"making the best of every day" is not about the peaks

it's about the valleys

it's resting, it's healing, it's nourishing

it's collecting tomorrow's spoons

Hi, I'm Rey, a polyamorous, postfurry, queer as fuck, non-binary trans catgirl and/or foxenby (... I think?).

I am an engineer, the sort who makes embedded hardware do cool things. I was the founder of vulpine.club. I like glowy dance, big bass, and hot enbies.

I drive Lezbaru, a '09 Outback. We've been through some shit together.

I am currently learning to live with #fibromyalgia (diagnosis pending), and I use #cannabis and #shitposting to make it through each day.

I am in #Rochester normally, #Boston regularly, #Seattle occasionally.

I am made of love. It's stronger than you.

Hey ,

This is my last message as an admin of vulpine.club.

It began as a weekend project, something cool to play with, to fill up time between jobs.

Then others showed up. And we became friends. And we became a community.

We built a decidedly queer space, atop radical acceptance and boundaries and consent and respect and love.

What started as a novelty became a safe space, a judgement-free place for self-exploration, for myself and for so many others.

This was the first community where I was Rey, 100% of the time. This was the first community where I've felt *normal* for being into the things I'm into, for loving folks like I do, for being _me_.

But at some point, it began to feel like v.c was usurping my identity. Being "Rey, the Vulpine Club admin" became awkward and uncomfortable. This isn't who I *am*... I am so much more.

I've also struggled with the conflict between having responsibility for the safety of this community, and being in personal intimate relationships with a substantial part of it.

So, I figure it's time to turn in my badge and pun, and leave things in the paws of the best admins, mods, and friends I could leave y'all with: Sariya and Clara.

I love you all. You are such beautiful and amazing critters. Thank you for being here with me <3

P.S. I'll still be around, you betcha

* Avoid immediately defending your privelege and work to dismantle if you're in the camp of equity and equality
*Don't start none and there won't be none 👊🏿

if anyone has any suggestions for doing shared data across multiple docker hosts, i beg you to share.

i've tried most of the "easy" things but it's all community edition shit that has almost no features or a lot of dumb restrictions

When you ban someone from your platform or ban their content for standing up to racists, transphobes, eugenics ass people, what you are saying is that:

1.) No, we don't want them to feel alienated. We care about their comfort.

2.) We don't want the dirty brown disabled queers thinking that we care about their safety

He trips 'cause it was set so low.

if there is an afterlife for programmers, i'll probably have to spend some time in purgatory to atone for that horrible UML EDSL I wrote that one time 😬

Full disclosure: the team used equipment from my employer (the bladeRF 2.0 micro, by Nuand), but I was not aware of this research before today, and I'm not posting on behalf of Nuand or anyone else.
