OK, I’m Źmicier. My main account is @lime. Nice to meet you.
I want an account to write random stuff in my life, including negative. And perpahs for shitposting! :) I will write in random languages, and won’t stick to one, so I guess this instance will do. I hope you don’t mind me here.
I consider Belarusian and Ukrainian my native languages, but I speak Russian better. I also speak English, and learned bits of other languages (Latin, Portuguese, Swedish). #introductions
Amazon's attempt to control the book world extends everywhere, they own the following:
Librarything (40%, through Abebooks)
You don't have to get your books from Amazon or use Amazon book services. There are much more ethical alternatives available:
In Google Translate, putting Belarusian text and selecting Azerbaijani language yields very interesting results
[Picture has a passage from 'Simon the Musician', Bel. poem by Jakub Kołas: 'Hey, centuries-old barrows, // Witnesses of the distant past! // Who raised you here, // Whose hand and whose will // Scattered you across the fields, // Protectors of ancient deeds? // Alas, you'll never say, // What the ages have told you!']
In case you missed it: the Twine game "You Are Jeff Bezos". You wake up one day as Jeff, and try to give away all of his money.
#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.
It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.
It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.
It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.
It's not how e-mail should work.
Consider dropping GMail.
Google болей не дазваляе размяшчаць рэкламу беларускіх, татарскіх, казахскіх відэа на YouTube. І прапануе ставаць кантэнт па-руску: https://twitter.com/franakviacorka/status/1163758782834495491
Так что толькі блакіроўшчыкі рэкламы і толькі NewPipe.
Linux, open source, toxic culture, eugenics, discussion, long
If the open source community wants to be successful, they can't continue to shun diversity of people like they have been.
They have to learn to take criticism and improve. Glimpse is attempting to improve GIMP based on the criticism the GIMP devs outright rejected.
If you as a developer aren't willing to grow and evolve to better serve your app's users, you'll always be an outlier like GIMP and Linux.
Hong Kong protestors are posting in phonetic Cantonese to stop machines and trolls from the mainland understanding and derailing the conversation, etc.
Alrighty, my little mimichtin, time to thread up about social rules in the Aztec Empire. #StarTalk
First things first, as always, do keep in mind that this was an *empire*. It spanned across many cultures, many cities, and tribes. There will always be some cultural differences here and there so this largely applies to Tenochtitlan. Some information is also debated, due to *G E N O C I D E*. Much information formally recognized comes from Spanish Codices written Catholic friars, so 🤷
Although it doesn't teach you writing, I so much prefer the approach of Language Transfer over Duolingo. Give it a try!
