Hello lovelies. I decided to move my fediverse existence to @nyoom because I need change now and then. Feel free to go follow me there!

The extent of my socialisation in surveillance tech is:

I thought about it for a moment and was amazed that pens don't log what you've written with them. Like. No way for someone who finds your pen to deduce your secrets from it! True freedom in a surprising place.

@maunzi the post-apocalyptic travelling sysadmin definitely needs a reliable horse!

Handling teachers shittyness, racism 

Like... I told him that because he said something sexist. And then he went on a pretty racist rant later about how food named certain slurs should never change its name because "words can't be racist" as long as you don't mean it that way.

And i didn't manage to say anything, partly because i knew he was trying to get a reaction out of me and I wasn't prepared to deal with that.

So now... uuuugh. Why don't the other people ever say anything? Why is it my job, making me feel like a failure?

Did two things today.

a) called a 7 segment display "7 LEDs in a trenchcoat", giving the correct answer to a teacher's question

b) told a teacher to stop making his disgusting jokes in a very confrontational way

The seventh annual international Gender Census 2020 is now open until 12th March!

smartsurvey.co.uk/s/gendercens

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

They're giving us the cutest trans colored wires here.

(Also very glad that today starts out so chill. Just some "yeah you know what LEDs are but let's go over them in detail". My sadcat brain likes.)

The state of intersex bodily autonomy today

@CoronaCoreanici @starkatt vowel shifts that happen due to memes... oh my god, can you imagine if romance vernaculars developed because people wouldn't stop mispronouncing words for fun

Oh my gosh y'all, today is the day my game, Snake People: A Game of Anticipatory Grief went up on Kickstarter as part of #ZineQuest! Threading unlocked.

kickstarter.com/projects/rutht

Sit down with your friends to craft a shared world of mortality and hope.

Snake People is a zine for a 6-scene storytelling game that takes maybe 45-90 minutes to play.

A playtester just described as "if you enjoy making things up and talking about heavy shit in a fun way with your friends, THIS HERE is for you."

another:

"playtested this, and it's really good at enabling players to feel and evoke genuine feeling in others. Highly recommend!"

The hardest part of my day is explaining capitalism to my cat when he wants to know why I have to stop patting his head and leave the house.
