I’ve been seeing uninformed things so for today’s #PlasticFreeJuly toot, I’d like to clear up a misconception.
Plastic Free July is a bit of a misnomer. Like Black History Month in February highlights the contributions of Black people but can't be the only time we talk about Black people, and LGBTQ+ Pride month in June doesn’t mean that LGBTQ+ people shouldn’t celebrate in any other months, we're not giving up plastic in July and going back to using it in August.
In July, we're highlighting ways to reduce our plastic consumption year-round and finding other habits we can also change.
About 91% of plastic produced is not recycled. It’s going into landfills or the ocean. We need to reduce our consumption, period.
I’ve also seen the complaint that corporations are the problem, not individuals.
Corporations only produce what people will buy. Show Dow, BASF, ExxonMobil, and Matsui that there’s less demand for what they’re making, and they’ll make less of it.
Just finished converting my IRC bouncer setup from using ZNC to pounce  & related  tools . Decided to stop using ZNC in the first place after finally getting fed up with multi client experience it offers, pounce offers much, much better solution OOTB, with each connected client having separate place in the back log. Setup was not as straightforward as with ZNC, but its simplicity and flexibility it offers (I quite like logger being a separate service) will make it worth the effort (effort meaning having to build pounce from source manually on my Ubuntu VPS, AUR spoiled me). Now I'm not sure how stable it will work in the long run but since it's such a simple setup there's not that much that can break so yeah.
Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.
Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.
Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.
There have to be like ... three or four orders of magnitude more #C developers than rust developers out there.
I mean, I understand what they're saying, and I don't entirely disagree, but it sure does seem early for that claim.
@Pixley idk, but he followed me and I dont recall ever interacting with him before now so
Okay. Respect. 👏
“I am far more outraged by the U.S. Congress, which continues to deny the mostly Black and brown people of the District of Columbia statehood, and the representation every American deserves, than by anything Amy Cooper did. That gross racial injustice could be fixed by Congress now, today, and that is what people should be focused on, not last year’s events in Central Park.” -Christian Cooper, falsely accused by Amy Cooper
Not real sure how I feel about this. 🤔
The case against Amy Cooper — a white woman who falsely told the police that Christian Cooper, a Black bird-watcher, had threatened her in Central Park — was dropped after she finished racial bias classes. https://nyti.ms/3s4cYhL

He voted for Trump the first time because he's an idiot.
He voted for Trump the second time because he believes the coronavirus is a hoax. And also because he's an idiot.
Name a Disney character that DEFINITELY voted for Trump.
Matrix still hasn't addressed the annoyances their bridge creates in IRC channels 2 years after I raised the issue with them
So I set up a channel on Freenode to dump Matrix users into:
