annoys me how in the mainstream, algorithmic art is basically associated with NFTs nowadays

apparently one of my college friends from the same faculty (or department if you're American, I guess) is a Scrabble champ. kind of fascinated because even Bridge managed to be more popular than Scrabble over here.

the cool thing about having everything be online due to the pandemic is getting to witness how local culture "leaks" into online mediums and how new customs, practices, etc get born.

example: it's now rude (ish) to not turn on your camera as the audience of online conferences (even if it's a seminar and intended to be one-way). two years ago i don't think societal customs like this exist, at least in an Indonesian context. culture!

mh (-), tw suicide 

i'm not built to witness one, never mind TWO suicide attempts in my life

implied transphobia 

ugh not this kind of bathroom discourse passing past me again while i was browsing ................... how come these people are more scared of the *gasps* transwomen than, SAY, the cishet men

i've always thought myself as able-bodied but today i reflected that 1) i have a balance disorder, 2) which causes me to ... fall around a lot and occasionally just ... struggle, and 3) as an effect i am particularly affected by the accessibility of ... places. while technically i am still able-bodied (my disorder isn't that debilitating) perhaps i'm not as able-bodied as i used to think.

it's not just english fanfiction, is what i'm most excited about; you see it a lot for indonesian fanfiction, as well. it's the most "mainstream" instance of fedi i've ever seen.

the instance of fedi i see most often in mainstream-ish spaces, i think, is write . as, interestingly. often used for fanfiction.

kind of scary and nice how easy moving around my money is. got a bill for a project component i ordered just as i was leaving class, opened the banking app while i was walking and right before i stepped out of the campus the money's already all sent lol.

suicide 

crying and he's just going to keep telling me he's okay when he obviously isn't if he knew ... but it isn't like he knew? lowkey feel bad for crying but if a friend attempting suicide isn't enough of a justification to cry then what is

suicide 

friend attempted it, thank god he was saved in the emergency unit and is now willing to get professional help, but also god i don't think i will be all right the rest of this week

terfs 

they really get offended by everything don't they

Is there a website/community of some sort where I can find localizations (or at least check whether a particular localization exists) of style guides such as Python's PEP8?

Teaching stuff about Python for work right now and they wanted me to mention PEP8 a bit ... Checked and there does not seem to be an Indonesian translation for it, unless I seem to be missing something. If there's no localization yet I'll have to do it myself, but it wouldn't be funny if it turns out there has been a localization all along.

ph (-), mention of amputation 

my entire arm hurts (nobody tells you bursitis gives you This Much Suffering ... i've never wanted to cry from physical pain before but now i do) and i lowkey want to chop the whole thing off to get rid of the pain except if i don't take care of this thing personally i might do, actually, have to have the entire arm chopped off

cryptobros at it again 

the best bad crypto take i saw today is that nfts are a conspiracy made to distract people away from the Good and Pureness of bitcoin & other cryptocurrencies, using the strategy of hurting what people Care About, which is art

fandoms are so weird, for example the javascript fandom

saddle points aren't real they can't hurt you

horrible linux pun 

Sure, you can put Arch's and Fedora's package managers side by side and argue back and forth about which one is better. I just don't think that's an apt comparison

It's incredibly hot and sexy to do the interesting parts of a project and then give up
