So here's my updated old post from WT post.

I'm Lou, I'm ish (which is probably a post in itself) and a programming/tech witch. I'm also shivvi@octodon 's (though she doesn't post anymore) worst half.

I'll mostly be posting about and stuff.

Our internet is not sure if it's down at the moment. It's failed a line test by our ISP and we have no dial tone, however we appear to occasionally get a connection at about a 3rd of the speed it's supposed to be, weird!

Never underestimate the sheer adorableness of trans ladies and trans enbies being cute to each other on your timeline.

2019 is the year of the linux desktop in the internet zodiac

people born under the sign of the linux desktop are more likely to have issues with the status quo, try to do everything themselves, and believe in the impossible

My holiday project this year is a throttle for my joystick as I don't have a hotas. I'm currently working on a gearing mechanism to increase the resolution of the rotary encoder I'm using.

Since I've had a 3d printer I've learn't far more about engineering and design then I ever did at school (did study mechanical engineering at college sadly).

Saw-this-thought-of-Mastodon of the day: DOOMBA, a program to turn your Roomba's meanderings into a Doom map

Happy seasonal holiday of your choice everyone.

@shivvi has been leaking coins. I think she's been getting advice from a vending machine which said 'change comes from within'

here's your periodic reminder that "being trans" is simply not identifying consistently as the gender you were assigned at birth! it doesn't mean "transitioning", nor "taking hormones", nor "getting surgery". It doesn't even mean dressing differently! (though many trans people do several of these things!)

also! nonbinary folks are trans generally speaking! You can opt out of the trans label/community, but being nonbinary inherently meets the singular condition of being trans mentioned above!

I think drone sightings must be the new UFO's. One of the biggest airports in the UK was shut just before Christmas and the police have just admitted that there may not of even been anything else. +it was really winding and raining around the time they were sighted which aren't conditions most quad-copters are very controllable in.

Just had that moment where your playing re-entry (realistic space capsule simulator) and you do a retrograde burn in the wrong direction.
