hey folks! please remember to add image descriptions to your images, and, where you can, avoid boosting undescribed images!

not only does this make your timeline less hostile to anyone who relies on screenreaders, or who might have difficulty interpreting your images, it also means that users who can't load images can still see your images.

if you see a post that you like that doesn't have a description, here are some things that you can do:

  • Caption it yourself and repost it, with or without credit, mentioning that it was reposted to be made available. its-always-okay.jpg
  • Ask the original poster to repost it with a caption
  • Add an [ID: Image description] in the replies and boost both. This isn't ideal, since most people will boost the image w/o the image description, but if you're not comfortable with the above, this might be for you

vocalists get MULTIPLE emojis

but not even a single one for the lowly bassist

I'm fighting with my 3D printer again 

So I've been thinking about my joint problems, and how I can best take care of myself to prevent cascading problems. And I remembered there's like, models on Thingiverse and Printables for ring splints for fingers! They keep your finger from bending backwards in a way that will hurt for the rest of the day.

So I was like, oh sick I'll print a set of those

I started up my printer and went to home the axes and a leadscrew fell out of its coupling. So I fixed that, tightened up all the setscrews related to the Z axis. I probed the bed to get a mesh for all my usual printing temperatures, and then I was like, okay everything's ready to print now! I queue up the print, and as it homes the Z-axis again, the BLTouch doesn't trigger, and the entire print head crashes into the bed.

So now I'm out a $40 sensor and my build plate has a big ol pit in the dead center, cause it melted through the coating. My printer's gonna sit idle for a while. :'<

It's fucked up that being homeless or being evicted makes it LESS likely a landlord will rent to you. I know the kind of twisted logic they claim for why they do this, but it's ruinous for anyone trying to get out of poverty.

Thinking about how fucking annoying it is that poor people have to be good at everything we do or we will literally die meanwhile rich people who have 'important' jobs are so fucking incompetent and inept at everything they do. Like this shit isnt cute or funny.
