us nuclear weapons
Until, like, this year, the US nuclear launch system ran on floppy disks. No, not those floppies, floppier. Bigger. But not those ones either. It ran on 8 inch floppies.
I built a bot to make anti Trump toots (in response to some article that said mastodon would crumble for lack such toots) and I'm the only one who subscribes to it. Sometimes I think I should turn it off, but sometimes I just like seeing the toots I wrote for it.

A new twist on a classic stress dream
I dreamt I was at highschool - as a teacher! I had to teach 8 classes a day, each in a different subject. I had completely forgotten about my science class and hadn't shown up all year. A student stopped me in the hall to ask about tomorrow's field trip. How had I forgotten to plan it? Or show up to class? How had I not been fired?
The student told me they'd self-organised the class and never told anyone I was missing.
Trying to help
This dynamic does actually totally fuck up students and interfere with their studies and then they feel like they have to perform their trauma for every official-type person in the uni that they come across.
(All a lecturer needs to hear is "sorry, I was off sick, please let me know how I can quickly get caught up." Not that this is EVER communicated to the students in question.)
Trying to help
Donor: People with this particular kind of trauma often have trouble paying uni fees but have a lot to offer the world and I want to help them in memory of a loved one who had this same trauma and had a tough time at uni.
University: In 5000 words, please describe and re-live your trauma so we can determine if you're eligible for this scholarship.
It was indeed wayland bullshit.
The answer (for now) is #GreenRecorder
sudo add-apt-repository \ ppa:fossproject/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install green-recorder
This is some #wayland bullshit, isn''t it?
Now that I've got a working visualisation, I need to be able to record it.
#ffmpeg is recording weird static. #recordmydesktop is getting black. #vokoscreen is not happening. #OpenBroadcastStudio is crashing. If I press shift-contrl-alt-r, I get a lovely recording that stops after 30 seconds (I need 20 minutes).
Ah, Goodreads! I haven't logged in since Amazon bought it, but it was ahndy way to track what I'd read. I wonder what's new? Oh somebody has commented on one of my reviews! I wonder what stimulating commentary there might be?
It's a terf, wishing me dead. Lovely.
Well, that was a fun adventure in corporate social media for the day.
(I know this is a quotidian experience for many, but they rarely go after trans men, so I'm, you know, feeling it.)
