I have suddenly knee problems that I didn't have before in my right knee. it feels a bit scary. there's a sharp stinging pain when I bend the knee too much and when I straighten my leg too much.
in between it's kind of okay.
*sigh* I hope it goes away by itself. My joints are a mess so usually I give stuff a few days to settle before I consider consulting a doc. most of the time it goes away again. lalala hex hex
food, app stuff
a friend recommended this app called "too good to go", that is meant to sell food for less money that would otherwise be thrown away.
and what I find weird is that the stores and restaurants put up offers for tomorrow. so - they know today that and how much will be leftover tomorrow.
maybe it's an estimation based on what's always leftover... but what if I buy tomorrows leftover food and I arrive tomorrow and nothing is leftover?
fedi meta, peertube, nazis
libre.video: in its CoC no mention of moderating hate speech. it's a neoliberal server from what I can tell
open.video: hosts nazi videos, despite their CoC saying "We don't tolerate: porn and nazi/terrorism propaganda." which is also their ONLY rule besides copyright issues.
https://peertube.iriseden.eu/ - seems to contain no shit, has CoC against hate speech but everything in frech and I'm bad at french
fedi meta, peertube, nazis
I'm looking at the some peertube instances and the first stuff that springs into my face is conspiracy and nazi shit...
is this really the standard experience of someone who first checks out peertube? to find yucky nazi and conspiracy stuff?
on mastodon we block nazi + "free speech" instances, but is there anything similar happening on peertube, and what are PT instances that do not suck?
food, veganism + low waste
I think I'll never be fully vegan, (I'm not even fully vegetarian) but I'd like to be predominantly vegan, with everything else = exception.
which is harder with my #lowWaste efforts because those tasty plant milks are all in those plastic layered drink cartons.
there used to be soy milk in glass bottles which were returned and refilled, back in die 90ies..
question for people that travel often
this year my boy has been traveling pretty often for work (once a month or more).
he left monday and caught a cold immediately. that has gotten better but he was throwing up all last night and now he has to catch another plane to texas for another week of work
he gets sick every time, especially when he’s stuck at a conference or something eating bad hotel food
would love to hear any advice or snack ideas y’all might have for traveling with a sensitive tum
the mindset with Facebook is like: OMG, people are on our site a lot, but they're still searching with other sites. how do we make our site a search engine? how do we make sure people never leave our site?
that's not the sort of attitude that community-based services have. we can't be everything to everyone, and we don't want to be.
i don't think tech writers really get the idea that services exist to fill needs, niches, that people have needs and that these needs may vary between different people, that sometimes it's better if people who want X use the site for X, and people who want Y go to some other site
it's all a competition to them, and that's a big part of what we're trying to get away from, and what millennials and Gen Z in general are tired of
Of all Internet users in India, only about a 4th are women. In many cases male members monitor/ regulate usage. For women with access, specially in less urban areas, the Internet is a panacea from orthodoxy.
Shutting down the Internet is like a double head shot to marginlized groups in society like women in India. Other groups on the lines of caste and class are stifled. Internet access is a basic human right, but govts across the world don't seem to agree.
they closed the bridge over the river that is my main cycle route to work for repairs. now they re-paved the road and they painted on new cycling "infrastructure".
it consists of a bike lane that is placed between the lane that is for cars going straight ahead and the lane for cars turning right. I'm not looking forward to that...
and that in the year berlin was voted "cycling capital of germany" which had always been münster, before.
someone posted https://alt.pavethe.earth/ and I can't 😂
It's Friday please show me what comfy sweaters you are wearing! Or comfy t-shirts I guess if you're in the southern hemisphere. People exactly on the equator, uh, button downs?
I felted over the moth holes on this one and now I'm kind of sad they weren't in a more prominent location. #VisibleMending
