== Corporate / Not Corporate ==
This soap dispenser is corporate
- It's installation has been decided by the hierarchy without asking it's users
- It's over-engineered
- It's a money sink
- It's closed (by a key)
- Only few people can do it's maintenance
- It needs batteries so:
- It's not ecological
- Needs constant maintenance
- When the batteries are dead, everyone is screwed
- They had to put an instruction on it because it's use isn't intuitive
- When you use it, the led lights up correctly and it makes noise, but it *doesn't dispenses any drop of soap*. So it's entirely useless… and unused.
- But as it been decided by the hierarchy, and it's expensive, it stays there.

The bottom one isn't corporate:
- It's been put -without hierarchy approuval- to serve users needs
- It's low-tech
- It's ugly but:
- Everyone can use it. No need for instructions on how to use it
- Everyone can maintain it
- Needs minimal maintenance
- It's robust and never breaks
- It does it's fucking required job

You might see parallels with your IT job.

US crisis hotline news: #9-8-8 

In the US, dialing 988 will connect you to a local crisis call center. This replaces the old National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number. Parallel to this, a big boost in funding for crisis hotlines has been introduced.

There is no such thing as a trans debate. It’s not a casual argument you win or not. It’s trying to change existing policy to literally kill and erase people who do a thing you just kinda don’t get (or you get and have decided does not deserve humanity).

I’m so tired.

I think one of the worst wastes of time on the fedi is arguing back and forth over which fedi software is better

someone make a “steal emoji” button in pleroma

Remember that you can check a fedi user's origin by checking their full handle, commonly located next to or underneath their display name. The part after the second "@" is the server domain they are posting from.

You can use this to check if someone is being an imposter! Do not get fooled by sussy bakas on mastodon instances.
