#FediPlants is the hashtag I'm using for my posts about what I'm doing with my/to my dear plants. I'll also use it to ask questions, post photos, etc. of my plants.
As a noob in these matters I often felt the need for a community where I could show my plants as they are rn without feeling shame for how they are, but also wanted tips on how to get them better. I still do.
That's what I want #FediPlants to be one day!
You are welcome to join!

SFFBookClub October poll
For this month I've been a little selfish, so instead of asking for nominations I've added two books that my brother sent me for my last birthday and I haven't got around to reading yet. I know next to nothing about either, though Blindsight does appear to be CC-licenced and downloadable from the author's site at https://www.rifters.com/real/Blindsight.htm
It’s that wonderful time of year where you get free online talks about inclusive design for a whole 24 hours courtesy of Inclusive Design 24.
In two days: 23rd September, don’t miss out!
uni shooting is mentioned but it's a news article about a professor
university professor insisted that shooter with a gun is not a cause to stop the lecture on literature, students should continue writing (on the floor, hiding under the tables) and this will be on exam. He brushed off someone's mom, then the dean and stopped only when russian SWAT knocked at the doors.

Money, school, medical, negative; advice and boosts welcome
Already I was in financial trouble from the start of the semester: I'm on "maximum time frame suspension" for my academic program and didn't qualify for student loans as a result, so I can only afford this month's rent and bills.
Meanwhile I'm going to need mobility aids that I doubt insurance will pay for, as I've a badly broken ankle.
Suggestions on how/where to raise funds to cover these costs, including 3 months' rent? @mutualaid
I am now accepting applications for pro bono work. If you are a person or organisation (registered or not) that is or works with/for marginalised identities, especially LGBTQ+, or black/anti-racist activism please get in contact with me. I cannot guarantee I have the expertise or time to help you, but you're always welcome to reach out so we can work something out together, even if you're not sure. See rest of the thread for things I might be able to help with: #probono #charity #software
I've reached out to a few of you individually, but maybe I should broadcast it a bit further.
The Engineering org at Moz is hiring (like crazy!) - if you're a software developer / engineer / infrastructure / ops / manager / anything - then we should chat!
I'd be thrilled to tell you why I love working at Moz and see if we have a position that might be exciting for you.
Also - don't be dismayed by the US/CA requirement. If you're in the UK / EU / LATAM let me know!
Could you plz help me out with my health?
It's that time of the month again!
I need 60 for my ADHD meds, 15 for my anti-depressive + 50 to manage a bunch of Multiple Sclerosis symptoms.
I also need physiotherapy for my back & knee, which are really bad. Each session is 30€.
If you could chip in, it'd be very welcome & appreciated! Any cent counts!
Thank you so much for helping!
Req help with physio
Each session costs 30€ at home, which is cheaper than getting it outside, because there's no expenses with transportation, so there's that, but I still can't afford them.
IF you can help, I'd be very grateful for anything you'd be willing to send my way. Every euro helps!
Boosts are very welcome, too!
Thank you very much for your help and for spreading the word, Fedi!
Req help with physio
I need physiotherapy again, which I haven't been having because I've been out of funds for them, and I've also been concentrating on asking for help with my decaying mental health instead.
Now that I have these pain levels again on excruciating levels I need help to get some physio sessions again, tho.
At home, because I'm still waiting to be called for my turn on the public (SNS) and also because due to my MS treatment I'm very high-risk for covid.
Req help with physio
In case you don't know me, I'm a disabled queer autistic ADHDer with Multiple Sclerosis and chronic pain, among other stuff (and this is reaaaally putting it shortly).
My back pain has been acting up more these last days, and now so are my knees, which I had been boasting that they've been okay for the last few weeks, but no, not now... they're hurting like hell again. :\
They never stopped hurting, really, but before I could just... take it, you know?
Pretty please, before requesting to follow me, if we never interacted a bunch before, send me a DM telling me why you wanna follow me, because otherwise I'll be taking a long long time to get back to that request, since I like to check out who exactly wants to follow me and why.
Mostly out of fatigue and backlog, as I usually can do that check up fast, but I also let it accumulate, so... Yeah, just lemme know, will ya?
Recently, and this is what I think is finally doing the trick, I repotted it and I spray it once a week with a mix of hydrogen peroxide and water (Google about it and you'll find info about that trick, it's also useful against the damn fungus gnats and other issues!).
I also use that mix for a mildew issue I'm having with a bromeliad my mom gave me that is in isolation rn in another part of the house.
So, this is my Monstera, everyone!
It's been a headache lately, taking care of her, because I found out she has brown spot. It prolly came with it from the nursery and it only came 'out' visible when the hot weather arrived. *sigh*
I've been trying to deal with it with DIY natural remedies at home and so far it's not spreading much, so I think it's working! Now, which of the methods? I dunno, I'm working on several fronts at the same time!
