Pinned toot

Hi, all! I finally got round to setting up my profile. Looking forward to toot (?) with you all!

I'm most online on evenings CEST and weekends.

In celebration of this event, I plan to donate 10000 CHF this weekend to a variety of causes.

I'll keep a log of where the money goes in, or link it from there.

Feel free to write down suggestions inline here or in the doc above if you are interested.

This bit of news tells me that 1. the transition wasn't been completely botched and 2. it's unlikely I will be fired this year, which seems great given that my job lets me have much greater positive impact through Effective Altruism and contributions to the open source community.

I was a bit fearful because in the last cycle I went back to a more technical role, and I've been dedicating more of my free time to the [[agora]] instead of to "catching up" at work (which I know is not great, but I did sometimes traditionally), so a decrease seemed likely.

Hi, all!

I just got my performance rating at work and it was a good one; I'm happy about that. I'll dump some thoughts on this event in this thread.

I feel like I'm perpetually behind on everything; this has been a constant in my life since ever.

What changes is the degree to which I'm happy with this, which usually correlates inversely with the degree with which I feel I affect others negatively with my being this way.

Chrome has done the same in the past, mind you.

It's like browsers don't really think keeping tabs around is a top priority, whereas I feel it is.

It's 2021 and I just had Firefox completely fail to restore my previous session *and* refuse to acknowledge it ever existed. I want to think it's due to one of my extensions and not something that happens to users out of the box?

These threads are always my loneliest but I love scripting

I struggled with copying pictures through buggy camera wifi interfaces for years, now I plug them (USB) and run this almost offensively simple script and it syncs + uploads to [[google photos]] every time.

I find it difficult to cope with non-deterministic interfaces.

My Sony camera exposes a 2MB drive through USB mass storage connections with this, I had no idea.

I put together a chilling place for [[Ocell]] under my standing desk

@galene interesting position (as expressed in!

Have you perhaps read [[fictional minds]]?

Worked all day in the end; needed to do that, it was the right time.

Next up: midnight yoga.

If you think today's bugs in computing terms are baroque, wait until the 2050s when old systems will be running on top of several extra levels of abstraction and compatibility layers.

I never go anywhere without this. a dermatologist recommend this to me back in 2010 and it solved all lip issues I had (severe dryness, cracking). Apply once, ideally twice daily.

I fear the more I speak, the less will others be likely to listen.

Sometimes I feel like I need to pour myself.
