Hello world! So I have received some feedback on version 2.0 of the Queer Emoji Pack, but while I'm still working on that, I was finally able to migrate over to a personal Gitea instance. As such, the Queer Emoji Pack v1.0 has now been published! gitea.glitchiest.town/lschm/Qu
With this change, the license for the pack has been updated to CC-BY-NC. All further versions of the pack will be released under that.
A patch to allow for the Pleroma emoji downloader will be included very soon.

The original nextcloud link is no longer functional.

Thanks for all the support, y'all!

... i started having thoughts a while back, in a particularly annoyed moment, about the proprietary nature of so much of the audio/music industry. As an audio engineer, this is a particularly true sentiment, as so *incredibly* much of the gear my fellow engineers and i use is entirely proprietary -- both in the software and hardware departments. From how our soundboards are not-entirely-but-close-enough-to black boxes, to how the new digital age has brought so many new proprietary "standards" -- Dante, AES50, etc. There are actually open/non-proprietary standards out there for audio and video transmission over networks, and for sound control. There is no seriously good reason why we should throw hundreds of thousands of dollars at single pieces of equipment.

With this in mind, i started a new project: OpenSourceStudio. The goal of the project is to create open hardware versions of the tools we use on a daily basis in our work, and to allow for a far more modular studio. So far, i have a... start, in the form of a wiki. While this project is still early stages, i believe it has great potential to make our lives better and our work easier.

The wiki: osstudio.wiki.klisglitch.space (Registration is closed, and edit access can be requested through the Matrix community.)
Matrix community: +osstudio:matrix.klisglitch.space

i look forward to working with those of you who see potential in this project! And please, spread the word! Thank you!

Money help request, stress, test, CDL work 

my CDL test is finally actually scheduled.

On top of the $275 it's going to cost to take the test itself, it's going to cost me $600 to rent a truck to take it with. Most of $1000 for a single attempt.

Our money shit is already hell. If i pay this whole thing, i am not sure we'll be able to pay rent for the next few months to get out of this current place without getting evicted. So... i am begging for help here. Please help me cover this test?

Capitalism, audio work, computing, help? 

i am getting very tired of paying mclaren for a GUI controller for rtpmidi. Every. New. Fucking. Release. 20.04. 20.10. Now 22.04.

Does anybody have an alternate fucking way of doing this? That doesn't require hours on the CLI just to set up?

Like i get it it's $8 but literally i have never been paid for like any of my audio work that uses this system and it's so frustrating.

Help???

Does anyone have experience with the Porkbun registrar? Looking at switching over to them (from godaddy) and wanted to know others opinions first. Poll has other options: please let me know what and why.

Boosts appreciated!

Request for help, to CDL A drivers, Denver/Colorado Springs Colorado area, ELDT, boosts requested 

I had my CDL A a few years back. Like, 2015 was when I finally quit after about three years on the road. I am trying to get back into it because a friend needs a local CDL A driver and I want to do it.

Due to the new rules by the FMCSA (ELDT), the local schools are fucking swamped and not accepting refresher course drivers who only need a couple days.

Since the schools are swamped and I need to get my license back sooner than later, I only have a couple options. One: I take the test dry after as much mental preparation as I can. Two: I ask for help from a local driver who can work with me in renting a Ryder rig and sit with me while I go through and brush up on my skills before the test.

I need about a day and a half with the rig. Half a day on the road, and a day doing skills. I did plenty of docking when I first drove, so I'm not super worried about that side of backing and parking. My biggest worry is parallel parking, hence needing to work on that.

Are there any drivers near Denver or Colorado Springs or even Pueblo who would be willing to help me out with this? I understand it's a pretty serious ask but this isn't my first rodeo, I just need some practice first.

(Please boost if you can. If you are a driver and are willing to help me out here, a DM would be hugely appreciated in a reply on this thread.)

Money request, medical hell 

Hi. My spouse and I are fighting with medical debt on top of all our other shit and really need some more help with it.

We're currently sitting at the need for $3210 to get this shit off our plates (this, after the ~$650 that was already donated, thank you all so much). Any help is greatly appreciated.

Money help request begging, medical hell 

Hi everyone.

my nesting partner and i are dealing with a fuckload of debt from some medical hell that cropped up last year. We need help, desperately.

We are looking at something like $3500.

Please help? Please boost?

Paypal: kathryn@schmockermountain.rocks
Ko-Fi: lindsay@schmockermountain.rocks
Liberapay: liberapay.com/LindsaySchmocker

Any help is appreciated. We're in way too deep water right now and need that help. Please.

Good morning.
Tomorrow is the first of April. While acknowledging that the day is traditionally a "prank" day: just don't. There are very few pranks that don't ultimately hurt someone. It doesn't matter what your intentions are with a prank, it doesn't matter if you think the intended target should have a "thicker skin" or any of that. If you play a prank and pass it off as just a joking prank? You're an asshole.

Let the tradition die.

Money request, help, medical bills 

Hi uh... so i hate doing this but right now i don't really have a choice. We need the help.

Some medical bills are going to be coming at us Very Soon, against money we so do not have. While i am supposed to be training for my job already, things went super bad earlier today and i have missed my second day of training. This shouldn't end my job, thankfully, but it's still gonna be a while before i get paid, and it ain't gonna be nearly enough fast enough.

We're looking at needing like $4000.

Please help? Boosts appreciated?
