Hopefully the last begpost in a while, but bills & debt are piling up and I'm just not coping. I also need to buy food etc.

£500 would cover me until my payrise kicks in, or £300 would cover the next month. I hate having to do this but I have no other choice.

Please boost etc if you can 💖

Questions for scholars who study hate speech or hate communities:

How do you interact with and sample/archive this material safely from a tech perspective?

Also, how do you deal with the emotional distress from lurking these communities, reading their speech, interacting with them, &c?

Boosts appreciated.

Essential “jobs” or “skills”? 

If you were making a “household” (for lack of a better English word. The word maybe is “Whānau”) and the group had to meet 100% of your basic survival needs? What “skills” would you need to learn/have/etc? For example, someone who knows how to grow food, a nurse, a plumber, a chemist (aka pharmacist), surgeon, cook, cleaner(s)… this is a list of skills not people (eg everyone _could_ cook not just one person) but there will only be 50 ppl max. Who would you invite?

Advice request - support for imprisoned people 

We are looking for any generic or specific to so-called “Australia” resources and advice about joining or participating in existing solidarity, support, connection with locally imprisoned people. I think I saw a bunch of people mentioning something about this. Any chance anyone has resources or advice? Thanks in advance.

"We need your help to secure funding for housing for a trans girl who lives in Nigeria, and has been struggling with systemic transphobia in the country and issues of personal safety in her life. She needs assistance affording housing, as costs are rising everywhere. She is asking for $2500 to secure housing for herself. Any amount helps, even $1 or $5."

ongoing genocide in palestine 

This speaks millions of words:

«A total of 44 Palestinians, among them 15 children, as well as members of Islamic Jihad, have now been killed in the bombing campaign and more than 300 people have been injured, while 13 Israelis have been treated in hospital for minor injuries as hundreds of retaliatory rockets were fired across the Gaza frontier towards the south of the country.»

Tech/racist grump 

I would like all y’all tech creators to go way out of your way to correct the number of times I’m required to read the word “master” on a daily basis. Yes, do tech work “for free”, especially, especially, if you don’t understand immediately and didn’t already do this yourself because it bothers you as well or thought of money first. Also terms like whitelisting and blacklisting need to fuck off. And I’m not willing to do the work of that. Please do this for us

Dog pic looks lewd maybe but is not 

Our dogs are big and were originally intended to work on a farm. Fuck that shit, we’ve got them living with us now. Circumstances beyond my control forced us back into city life. The dogs need to go to the dog park daily to get energy out. It is too far for us to walk so we have to drive. It’s the only place we ever go… and these two can’t work out who gets front seat and who gets windy slobber from the back seat.

Hey all. If you got any spare cash consider sending some towards @CaribenxMarciaX.

They need help with covering a lot of the basics, but also more urgently their domains etc.

If it matters to you, Marcia is definitely the kind of person who pays it forward as soon as they are able to, and we're currently trying to not pass the same $20 around

Create anti-capitalist, anti-colonialist, queer, and anti-racist movies, film, and art and then spread via non-institutional avenues.

gotosocial tech question 

Hey, what web client are people using with gotosocial?

creator boosted

how do you take "margin" notes or annotate when you read audiobooks or digital texts with TTS?

:boost_ok: pls

Ok… as I mentioned I’ve been spending my time learning more techie stuff so this doesn’t feel as difficult as it used to. I’m going to check out gotosocial I think, and I have a site name in mind…. I hope it will only take me a couple hours to get running… but may take a few days for me to set up the emails and ports and all that crap… and a dm would be a good idea in the meantime. Happy to participate… dm me if you want to be in the dm while I set up the other one :)

Would it be helpful to have a site that’s not federated at all? I’m asking because I was thinking of making such a site but not sure if I would be setting up a whole thing just for me :P my assumption is the site is black and queer only then not federated anywhere. But again idk.

EMERGENCY: I’m overdrawn by $65, rent is due in four days, my landlord is getting on my case to pay off my back rent of $2384.10 (being underemployed in the off season put me in a hole, and not having a second job this summer has made escaping that hole impossible). I’m also on my last pair of contacts and cannot find my glasses, so I need to get new contacts ASAP before it becomes an issue. I'd appreciate any help
