For anyone curious about the journey of finding a tenant amidst a housing crisis:
I kinda want to shout over the fence to shut up but maybe I'd be disturbing a memorial for her pet rabbit or something. There's literally no other excuse for anyone to butcher IN THE AAAAAAAAAAAAARMS OOOOOOOOOF AN ANGEEEEEEEL for so long.
Quarantine can end now plz.
Wow, the outdoor #bouldering thingy has 10b+ routes now!
One of my users 'needs' a 28 inch screen to 'view design in detail.' Something about it rubs me the wrong way. We work at a non-profit. Our servers are refurbished potatoes, our laptops came straight from a dumpster. I go to absurd lengths to limit our expenses as much as possible.
It could be that I'm way too frugal, but I just get incredibly annoyed when I hear luxury items like massive screens are 'needed.'
Do you know those video games where you walk around with a little lantern and slowly parts of the map start to light up until you get a sense of where you are? That's what it feels like being a selftaught #sysadmin. Except the map is never ending and sometimes randomly leads you into a ravine.

Happy Monday #fediverse, how are you all doing?
Here's a brilliant comment about the affordability of a universal basic income. #ubi
I briefly studied the Dutch welfare system while in uni (from a Foucauldian perspective, it was 🔥🔥), and saw up close how people were being stomped on and degraded just to receive some funds to survive. It's a horribly inhumane system. Hopefully the #covid19 pandemic provides us with an opportunity to look at alternatives.
Personal opinions from a sysadmin at a fully FOSS feminist non-profit. Permanently going through some stuff.
