This won't stop randos, because rando reply-people don't check profiles, but let me be clear just in case. If you don't know me, don't data dump on me. I'm happy you're excited about whatever it is but check in with me first to make sure it's appropriate for the conversation and that I'm willing to deep-dive with you.

Also, my toots are not thesis and will not contain the full research or bibliography for my remarks. If that's something you need, block me now and save us all the drama.

Further, having mutuals in common does not create a relationship or understanding between us.

This is my week. It's most of my weeks, honestly, but particularly this one.

"One simple thing Crawford suggests is learning how to do stuff. Learning a craft [...] immediately puts us within particular limits and at the feet of those who have already mastered it. It requires humility, but, at the same time, builds genuine competence. It can help remediate narcissism by rebalancing our relationship to ourselves. In the process of submitting to discipline and focusing our attention on a craft, we find ourselves neither omnipotent nor helpless, but somewhere in between. We’re dependent beings with feeble bodies and minds, prone to flailing about and to failure, but also each with unique sets of resources and abilities that can be cultivated with surprising rapidity under the right conditions, and that can help us to regularly overcome quite serious obstacles. We are, in a word, crafty."

"the groundlessness of human action doesn’t imply that human beings are or should be completely autonomous. We’re born into a particular place and time, with particular psychological and physical attributions, and with particular people and traditions available to us that we can draw on or reject. These constraints are debilitating only if we see them as such, if we consider them as fetters from which the self should ideally be free. In reality, many rules and constraints are enabling: they are the conditions of freedom, not the barriers to it. They are the friction that allow us to move forward."

"I know this hasn't been a seamless narrative" is pretty much the tagline for this account.

That wasn't too bad. The protopasta managed to generate the biggest plug I've seen in my printers and the unload process managed to pull that plug up into the ptfe tube where it wedged. And it looks like 🤞 I didn't fuck anything up.

I tire of vendors using "chip shortage" as the excuse for hiking the price on tech adjacent products that don't have any fucking chips in them

I'm going to have to completely disassemble the hotend on my prusa because protopasta always fails in the worst possible way.

Again, I am shocked and dismayed that somehow "Star Trek: Lower Decks" is not porn.

Keyboard keymaps are a great demonstration of how differently some minds work from others.

This particular key map has the ability to change between qwerty, dvorak, and colemak at run time with a primary key on each layer.

I.... my brain does not work like that

They're rebuilding Dead Space for the PS5? Now I have a deadline for getting a PS5.

Who has the bots or whatever to make that happen?

A bad solder joint on an LED caused the "find out if your friends are undiagnosed epileptics!" strobe I posted yesterday. A bad diode caused a dropped key. Given that it was my first time soldering both, I did ok.

Dear mutuals who are on Mastodon.social:

Please, find a better instance. You wonderful few individuals are the only reason I haven't defedded from M.S due to its apparent lack of moderation.

I probably will be doing that anyway, I just don't know when I'll reach the "one straw too many" point.

a plea to mastodon.social users 

I strongly urge people who are on mastodon.social to find another instance, because the instance clearly is not being moderated the way it should be. A lot of the fediverse has had enough.

A lot of instances and individuals are blocking it because of a persistent fascist problem, one that other instance admins have to clean up, because they aren't doing their jobs at mastodon.social until someone mentions that "hey y'all aren't moderating anything anymore over there, are you?"

The fascists have figured out mastodon.social is too big to block and poorly moderated, so they're taking advantage of the situation.

It's a matter of time before admins have enough of this. Many already have.

I continue to maintain that if Beaks had a sideline as a rapper, she'd be Dessa

I think I fucked up some solder joints

The story of qwerty being designed to slow us down is myth and almost certainly false. However I do think all laptops are designed to kill our wrists and shoulders

and that's even without my regular key switches installed

holy shit. the iris split keyboard might work for me. I've not coded with it yet which is where the drama will be. but for regular typing, I'm doing ok. weirdness in a few spots due to the column stagger but way better than I expected.

all laptops should have tear off screens so I can still have the laptop and not fuck with its keyboard
