i run http://lunastationquarterly.com, a speculative lit mag for women-identified authors.
i run https://selfcare.tech & its bots for those that need self care resources.
i do a LOT of other things (check the pins and links on my profile).
my alt is @pixelpaperyarn which i use for various writing talk and announcements.
i show my learning process, hopefully demystifying how the tech industry works. i chat about the ideas i have that i don't have time to manifest.
i'm a lawful good paladin, yet i am friends with chaos. lawful doesn't always mean "nice" nor does it mean following laws that break my moral code.
i believe in kindness and do my best to help when i can.
i do a LOT of things, many of which are meant to be helpful to other developers and some just because i love doing them.
i've designed 2 different card decks, have a couple newsletters i send out monthly, and keep various trello boards full of curricula i design for myself.
details on all this stuff (and more!) are here:
was able to swap my monitor over to the work machine easily enough. unlike my 2012, the work mpb is a 2015 and the graphics card is strong enough to display on my 27" monitor.
already have a separate keyboard and mouse/trackpad for that machine, too, so that's all good.
i could use an hdmi splitter though. i don't want to wear and tear more than needed.
looks like i'm coming off the bench at work.
it's been a true blessing (i don't say that lightly) to be able to spend a shit ton of time working on my skills. i've learned a ton in general and learned React from scratch.
i'm sad i'm not going to be working on my own project much anymore. i was about to make some big changes. i'm going to keep working on it, but that progress will slow down considerably.
on the flip side, i'm getting to do some work to improve accessibility, which is my total wheelhouse. following that up with some kind of front end work, which i think will be more React, so that's cool.
i'm taking a little time the next day or so to wrap up everything i can before project work begins.
test fixed! i added some mocked api stuff and got it working.
one of those times i'm pretty sure the fix is correct but i don't really understand why or how it's working.
non-tech folk wonder why things are always broken. it's simply because of stuff like this. i don't find it entirely acceptable that i don't understand the code i wrote, but i do know that there's a balance to be struck between digging into that knowledge and being able to move on with the next thing.
trying to pull my thoughts together on the “small mobile unit” version of community vs big sprawling social network version.
i feel like i have something to say about them and how they work but not sure of the point i’m trying to make other than simply sharing my experiences with both and presenting my thoughts.
Okay, people who are better at the tail end of Middle English, beginning of Modern English but (as Terry Pratchett might say), Before Theye Invented Spelling,
I want a title that looks old(e) but not inaccurate (no Thee Amish Market, thanks) that indicates the idea of
"Exercises for Learning Proper Workings"
wherein Workings is a modern word for "Putting a magical noun and verb together with some modifiers to make a magical effect."
