Artemis' Blog

A blog on science, technology and politics, as well as possibly a few other things.

Invidious (Piped didn't work in between)

So, we set up Invidious now. Piped was too complex n stuff, and it needs JS, and it didn't work in between, same goes for ViewTube, so that's what we went with. More details below.

Service additions

Hey there, thought I'd write this one. Only one here who hasn't written anything yet, after all. It seems to get hard to get more creative titles with this sort of post, so that one's what we went with. Anyway.

Career choices

I have thought about this for a while now, and after collecting most of my considerations in a private chat with some other people, I realized I could as well make a blog post of this…

Stop Ecocide

Normally, neither I nor Laura deal with political issues, given Tanith and FantasyCookie17 are occupied with these enough for one body. However, this time, the latter was, in her own words, "too lazy to write this", and the former felt like I would deliver a better performance at explaining the content of this. This, along with the fact that I have not written much on this blog at all, lead to me writing this post today.

Systemic gatekeeping

So, this's basically a continuation of my last post, so maybe read that one first ‒ or don't, this one's less sensitive or whatever.

Major overhaul

I've talked about wanting to write this article in Bloggers Gathering for quite a while now, so, here it is. While it was clear I wanted to make some changes, as also stated in a previous post on here, some of the changes I made went differently than planned, while others were abolished in favour of an alternative.

Petition for trans rights in Germany

Just wanted to let you all know there was this petition here, basically aiming to abolish the outdated TSG (Transsexuellengesetz, "transsexual law") in favour of a more modern self-determination law. As currently, legal name and gender changes are extremely expensive (1000€ and above due to the requirement of two evaluations by mental health professionals) and time-intensive (about a year), this would be a huge step forward. You can also sign if you are not a German citizen, in which case, a translator like DeepL might help you to determine what exactly you are signing.

Gatekeeping kills

You may have already seen me on the last post. I'm Tanith, and if you're not up to speed on the entire thematic of F. being plural, check this out. Now, for the part of this post after this paragraph, I'll have to issue a big content warning. I am absolutely pissed (American English, mind you), and this post will reflect both that as well as mention serious mental health stuff. I'm also known for putting humour into all sorts of stuff, which may be considered inappropriate in this context.

Domain

I bought the domain artemislena.eu in a sale at netcup. My old domains fantasycookie17.cf and fantasycookie17.onederfultech.com still redirect here. My Matrix server will move to the new domain, more on that below.
