A few pictures from yesterday (and sunrise this morning, thanks to an early wakeup call from tanker wake).

By "hate" I mean

ho hum, another day, another 'splainer *yawn*

I really hate how there are tech communities that claim to be "open and welcoming", while simultaneously bros will come out in droves to tell me how I'm doing things wrong without any significant context.

Posted an assembly question on Stack Overflow.

Got mansplained about how "the C compiler is better at making assembly than I am".

Fucker, I wouldn't have spent hours figuring out how to write assembly if the C compiler was generating what I needed. 🖕

I have a question about inline assembly, gcc, and AVR microcontrollers. Well... tangentially AVR.


Please excuse my while I *reboot* *my* *system* to unwedge the bluetooth driver.

2020 and rebooting like it's Windows 95.

This just in:

Bluetooth on Linux is still complete garbage.

Pulseaudio on Linux is still complete garbage.

I know, I know... I brought it upon myself by using Linux.

In this house, it's the very androgynous, non binary, "ew get that gender off of me" individual who keeps dressing high femme...

Although g++ was only preventing me from using simavr.

The *actual* bug was that the uart code I was including was allocating memory outside of the device memory range. I don't know if that was a bug in how I was using it or in how the code works.

Had a brainstorm. Went back and fixed the program.

Moral of the story: don't use g++ unless really necessary.

Another con: don't have any bare chips, and only my arduino nano has icsp headers.

Think maybe I'll order perfboard and header pins so I can build icsp backpacks for my trinkets and maybe the feathers. Not sure what I'll do about the flora given its weird form factor.

Spent some hours today soldering together a usbtiny isp programmer, then more hours trying to make it work.

Pros: no more need to figure out which parameters and how many goats I need to sacrifice to avrdude to talk to an arduino boot loader.

Cons: haven't figured out how to put a program on my nano. Without overwriting the boot loader. Which actually wouldn't matter too much to me if the programs ran, but I can't figure out what's wrong in my ten lives of code.

Hi, I've returned because I turn into an attention seeker when the world fucking sucks and I get depressed about it.

Went back to twitter because that's where I found it easiest to find out what was going on with the protests over the last few months.

And now regretting my life choices. Like, the only sanity there today is Emily and the two guys who make Hella Black Podcast.

I made a video illustrating a problem I'm having with a 74LS161A module while building Ben Eater's .

If you are electrically inclined, I would appreciate your opinion on the behavior that I'm seeing.


idea: first episode of a show we show a black witch re-casting an HRT spell.

"A year and a day, should be permanent now."

And then the show moves on. Not entirely ignoring that she's trans but not exclusively focusing on it either. Sometimes it matters more that she's a woman, sometimes that she's black, sometimes that she's trans, mostly that she's a witch.

Stories about our struggles are important but sometimes you just wanna see trans gals living their lives.

The Esperanto for 'Veneration' is 'Respektego.'

I wonder how many donations I can make today before my bank or Paypal flags my account for fraud.

Or the FBI comes down on my head.


People's Breakfast Oakland needs money for bail for 98 black protestors: twitter.com/PeoplesBreakOak

Also, Massachusetts Bail Fund: massbailfund.org

A few more weeks and I will have a new job and I will hopefully never have to touch this bullshit ever again.
