re: help request, income and housing situations. :boost_ok:​ 

so, an update, we're getting hit with a lot of pressure to get a job and move out, and we really can't stay at our parents'.

monetary support still welcome (weld.eerie.garden/support), but also, if anyone in the atlanta metro area (or, within a reasonable driving distance of that, or longer if you're willing to help us get the Hell out of this state, we don't have a car ourselves) has space for a disabled queer plural system to stay, that'd be great. we don't have much income, and don't expect to be able to help out much with rent, but. we have some savings if it comes to it.

we're, you know, in the works of trying to find some work and/or get on disability, but there's a strong chance we either don't find anything remote we can do, or if we do, we'll burn out fast or otherwise not hold onto it for long, and that we don't qualify for SSI.

couple of things we make, commission offers, etc 

our music:
red-onyx-music.xyz/the_weld_sy
it's public domain and free to use. if you like it, we'd love if you'd pay what you can (and seriously, only that much) at paypal.me/fidgetcetera

we don't recommend our bandcamp, just use our netlabel's page πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ€πŸ–€πŸ§‘πŸ’–πŸ’™
we have not taken commissions for our music but we... could?

our glitch art:
weld.eerie.garden/art/glitch
we do take commissions, starting at $30 for existing images and $45 for pieces done from scratch!

help request, income and housing situations. :boost_ok:​ 

hiya! so we've had things unpinned and this has been less focal for a bit, mostly because our entire life has been a Thing lately and the stress of internalized ableism and classism was not a good addition at the time.

if you'd like to support us, links to our patreon, paypal, cashapp, and a wishlist are on weld.eerie.garden/support

currently we're stuck living with our abusive parents again, who we previously planned to cut contact with, and we will be stuck with them for... an unknown amount of time.

the house is very inaccessible, being a three story place while we use a cane and wheelchair for chronic leg pain, and we have no bedroom so we're sleeping on an air mattress in the living room. we don't really currently have a great way out of this situation.

the most direct thing is that if we have enough income to actually support ourselves, there's the potential to move out, but otherwise it's all kinda
-big shrug- rn. but even in the short term, maintaining financial independence for things like keeping up our own phone plan, getting meds, buying groceries for ourselves when our parents are dismissive of our needs, and ordering food when we can't cook, are really useful.

please, though, do make sure your own oxygen mask (that is to say, ability to survive) is affixed before helping us out at all. thanks, y'all.

quick question for the local plural cafe folks, related to sex/kink 

given that anyone at all has said to make unlisted posts, that's what we'll primarily do.

thanks for feedback yall ✨

quick warning for folks about element for android 

hey btw, for anyone who might be bothered by this: element for android's latest update added a Feature where the πŸŽ‰ or ❄️ emoji in a message will cover the entire chat window in confetti or snow, as does the /confetti command. if you are particularly bothered by this, you can go to

  1. the three dot menu in the upper right
  2. settings
  3. preferences
  4. "show chat effects" at the very bottom

stream announcement, probably!

weld streams are baaaaaack uwu

money stuff, request for help 

weld.eerie.garden/support has all the ways you can help us out

our roommates are asking for even more in rent than we guaranteeably get as income monthly (and generally, not really recognizing how our disabilities work and expecting more from us than we can give in more ways than one)

we're really stressed about this, still have to buy our own food (frequently ordering delivery because we can't actually cook very often, and only recently has the freezer not been completely stuffed with food so we can get frozen stuff that's much lower effort), pay the internet bill too, and we're moving between states in March. generally a lot of a thing.

generally we're not in an amazing spot? and whether you wanna just put in money generally, or specifically point out a thing on the wishlist you want us to get with that money, we'd appreciate it.

please put on your own oxygen mask first - don't put yourself in a shitty spot because of ours.

this got a bit long re: Linux, question 

@Leagfall so, it depends on what exactly your experience level with computers and technical problem solving is and such, but:

we've used
Solaris (didn't support installing things like discord, spent very little time with it)
Mint (easiest to use initially, but had big bugs and blocking things for us using it on a fresh machine)
Ubuntu (good, but it comes with gnome as the desktop environment which we go back and forth on. it's definitely moving in the direction of being usable on a touchscreen, and is sorta windows ten ish)
Xubuntu (we use it currently and really like it. XFCE is the DE there and is very windows 98/XP in aesthetic and feel)

generally, anything based on Debian (xubuntu, ubuntu and mint qualify here) is really likely to have stuff be easily installable on it?

also - we'll note that xubuntu and ubuntu are nearly identical, the only difference is what's installed by default. so if you try ubuntu and don't like gnome, you can just, like, install xfce without needing to reinstall everything.

hopefully this isn't a big overload of info! if you need extra explanation on anything just let us know!
