I switched back to my Kinesis keyboard with cherry browns after a few years where I “upgraded” switches and caps several times, and I think all of those upgrades made things worse.

The cherry browns are so much easier to type on and hurt my hands less than all my “upgrades” :(

Introduce yourself with the wildest feedback you’ve ever received.

I’ll go first:

“Hi I’m Amy. I’m too ambitious 🤝”

Got my @playdate this weekend, which means I spent a few hours writing a demo in Rust!

I’m angry with Roe v Wade being overturned and removing guaranteed rights, but I’m even more angry at the states not stepping up to restore those rights.

Technical regret

is there a special name for the technical debt that results from the desire to use interesting technologies?

I found a way to print out the Slack threads (turns out there were several), so now I have 40+ pages to read.

Please send my AARP card to ...

I saw a 200+ message Slack thread I need to read for context, and the old person inside me thought "maybe I should print this out to read it"

I scrambled a hard drive and made MS-DOS 6.22 defragment it and recorded it.

I had to simulate the hard drive noises (which was fun). Maybe I'll try with a real hard drive next time.


Current status: writing a hard drive fragmenter so I can watch the DOS 6.22 defragmenter lose its mind.

I noticed the mastodon server I use hasn't been updated in a couple of years, so I'm thinking of switching. Any particularly cool ones going for tech (+ maybe lgbtqia+)?

Weekend plans

Pre-COVID: maybe a date, go to a party, go out to dinner, definitely go out to breakfast, …

Post-COVD: I might go get laundry detergent. Maybe.

I switched to an M1 laptop. Thoughts:

Apple finally decided that the best laptop does not mean the thinnest laptop

The 120 Hz display and new keyboard are amazing

Running amd64 Docker images is unreliable at best

A reality show where 13 cats move in to a house together where they have elaborate competitions and trials to determine who will be My Next Cat.

… but I’m the end I just move into the house and keep all of them.

I tried to hook up my ~2006 iPod Video to my car but the car can’t interface with its protocol — too old. And it turns out my car doesn’t have aux in?! I feel betrayed.

On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
