hm, haven't been here in a while, think I need to test the waters

fuck transphobes
fuck terves
fuck conservatives
go stick your heads in rotting pumpkins

finally got my one electronics project of 2018 ordered. wanted to do something a bit old-fashioned and firmwareless so I'm not taking my job home. it's a headphone amplifier for my favorite set, which is a bit too low-impedance for a lot of stuff to drive well. high part count but not all that overbuilt really — design method was to build using modern blocks, then translate into discretes. it's a dual HW rectifier, two linear regs, then 2x(opamp, buffer) with no global feedback

well I can totally replace some of these resistors, but I sure hope I don't have to figure out how this actually works

it's only october and already this beautiful and I am so here for this

i want a tattoo of a trans-flag-colored epilator with the words "beauty is pain"

transphobia, politics 

before this ridiculous excuse for a government decides the constitution says nothing about indulging the whims of mentally ill soyboys like me, at least

definitely time to get this name-and-gender-marker-change machine in motion.

I resent that my computer, the most complex and powerful machine I'll likely ever use, is turned on by some pissant little five-cent plastic button like it's a shitty VCR from the 90's. I want a massive ornate copper knife switch, as long as my forearm, with the lower position hand-lettered "HALT" and the engaged position labelled "COMPUTE." When I go to use my computer, I want it to know I MEAN it.

folks i'm gonna be real honest with you...

i NEED this Mastodon thing to take off because i just ordered 80,000 of these bumper stickers from the printer, and i can't afford to be caught holdin' my junk if this whole thing fizzles.

please consider my personal commercial interests when choosing a social media platform, thk u!

octonary realization: so far _all_ of these have been in my browser's spellcheck dictionary, despite the fact that past quinary none of them have been used since 1895

quinary realization: I had to look up what came after quaternary

quaternary realization: still feel a strong draw to this aesthetic, and this draw is very much surrounded by tinges of nostalgia. which is always a touchy topic for me as I'm pretty repulsed by most of my past

Show thread

tertiary realization: my decision that this is something worth mentioning here is the result of a drunken pointless wikipedia rabbit hole excursion and really isn't important in any way

sudden realization: my draw to goth aesthetics in the past, starting around high school, was very very very much tied to their embrace of androgyny and sometimes outright femininity in men

secondary realization: my admiration thereof mostly from a distance was very much tied to my discomfort with my own gender expression

I look like I let a 6-year-old do them. welp, time for some cleanup
