@cincodenada Do you use Linux? I was curious about how to customize button functionality and all in this case.
Being blind is shit in a pandemic
Never mind touching my face, I'm used to touching /everything/ when I'm outside: to find out where it is, to read the label on something in a store...I've tried going up and down stairs without using the railing and that's a bad idea!
And food shopping. I did so little of this before but now it all has to be me! Can I not find a thing because it's missing or because I'm blind? I'm playing this game a lot now
And the screen thing. Ugh.
Had to move my laptop to the other side of the desk as its webcam would inadvertently catch my partner in its viewing angle.
@gomez I had a really old model for almost ten years—my father must have bought it almost twenty years ago. It was fantastic! I miss it too.
COVID19 pet PSA, ferrets
Ferrets can catch COVID19. "If you’re sick, stay away from your ferret. If a ferret is exposed to an infected person, keep it away from other people (and other pets)." https://www.wormsandgermsblog.com/2020/03/articles/animals/other-animals/covid-19-and-ferrets/ (Link CW: describes scientific experimentation on and intentional infection of ferrets).
April Fool's advice PSA and advice; implies COVID-19
Remember: Today is April Fool's. There is likely to be more misinformation around than usual.
Fuck this day in general, but *fuck this day* this year in particular, as stress is at an all-time high.
You don't have to accept being a target of misinformation for someone else's amusement.
Don't be afraid to tell anyone who is acting reckless today that they are an asshole. Consider blocking and unfollowing if they're on your social platforms.
Thanks for the replies! Decided to try the MX Vertical. I'll update this with my impressions when I finally get it a week from now.
@james Oh, so you can use it wired as well? That's really nice. That's probably the better priced ergonomic mouse I'm seeing here.
@Wiley Oooh I've never heard of that one before! Looks really nice.
@th That looks really nice, thanks for sharing!
@ak It's so useful! It's where I keep my most used devices, cables and pens.
An Information Systems undergrad so obsessed with fediverse meta they're writing an entire thesis about that.
