Today is trans day of visibility, and Italy has recorded the highest number of homicides of trans people in the continent. Our parliament is still discussing if a bill against homo-transphobia should be enacted or not. This needs to happen immediately.

@lucik thank you for your ideas!! I have managed to start working on some stuff thanks to a couple of pals who had some ideas, and I will be helping them. I bypassed the need for creativity by outsourcing that to someone else hahaha. Thank you for your advice!!

@JohanEmpa I mean it doesn't have to be that advanced really, but I just have zero creativity lol

@JohanEmpa advanced programming... it's interesting and useful (and a lot to remember!)

@JohanEmpa everyone I know struggles with this apparently, and now that it’s all online we also struggle with distance studying. We can’t even rely on each other to just do homework together, it’s a mess 😢 thank you for your idea though, I’ll see if anyone is available for some project

real talk, the biggest obstacle between me and programming is that I have no creativity at all. professors tell us to try out the stuff we learn in class but I can't figure out a way to use code in practice. if I have no context for the code it feels like writing random extracts from a book that doesn't exist. is it up to me to come up with the context? how do I do that? it all feels so abstract and I can't figure things out

@cadadr volere è potere! Poi comunque lo scrivi già bene, non credo che avrai difficoltà a riprendere

@cadadr tenere vive le lingue non è facile, ma è anche vero che non muoiono mai completamente. sono sicuro che torneresti perfettamente fluente con poco impegno :)

@matt yeah happened to me too. Guess I’ll watch fewer videos 🤷🏻

@JohanEmpa I’ve only deactivated it for the moment, to see if I miss it, etc. I’m not a fan of how it’s run and how it affects my time and mental health - but I am also not a fan of not being able to keep in touch with people :( idk

I've deactivated my instagram, idk how I feel about it. on the one hand there's loads of people I've met abroad and online that I wouldn't be in touch with if I deleted it entirely, but on the other hand... is a relationship that dies after social media is gone really worth the time I spend on a platform like insta? mh.

@matt I feel like this is something he would absolutely do

@tewha @brunoph yeah my thoughts exactly, a friend of mine is allergic to caffeine. The other way around might just turn out to be a bummer

"please disable your content/ad blocker" is asking someone to make an exception to their security posture for your site to work. It's not better than "please disable your AV software"

As a rule, that's a terribly rude and foolish request, and you should be ashamed. If there's a genuinely good reason why you'd ask a user to take risks to view your content, you should be very clear about what that reason is — and "it doesn't work otherwise" is not clear

@lrvick @Crylo I had never heard of any of this before, that’s interesting and I’ll definitely be researching more (not least because it’s way too technical for me at this stage, I’ll be honest). Do you know of any chat apps that might be better than Signal to your judgement?
