Hi, I'm Will! I'm a 19-year-old cute NB trans girl, and I wanna do cool things with games! ✨
Currently I'm a CS/game design student at DigiPen in Redmond. I don't do much besides that at the moment, but I have a few game/writing/music projects on the side that I should dive into one of these days!
I love hanging out on Mastodon and meeting folks with similar interests, or just listening to people talk about their passions! Come say hi, I love making friends c:
My tastes are all over the place, but I generally like games with good stories! I'm a sucker for meta because I'm a dork, but like, what other form of media can do shit like that?
I'm also fond of racing games. I'm a passive car nerd, and I enjoy driving (in real life as well as in games!). I'm not partial to a specific type of racer, as long as it gives me a nice sophisticated set of physics I can learn! (This applies beyond racing games, too!)
Uhhhhhhh after formatting the boot partition with ext3, I mounted it again, with `mount /boot/`. Which means it read fstab and tried to mount a nonexistent UUID as ext4.
And it succeeded? And the files from before appeared to be there? And then I installed GRUB?
I fixed it and am installing GRUB again now, but I hope this didn't somehow corrupt something unrelated...
Just nuked the boot partition of a live system and am reinstalling GRUB on it right now. That's how I roll, I guess.
UNICODE Character of the Day Show more
U+2E3A ⸺ TWO-EM DASH
U+2E3B ⸻ THREE-EM DASH
I frequently use two- or three-em–dashes, but used to write them using successive single-em–dashes (——/———). Then I discovered these characters exist!
They were added in Unicode 6.1 for compatibility with the Chicago Manual of Style, which recommends two-em–dashes for omitted material and three-em—dashes for repeated authors in a bibliography. See the proposal here: https://www.unicode.org/L2/L2010/10037r-longdashes.pdf
Trans neuro studies Show more
This is one hell of a fiery takedown of the current state of neurological studies into trans brains. As always, the journal articles quoted misgender all trans subjects and walk through some obviously backward or off-base notions about us.

The Supreme Court just killed employees' right to form class-action suits against their employers.
Fuck binding arbitration clauses. Fuck this shit.

She just called me
She sounded okay - a little awkward (we've never talked through voice before and I'm awkward), and maybe a little drowsy?
She doesn't know her timeline. She mostly complained that everything is boring and she's bored all the time.
I offered to send her a care package, which I will tomorrow. IF you have any suggestions for things she might like, send them to me. Also, if you have messages or notes to send, pass them along and I'll include them.
TIL that hwclock still supports BIOSes that are not Y2K compliant, for...some reason.
Ah, here's the original paper for the Petname Tool firefox extension (which is now defunct, but maybe should be resurrected): https://www.w3.org/2005/Security/usability-ws/papers/02-hp-petname/

I'd like a libre software Swype alternative.
Seize the means of prediction.
I wonder how many buses you could get on using a single King County Metro transfer.
