And so she moved on. Sometimes for no better reason than because she didn't like the view from the coffee shop. This time it was just a feeling that the beach side town was too quiet in the winter, and she was looking for some work to stretch her arms. So she cashed her mincome, bought a train ticket up north and fell in with a brand new makerspace setting up in an old sawmill. It was freezing, but the first thing they built were small rooms inside the giant building that they could easily heat.

Programmer friends: Many of us have deeply-ingrained habits of making fun of whichever languages, tools, OSes, etc we don't personally use. Please don't. I highly recommend reading Aurynn Shaw's essay on "Contempt Culture", which I have to revisit myself periodically:

Also, the post-copyright stuff doesn't have any medical issues behind it, just in case anyone was worried ;) It's been a good year... Almost two.

This week I'm reading Raymond Chandler and feeling oddly like I missed my chance to be a hard-boiled detective because I just stopped drinking, instead of because ALL THE OTHER THINGS.

Reading ebooks always reminds me of the hospital. I've spent a lot of nights sitting by bedsides reading on this thing... Nearly every full price book on here has a medical story behind it.

A birdsite thread on writing Indigenous characters, bookmarked here for myself as much as anything -

I want a series of Fred Rogers for President campaign ads. The Cabinet is sitting in the President's briefing room, outlining today's crises and concluding with a plea: "Mr. President, what do we do?" Everyone turns to the head of the table where an old TV and VCR turn on, and as the CRT warms up the VCR fast-forwards to a clip from "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood" that covers exactly this situation. In one corner a general starts quietly weeping tears of joy, realizing that sharing is an option…

Went out walking last night and hit this, about 200m up the road. Yesterday was a windy day ;)

I've decided my default reaction to bullying will be "That's a very small minded way to look at the world."
Trying to figure out how to intervene in different kids disagreements...
But it also applies in general ;)

I once owned a car with power steering OR power brakes. You had to pick. If you tries to brake and turn at the same time it would stall.

Sometimes I miss having unecessary challenges in my life ;)

Took the train yesterday morning. That bumping looking ice sheet is the accessibility platform ;)

I like the federated timeline and I see why they did it that way... I've also found lots of people in the federated feed. But I also want a custom timeline of the full feeds of instances that just I pick. Hm. Not sure if that's a solveable UI problem or a larger structural problem.

Life closes a door,
smash the window in. Tell life
I’ll come and go as I want.
Tell life I have more bricks where
that came from, I’m not afraid
of things breaking, what I am saying
is that I am used to breaking and
you don’t scare me, I refuse
to sit in this house, waiting
for a door to open. Like a cat
I’ll shred the sofa and climb the
walls. I’ll ruin this house
and sleep on the balcony
under the stars.
