deadnaming 

What's the appropriate way to name an out trans person to someone who does not know about their transition? As in, how do you connect the "person they know as <deadname>" with "person called <name>" without actually saying the deadname? Or is it acceptable to use the deadname to establish this connection (and then cease all use of it)?

(i suspect the answer is "ask the specific person", but, thoughts?)

Ugh, literally can't pay my power bill now.

Want to pay by credit? Get redirected to a payment site that no longer exists.

Want to pay by bank? Can't anymore, because i had set that up and their withdrawals didn't go through and now I'm blacklisted from paying my power bill via my bank even though it wasn't my fault and they didn't even *tell* me that my payments weren't going through (leading to a bill pileup).

Oh, also, after three weeks of "how tf does servo layout work" I can confidently say that the answer is "lol"

work/servo/rust/productivity 

Even though my official-title-that-i-never-use at work is Senior; I'm still kinda junior in these aspects. Arguably the most important ones.

Need to figure this shit out.

I kinda feel bad that I spent this long on one servo bug but now I understand things more and have motivation to fix additional bugs I uncovered.

Also my Rust PRs and RFC work and community-team work have made me really happy because they feel pretty rewarding.

This month has been a really fun mix of "figure out how tf servo layout works" and "do random rust things I feel motivated to do" and I think that's been nice.

Mixing "hard problem" with "fun projects involving communication or casual coding in a familiar codebase" makes me productive at both imo.

thought experiment: git repo of theseus

- fork a project under license A
- new commits licensed under A, but all contributors of new commits agree to relicense under B if some event happens
- entire codebase is eventually replaced with commits under that agreement
- can you switch to license B? (is there copyrightable content that remains under license A?)

(I am not a lawyer and neither are you)

Today was productive. Got a lot of positive feedback on my plans for improving Gecko's process model this year.

Now I just need to get started on the work.

GNU Project guidelines recommend interactive applications have an about box that displays the GPLv3, but I found that a bit boring sdfn-01.ninjawedding.org/media

Is there a Mastodon app (android) that:

- supports multiple accounts
- is generally good
- supports CWs when tooting
- collapses favorite/boost events or allows you to filter notifications by mentions-only

(Alternatively, what app do y'all use and like?)

healthcare 

@manishearth turns out I have some weird hormone imbalances which contribute to it being impossible for me to improve my fitness. The pills to fix that are over the counter here but in the states they aren't and I'll either have to go through a Process to get a prescription or just buy a million here and take them with me. everything is just so broken in the US.

healthcare 

today I got a bunch of tests done in Mumbai that were really hard to make happen in the states, and would probably have been expensive even with my Good Insurance. It occurs to me that it was probably cheaper for me to come here and do these tests than do them in the states (I am here just to visit, but might as well make use of a non broken healthcare system whilst here)

So "Mمنشh" is an interesting nested ambigram of my name.

I.e. it kinda looks like my name in cursive-ish English going forward, and it contains my name in Arabic going backwards.

I think if I stylize this correctly I could get something that looks pretty neat and more clearly looks like my name (both ways)
