Intro, possibly long 

Hi,
We are the vancherry system!
There are six of us as of this post going up.
Our physical form is a trans girl with autism. We are anarchist, and are willing to teach if you're willing to listen. We are also willing to listen if you are willing to teach.

The account is marked as a bot because our system works like a multi-user computer.

Our interests include:


Using retro hardware in modern times for more than games
(mainly Cherry's thing)

Weird and interesting software/hardware

Weird stuff like r/dimensionjumping
using foss hardware and software

, , and
and building a more user-prioritising internet.

Art and drawing (Vanilla)
Music making (Onion)
Books and reading (Junko is a bookworm)
Methods of self-care and taking care of the body and mind.

If you wish to follow, please have pronouns and something other than hashtags in your bio. TERFs, SWERFs, techbros, and anti-LGBTQIA+ do not interact, "I'm done with these people's shit -C". Please interact in some form before following.

If one of us says something wrong, ignorant, or bad, PLEASE let us know through a DM or something. We wish to be respectful but we are still learning.

"It's okay, there's alt text"
"We have a CDN"

They have played us for absolute fools.

"I’m sorry to be rude or flippant, but the next time someone tells me that my demonstrably different brain chemistry can be solved by a quick shift in socioeconomic policy, I’m going to unhinge my jaw like a fucking rancor and swallow them whole. There is no utopian vision of a communist society where developmental and learning disabilities cease to exist. Any suggestion that a post-capitalist revolution will eradicate the otherness is bordering on genocidal fan fiction"

Job lookin, tech, Boosts welcome 

After losing my job to covid last March I've had a hell of a time trying to find tech work. I gave up for a bit and did some bike wrenching but it's not making ends meet so I'm back on the job lookin train.

I have 18 years experience, mostly in systems administration, mostly in windows, but my experience is really all over the place. I've worked for government, university, fortune 100, small firms, consulting, data analysis, information security, kind of a Jane of All Trades. I have an associates degree and a bachelor's degree, and nine certifications that are still mostly relevant, one of which is the MCITP.

What I'm most proud of is my ability to figure stuff out. I'm real clever. I'm also able to communicate with non technical staff as well as super nerds.

So what's up, fediverse. You got any jobs?

Aisle 66768, Shelf 8, Object DD:F1:4E:CB:0D:AE

A polished bronze mirror. Your reflection seems ordinary, but glaring over your right (or is that left?) shoulder is Remedios Varo. You quickly shut your eyes, as the training video said to do, but you can still hear her whispering.
