Pinned toot

remember i mentioned yesterday that i was going to be posting more links and stuff? well, i'm now set up to do that with some regularity. even if i don't have the spoons, you all will still get a feed of cool, uplifting, interesting things to check out.

so as not to bombard folks with all this if they don't want them, i've hooked up a WP blog to ActivityPub so you can follow it here on the Fediverse (or grab the RSS if you're so inclined).

I’m unabashedly proud of something I’ve made. “Take On Me” is the best thing I’ve ever written.

It’s a story about love, grief, food, music, and the people who accept you exactly as you are.

And now it’s not just mine anymore, it’s yours, too.

i run 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 icosahedron.website/@pixelpape 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 neutral good paladin and i am friends with chaos. systems have their uses, but my moral code will always take precedence.

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 newsletter i send out monthly, and keep various trello boards full of curricula i design for myself.

details on all this stuff (and honestly much more!) are here:

Reminder to myself and others that fraidyc.at is a great way to sip from the sewage firehose we call Online rather than shove our face in it and guzzle like we're trying to win a bet.

getting back into the swing of things with a straightforward ticket.

set up a new dropdown style and am adjusting a few tests to match it.

my LSQ stuff is woefully behind but somehow i managed to take on 5 new staff members despite being half dead. go me!

👋 hi everyone.

i was seriously sick for 2 weeks. finally back on my feet. i'll start popping in here again now that i have some strength back.

hope you all are well!

so frustrating to find a PR for an issue on a library that would solve all your problems that's just waiting on conflict fixes.

Happy Ostara! Happy Spring Equinox!

may the coming of spring bring you all the renewal and energies you need at this time. 🌷

very very pleased that our group's Ostara ritual will be going virtual and we'll get a few folks who weren't going to make it if it had been in person.

:blobfoxfacepalm:​ i forgot to take the only qualifier off my tests. only one of my tests was running. that's why the coverage was off.

and that, my friends, is how you know it's time to sign off work for the day.

omg these tests! to be fair, i caught two big bugs while writing them but omfg that was hard.

also, i'm now getting some kinda weird false coverage errors. one of the lines "uncovered" is an import statement. :blobupsidedown:

Tor's free ebook of the month is John Scalzi's Redshirts.

Requires email registration, and says for US and Canada only (you tell them when you select with a drop down, and an option for "other"?)

Ever since we went to see "Once Were Brothers" at a local theater, I've been trying to get some words do

happily puttering around on my windows partition updating my game libraries. i don't really have time to dig in and play anything, but i feel like i'm playing by proxy or something.

Howdy! I'm putting together a new page for the selfcare.tech site for remote workers. If you have a good resource or two to share, please reply with it here, or submit a pull request to the project: github.com/jenniferlynparsons/
