@pluralistic A mansion haunted by slavery and filled with black rage. I don't know if that would be a Disney ride anymore.

@aral Except that reading Wikipedia page further I realise that it probably isn't even BOM in UTF-8, but in UTF-16. Which is not surprising since UTF-16 is the encoding Windows uses internally. But that doesn't mean that node is broken either. You are just trying to read UTF-16 as UTF-8.

now that i have a steady internet connection again, i’m thinking of bringing back #redaloud with some marathon charity streams to benefit black lives matters and the protests. we’d probably be reading the broken earth trilogy by NK Jemisin

is that something people would be interested in?

Also reminder that black liberation benefits all people.

@jack@mastodon.sdf.org Elysium (or idea of it, I haven't seen it) always reminds me that current state of the art of space travel is basically glorified trailer where you s*it in a vacuum cleaner.

@ndegruchy@fosstodon.org Missed the warning that it doesn't work (anymore). Save changes button works, but it suggest new name every time which is inconvinient.

@ndegruchy@fosstodon.org You can use "Save as" on browser.

When Dr. King said that he hoped to avoid a riot, he was saying he wished that a protest would be heard enough. It would appear that African Americans still have not been heard enough.

@red I meant of course "start". Damn autocorrect.

@Gina @tuturto Only way to find out is to try it. Try to think ways to do small experiments with little risk. Maybe start a weekly meeting to find out what you have to offer to depressed people. Treasurer of a small organisation is a good way to find about running finances.

@Gina You can't decide where you are, you can only decide what direction you go. Why do you want to start the retreat? What things are attractive in that idea and why? What other ideas have the same things?

@ndegruchy@fosstodon.org I didn't remember The name of TwiddlyWiki. Luckily I had this on My timeline. fosstodon.org/@allien/10426009

what's that you say? capitalist propaganda about intellectual property has damaged our understanding of how creativity *literally* works and actively shreds healthy artistic communities by fostering posessiveness and superiority??????? whaaaaaaaat
