2021.10.15 21:49 TryingMyHardestNot2 The “American Dream” is being LUCKY enough to sell your soul to work the rest of your life for crap pay that in the end is not worth it
I have a bachelors degree that has done nothing for me.
I have work experience that has done nothing for me.
All I have is hope that one day some company will value me enough that they’ll want to suck away my mental and physical well being so that I can have the faux impression that I am on the right path.
Tonight all I have is a bottle of wine and dreams the Proletariat will rise once more.
Fuck this world.

Thank you to the people on Civcraft Mumble who told me that they would appreciate me doing this day. I didn’t take down your names at the time, but I’m sure you know who you are.
Also, happy birthday to bodhidharma6!
Hello everyone. Today, April 2, 2014, is designated as World Autism Awareness Day by the United Nations. Like last time, this post is to promote more thoughtful discussion in the Civcraft community. The meaning behind this day is to, as the name implies, raise awareness about autism. Not only that, the day aims to reduce the stigma of autism and build support structures for those with autism. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has stated:
"World Autism Awareness Day is about more than generating understanding; it is a call to action. I urge all concerned to take part in fostering progress by supporting education programmes, employment opportunities and other measures that help realize our shared vision of a more inclusive world."
This post will be pretty brief compared to my last few posts (as the history of autism is comparatively brief compared to that of racial prejudice, and its rights movement is still developing), but I hope to provide a bit of a baseline, as well as to address the stigma against autistic people in the world.

What is Autism and the Autism Spectrum?
Autism is typically medically defined as a collection of neurodevelopmental “disorders”. They are identified by difficulties in social interaction, both verbal and non-verbal. This, of course, comes with its own extremes.
The autism spectrum, then, is basically the collection of all medical “disorders” considered to be autism. Indeed, all of the autism spectrum has been condensed into a single classification in the DSM-V. Sometimes you will hear autism spectrum “disorders” referred to as “pervasive developmental disorders”. The most famous of these is Asperger’s Syndrome, which is usually considered to be “high-functioning”, and in general is the type of autism most people are exposed to.
Recent studies point to autism largely developing during pregnancy, which implies that it likely isn’t due to environmental factors. The demographics of autistic people are largely uncertain. Cases of people in racialized groups, women, and other marginalized groups are said by the Center for Disease Control to be underreported.
A Very Very Brief History of Autism
Autism was initially medicalized in the 1940s by researchers (namely, Leo Kanner) in the United States, who used this to describe children with a tendency to be “withdrawn”. Hans Asperger coined Asperger’s Syndrome around the same time, describing something similar. The term’s origin, however, was from the 1910s, where it was associated with schizophrenia, and this association stuck with autism for some time.
Since autism has been identified by medical professionals, it has been misunderstood, and autistic individuals have been mistreated during treatment and by society. Early attempts at treatment of autism during the 1960s and 1970s can only be described as horrific (including shock treatment and the like). To some degree, such mistreatment of autistic individuals continues to this day, one example being through that link. To speak personally for a moment, I have also seen an autistic child being pulled by a leash. Certainly, misunderstanding of autistic individuals is still prevalent, as scientists are still trying to figure out the exact causes of autism.
As time as gone on however and criticism of the medical establishment has continued, perspectives among people have shifted to be more accommodating, with activists of all types fighting for educational and employment opportunities amongst other things, as well as basic human rights.
Is Autism Something to Fight or Something to Accept?
To this point, I have put the term “disorder” here in quotes, as some in the autistic community feel that autism should not be seen as something to be cured, but rather just a difference like any other (and as such shouldn’t be considered a “disorder”), while others disagree (to varying degrees). People who side with the former generally class all or some autistic people as being merely neuroatypical (with non-autistic people being neurotypical). This terminology has also been taken on by some people with other developmental disorders. This difference, and the degree it should be taken to, often defines differences in approach in the autism rights movement, which generally takes a more anti-cure tack.
Traditionally, autism activist organizations have come from a pro-cure perspective (such as Autism Speaks for example, who heads up the Light It Up Blue campaign for autism awareness). Anti-cure activists (such as the ASAN) approach autism activism more strongly from the perspective of accommodation and respect (though pro-cure activists do support education initiatives as well). This does not mean that anti-cure activists are against treatment all together (this, as implied earlier, comes in degrees), but rather call for the acceptance of difference and what is called neurodiversity, and wish to preserve a unique autistic culture. They feel that “curing” autism perspective lacks perspective and leads to more harm than good (see: the shock therapy earlier). They focus in on the elimination of discrimination and the stigma against autistic people, and emphasize self-advocacy by autistic people. While pro-cure organizations touch on eliminating stigma as well, anti-cure organizations focus on this more strongly.
The Stigma of Autism
Often, autism is stigmatized (here in the Korean community) and derided in our society, and autistic individuals are treated as somehow “lesser”, and often being an autistic child or being the parent of an autistic child can be difficult not only because of systematic neglect with regards to this issue, but because of personal values that people have. This can come in simple forms such as treating autism as an insult (as I have seen here on Civcraft), or at extremes saying that autistic people are of no use to society (the implication being that they should be euthanized). Needless to say, these are the sorts of attitudes that Ban Ki-moon seeks to address in his message. Activism, of course, is still very much at the stage of generating awareness of these problems and other institutional problems.
I hope everyone takes some time to become more aware about autism and the issues surrounding it today. Frankly, I have some awareness to gain myself. Consider this a short primer.
Real Life Questions
Have you or anyone else you know been affected by autism? Let us know in the comments, as we would love to hear more about it. Civcraft Questions
How do you feel about some individuals on Civcraft using “autistic” and similar terms as an insult?
Do you happen to know anyone on Civcraft who is on the autism spectrum? Feel free to talk about how great they are.
As this is an awareness day, I’d encourage you to go seek your own additional reading

I've seen some videos on youtube of people using EF-S lenses like the Sigma 18-35mm however I've never seen any Canon ones. I have a Canon 17-55mm f2.8 laying around and I was wondering if I could use it with a speedbooster.

2021.10.15 21:49 RoscoeDK Selv sagt op...hvad nu?
Jeg er medejer og direktør i en SME.
Det er gået bedre og bedre de sidste mange år rent øknonomisk, men mit arbejdsliv ctr. familie- og fritidsliv fungerer ikke.
Jeg vil nu træde ud og sige op. Sælge mine aktier. Det er der forståelse for hos ejerkredsen...vi er 3.
Men hvad så nu? Jeg har de sidste 17 år lavet alt, hvad man overhovedet kan som selvstændig i en mindre virksomhed med 15 medarbejdere. Er vel en sweitzerkniv af kompetencer...salg, indkøb, kontrakter, HR, markedsføring, IT, regnskaber, GDPR og en masse andre ting.
Jeg er uddannet indenfor offentlig administration og har været udsendt til Afghanistan.
Hvad dælen skal jeg lave? Jeg kan blive så længe jeg vil, men jeg holder hurtigst muligt...desværre helt til 1.april.
Gode forslag til et godt arbejde, hvor man ikke forventer 100 rejsedage og +50 timer. Løn er ikke vigtigt. Salg interesserer mig ikke synderligt.
Har selv set på noget ved SKAT ved Bandeenheden (øko krim i rocker- og bander). Det gad jeg sku godt være med til.

2021.10.15 21:49 versaceblues Storing arbitrary data on chain?
Hey so say I wanted to make an app with one use case. I want a wallet to be a source of encrypted information rather than index of money. For example but not limited to, maybe something like my SSN, credit card numbers, bank info, etc.
Is this possible with ethereum, L1/L2/Side-chain is okay as long as I don't lose any security?
Does there exist any documentation on how I would do something like this?
I don't care if writing the data takes gas, but I should be able to read the data freely as long as I have my private key.
Ive read that having exposing encrypted data publicly like this could be a security threat? Is this true, if so why is this true?

2021.10.15 21:49 -Zenith- LinkedIn summary. Any advice on how to not come across as a massive twat?
I'm looking to make a few moves soon and after speaking with a recruiter they asked me to spruce up the LinkedIn with emphasis on the summary part if possible.
I'm really not one for talking about or selling myself and I can see why it's important here but this feels fairly alien to me. Anything I've mustered up so far just feels cringey and egotistical.
I feel I can usually write quite well, especially on CS topics but when it's personal it just doesn't sit with me.
So, has anyone got any references/advice or articles on this? I've done a fair amount of digging but hopefully you lot can chime in.
My position is full stack dev and will be aiming to keep within that discipline so something with reference to that type of position would be ideal.

2021.10.15 21:49 emka-ace Fellow Europoors: How to do DRS without Interactive Brokers?
Im from Germany, hodling my low-xx shares with ING-Diba. Standard Depot, not margin stuff.
I would love to DRS my shares to Computershare, however I am not willing to go through the scum IB Broker.
Ive thought about creating a CS account, sell my shares, then buy again through CS. However this also puts me into an weird position - which I dont want to do either. And I dont have free cash to just buy more atm :(
Is there any way to get my shares to CS, without using any of the scum brokers who partook in fuckery.
Thanks in advance.

2021.10.15 21:49 cobalt-ambedo Filed & accepted 2/12 Finally got my tax refund and stimulus!
After calling the 1800-829-1040 line so many times and following the 1213224 steps but getting hanged up on due to high volume. I decided to just make an appointment at my nearest IRS office. Called the 844-545-5640 line and was prompted to wait for 20mins+ or call back option. I chose the call back option and automated voice said a 304 area code from west Virginia would call me back in 20 mins. Got the call back from IRS caller ID 1(304)707-9490. The lady gave me her name and id# and then asked why I wanted to make an appointment. Told her the case and she then asked my social security number to check on my case. I gave it to her and was put on hold but during that hold I was starting to have anxiety that I was getting scammed since I looked the number online and got some sketch feedbacks. But it worked! She even told me my interest amount. So maybe you'll have a better time getting through to a real human by calling to make an appointment for your IRS office instead. Also the 1(304)707-9490 number is legit.
