@avery I found another abandoned Mozilla project for your site! togetherjs.com/ seems to be unmaintained as of 2014… 🙂

I love that Helix bikes are finally wending their way into the wild! I'll be on my Brompton for 4-5 more years at least (as long as my health and luck in traffic hold out...) but I love the design of these things. It's been a very long path from original crowdfunding through many, many production delays, but they're here!!

(For the record, the irony that I’m posting this on the “social” media platform where I have the fewest followers is not lost on me.)

At someone else’s office Christmas party, watching two separate groups of people trying to do “the floss”, and it strikes me a) just how old I am 🙄, and b) how connections between people are so vital to maintaining social cohesion and individual happiness…

So I'm still trying to not post politics and news stuff here.

But fwiw, dear trans folks: I like you and think you're all cute.

What if Angry Birds was about Twitter all this time? 🤔

depressing thoughts 

I fucked something up a little while ago, and am finding it hard to stop focusing on it. 🙁 I mean, I think it’s fixable, but it’ll take some time.

But the worst part is that the person it affects now no longer trusts me. I thought our working relationship was strong enough to not be totally shattered by one (admittedly large) mistake, but I guess I was wrong, and now don’t know whether I should even try to repair the relationship or not…

Just revived an old account I made a year ago - follow @accessibility for developments in @Mastodon's journey to an inclusive web app

(N.B.: this isn't about CWs, or even Mastodon interactions. Just something that just happened.)

I really, really appreciate when people I trust take me aside and let me know that, despite good intentions, I've fucked up in words or tones or even asks.

It's gonna happen; it happens to everyone. I'm glad that I have friends whose hearts I know and who know mine, and together we can reach a deeper understanding when we have problems.

Choose life. Choose a motherboard. Choose an OS. Choose an ergonomic mouse. Choose a fucking big desk. Choose loud speakers, social media and chat protocols, clients, and platforms. Choose good snacks, low in trans fat, and good key switches. Choose a high-density SSD. Choose a good chassis. Choose your friends. Choose a gamer chair and comfortable pyjamas. Choose a keyboard from Newegg n-key rollover purchase in a range of fucking colours. Choose shitposting and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that chair watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing YouTube videos, stuffing fucking takeaways into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, weighing 600 pounds and not having seen the sun in 3 months. Choose your future.

Choose life.

But why would I want to do a thing like that?

Reading about Ownership and Stack-Only Data in The Programming Language book, and thought “A type can be either Copy or Drop-y”, and this is why I don’t write documentation for a living. 🙂
