Lustiger Kram heute mal wieder: Die "Smart" Home Lampe die ich gekauft hab um mal zu schauen was da so drin ist lässt sich in einen Modus setzen der wohl für Setup-Dinge genutzt werden kann (die App fordert dazu auf diesen Modus zu aktivieren, wenn man die Frage, ob man die "Intelligente Kopplung" verwenden möchte verneint). In diesem Modus spannt die Lampe ihr eigenes WLAN auf und einen HTTP-Server da drin, ABER verwendet plötzlich ein anderes MAC Prefix, was gar nicht registriert ist??

Liebe TL, habt ihr eventuell Infomaterial/Argumentationshilfen für nicht binär-geschlechtlich getrennte Toiletten in Unternehmen?

Reference to Transphobia, Screenshot from Twitter 

Okay apparently some "gender critical" people (read: transphobes) are trying to claim Terry Pratchett would have supported them, and this tweet is an argument against them, a personal anecdote, but most importantly such an emotional and beautiful story, it just made me tear up a little

OH: Bored to Burnout Any% Speedrun


Why on earth is the CW "meta" now ambiguous? At least I don't think they'll get away with any trademark protection on the term, and if they do, someone will probably burn the USPTO to the ground

Definitely not me sneaking my draft for an enby character past the co-authors


yeah I might be a bit mad at people who constantly list multiple pronouns rather then use inclusive ones when trying to refer to a person of unspecified gender

Okay the verification works now even though I didn't change anything, I guess it was cached or something

Heyy, I'm back in the Fediverse I guess^^

And did I screw up embedding the link or why is the verification of the link on my profile not working?
