oh, hello there.

intro

tl;dr - i'm a #queer, #pagan, #autistic programmer from my beloved NJ. i write #fiction & #essays, play #videogames & #read. i like #tea, #comicbooks, #oldtech & #music. i'm older than most of you.

most of my posts are self-indulgent ramblings about stuff that passes through my head and grumblings about technology. ymmv.

my alt is icosahedron.website/@pixelpape which i use for various writing talk and announcements.

my hub for finding me and my projects is paladin.space/

i enjoy showing 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.

projects

i do a LOT of things, many of which are meant to be helpful to others and some just because i love doing them.

i run lunastationquarterly.com, a speculative lit mag for women-identified authors.

i run selfcare.tech & its bots for those that need self care resources.

i've designed 2 different card decks, have a newsletter i send out semi-monthly, and keep various trello boards full of curricula i design for myself.

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

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.

wild how many adults said "don't worry so much" to me when I was a kid, but not a single one said "hey, you appear to have anxiety. I can help you with that"

i know what will make the day wrap up better. it’s time to read some fanfic.

right. my work code has gone wonky. the bots are not doing what they're supposed to. there's a mosquito in my office somewhere. and i need a damn shower and the dear ones called dibs.

i want a nap.

huh. well, #cbts doesn't seem to be working. @boodoo dunno if you're still around. any idea why?

i ended up leveraging cheapbotstootsweet.com/ and cheapbotsdonequick.com/ to get @selfcare and @lunastation 's bots back up and running.

i wanted to self host but tbh i just need something that WORKS right now.

i got my node bot running by setting up a new package.json and starting from scratch.

still getting cannot GET errors on the server, but i suspect that something to do with the configuration or routes. i do have it working locally.

anyone ever get one of these things running on cPanel? i'm so frustratingly close to nailing it!

the Dyntex keyboard i ordered a couple weeks ago finally came in. it's surprisingly exactly what i wanted. a little clicky, mecha-membrane board so i can save my beloved Dell (with a PS/2 connector!) from wearing out.

the only weirdness is it is unexpectedly a UK layout board so getting used to the enter key being a little further away will take some getting used to.

the tropical storm has started blowing through. yard has been battened down. i'm just hoping the power stays on. 🤞

time to get some $dayjob work done and stop being distracted by my bot situation.

this is one of those things i'll be glad to understand when i've got it fixed, but won't feel like i've really learned anything because it's so situational.

I am excited to share with you a confounding and captivating collection of arcane curiousities to add a spark of the strange and silly to your #TTRPG of choice.

prefer not to use amazon or other big service. i wonder if a cron job would get it done?

okay, i've got a small Tracery/Node-based app for @selfcare that i need to put somewhere live so i can ping it on a regular basis to trigger a post on botsin.space.

would love advice on a good free/super cheap place to put it. looking at hosting it myself, but oooh never done that before!

i'm open to ideas on alternate solutions, rewriting it so it works without needing a ping (no idea how hard that is) or any other options.

ahhhhhh. dammit:

"The gist of this is that we are now permanently banning use of pinging services (third-party or built on Glitch) to keep apps on Glitch awake"

so, no matter what i do, that ping isn't gonna work. guess i'll have a chance to try out my shared server's node application setup.

anyone know what to replace https://botsin.space/api/v1/ with to ping the api on botsin.space?

@selfcare is down until i get this sorted. :(

well, that was a monday. about as neutral as it gets. work was done. walks were taken. still up: baseball and dinner.

I forgot to post ahead of time but today is the full moon. Just fyi.
