I just wanted to brighten your day
by letting you know
I just got a static shock
off the metallic lining of a crouton bag.
you're welcome.

Very in-depth social engineering Discord scam, PLEASE BOOST FOR VISIBILITY :boost_requested: 

I've never seen a Discord scam like this, and I almost fell for it. A hacked account will DM you with "bro idk if you're being impersonated or what but they exposed your dms in [INSERT SERVER HERE] with that girl and like what the fuck?? im sorry but i dont associate with those types of people so if you cant explain it then i will be blocking you." and immediately block you.

Upon joining the server, it'll ask you to verify with Wick bot, but it's a fake Wick bot that asks you to scan your Discord mobile app for QR code verification.

translation work going 

Do I know any translators looking for work? One of the agencies I work for, Contentoo, is expecting a high volume of translation work in the near future and they're looking for people.

I used to do French-English translation and still do very small jobs but the last time I did it for proper documents was pushing 20 years ago, so I'm sticking with the writing. Maybe if they were looking for Welsh-English I'd be tempted!

But if *you're* looking for translation work, you can go here and click "Sign up as a writer/translator":

Anyway, I'm still disappointed there's no actual storyline that culminates in Hitler-punching. I think we had to wait until B. J. Blazkowicz personally gunned Hitler down to get a proper fantasy plot leading to direct Hitlerian violence.

podcast I was listening to mentioned Japanese bands with weird names, so now I'm back on my Abington Boys School bullshit. (for the record, I was never off my School Food Punishment bullshit.)

I'm looking to talk to someone, ideally from an agency or small cooperative, who has switched to Nextcloud.

I'm interested in how people have things like Time Tracking and Deck configured for project/client work.

(please boost!)

Spent much of this evening reading through @samuteki 's blog and am finding the writing to be very engaging, maybe not the right word, magnetic seems more accurate, I'm very drawn to continue reading (and indeed I will do).

This article on racism in Japan is exceptionally well considered, organised and very carefully and intentionally explained. Very much worth a read.

It'd be a real pity if some hackers got into Crisis Pregnancy Centers and wiped their databases and records, since that data will very likely be used to prosecute people for seeking abortions and other repro healthcare. #BoostsWelcome #BoostsAppreciated
