon.org/communities is a good starting point.
police raid on gay men in MD, USA
Police rounded up a bunch of gay men at a hookup spot in MD, USA: https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2021/07/four-men-arrested-breaking-sodomy-law-maryland-police-raid/
Several men were sent to jail overnight and are facing charges of violating a MD sodomy law, never mind that courts in MD's jurisdictions have already tossed similar sodomy laws in other states after SCOTUS's ruling in Lawrence.
I expect they'll escape being sentenced, or win on appeal. But they've already been punished for their non-crimes: jail, arrest & legal fees, etc.
RETRO COMMUNITY, please retweet. If anybody can be in Houston this weekend there's a 'computer museum' that's liquidating everything they have. Almost everything is pre-Y2K including some DEC stuff and what looks like AS/400 equipment. Listing: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1178156389355802/ @Foone
