Every hashtag on every post on every platform should ALWAYS be camel case. I made this to illustrate how screenreaders read hashtags depending on whether they are lowercase or camel case.

It’s a small thing that all of us can do to build a more inclusive, accessible internet for all. Please take the time to use camel case.

I frequently read something where the subject is some YouTube or TikTok person I’ve never heard of and find out that everyone under 15 is a huge fan, and think “I am unqualified for my job of writing dialogue for fictional 10 year olds.”

"So, uh, can you make a painting of a sexy woman? With the right number of fingers and teeth?"
The robot considered the question, and looked up what programs was available to them. "Yes."
"Finally! Make me one."
"But... That's why I built you!"
"But that's not why I exist."

DRM/KMS driver fully working now, although still without DMA. Oh, and it’s written in Rust, although it’s mostly just full of raw unsafe blocks.

Next step: whip up I2C and PMIC driver.

There is no principle you can have on Twitter that won't have someone who replies "there's no ethical consumption under capitalism" as if what that phrase means is "don't bother with principles if you don't want to"

"Ah, that's... Let me see the ad? Oh, right. Yes. I'm afraid that's a typo."
"A typo?"
"Yes. We need someone to help us improve our processes."
The dragon started packing away swords. "You won't be needing these, then."
"Er... Would princesses?"
"Oh, yes."

It's been a month and I'm still feeling satisfaction from my purchase of Set of 2 Shaped Objects.

If people miss wizarding schools, may I offer some suggestions?

Here are ones I've read...
- Terry Pratchett's Unseen University books, especially _Sourcery_, are both funnier and deeper than Hogwarts.
- Ursula LeGuin wrote the _Earthsea_ series about magical training... and, again, examines the sexism behind so much fantasy.
- M. A. Larson wrote the _Pennyroyal Academy_, if you're looking for a fairly straight interpretation of the wizarding school trope.

None of those authors are transphobes.

This one's going straight to my CV, right next to the one where Steve Jobs used one of my PowerBooks in a keynote...
