@unstuckdev I was just thinking the other day how much I miss Capt Jack Harkness
@wakest I'm listening to one on Heaven's Gate and one on NXIVM, and I feel like with both of them I want a book club-style discussion group to work out all the thoughts. Because yeah.
@jgarfink My problem with DPNs is that I always feel like I'm #knitting with a porcupine. I can never find a way to hold my work that doesn't have some needles poking me or getting in the way. I'm curious about the Addi FlexiFlips, though. Looks like ones not in use would just fold out of the way.
I was going to try them for a sock project, but I went all the way to the yarn store after calling to make sure they had them, and turns out Addi's sizes are non-standard, so they didn't. :/
@Linuxtjej Absolutely. Diagnosed at 41, wish I had been diagnosed before college. I was spiralling into depression b/c of low self worth due to failures and had a lot of anxiety. I'm so much better now. Even small things -- I would never use tools (calendar alerts, etc.) because I thought I shouldn't need them. Now I can give myself permission to use these crutches and it helps so much. Social interactions are easier with meds because I'm not constantly drifting off.

@lizardsquid I've heard people say that gonna is a legitimate word because it's used only in a particular context (to express the future tense). You wouldn't say "I'm gonna the store" instead of "I'm going to the store", for instance. Of course you could say "I'm gonna go to the store."
I'm all for this, personally.
@rrix @KitRedgrave@glitch.social I recently replaced the wallpapers on my desktops with NASA photos of Saturn, Mars landscapes, and landscapes from Saturn's moons. I LUV them but I only get to see them when I swipe my apps away to find a file I dropped on the desktop (which is rare because even then I usually just use a terminal).
@Virelai well let's just say it's one of those things I learned the hard way ;)
