Probably should post a new as there's a lot of people joing.
I'm Lou, I'm ish (which is probably a post in itself) and a programming/tech witch. I'm also shivvi@octodon 's worst half.

I'll mostly be posting about and stuff.

So what is exactly do they have in mind by 'heavy plant' when they have heavy plant crossing signs. Is it a triffid or maybe a large tree?

ADVENTURER 1: Yay, we killed the dragon!
ADVENTURER 2: Why does the dragon have a hoard of Blahaj?

Just discovered there's a city called London in Ohio.
Also it only has 10,000 people in it. I'll never complain about Ely not being a proper city again.
Though curiously it has more people in it than the City of London (at ~9k) due very few people actually living in the square mile and everyone travelling in to work.

Does the State of California believe everything causes cancer?
Is thinking about the time I had a graphics card with a warning label on it even though it would of passed the REACH directive so it could be sold in Europe.

If your a trans women and a evil villain do you throw your hench people into a tank of Blahaj if they fail at their mission?

In other news our bathroom light switch is now functional again.

The women in screwfix said my nose piercing looked really cute on me so feeling good about myself atm.

Maybe I should disable the TPM module on my desktop so Microsoft don't notify me everyday that I should upgrade to Windows 11.

Dreamt last night that I went to the US to see some trans friends I knew online who where recovering from lower surgery. Was one of the most wholesome dreams I've had in a long time.

Just made it to the bottom of the mine in Stardew!

Tried to turn on the screen wash on the way home and smoke started coming out the stearing wheel. Looks like I'll be phoning the garage tomorrow.

#accessibility post i found on tumblr:

some of you may've heard about that fancy "bionic reading" typefont thats supposed to be easier for #neurodivergent people to read (if you're unfamiliar, it bolds the first few letters of each word to make it easier to follow)

well guess what, its locked behind a $500 a month API to write in because fuck you!

introducing, Not Bionic Reading! it is literally just the bionic reading typefont but for free. god bless neocities

Is thinking about how small appliances will probably end up just being USB-C instead of using a 13A plug at some point.
Then I imagine the frustration when someone plugs in their new TV and finds out the power cord or socket doesn't support the right standards so it won't work.

The existence of domestic appliances implies the existence of wild appliances.

Resoldered it and hopefully it should be better than new.

The power button is broken on my laptop. Had the back off and it looks like an easy fix (it's bent off the solder pads) but still.

Think I'm going to chill out and play some Stardew Valley before I wind down for bed with a book later.
