the synth dragon decides your keyboard has gotten more than its fair ration of finger pettings for the day and plonks their snout in its way
you give them a cute smile and pretend to type on their head
that smile melts into an astounded jaw drop when you notice code is still being written into your editor
it looks way better than anything you could've done yourself
it's also fully documented
they close their eyes with a lil toothy smirk while you focus all your attention on them
... Changing my clothes is good when a whole shower is impossible. Standing on the porch for a few minutes is worth it after being the house for three straight days because I don't have the energy to go anywhere.
Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly... because doing it poorly is better than not doing it. (3/3)
redheadhatchet: One of my college professors used to say "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly." I didn't understand that for years because I didn't do anything poorly, I couldn't do anything poorly, I had to Do Everything Perfectly.
But brushing your teeth for 30 seconds is better than not brushing them at all when that 2 minutes seems exhausting. Doing ten minutes of yoga is better than 10 minutes of sitting when 30 minutes of cardio sounds impossible... (2/?)

bananonbinary: one of the hardest things to learn as a depressed former Gifted Kid(TM) is that half-assed is better than nothing. tkae the 50%, 40%, even 20% job. scrubbing your face is better than not taking a shower at all. picking up your clothes is better than never cleaning. nibbling on some bread is better than starving.
DO THINGS HALFWAY. NOW YOU'RE 100% BETTER OFF THAN YOU WERE BEFORE. (1/?)
it's time to play wheel of fortune

mastodon fork (boosts appreciated) Show more
hey all, I'm working on figuring out logistics for the mastodon fork and I'm making lists of:
1. existing forks which already have features implemented (does your instance have non-standard features you like? let us know!)
2. outstanding feature requests on the upstream repo that need to be addressed
3. any minor changes you've made to your instance which are worth including (CSS changes, etc.)
also feel free to @ me with any suggestions, etc.
YouTube’s algorithm sent me this gem of a channel this morning: Nybbles and Bytes. It’s one of those PBS-style retro computing shows like Explaining Computers except for two very important differences:
1. The focus is on low level software programming on retro computers
2. The host is a trans femme
This is literally new new favorite channel and I hope anyone interested gives her a subscription because support our family!
Long - Call for us Fediverse denizens to start making TV shows Show more
Hey Town and Greater fediverse,
I'd like to talk about TV.
I want to see us producing independent television programming.
Talk shows, fiction, sports (even if it's just the local little league or school league), news.
I want to see us making things to entertain one another.
I want to help create and spread these things.
I want to see us sharing tips and tricks, intro bumpers, animations (2D and 3D), music.
(You know how people sell video game assets on itchi.io? Why can't we do the same kind of thing with TV show assets and services? CC-BY-SA that stuff, and share your source files!)
There is no reason we couldn't have something as well produced as, say, The Computer Chronicles ( https://archive.org/details/ModemsBu1985 ) with a minimum of effort.
(well, there's one reason. Gary Kildall isn't with us anymore, and his insight and vision is sorely missed.)

You're Not Alone
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy IX is a game about friendship and supporting people through hard times. The player character, Zidane, has been a source of constant optimism and positivity the whole game, helping all of the other characters through their own struggles with identity and meaning.
And that makes it hit that much harder when Zidane is told that he was created specifically to destroy the world. He doesn't know how to process this, and just shuts down, pushing people away.
And his friends come to his aid to help him through it regardless.
Final Fantasy IX is a game that teaches important lessons, one of the most important of which is simply
You're Not Alone.
Here's the one we managed to get through our telescope with my phone. Taken at totality.
Not sure how to boost this more. But let's get this inf ront of the faces of those 922 patrons, whom are paying for supporting and running Mastodon (which should include the moderation team right?)
"Reimbursement for the mastodon.social mod team"
It is time to get the main (and Only truth be told) moderator of Mastodon.social a living wage. please.

in conclusion unconditionally support whatever weird shit children and young adults say about their identity except insofar as it directly harms other people because each generation gets new Identity Stuff that the previous generation can't understand and that's a lesson we should have learned by now
people finding ways to understand and conceptualize themselves is beautiful and amazing and it's not our place to tell them, especially those younger than us, that they aren't allowed to do it
