myspace was better than facebook for a lot of reasons but one of them was the two years i spent with a myspace profile that was nothing but a large picture of a duck with no accessible links or information

this account's pretty dead, idk why y'all keep following it

When I was a kid learning programming I was repeatedly told the computer will only do what I tell it to do.

you know, it’s pretty cool that i’m running part of my hormone system manually

just, like, screaming GIRL at my cells loud enough to drown out the part of my body saying BOY at them

now that all my accounts have Month of Halloween display names, it's definitely time to take some witchier selfies for my profile pics.

I will indent using tabs, to piss off the people who want me to use spaces. Then I will randomly replace 50% of the tabs with spaces, to piss off the rest of you

"This week people in our community confronted me about my lifetime of
not understanding emotions. My flippant attacks in emails have been
both unprofessional and uncalled for. Especially at times when I made
it personal. In my quest for a better patch, this made sense to me.
I know now this was not OK and I am truly sorry."

I have yet to find a GUI package manager frontend that doesn't feel slow and clunky, but that could just be because I love CLI package management so much that nothing graphical could ever top it. It was the first thing I learned to do in the command line when I got my first Raspberry Pi in 2012, and was such a paradigm shift from Windows XP software management that I think it will always occupy a special place in my heart.

whenever I see any title that references Dolphin Emulator, it takes me a second to remember that they aren't talking about Goat Simulator's long-awaited sequel

the pad dia is 250 µm and the thickness of the underlying copper layer is 70 µm. this sounds like you'd need a microscope but I just drilled the ViP out by eye (but very carefully) to get to the next copper layer (with a trace that's wider than the via dia) and voila it worked!

today I've torn off a pad from a 0.5 mm pitch 0.3 mm ball dia via-in-pad BGA footprint, then repaired it, then had it reballed and soldered, and it worked!
