We're a system of a few queer people on a new, cozier home in the fediverse. We talk about the trifecta of queer, tech, and lewd stuff, but usually it's just whatever happens to be going on in our life (or the world) at the moment.

For now, we work as a software developer at a nonprofit in the US, but longer-term we'll probably end up as a maths teacher or professor in the UK.

This is a personal account, but follow requests are welcome.

If we add an emoji at the top of a post, it's usually to indicate who's speaking.

wish YouTube would understand that if I disable captions for a video with autocaptions that doesn't mean that I want to disable captions for all videos, including videos with actually good captions

"what if you had something called an 'options menu' where the user interacted with buttons to tell the computer what to do"

"no, no. that's too easy. surely machine learning must be involved"

if someone criticised Rube Goldberg i would simply flip a switch that activated a miniature train, pushing an egg into a series of tubes that lead to a wind-up car toy with a needle taped onto it, popping a nearby balloon which caused a small weight to fall on a button that starts a sowing machine which pulls on the fabric it's sowing, releasing seven small marbles that one by one fall into a bucket, weighing it down until the frying pan it's attached to falls from its shelf and bonks them on the head
