I would like to take a moment to promote Trunk 🐘

They are like FediFollows but much older, bigger and better 👍

They have a huge opt-in list of people on the Fediverse that you can follow arranged into lots of categories:

The list has been a bit out of date recently, but they now have a new admin who is cleaning things up.

If you have any questions or want to join the list, you can contact the new admin at @Mayana

trans, UK, GIC protest mural, discussion regarding suicide 

"A few friends and I painted a mural in Bristol to highlight the state of trans healthcare"

We need more of these.

A free font, HyperLegible from the Braille institue. for those with poor vision and to be unambiguous

Since yesterday amidst other things I've been reading a totally totally adorable fic I got sent.

It has kink, and the beginnings of someone's gender exploration. It's part 2 but I've not really cared that I didn't read part 1. The Untamed but a modern day AU.

Still about half way through but its been super dupes cute so far, and its actually complete and I hear it has a happy ending which I'm looking forward too.

"follow the light northwest" by typefortydeductions (

"Why are there always three witches?" the king asked.
"One to brew the tea," the first witch said.
"One to bake the cakes," the second witch said.
"And one," said the third witch, "to keep all the other witches safely unseen."

I have cake for but also I have a bowl of cake scrapings from my girlfriends cooking of cakes.

it is a good day to trans.

There's a fucking railway station in Japan that has no entrances. You can visit it only by exiting train and it usage is admiring nature.

uspol, facebook 

Facebook fired the whistleblower who leaked information about Facebook siding with conservative accounts and groups preferentially.

"[...] If your software requires the user to perform 20 steps to get it running, you’ll be losing potential users even before they have a chance to figure out if it works on their system or not"

this one part is extremely important

An updated list of furry instances 

A lot of furry folks are looking for new instances, and here are just a few furry friendly ones:****

*The user(s) in charge have specifically requested either reaching out or having a friend vouch in order to join, and may not always be accepting new members

Finished my current silly/fun project: - a broken link scanner for org-roam (


- Can scan whole DB!

- Clicky links to fix stuff easily!

- Reasonably fast! Tested on a dataset of ~500 nodes

- Kinda extensible! Works for file: and roam: links out of the box and you can bolt on extra types by writing a small function

- Knows how to look for files that are just headers and whitespace and counts them as empty!

Chinese APT spotted using a UEFI bootkit in the wild

-bootkit was used to install MosaicRegressor, an espionage toolkit
-targets included diplomatic entities and NGOs in Africa, Asia, and Europe
-bootkit most likely installed with physical access

It is 2020 and you can get an Internet-linked chastity cage to let someone lock your peen up remotely.

But you can also have a bunch of security holes in the app that does this and the server it connects to, and someone can steal your data and threaten to expose you to all your contacts.


meta, fic, pregnancy 

having a conversation about "eggpreg" while working from home today.

My objection is that this is not how eggs work at all. This is *incubation* not *pregnancy* and hence it should be tagged something else. Because its not preg dammit!

Does anybody in the #bayarea know of a doctor who's a #chronicpain specialist and is taking patients right now?

Please boost.

Honestly if you want to play around with a local graphing note taker which stores stuff neatly in plain text then you may just want to look into trying Obsidian (

Honestly that looks like it does 90% of whats wanted and appears pretty user friendly (way more than fucking around with elisp), it's got cross-platform support (Windows, Mac, Linux). Only thing missing is a mobile app.
