Asking for donations for dog healthcare + medical appointment, please boost 

Hey everyone!

Sorry for this, but if you've read my recent posts, you've seen that my 9yo dog hurt his eye badly.

We got him meds but it's not really effective so we're gonna have to pay for the vet asap.

I also have an appointment with my endocrinologist this month and I have to pay the train + the appointment (30€)

Any help would be amazing if you can pls, even a boost means a lot. Thanks 🙏🏻

Hey, I'm looking for someone to take over one of my jobs, so I can concentrate better on @interpeer.

You should...

- be EU based, NL-based a preference.
- know C/C++/Python
- know basics of network programming: sockets, endianness, datagram vs. stream, etc.
- know Linux networking/routing a bit.

The software runs on small ARM boards (ca. Raspberry Pi 1 power). You'll build and flash images, etc. You'll attach extension boards, and interface the software to firmware.

DM me/boosts appreciated.

Alright folks, I need the power of the Fediverse....

I am looking for something that sounds easy, and obvious to get, but can't find a solution that is reasonably priced.

So what am I looking for?

I am looking for a privacy screen for a Pixel 3. It's made from a polarized glass, so people can't view your screen from the side. This also doubles as a screen protector.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Fediverse, I’m Pete and I’m back on the Writing Exchange! I’m an avid reader and aspiring author, hardcore minimalist, and eclectic husband to my beautiful wife — who clearly has a lot of patience to put up with my quirks. I come alive in fall and winter, hibernate in summer, and function normally all year long with copius amounts of coffee. I also have a deep love of analogue tools and workflows, despite being a tech fanatic. Feel free to follow me here and on my blog.

COVID numbers in NL 

Uit een artikel op NOS: “Afgelopen week zijn er bij de GGD 39.283 positieve tests gemeld. Dat is 15 procent meer dan vorige week.”

Sorry, maar WTF?? Kunnen we heel even stilstaan bij hoe ontzettend veel positieve tests dit zijn?

"recognizing trans people diminishes women" is the same shit as "recognizing LGBT marriages diminishes straight marriages" and hearing it isn't any more convincing this time. Just trying to stoke a fake-ass rivalry between people bigots are terrified of facing as a united front

Know that there are politicians in the West who drool at the thought of being able to do to you what China does to its citizens.

Net een jonge eend uit de klauwen van een jonge buurtkat kunnen redden. Hou die kl*tebeesten toch binnen!

This is important. Very, *very* important.

Like, "human extinction"-level important.

> John Deere’s decision to build ag-tech that can be remotely controlled [and] disabled, along with its [total monopoly], means that anyone who compromises its system puts the world’s food-supply at risk.

> John Deere has extraordinarily terrible information security.

This is great. So, so great.

Rant on the human condition 

Why, when having the option to be kind and generous, do so many humans default to being brutish, petty & cruel?

I’m still pretty convinced it has a lot to do with surviving the trauma of life: survival is hard & it scars people.

Unfortunately, so few of us learn from our experiences. Often we end up inflicting our own deformities on others.

It would be awesome if we had role models of what a truly healthy human being looks like.

Sadly, I don’t think they exist.

Entering my 4th month on Mastodon and I still haven't had a single fight with anyone. I've seen a few people writing "I'm sorry" or "thanks, you made me change my mind on this". I've seen people expressing themselves and not being judged.

I sometimes wonder what would have been my experience had I not deleted my first Mastodon account in 2018.

In een NOS artikel: “Door tekorten te laten ontstaan in de supermarkten willen de boeren het belang van hun werk onderstrepen.”

Volgens mij onderstrepen ze daarmee vooral het belang van de levensmiddelendistributie.

Maar zoals ik er elke keer weer bij zeg als de logica mij ontgaat: ik begrijp zoveel dingen niet.

Mijn schuld is het niet dat de bezorger het verkeerd doet, al begrijp ik wel dat het irritant is. Maar het onrechtmatig bezit nemen van een zaak die aantoonbaar niet voor jou is bedoeld, geldt toch echt als ongerechtvaardigde verrijking. En dat is nog los van je eigen fatsoen.

En dus vallen mijn medeburgers mij voor de zoveelste keer weer behoorlijk tegen.

Nou heb ik het vermoeden dat dit niet de eerste keer is dat dit is gebeurd. Zo heb ik bijvoorbeeld een reeks DVDs besteld die hier nooit zijn aangekomen. Tot twee keer toe (vervanging door het bedrijf waar ik ze kocht). Maar waar ik dus niet bij kan, is dat je op dat verkeerde adres iets in ontvangst neemt dat volgens de naam en adres op het etiket overduidelijk niet voor jou is bedoeld, en dat je dat dan niet even aflevert waar het wel thuis hoort, maar het dus gewoon zelf houdt.
