My body is for my use and my aesthetic pleasure. It is for me. It is the only true thing I own and have control over. I will make it look how I like. Fuck you. Thanks

Would you walk up to an old lady and tell her that her hat choice is awful, or that she should go to the gym? You would not. That is what it is like to offer your opinion on someone's body unsolicited. It is out and out rude. Do not do it.

I don't care if you think my tattoos are ruining my body, what I care about is how absolutely rude it is to walk up to someone and assume your opinion of my body is important at all to me. You are taking up my time

Hey ex-Tumblr/witchy side of the Fediverse, does anyone recognise this style of sigil? A Tumblr user made a bunch of these really digital-looking square style sigils, including this "Finish what you start" one. It's lived on my wall for years and I'd love to find the artist and ask permission to get it tattooed.

@ScreenTestOfTime (i've only added the first couple episodes, but i'm going to try to add more every day until I have the full list)

Sometimes I get curious about what @ScreenTestOfTime thought of a movie but don't have time to go back and re-listen to the episode, so I started a wiki to collect some basic stuff about each episode:

I ask this question once a year: Does anyone have recommendations for research journaling apps? I am still waiting for a basic diary application with latex and markdown support.

@noelle open `redis-cli` and run `sadd unavailable_inboxes instance.domain/inbox`

Particularly Tootplaneteers.

The Kid has been wanting to join a site like Wattpad or figment for a while. Can anyone give me an idea of what it's like, how safe, toxic it is etc?

She's in her early teens.

I don't want my overprotective instincts to hamper her interest, but at the same time I've read some horror stories. Especially re Wattpad.

So I've been informed by two different people that users on have been getting unsolicited contact from the admin and users of another instance about switching over to their instance while putting down It seems to be some kind of weird "recruitment drive" for an invite-only instance. They look to be targetting people who are more tech savvy.

I won't name which instance it is, as I think they might just be targetting right now, but I feel like this is something other instance admins should be aware of.

Yesterday we did something cool and low-effort at #hackerspace, called "Tauschrausch" – everybody brings the project parts (Arduinos, chips, speakers, motors, …) they always wanted to use but never did, and offer them to others. Shop around for cool stuff and get rid of your old parts. Make some waffles/popcorn/drinks, and you have a really enjoyable evening.
