Some good news for anyone who loves RMTransit's public transport explainer videos, but doesn't like Google and YouTube.

Looks like @RM_Transit now has an account on PeerTube here, which you can follow from Mastodon: @reece

(If you're the first to follow the account from your instance it will initially appear empty. Videos will start appearing in your feed after you follow.)

Awesome news. I'm trying to get to the channel !transit through my Lemmy instance but it's not working yet.

Let’s talk tags on clothing. I hate them and they annoy me to no end. And even if I cut them off, the tiny bit remaining always manages to touch me and I hate it. 😩

Do tags bother you?

Ford launches website to request a free adapter for existing Ford EV owners to use Tesla Supercharger stations



Ranvier ,

Understandable, but NACS is the new charging standard, and other chargers will begin using it as well, so it would be good to have the adapter. Newer evs models from other companies are switching to it too. There should start being some charging options with NACS that aren't tesla run chargers starting later this year.

BombOmOm ,
@BombOmOm@lemmy.world avatar

NACS is the north American charging standard. If you have an electric car, that is the plug to have. Remember, you can still use the old CCS chargers, they won't complain. You will just increasingly have issues finding a working one (which was already a problem and was a major reason NACS became the standard).

There are really only three licenses you should ever consider when making a new project in earnest: GPL if you want it to stay free forever, MIT if you don't care. Put an L in front of GPL if your project is a library. The end.

Any CC license including CC0 looks fine on paper, and they are court-tested, but anyone with a legal department won't risk dealing with one in the context of software, because CC licenses are for creative works and scientific research, not software. The main thing they're missing is a warranty release.

The Unlicense feels like an earnest attempt to fill the void that CC0 fails to fill, but it isn't a tested license. Everyone with a lawyer won't touch it with a 10 foot pole because they don't want to be the ones to find out how enforceable it really is. Besides, the only thing it gains you over the MIT is the ability to go uncredited. Which is nice feature; if people didn't want this we wouldn't have so many attempts to make a license that has it. But I feel like of all the features of a free software license one should be concerned about, explicit lack of credit is a pretty low-rung one.

Direct public domain insertion is good and effective, but is not global. Many places in the world have no formal legal system to do this (Germany is a famous example). PD dedication without a permissive fallback license makes your code completely unusable in these places. It's exactly why the CC0 and Unlicense exist in the first place.

Every single other license is either a meme license not worth the toilet paper it's written on, a weaker version of the GPL/MIT, or the GPL/MIT with extra steps.

    O’Brien, who built a national profile last year with a threat to strike at UPS, was more combative.

    “We have a message for the white collar crime syndicates known as the studios,” he said. “When you fuck with the Teamsters, or any other union, it’s a full contact sport. Put your helmets on and buckle your chin straps.”

    @punishmenthurts @theautisticcoach @actuallyautistic Colors are neither male nor female, high heels are if anything uncomfortable.

    I never got why so few see it like me and all others treat that stuff so important. I guess, it's because I am autistic.

    Travelling for a week for work is exhausting. It leaves me feeling overwhelmed, overstimulated, and burnt out. Like a sponge wrung out.

    I get home and am irritable and mean and asking for space to decompress is taken as a personal slight that I don’t like someone, when it’s only that I need to calm my body down and have no expectations on me.

    I love this person very much but don’t know how to manage this part of work travel.

    What might others suggest?

    lifewithtrees OP ,
    @lifewithtrees@mstdn.social avatar

    @abreaction @lifewithtrees @actuallyautistic exactly that. And it also throws routines out of whack. Are you still travelling or did you end up looking for other work?

    @abreaction@mastodon.world avatar

    @lifewithtrees @actuallyautistic

    Yes, it always took me a week to feel normal again after getting back. Not to mention many lost weekends.

    I changed work around so that I was traveling less. It's something you can negotiate whenever you get a new job also.

    How I know I'm currently close to meltdown/shutdown:

    • I feel itchy all the time
    • I'm quite irritable
    • fingers look bad (sores from scratching and biting)
    • rejection sensitivity is increased
    • tired and exhausted
    • everything is too loud/bright/smelly
    • verbal communication is increasingly difficult
    • increase in zoning out

    I'm in desperate need of a real break, but work is piling up. Had a very good day yesterday, but was obviously not enough to recharge sufficiently.

    @Sci_Fi_FanGirl @actuallyautistic Argh, that sounds a tough environment. But yeah a would definitely suggest a word with some higher-up who’s vaguely sympathetic to staff stress; might be a good time to explain you’re near getting that certificate but need the support now. 🤞

    Same here! I mean, it was always the case, even when I had no skin condition that was visible. Now it's almost logical my nerve ends would overreact when under stress, but it has always been that way, from early childhood on.

    But the BBC, still block anyone from using a VPN on their site, regardless of whether they have a TV license or not... because how dare people try to stop invasion of their privacy by an organisation they pay to access but can't.

    Why exactly should I pay for a license at all? You won't let me watch anything
