Immediately following the taking of these pictures, Grey dumped an entire box of mini wheats on the floor. A fair trade.

I want to get into , and looking to start out with the Helios 44-2.

The temptation of an at home IPL despite being black and knowing it probably won’t work.

I spent so much on this Steam sale filling out my catalog of stuff to play on my Steam Deck. Really enjoying the experience, but god damn does the Deck make me work to make me love it.

Product development co-opted user advocacy to mean creating things good for the service. We see increased engagement as signals of want when they are just signals of engagement.

@simon ActivityPub is much, much more interesting to me than Mastadon on its own.

Took some portraits the other day because at 13 months in at HRT, my face changed enough to not look like me the last time I took headshots at around 6 months in. It’s subtle, but it’s so impactful.

Grey got super into this music video Good Times / Problemz by Jungle. Now he keeps trying to mimic the choreography as best a 19 month old can.

Never really got into trying to make music/media consumption into a social thing, product wise. Like, someone keeps trying to make variations of the live DJ product (I worked on one) and it falls flat on its face. I think people aren’t really that into live music discovery like that compare to being able to curate at least the type of music they’ll be getting, like picking a station, playlist, artist, etc.

Planning a fun day off work and doing chores and errands instead, because I’m a parent.

Really enjoying my Steam Deck. It’s kind of perfect for me, the person who plays a bunch of indie games and years old AAA titles.

Deleted the other site’s app on my devices. I don’t want to go back to 2016-2020 Twitter, especially with the platform actively antagonizing its users like it is under new management. I hope others follow suit.

man, things really just keep happening, don’t they

Everyone wants to plan meetups on the days I get laser on my face. I'm going to be a sunburnt glazed donut on that day, so I'll have to pass.

It’s a cold take, but it sure is tiring just how pathologized and medicalized being trans is. Keeping up with appointments, needing people to sign off on shit that you only need sign off for because you’re trans, timing meds refills and keeping track of shortages, etc.

I don't get NJT Bus routes, so I want to make a dynamic system diagram so I can. Already got the NJT API creds, just need the time to do some exploration.

That said, not really crazy about some of the data updating being manual. There's an email that goes out when the GTFS data is changed, as opposed to like, an endpoint you could just periodically ping against.

Twitter Blue 

My non-binary ass when I show up at this Differences Between Men & Women debate and mixer Meetup just emailed me about.

This whole standalone Mastodon instance thing has not been cheap, and we’ll see how long I keep it up depending on the month to month costs. Still, this is one of the more chiller socials that I’ve got going right now.

My Mac Mini is now officially dead and so I have to PC to game with. Thinking to go either with a Steam Deck or some other mini PC that I can use my eGPU with. I’m pretty casual, so either would probably work out.
