Imposter syndrome 

Hey everyone, long time no toot!

I'm about to go get some of my photography printed as art prints to sell and I'm feeling a whole bunch of imposter syndrome right now.

In the future, ideally a website would not have to code to one single lowest-common denominator for all sorts of questions (Do my users prefer reduced motion? Do they prefer underlined links? Do they prefer autoplaying animated GIFs? Do they prefer high contrast?) and would instead be informed by the user agent about the user's preferences.

For those interested, these are the CSS media queries I mentioned:


Because of these, a website can automatically infer whether a user prefers fewer animations (e.g. due to vestibular disorders) or whether they prefer dark mode, based on an OS-wide setting. The "reduced motion" one is especially impressive, as it works across a wide variety of OSes – Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, even Ubuntu!

Spiritual exercise/s:
Dare to trust
that you are loved.

in your breath and bones
that you are loved.

Live as a beloved one;
share love generously.

[for beginners,
as well as for those who are not,
even the first step
may yet ask a lot]

Is anyone on here knowledgeable at all about Linux and UEFI booting? I've been googling, trying things, and reading wikis all day with almost no luck trying to get this dual boot set up. I've done it before, but I messed something up this time and I don't know how to fix it...

George Monbiot: *Shell is not a green saviour. It’s a planetary death machine*

"… Two months ago, #ShellMustFall

announced a $300m fund for “investing in natural ecosystems” over the next three years.
The fund sounds big, and it is – until you compare it with Shell’s annual income of $24bn. Shell’s transition towards a low-carbon future is almost invisible in its annual report. Renewable energy doesn’t figure in its summary of financial results. When I checked with the company, it told me it had no discrete figure for its income from low-carbon technologies. Nor could it tell me how much it invested in them last year. But it did pour $25bn of investment into oil and gas in 2018, including exploration for new fossil fuel reserves in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico and off the coasts of Brazil and Mauritania. Among its assets are 1,400 mineral leases in Canada, where it makes synthetic crude oil from tar sands. Some transition. …"

Okay, has anyone not seen the new discourse thing?

I get angry and frustrated what seems like easier and more often than I used to, but I think maybe that's a step in the right direction for me as a 9.

They come quickly, but also pass fairly easily. I used to immediately suppress every detectable negative emotion I had, only to quietly sabotage things passive aggressively later.

A rant about Church goers and pastors... (-) 

@riayngrey that makes a lot of sense. I think the cult of personality is an issue. If a congregation has flat leadership structure, one that is a true plurality of leadership, some of this get mitigated. But, the approach that says, “We must get people in the seats and do whatever it takes,” is the real issue. Consumerism is the disease. I think liturgical/credal traditions have less issues with this. @Ricci

A rant about Church goers and pastors... (-) 

Rant over. Almost.

I’m so tired of the fake. I’m exhausted by the complaining and whining of the way churches are. There is a different way of being the church, but the vast majority of pastors and church goers will not engage it.
