#FediTips don’t use your legal name as your username when you sign up because there’s a pretty good chance you will want to change it within a year or two

This is not really a joke

always in awe of this lad

- turn the internet into a hard drive by storing data in pings
- reverse engineering tetris to create an algorithm to store data in the configuration of tetris blocks on 8000 tetris games running in paralel
- attempting to store data on the chips of fancy covid tests?!

There's never going to be good timing for this kind of stuff.

⚠ My close friend needs some emergency help to keep her living situation stable.

She didn't put it in the info yet, but they are looking to take in her partner's teenager, who's currently living in an unsustainable situation with their mom. So this will help them become stable enough to do that.

Their GoFundMe is here:
gofundme.com/f/donate-to-help-

She's disabled like me, with very similar pain issues, and ironically helped me with setting mine up as well, which I think helped her accept that asking for help is okay.

As she says any little helps, but if your struggling yourself, we'd both prefer it if you help yourself first. But maybe pass it on to someone you know can afford to part with some cash. 🙏

💥 "But the real winners are tech billionaires, those rapacious, mediocre monopolists who have denuded the internet into five giant websites filled with screenshots of text from the other four."
