Pinned toot

Oh, I never pinned an !

Hi! I'm mostly here for conversations, reflections, and geekery around subjects that catch my fancy. Recently that orbits technology (esp , data services, networks), music (writ large), languages (esp ancient Greek), autism, and general silliness. Structural protection for the marginalized is close to my heart, but I've learned I need to engage gently to stay healthy. I try to keep shitposting to a minimum.

I co-administer .

I have spent so much time coding lately, both at work and at home. It feels really good. I need to remember to do that more.

It's hard to explain the absolute pervasiveness of top 40s radio in the 90s, the lifeline of college radio, and the complete cultural shock of mainstream entryism into alternative radio, all to someone who was 12 when Napster was first released.

subtitle: I love Python. But there are a couple corner cases where its module system indelicately obscures the difference between "This import is broken" and "Something this module imports is broken." And that has severely annoyed me more often in the last ~18 years than I care to count.

TFW you misspell "commands" as "commmands" and spend literally hours tracking down why everything is broken and the world is insane.

Le pronom «iel» a été ajoutée au dictionnaire standard de correction orthographique français. C’est très cool!

C’est un dictionnaire Hunspell, système de correction orthographique utilisé par un grand nombre de logiciels tels que Firefox, Thunderbird, LibreOffice, Blender, Notepad++, ou même Photoshop.

Finished burn prep. Now settling in for a nice hot bath where I can relax, shave my legs, and read up on *checks wikipedia header* the neighborhood axiomatization of topological spaces. aaaaahhhhhhh

Reminder to self, tho. My stuff is stored pretty well prepped, but I can always do more prep a couple weeks before the event. Then night before is mostly just relax. And optionally help less prepared friends.

Burn prep tonight. Going to tomorrow. Super looking forward to it. It'll probably be overwhelming af, but it's always 1000% worth it.
