#introductions time I guess!
hello! I'm a 23 year old dragoness/woman who lives in Philadelphia since december of 2015. from Portland, OR
I do nerdy stuff like programming in erlang and python
pansexual leaning lesbian
pantheist, I try to make it to a unitarian universalist church on sundays
politics georgist but I rarely talk about it
I have bipolar disorder type 1, and I try to be uplifting for others' sake
I rawr a lot!
and that's about it, feel free to listen/follow/smeerp me!
I think I've decided I'm going back to school for psychiatry. First step is gonna be finishing up my associate's at the local community college though
finally got real internet, woo! and it's gigabip! or well 940/480, but eh, more than enough for anything I'd need or want :P
waiting for art and I'm gonna EXPLODE from impatience
added thread tags to my forum software, woo, another point for usability!
finally got a job! I'm a Real Programmer™️ now!
working from home as a contractor and setting my own hours is a pretty sweet deal
I can't read "clitoris" without thinking of gilbert gottfried reading fifty shades
also I need to clean my mirror, rip
wearing a flannel and a wool coat, this is my aesthetic
upgraded my laptop with a SSD. everything's so much faster now!
one of these days I should probably try to learn proper OOP stuff so that I can use typescript without fumbling around so much
orrr I can just keep stubbornly throwing stuff against the wall until it kinda sorta works
you get one guess for what I'm gonna do
just wanted to share this paragraph I wrote for nanowrimo:
The toys on her floor mostly consisted of plastic bricks, which had the predictable effect of turning most of her room into a caltrop-ridden death trap. She, for her part, had a *system*. Which is to say, she had a path cleared that was just wide enough for her to walk from her door to her bed without subjecting herself to untold amounts of pain that any potential visitors would most likely experience. The rest of her room was fair game, with the little bricks of pure agony scattered around like she was expecting a cavalry charge.
been getting some nice work done on my forum software project, ECF. it now uses Argon2id instead of PBKDF2 for password hashing, I added an optimization for posts, simplified some stuff, added thread view counting... not many new features but it's moving along
though as usual I have no idea what I want to work on next
I snuck in two stealth puns in the first paragraph, hell yeah
they're both bad and only one of them makes any real sense but whatever
when writing in the flow, it's easy to get lost in the endless expanse of words and clauses, drifting from one to the next as they spring forth like so many snowflakes in a frigid winter blizzard
but editing, I comb it over and over like a middle aged priest. check it all two or five times. every word honed to perfection, every sentence a finely tuned machine thrumming with power, every paragraph at its full potential. it's not any less artistic, but margins for both error and profit are slim
