An indigenous activist friend wrote this great piece on what white/non-bla(c)k Australians should be doing & thinking about in this time of focus on America, with links to the voices & causes to follow, support & donate to. Racism in Australia is not less bad than America, it’s just different.
businesses side with cops because cops protect capital. us cops were started to detain runaway slaves. it was never about serving the community and always about keeping the rich people rich and the oppressed down
blue lives literally don't exist. you are not born a cop, you choose to become a cop, and can quit being a cop. it is an intentional bastardization of the actual legit black lives matter movement that they are able to reinforce by using their state influence to get their propaganda on licence plates and merchandise
I gotta be honest the worst looting I've ever seen take place happened a few weeks ago when corporations collected over 500 billion dollars in stimulus money while everyone else was left with a $1200 dollar check and having to decide if they pay for food or rent..
after a few years of use, my 2tb seagate sshd that i've been using as a game drive has pretty much had it and now kinda doesn't really wanna work, so i'm looking for a replacement of some sort
should i opt for a more spacious and cheaper (but slower and probably seagate barracuda) hard drive or a faster (but somewhat more expensive and less spacious crucial/samsung) ssd?
@haskal i'm actually somewhat curious as to why the pbp is preloaded with the KDE edition of manjaro
XFCE probably runs a whole lot better
@haskal devices with google play services will instead make use of evil-to-evil encryption
asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed
does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.
protesting advice + Cell phones!
PLEASE PLEASE!! Turn! OFF!! YOUR!!! CELLPHONES!!!! if you cant ensure data and 4g is 100% OFF, turn off the device! we know that cops have the ability to track you via cell data. there's a device called a Stingray that can force your cellphone to connect to it instead of a cell tower, and give anyone connected to it access to all of your information. Don't make it easy for cops to find you!
also, ps move navigation controller so when steamvr does work i can play alyx
mine is very slowly coming
oculus go so far:
- instantly quit bigscreen when someone else appeared in my room because i was too much of a wuss to talk to them
- sideloaded quake and got dizzy
- sideloaded trackercontrol so i won't have to worry about facebook's tracking as much
- sat through blurry gearvr video demos
- realised that the tomb raider movie tie in advergame was the best game on the store (despite the fact it literally goes for 5 minutes)
gonna have to somehow work out streaming steamvr stuff to it now
