@maddiefuzz @bryceyoungquist @thegibson Yes as long as you can tolerate the winter.
The winters in Portland are basically 40 - 45 F on the low side 50 - 55 F on the high side. Rain showers, overcast skies like something out of a depressing Nior film, and 12 hours of night.
Seattle is pretty similar except replace the showers with insufferable unrelenting drizzle, the best way I can describe it is you're living in a cloud.

Pol, Making fun of Moxie, Signal, Decentralization. 

signal.org/blog/run-a-proxy/
As much as this is probably the wrong time to point this out, but if signal was the thing that Moxie hated soo much, decentralized, this wouldnt be a plea right now NBDJS. My iranian buddies that use Tox, Matrix, and other things that are more decentralized than Signal have had no problems.

Now on the flip side if you can run a proxy. Just because Im taking a dig at Moxie doesnt mean we cant multitask and help people in need out.

Well I think its time to give vivaldi a swing because horizontal tabs

Military adolescent penis jokes 

TIL about the B-1R and that the pentegon has no sense of humor en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockwell

So the platform is affectionately known as the B-One or Bone, the B-1R would have been the BOneR...
WE COULD HAVE TAKEN THE AMBIGUITY OUT OF WAR AND LET PEOPLE KNOW WHY WE WERE BOMBING PEOPLE! but noooooo the pentegon had to be kill joys

MH history, PTSD 

Having a discussion with a buddy it was fun to point out to him really there is nothing new under the sun, we just didnt have words for it. He challenged me and I was like "Dude PTSD, go look at the stories of antiquity of retired soldiers, like really read them with a modern lens, those guys are text book untreated combat PTSD down to the self treatment alcoholism..." and when he tried to counter and looked for stories from history even more modern history with like WWI he started to realized holy eff how long have we just let people suffer with their demons....

No police sirens, no crowded streets that go on for miles and miles, no flickery electric lights. Working on a farm has a clear routine. I’d be a badass at spinning cloth or churning butter because I find endless repetition soothing rather than boring.

>> [ . . . ] What I’m saying is that disability exists in the context of the environment. Our environment isn’t making people autistic in the sense of some chemical causing brain damage. But we have created a modern environment which is hostile to autistic people in many ways, which effectively makes us more disabled. [ . . . ]

food, period talk 

my partner always is amazed when I go to help her during that time of her cycle. Towards the middle of it she craves McDonald's fries. Tonight the closest one was over ran and backed up down the block, so I have a mission and I'm going to complete it! So as i reach the next one over she pings me "are they growing the taters?" and I explain what happened, shes like "I'd have aborted" and I said "no maam I have a mission" fries were had

Money help request, car wreck, mental health -----, just... bad, :boost_requested: 

So uh. i was driving Long Distance and made a Mistake and smooshed my front end into the ass end of somebody else's car. They got a slightly bent in section.
i lost my AC compressor and the radiator fan literally can't spin... plus a bunch of cosmetic plastic.

i am over a thousand kilometers from home. Luckily, i have family in the area who are helping but... one of two things is gonna happen.
One, they deem the vehicle fixable, fix it.
Two, they total the vehicle.
If they deem the vehicle fixable, i am out a vehicle for a few weeks plus i will have to come all the way back out to pick up my car.
If they total it, i will have to deal with the bank... and trying to get a new car.

i am stressed to fuck and at the end of my rope and it's fraying pretty hard. Can anyone help please? Money will help offset some of the stress and make things a little easier to deal with.
