#SolGarden is a #neurodivergent forum, and my lovely #actuallyautistic @cassowary is our tech minion and hosts it on Linode. We are a one income family at the best of times, but unfortunately we're now a zero income family right now

The domain is $60 a year, and the server is $35 a month.

If you can throw a couple bucks our way to help us keep our community funded, that'd be amazing, but if you can't that's totally alright too! :boost_requested:

Asking for financial help 

Hey folks - things are starting to look up, but I’m still in the hole right now. I have less than $50 at the moment and have bills to pay at the end of the month. I really hope this is the last month I have to ask, but: I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. My Patreon and PayPal accounts are below:

I also have a GitHub Sponsors that accepts one-time payments, though I receive payouts slowly there:

i had a history teacher in HS that i would always ask questions to and he always would say “that would make a great research project”

and while i was annoyed at the time it did definitely help me up my research and discernment skills online

musing about pigs and work + 

anyway all this is to say that working on that farm really taught me a lot about myself and radicalized my thoughts on the working class and the workplace

musing about pigs and work + 

the piglets especially lmao. they were small enough sometimes to squeeze through the fencing into other pens or into the general property before they’d ever been shown it by us or another pig and they try to fight the big pigs if they’re not neutered/spayed And they’re extra scared of people because they’re so small so good luck convincing them of anything

musing about pigs and work + 

the pigs always slowed me down at work

they’re prey animals, so sometimes they’d run away. i would have to find them and convince them to come back with me. they’re curious and clever so sometimes they would wander off property, or places they shouldn’t. sometimes they’d get stuck in fences.

they’re social and, again, curious so if they were brave enough or knew me they would want to socialize. oinking, rubbing against me, requesting belly rubs by flopping over.

Job drama 

My manager, director, and all of my teammates are quitting their jobs. I’ve never seen anything like this!

This means I need to hurry up my job search. Anyone need a Senior Machine Learning Engineer??? Lol, lmao, 😭

psa: your co-workers who have been there for longer and don't work as fast as you aren't ""lazy,"" they're exhausted. they were in your position once too, and felt like they had to put in all their energy ito the job -- and they burnt out. you should learn from them, and slow down now. take rest breaks and coffee breaks, let things take a little longer; your reward for extra speed will only ever be more assignments, inevitably grinding you down. your exploitative employer isn't worth it.

“but if you befriend all the npcs there wont be as much fighting”

love reading about the same issues over and over again as people in power and/or devs continue to ignore victims of online harassment and abuse 😌🙏🏻

they're currently set to launch in November and are advertising to established streamers to reserve their usernames now (in exchange for financial support). again, they have no actual policies written up to keep streamers safe.

to my understanding, the platform was created by other CCs in response to Twitch's lack of action and it could get better from here but this is where it stands right now
