Finally got that tracking number from Analogue for the Pocket. Now I'm immediately going to see how does one make games using GB Studio for the lulz.

It came today! And it immediately got chipped on the screen and dented a bit. I guess that's one way to mark it as "used". I've been playing a few games I found on (here's the collection: https://itch.io/c/2758364/game-boy-games. Down to quickly play (< 10 minutes) some suggestions people have. Only thing I'd want is some form of wireless adding of games or content to the Pocket; that'd be cool - but swapping the SD card in and out isn't the hardest thing in the world, especially since my Framework laptop has a SD card expansion card in it.

To retro (and modern) gaming on this device! It's more fun than I anticipated (and I already can feel my hands beginning to slightly cramp up, heh).

I needed to find a copy of my Twitter profile that had the date I created it (I definitely do not have the archive for it) for this thing coming up. But it confirmed what I was thinking. I joined Twitter about two years into high school (June '09). Left it for good last month. That's thirteen freaking years.

This would be a welcome addition for me as I use https://github.com/tinted-theming/base16-tmux and using its ideas of colors would be a great improvement.

Like you have to be rich (or just have a lot of disposable income, which is a signifier of wealth) to get ONE person here. And now with the most recent "petition to get people out of countries that we're actively exploited program" (namely Haiti, Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela and the media's favorite: Ukraine), you need to have at least $20,000 on hand. I'm probably fucked.

Understanding now that how most of the immigration flow is "prove to us that you can work here" and "how much money are you trying to bring in here" not "what would you need to make sure you're okay?" "What kind of support would you require" when it's been SOLELY women and children I've been working on filing out these forms for (which, have gotten 'easier' over the years, for what it's worth) proves again (to me) that this is more about bolstering America's ability to exploit poor immigrants. I can't speak for wealthier ones because I don't personally know any and their process.

Truthfully feels like the F/LOSS wing of Microsoft at this point without their branding. Because the "metaverse" is too much of a joke.

Filling out immigration sponsorship information gets me constantly stressed and enraged at this country and does not help my state of being at all. Asking for permission to enter the country responsible for the destabilization of the lands you're from feels like asking an abuser for permission to go outside after they've isolated you from your community. I hate it. I hate it so much.

Okay. Now I wonder if there's something else we can do here. Have experts in the font space propose and work on a open typeface for this instead of leaning on Microsoft to make these changes. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2023/01/18/state-department-times-new-roman-calibri/. I vaguely remember other governments in the EU not even using Microsoft's soup of tools so they're probably ahead of the game with accessibility on this front.

Got this link from a comrade: https://theintercept.com/2022/06/07/union-busting-tactics-diversity/ and whew, ain't it the truth. After doing DEI shit at Lyft (if you were in the Bay in 2017-2018, you MOST likely seen me on the scene with the rest of the UpLyft crew), nothing is possible without an ACTUAL voice and I learned that the hard way. The best one can do without blessings from the rulers on high was throw events, and even that. DEI movements are effectively useless if workers do NOT have a true voice, and that's not possible without things like a union at your workplace.

Okay, screw it. Going to merge my dotfiles into a singular repository. Splitting it up is okay, but a bit annoying to manage. If I am, I'll consider using a different tool as well.

Out of a want to work more in the open, I'm still eager to livestream. I have a slightly high bar of what I want, mainly because I want to provide a really nice experience (and because since I'm kinda hand rolling this, why not have some fun with it). One thing I need is a programmatic way to determine what workspace I'm on. Eh, I might just work on that live too.

Turned on auto-deletion of posts from my todon.eu Mastodon account. An ephemerally-organized life is a beautiful thing, something we kind of have built into our brains, but technology can make that harder to lean on (some things we need to forget). Waxing poetic aside, this is also me telling myself to use my journal more.

The more I'm reading from Haitian authors (not people who travel to Haiti from the US and observe but locals who have lived, learned and experienced life in Haiti), the more I'm realizing I really cannot take a lot of American authors who chronicled Haiti as some war-torn country and more of the effects of American imperialism, the hatred of Blackness from the US and how the US will do anything to prevent people from being free. Like weakening government to allow famine and disease to spread. Or destroying local political movements and describing them as "rebels" when they're fighting to give people food, water and power. Clinton backed this (both of them, which is why I couldn't support her in the primaries) and the US still uses these policies across other countries like Puerto Rico, Guyana, Jamaica and the like. To be anti-American, at this point, is to be anti-imperialism. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Does anyone know of a ... geowiki? software?Something that lets you have pages organized by like streets and parks and maybe other openstreetmaps objects ,but have a forum or page there to discuss?

The closest thing I can think of would be https://localwiki.org/.
