@starkatt delete, save in new place in new (downscaled) resolution, I don't know how attaching comments straight to image files works but that'd be cool?

Anyone have a recommendation on software for managing photos on Windows 10?

NANO is a blockchain-based token used for money and a store of value. It's advertised as three things: fast, fee-less, and green (no mining was done in the creation of NANO tokens: they were *poofed* into existence then distributed with CAPTCHAs)

BANANO is a fork of NANO that takes NANOs strengths and adds... levity and light-heartedness. Memes.

Currently, you can get BANANOS for Folding@Home, the distributed computing project that does simulations for academic research.

Some of y'all might do F@H anyway - if I recall one of y'all even does it only when your local green energy is at surplus? So cool.

Anyway! This might be something y'all might be interested in.

personally i can't wait until the speculative investing phase is over and I can use NANO instead of USD to handle affairs inside my community.

like, even just not having to see andrew jackson's face every day would be real chill.

Y'all talk about blockchain like it's just Bitcoin and just speculative investing.

Here's an analysis of how blockchain is being used in pharmaceutical, food, and agricultural industries in Europe; the different contexts, and problems being changed:

Starting a thread on the discrepancies in cumulative count of fatal
cases. Whose data do you trust?

After following the various statistics a while now, it seems that Johns Hopkins[3] continually undercounts or minimizes the numbers compared to the other two large globally-oriented databases? By as much as 10,000 or 5,000 deaths? (2,562,730 - 2,551,200 is a difference of 11.5K deaths.

The JH[3] dashboard seems to be what Google[4] and other large media are using for their reporting, too.

End food apartheid now, because by the time you need to, it will be too late.

(PLEASE seriously if you live in the West and eat food, click this link. You need to understand the severity of the threats on your horizon.)

Gee if only there were some actions that nearly every human could do that would result in the environment around them producing food!

Ahh well! Hopefully those dollar bills y'all have become edible once there's more than 200 trillion of them.

bigotry mention, stop boosting shitty people 

because apparently folk forget:

- kev quirk is ableist
- alex gleason is transphobic

no one's tech take is so clever to look past that shit

if you can't stop yourself from boosting them, just block them.

seriously i like some of the people here but most of the posts I see when I open this tab are just awful expressions of hatred and fear.

I haven't asked for money for a bit, but with spring coming up I'm doing my budget and y'know? It's looking like I'll need somewhere north of 0 dollars in order to get my projects finished.

Small projects:
- pay bills (internet bill went up AGAIN this month, second time this year >_<)
- buy some tools for fixing bikes to keep here at the CBGAZ
- Send money to Native folk who gave me seeds even though I have no seeds to swap back.
- Pay for another month of medication for a local person.

Medium projects:
- Buy posts and wire for plotting out quarter-acre garden I'm breaking ground on sometime next week or the week after.

Big projects:
- Pay to have a loom moved from New York to Ohio where it can be used by and for BIPOC making textiles.
- Help with the deposit on a 1/4 acre of land for a mom and their kid who keep getting displaced. Someone's got a free trailer, and we've got the folk to fix it up once it's on site.
- Pay for personal dental surgery (I'll postpone this one forever; there's surely one anarchist dentist somewhere in the world.)

Previously, I was waiting on assistance from a local mutualist group with a lot of these projects, which is why I've talked about these before but didn't focus on asking for money: it was assumed I'd be compensated once they had their budgeting meetings. However, that group is choosing to horde the money they solicited under false premises, so I'm left fundraising for myself!

My gifts-to-community and purchases-for-mutualism in February was about $869, while gifts-received was about $190. The difference came from interest-free loans from friends and isn't sustainable!

(Want to give a large amount? I can probably get you receipt for your taxes. Want to mail me seeds? I can probably get you a shipping address. just let me know.)

I just realized "second time this year" isn't accurate, I meant "second time in a year"

@amiloradovsky so do you think this is a generational problem, like we're gonna need a greater ratio of chip designers in society in order to actual distribute/decentralize the field/industry/market?

This succulent was just quietly growing under some rotting birch leaves all winter, apparently. I found it growing wild in a big of town landscaping so snagged a few leaves from it and put them in this ltitle tray, and completely forgot about them.

Such a nice surprise!

@Scout What's awful is I even clone a lot of stuff but the rooting hormone is so far away...
