After years of therapy, I've trained my brain to be less like this but it still acts up sometimes.

Hmm Taiwan decided to drop Zero-COVID in May, let's check in on them to see how that's working out?

Oh...shit😬

(If we'd done the same on the Mainland there would have been a *minimum* of 500,000 dead since May based on those numbers)

But the economy!

Oh...

i've known more people to get covid this year than during the entire span of time since the pandemic began and yet the CDC and society in general are just giving up and declaring it over

the CDC: we've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas guess you'll die

Friends: how do you keep "organized" re all of your tasks, projects, ideas, etc? Curious about folx' systems.

Curious because, despite iterating on my own system for multiple years, I'm still getting overwhelmed by everything there is to do. 🤯

Linux, Accessibility, may include occasional sarcasm 

So, let's give Linux another try. I usually didn't have any issues with Ubuntu Mate. In fact, it was the distro where accessibility worked best right out of the box. I'm happy to announce that they've seen the way, and now it just doesn't. Took me forever to actually get the screen reader to talk. The standard keystroke of Super+S (or super+alt+s) didn't work. I knew ctrl alt T opened a terminal, hoped it still did, and tried to launch Orca from there. Welp, it kinda did. It says frame over and over, I very rarely get told what the focus is actually on, and yeah... let's try something else, since the installer window just straight up does not read at all. I really don't know what's up here, this is a big regression. This used to work just fine. Which makes me question if this is me doing something wrong or if it's actually broken.

ADHD is forgetting unfinished projects exist until the next time you see them, and forgetting bills and paperwork exist until the next time you see them, and forgetting friends exist until the next time you see them.

If you're screening your follow requests, it's probably not a good idea to reject or block someone just because their profile picture is empty.

There are many blind people on the Fediverse who don't use profile pictures. For example, the writer Robert Kingett at @blindscribe doesn't use one.

The most reliable way to screen accounts on here is just to read what they have posted, as this better reflects what kind of account they are.
