I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

But:

- In order to reduce, there need to be proper infrastructure to compensate for the thing being reduced;
- In order to reuse, things need to be durable and easily maintainable, modularly upgradable and repairable;
- If you go to the recycle step ignoring the first two, you've already lost.

As we see, just "changing consumer habits" doesn't work.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

I drew this comic a while back, and with the start of another pride month with another slew of terrifying things going on, here is my comic about Feeling Safe and lashing out against the phrase "you don't have to make your sexuality your whole personality"

CW for describing a memory of people being transphobic, but I think it's worth not blurring the entire comic for it

#feditip Mastodon isn't the only social network implementation on the fediverse. Misskey, Pleroma, Friendica, Honk, and Gotosocial (WIP) also offer microblogging. WriteFreely and Plume offer long-form blogging; Peertube offers video streaming; Pixelfed offers image sharing; Mobilizon offers event organization; etc. Everyone on the Fediverse can interact with all these other networks to some degree.

Fedi people tend to take alt text seriously...a bit too seriously IMO. Alt text shouldn't contain significant editorializing or information not found in the image. Save that for your post body.

Decide early if you want a locked profile or not. If your profile is locked then someone being a "mutual" means a lot more; on the other hand you may have less "reach".

Don't get too attached to your first instance. After some time, you might discover a new instance that suits you better.

Not all instances have a super low character limit.

Cis ppl stop giving long winded excuses for getting name/pronouns wrong and instead just correct yourself and move on Challenge.
Difficulty Level: Impossible

Hey cis ppl, we appreciate you trying, but if you are corrected, you don't need to say:
- "sorry I'm trying my best"
- "you've been X for so long and it's hard to adjust"
- "sorry I'm used to you being X"
- ect.
(These are common with ppl who knew you pre- social transition)

Just correct yourself and move on, *please.*

I feel like the advantage of being a cat would be that you’re a cat but the disadvantage would be that it’d be more difficult to post
