Right, about time I do another post. I'm Paul, admin of Kith.Kitchen, I'm a web developer with an interest in and . I have a (rented) garden in , two cats, a lovely girlfriend, social , dyspraxia, and lots of musical instruments that I keep meaning to play. I used to do as a hobby and hope to do so again. I'm currently of the anarchist-communist persuasion. All I want is to do my best to help other people thrive.

I'd like to hold a video meetup for Kith kitchen folks on the first weekend of March (6th to 7th), just a no-pressure friendly hangout for our users to get to know each other better. If you're interested, like this post and I'll send you a doodle poll link so we can find a time that works.

I've decided to try and get back into music, I'm going to practice a song and go to an open mic night on Monday

Action: support tennants risking eviction (UK) 

151 Sidney Grove in Newcastle is a group of tenants trying to stop their landlord from evicting them. Amongst the actions they have planned, they are asking people who can, to take part in the 'mass email' tomorrow morning.

They have made it easy by creating a template that you can send. docs.google.com/document/d/18L

More info about the campaign on this short video, here: twitter.com/151sidneygrove/sta

I checked and they would be grateful for support from anyone within the UK, not just Newcastle.

This is their Twitter account twitter.com/151sidneygrove.

Terf antics, request 

Someone in our neighbourhood has been putting up transphobic stickers, can anyone recommend a good source of trans-supportive stickers that I can replace them with, ideally UK based?

Good morning, I'm going to a zine making workshop today. No idea what I want to make it about though?? It just sounded fun

I've been thinking about getting back into music by trying to find some fun rhythm games, but there doesn't seem to be much out there that I can use with an electric guitar or midi keyboard / drumkit

tell me about your favorite comfort dinner bc I'm looking for new foods to try. doesn't have to be gluten free, bonus for deep cultural foods that are a hard sell internationally 🌮🥞

When people talk about Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism, is that just a funny phrase or is there some theory behind it? The "fully automated" part is the bit I struggle to see as realistic.

Think Ill start a ‘trans for over 30s’ group

There is not much in terms of things for people in their 30s, especially something that *doesnt* involve alcohol etc

If you live in the Leeds area, in your 30s, trans & need a meet-up for yourself to meet others

Please boost & share so others can see & hopefully boost. I wanna get a gage on here as well as check a few other places & see if there are more folks who need something like this

Request for input from blind programmers 

Saw a tweet saying that tabs work better than spaces when you're using a braille display

Seems logical, but this information doesn't seem to be coming from a blind person, so I thought I'd check

Which form of #Python indentation is more accessible to you?

(sighted people: don't vote, be patient)

I've just deleted a bunch of my to-do items. My productivity mindset has just been stressing me out, and I've come to terms with the fact I can't do all the things. I feel instantly lighter!

Our milk is on the turn. Anyone have a recipe for using up milk that's past its best?

asking trans people "if gender isn't real, why do you want to be the other gender so bad" is like asking people "if rent shouldn't exist, why do you want rent control so badly": because we live in a society that violently enforces gender, and that makes it real. asking trans people, and only them, to pretend like gender doesn't matter, while everyone around us keeps hurting us for it, isn't fair. it's like asking tenants to not give a shit about rent while their landlord is trying to evict them.

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:

(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

It's my birthweek and I wanted the sea so we've come to a seaside BnB in Bournemouth

I’m a hobby baker from Boston, MA.

My dream is to eat a chocolate chip cookie at every bakery I visit and document them. I’m not trying to find the “best” cookie, they’re all good cookies. I’m trying to describe all of the many variations of chocolate chip cookies that there can be.
