I wrote a patch to "Tusky", the Mastodon app for Android, that adds the ability to crop image attachments. The patch got accepted, so looks like this feature will be in an upcoming release! github.com/tuskyapp/Tusky/pull

Next I'm going to try to write the same feature for the official Mastodon Android app (which currently lacks it) although I'll need to ask them questions about where in the UI to put it. Is Github Issues just the right place to reach those devs?

Continuing to post this because I still do not have anywhere to live other than back with my parents.

Hi my name is Hearth and I'm a trans woman in Florida.

My lease is up at the end of the month and I'm trying desperately to find work and somewhere to live. If you know of someone or somewhere with space, so I don't end up with family. If you have anything, please let me know!

If anyone knows somewhere that might be hiring, preferably remote, I have a ton of experience in tech and will gladly apply.

We do things not because they are easy, but because we thought they were going to be easy.

I don't use a screen reader, but I benefit from image descriptions too because they help me understand what the poster wanted to communicate with the image. They're especially helfpul when it's a screenshot of something I don't have context for.

We still need 370€ this week to get by with the power bills. I'm begging you, please, please boost my toots about it if you can. Like the one I'm responding to rn with the GoFundMe and Paypal links.

As we said in the GFM, nothing's too small. Any amount donated counts.

Having the power cut off would be a disaster for our health. We already live without boiler for months because the landlord refuses to change it.

Please save us, I'm begging you...

Sorry for asking... Thanks for everything

Imagine being stressed from just being around people.

I figured why I like dusk and partially wilderness. There are no people. There are no NTs who put pressure on me just by being around.

fascist cops (germany), genocide 

Would it have been acceptable for Turkey in about 1933-38 conditions to assign German cops that had e.g. self-published doing Nazi-salutes in uniform to the task of repressing protests against Germany's genocidal policies and aggression at events in Ankara or Ä°stanbul?
Absolutely not!

Yet, a roughly equivalent is currently anfenglish.com/features/turkis being done in reverse right now.
The "Grey Wolves", whose salute Germany's cops self-publish doing in uniform, is a Fascist organization responsible for terrorism worldwide mostly but not exclusively ethnicity-based against Kurds, Armenians and others, most infamous being the assassination attempt against a Pope that lead to the protective vehicle "Popemobile" still in use now.
It is the armed wing of the Fascist party MHP which is the backing party of the currently ruling dictator Erdoğan's AKP and over the latest 5-ish years have become so dependent to that alliance that the AKP & MHP are now often considered as effectively the same, being collectively responsible for the genocidal wars of aggression against Rojava/NE Syria and Başûr/N Iraq, as well as persecution of ethnic minorities in especially Bakur/SE Turkey with cases of e.g. military burning hundreds of civilians including toddlers alive in basements, etc.
