update re: request for income help and such, boosts welcome, etc 

just wanna drop an update post

help is still always appreciated. we're trying to fill our free time with longer streams to keep ourselves supported, so if you ever wanna drop in and see those, twitch.tv/fidgetcetera . additionally, if anyone has opportunities for paid front-end web design, or accessibility auditing, our schedule is completely open for freelance opportunities. we can't really accept full-time positions, but please DM us if you have something relevant.

as well as that, we have glitch art commissioning info at weld.eerie.garden/art/commissi

if you wanna just support us, weld.eerie.garden/support is where you go, and we're deeply appreciative. until we have a Comradery account, Patreon is one of our preferences, simply for the consistency.

thanks to everyone, put on yr own oxygen mask first, etc

(don't boost) some Weld boundaries, on boosting, ableism, and content warning requests 

1. we post by-default privately. if the boost button is available to you, and we didn't say "don't boost" (like in this post), you can boost it.

2. we appreciate content warning requests. to put it up front, we will not cw our use of our own reclaimed slurs (like, saying we're cute cripple queers), or our chronic pain or other fundamental things to us like it. that said, you're welcome to tell us if something we post/boost could use a CW, or if our CW could be more specific. we try to take these in based on what our mutuals boost and such onto our feed.

3. please don't say ableist shit on our feed! if you're criticizing ableism, we'd prefer you cw it. if it's internalized stuff, we understand. especially things like
"lame" and "cripple"
references to intelligence or brain size
"insane"/"crazy"/etc
"psychopath"/"sociopath"
this list is not comprehensive, but you can check:

music player recommendation request, boosts welcome 

so vanilla music seems to be unmaintained, and this means features we want no longer work due to the android permissions api changing.

soooo, until Vanilla gets upated again

can we be recommended a music player which isn't vanilla music but has the ability to import and export (and sync up automatically, ideally) m3u files from an arbitrary location on device?

(we use syncthing to keep this in line with mpd on our desktop and laptop)

open source is nice, but fuck it idc.

please only rec apps you have a baseline familiarity with, we aren't interested in hearing "oh well i duckducked and this was the first result" responses

at 19:00 cdt we'll be hanging out, repairing a gunpla, and chatting, after like, not being on twitch all year

update re: request for income help and such, boosts welcome, etc 

we moved successfully into our tiny studio apartment!

the day before that, we were officially told that Queerit, who we got contracts for web design through, was closing! we just got our last payout from them.

we're not fucked, we have savings, but we sure are disabled and lack of income outside the small amount on patreon is defs a stressor and like, yeah, any help would be super welcome!

wishlist, every payment link, etc:

psa re: the big twitch data leak 

sourcing from:
twitter.com/tomwarren/status/1

theverge.com/2021/10/6/2271225

we wanna say that it's a great idea always to change passwords (this includes stream keys, which are a kind of plaintext stored password) and activate 2factor auth (ideally with an OTP app like AndOTP for example), and there is no reason to believe the ppl who leaked the twitch data and commit history haven't also got ahold of a bunch of passwords and personal info, and this leak IS Part 1

but

currently, it appears that streamer revenue payouts are the only personal data from anyone's account being publicized at this moment. this makes sense also with how it'd appear this person is aiming at disrupting twitch&amazon more than anything

again, don't not cycle your passwords and stuff. caution is always warranted, but, like, probably no need to panickedly go "oh god my passwords!" in allcaps just yet

question abt an old ipad and android tablet :boost_ok: 

yk, gonna repost about this and make it boostable this time

hi, we have an old and low power android tablet, plus a gen 1 ipad sitting around. they're completely unused for us and we'd be interested in what things we can possibly do that're interesting with them and maybe help us learn shit

hardware modification (taking apart the case and all that) is less realistic an option, but like, idk, other software related stuff would be neat. running linux on a thing or something? shrug.

if nothing else we'll probably make them into digital picture frames in the end or something so -shrug- it's hardly pressing

request for income help and such, boosts welcome, etc 

hi all!

so, we're finally fucking moving by the end of this month (aaaaaaa)

we get some income from doing freelance contract projects for software dev and accessibility work, and we have some savings, but, like. extra income is always welcomed, especially when steadier through things like patreon, because we're disabled and the inability to work consistently is always looming over us, plus just, moving costs, medical costs, groceries, all of the things.

so like, short version, we'll be scraping by okay but like if you want to help out or spread this around, we'd appreciate it

weld.eerie.garden/support.html has all the ways you can support us, like patreon and paypal, with a wishlist. enter offer code 69!

we do digital glitch art, with commission info at weld.eerie.garden/art/commissi

we release music rarely and you can download it for free at red-onyx-music.xyz/the_weld_sy and consider tipping above if you like

tech, quick small(?) work opportunity w/ wordpress and woocommerce and stuff 

do we know anyone who wants a paid wordpress/elementor builder/woocommerce/klaviyo job, needing done ASAP? there's Issues with the klaviyo api, and they're at a loss with the issue. you can reply/dm with a contact email and we'll pass it along to them for more details
