I miss written tutorials. I hate how every tutorial is a YouTube now. I don’t want to watch 15 minutes and forget to pay attention for the second that has the detail that I am missing or it just doesn’t show. Even short tutorials are 3 minutes when it could have been a ten second read. I want to skim a page and go directly to the point. Has writing really become that hard to do?
<-- he says, finally actually tuning into a session of the HighEdWeb Accessibility Summit that started almost 3 hours ago
Seems to be the difference between toots (tho stats never update without clicking even on those) and boosts (no activity at all without going to original)
Sallie Mae is about as well run a banking provider as you'd expect from your student loan experience.
Finally sent an internal message through Sallie Mae's terrible banking app about the feature they broke with my account, after failing to get through to someone on their underresourced and crap hours call center, and their response is for security purposes they have to speak to me on the aforementioned underresourced call center.
Thanks for solidifying my decision to close your worthless acct, which mind you was opened entirely ONLINE.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a web designer who had never actually designed a website, for a man who was not LGBTQ and didn't even know his name was involved in a Supreme Court case, for a wedding that never existed, and a solicitation that was completely manufactured by a group of far right lawyers, I guess so they could make discrimination legal. A very legitimate court.

You already should've known how to vote in 2024, but in case you didn't:
The Trump Supreme Court said it was not okay to discriminate on the basis of race to ensure diversity in colleges,
But it is okay for businesses to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation,
And if you have student debt, screw you.
Make your voice heard. Vote for equity and fairness in 2024.

I've been trying not to pay any attention to the tire fire that is BirdChan, but Elno just came out and banned the word #cisgender as hate speech. It's not a race to free speech over there, it's a race to be the far right social network.
