Pinned toot

So I see all these interfaces for a on , but (not being a frequent git user) I feel like I'm not understanding the point of them. Why not just use the actual 'git' command? Is there something I'm missing?

one estimate suggests that around half of all data center energy usage is now tied to Bitcoin mining

futher, the energy consumption of Bitcoin is more than the combined energy use of Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Apple

if bitcoin were a country, it is estimated to place approximately 26th as the most energy hungry nation

all this while adding nothing of value to society

Sorry for the quiet...had the desire for more engagement, so I was spending more time on the birdsite

The idea of a "personal carbon footprint" was popularized by BP, the world's 6th largest polluter. They knew that passing the buck onto "individual responsibility" ensured they would never be held accountable.

UK politics / education 

Schools aren't allowed to use anti-capitalist external resources when planning their curriculum. What the fuck?

ok so apparently there's this app called "civvl" now that hires gig workers to evict people.

go download it, uninstall it, then leave a 1-star review and report it.

The thing about killing the cop inside your head is that it's not a one-time deal

I'll take a win, but that defense is fucking atrocious

I hate when the play on Thursday nights because I end up missing most of

surveillance capitalism needs to be destroyed completely

Changing my name is costing me $632, and that isn't including a new ID
friends chucked me $221 as birthday presents

I think I may have just made my 61 year old mother a fan of Disturbed...

9/11, US imperialism 

i didn't expect this to explode but since it did, i'll elaborate a little on this

in 1970 allende was the first democratically elected, openly socialist president in history. he enacted many social policies despite being antagonized by most of the senate, and people will attest to the relative success of said policies

however, the US was still in the cold war, and they weren't going to let a socialist government flourish in their "backyard" that is to say, south america

9/11, US imperialism 

9/11 is coming up, which means i'm legally obligated to point out 9/11 here in chile is a different tragedy & also important

the 11th of september is when the chilean right wing (funded by the US gov.) bombed our gov. building, killed our democratically elected socialist president, gutted the welfare state & enacted martial law

followed by 17 years of a violent fascist dictatorship in which at least 3k people died, 40k were victimized and half of the country was traumatized

uspol, electoralism ~ 

at this point I don't even know what to say to progressives who still think the Democratic Party will save us. how many times have they pulled this same trick? vote if you feel like it, especially if you have a leftist primary challenger on the ballot, but don't act like they give a shit or are going to do anything for us.

Why the hell are the .gay domains so damn expensive? I keep seeing people posing screenshots of them and they're THOUSANDS of dollars.

trans stuff within my profession 

Im doing CEUs & this one is a peer to peer discussion on LGBT+ case studies, and they keep saying "you may not have the education to understand & competently deal with trans athletes & their specific issues, and that's ok" and like,,No? It's not. This is a failure of our education and it needs to be fixed. They are our patients; that means we need to be educated in this area.

They did say "seek out the education on your own" but like, it should BE in curricula
