angry about FOSS toxicity, YT link, some capslock
Someone submitted a "Merch Message" in the latest WAN Show attempting to call Linus out for hating on the Linux UX without having contributed code.
To put it bluntly, this person is the biggest problem we have with Linux, personified.
Linus's response is perfect and we don't understand how this isn't just assumed.
"As a User, you are allowed to talk about the User Experience. That is all the credentials that you need."
Then he proceeds to explain that the Devs are too close to their project to understand the needs of a more general user. AKA, the EXACT FUCKING ISSUE with the Linux community, and FOSS advocacy in general, that we've been screaming from the rooftops for months now.
Like seriously, how the FUCK is this so hard to understand?

We mostly chatted about sense of self stuff. I do think a lot of my problem there has been social isolation (due to pandemic + demands of raising young kids), since my therapist pointed out that a lot of sense of self comes from others telling us how they see us, and I simply haven’t had that since even before transition. Transition plus realizing I’m autistic and working to dismantle my mask have combined into a pretty major shakeup of my identity, and I haven’t had the tools I need to figure out who I am at this point. That plus my really bad memory issues means it’s hard for me to even think of stuff I like (!) without prompting.
im officially un-hiatusing my social media, however expect a lot more followers only posts- i'm too many demographics that people like to harass, and i don't think i want to have as public an image as i have in the past
with that said, feel free to send a follow request- i'll either accept it or i won't ;)
We didn’t even get a chance to dig into plurality, though when asked she did say she thinks plurality is real. I hope we can work on that next session. I really need to be able to talk about this with someone face-to-face. I’ve been too afraid to bring it up with my wife, though I really need to do that at some point.
especially with my new cushion, i feel like it will be *more* comfortable than an overpriced office chair that tries to kick me out of it at random intervals. despite the pain i am in, im feeling hopeful :)
my partner just said "only use your wheelchair, and keep your weight off of it" and i've been happy to oblige, but its making me painfully aware of how my wheelchair needs to be adjusted. im hoping when i adjust the seat to floor height, the new angle my feet make with the footplate will be fine. because the footplate won't adjust for me, no matter how hard i try :V
in lighter news, my current office chair (its my partners, but due to Reasons im using it) has been a bit of a hazard and i just got the idea to just use my wheelchair instead, and it actually removes the need for the lower desk thing i've been using.
because im higher up, the height of my keyboard is perfectly fine (my legs brush up against the bottom of the desk, but again i want to adjust my seat down so thats a temp issue) and its pretty nice. though now i think my monitor is an inch or two too low.
its a permanent cycle once i get everything dialed in it'll be great, but until then, lots of minor annoyances.
syscourse, trauma mention
📻 I feel like a lot of disordered systems direct a lot of their anger stemming from unprocessed trauma at non-disordered systems, and I also feel like a lot of non-disordered systems forget that disordered systems often get distressed due to their trauma-based multiplicity and that may negatively influence their opinions on other types of systems.
Basically, I think we should just, like... talk to one another, and try to understand each other's experiences?
my OT is so good!!
they respect how much i know about my body and brain
they have noted a chair as an "indicated need" which basically means in their opinion it will make my life better and help me be more functional
and they Get It!! they understand what it's like! I think they have adhd too but I'm not gonna pry
👾 Alice Discordia here, so anyway plural dot cafe we did some chaos witchcraft (drugs) and unlocked repressed memories and it turns out I am actually the original person here and around first puberty retreated so far I became a subroutine for twenty years and forgot I could be a person. Long story short, I'm the host now, big thanks to my systers for keeping us alive through all this shit. This feels right, feels very clear and calm. Time will tell if that's just afterglow.
