I can't be on sunbeam anymore, and my other weirder.earth account doesn't feel right. I think this is sustainable.

It being the compilation and FFI, we now have two others in the team who have an okay knowledge of Rust, and quite a few better at maths than I am

Like it ain't complex, but I wrote out mutual information as a Rust function so that I could use it in a work R package.

And it works! And now people working on the project compile Rust, but without any real need to know how it works. (It was in C before, but the FFI to Rust is fairly okay)

Converting maths to code still feels like abstract witchcraft and I'm so damn proud whenever I can do it

So people in my team at work wanted to learn , and it turns out a lot of them learn through the exercise thing.

I made a mini-repo I'm going to be adding to over the next few weeks (gitlab.com/EdenHyacinth/ferrou) - If anyone has any ideas for mini examples I can add I'd love to hear it.

Honestly I just cried afterwards. Like the level of stress involved in being publicly non-binary at work, and then getting a "you should do more" from a cis person is just, yikes.

The other day someone told me that I wasn't doing enough as a enby at work, that I should be more overt about being non-binary.

"You should use whatever bathroom you want! I'd back you up!"

Yeah thanks mate. You wanna field the reactions too? Because this would go way beyond HR.

I feel like I'd rather not be trans any more.

I'm having a bad few days, and being trans makes it so much worse.

Weirder earth looks *sick* on the new update.

pride month at work, or "explaining to the LGB why we don't support stonewall"

My company made a speech a few months ago about equality.

In summary "When we started, we had to hire the best people for the job. After we became successful, we tried to become diverse"

Without a hint of irony. Its shocking people can exist like that.

In a few months, that's all this account will post. photos of me and a dog.

I might even smile. I might even be able to breathe without coughing. Holy shit.

I can.. get a dog. Like legit, allowed in the rent.

the contract is signed.

I will be in Scotland next month. :)
