An old acquaintance of mine, who has fought off bouts of cancer for the past 30 years, is showing herself out on her own terms (legal in her jurisdiction) tonight.
I'm processing this still.
This is someone who has always done things on her own terms out of necessity (they've been a programmer most of their life) and this ending is in keeping with that and I respect the choice.
But it's still a thing.
ZOMG! The Fediverse. It's like the Metaverse, only with less Metaverse and more queerness.
