looking for work, boost appreciated 

Hello Fedi can you get me hired?

I’m looking for #jobs, preferably as #contractor, in #translation. I do Chinese—English and vice versa.

I have experience in translating news articles, political opinion pieces, research papers, technical documentation, and poetry. While working for a news website, I also took on additional fact-checking as part of my job in translation.

I have no trouble tackling the most dense jargons of theoretical physics, nor massaging the rhyme and metre of a verse in order to evoke the original‘s aesthetics.

I believe strongly in cultural sensitivity and empathy in a translator’s work.

In addition to English, I’m also learning French, Russian, and Sanskrit for fun.

Under the tag #VerseThursday you can find some of my translations. Be warned, there are gay stuff.

I am currently employed full-time, but I am looking for additional sources of income and satisfaction.

DMs are ok, thanxx

Pixel 3a Thoughts Thread 

The ear speaker is used as a stereo speaker, huh. Nice for watching YouTube videos. I miss my dual front facing speakers from my Nexus 6P

I can't believe I let someone use this for like 2 years. It's fine most of the time but when you see it choke it's very noticeable

DO NOT FLY THE US FLAG UPSIDE DOWN AS A PROTEST. This isn't a respect thing, it's literally the universal symbol of emergency duress to signal that you need someone to check on you discreetly for emergency assistance. It means your life is in immediate danger and you need assistance *now*.

You *will* get neighbors, paramedics, firefighters, or worse, a cop, knocking on your door to check if you're OK if you do this.

First thoughts on the Pixel 3a since I need to get my OnePlus 6 fixed soon: I can see the GPU struggle with how much shit I throw at it. My Watch Later list on YouTube was chugging along as I scrolled past 600+ videos

I'm one of 15 people who enjoy Pepsi Nitro

How does one go about protesting in a US red state

The treatment for an ectopic pregnancy is abortion.

The treatment for a septic uterus is abortion.

The treatment for a miscarriage that your body won’t release is abortion.

If you can’t get those abortions, you die.

You. Die.

Still also a bit annoyed/disappointed/yearning for elementary to ween off GitHub-only support at and open it up to things like SourceHut or GitLab. Shoot, maybe even allowing for generic Git tag pulling. (

money (-) help needed 

I haven't been getting as many commissions as I've needed to pay for bills and the council has jacked my rent even higher. The next rent payment (~£110) is tomorrow and I am unable to pay it.

(I also have £200 in bills this month I haven't been able to pay either x.x)

If you have something you'd like to commission me to do, now would be a good time:

If not and you have some money to spare, you can donate:

What's your favourite book format?

Sometimes I forget that I don't have homing keys on my work board so I end up starting on the wrong keys in the home row and I don't know how I haven't fixed that in several months
