Today, December 2nd, is International #Slavery Abolition Day.
In its classical sense, slavery today is a thing mostly of the past, but let's not forget about today's borderline-slavery cases, such as debt bondage, wage slavery and child labor that still abound around the globe. Those are still serious and must be addressed.
Just finished recording a new episode of #TuxJam I'll post when it's released 😀

- Lightweight (teddit frontpage: ~30 HTTP requests with ~270 KB of data downloaded vs. Reddit frontpage: ~190 requests with ~24 MB)
It's infuriating trying to shop local at times. I went into the local furniture shop today and asked them to order in a specific model of cabinet. Response: "No", I asked if he could check as I wasn't in a major rush and was willing to wait, to which the caring salesman said "No". I then asked if he would even check if it was available, so again he responded "No".
This annoys me as I am keen to #ShopLocal but come up against this.
PS this wasn't a young person, it was the shop manager 🙄😤😡
Time for a #cupoftea
