"share your story as a female in STEM"

"I get called FEMALE by a bunch of STEMlords afraid to say WOMAN"

okay I'm sorry I'm irritated

Well, I need to add content and stuff to it, but OokTech now officially has liberapay and patreon and where you can support us (and robbie, because robbie is awesome).

o no. I really did open Cookie Clicker.

...And click it.

I haven't played this in years. *falls back in*

I learned very early in my career that the Pragmatic Programmer duo ( automated their book building process. That my first instance of "Oh, you can automate [almost] *anything*."

So now that I'm making roleplaying books in ConTeXt, I'm like, "Fuck yeah, automation." Jenkins should have no trouble with this. ๐Ÿ˜ค I'm probably write up a blog post on the nuts and bolts of it once I get it.

I'm really struggling to find garden planning tools that are suited to my scenario: primarily succulents/cacti; in containers; surfaces are the ground, two windowsills, and a small table. I can get one that represents a "patio" okay, but not one with a spread of plant sizes (pot sizes range from 3" to 12" or so).

I have a feeling I'm going to just end up with something in Google Drawing, but it'd be nice to have an inventory of pots, an inventory of plants, and the ability to mix and match.

So I tried not to be marketing-y at all about "The Majesty of Colors" here, but now I'm curious: is there anything folks wanted to know about Majesty or other (commercial) projects I work on that would have been in line with Masto culture? I'd love to talk more about how I spend all my time, but don't want to bring the "Brand" mentality here (even unintentionally).

This is a game that a friend of mine from college made and it is awesome. So go support indie game development. (This was made by @gregoryaveryweir @melissaaveryweir , and they are both awesome people)

'Haha lol' may be my new favorite thing. Angry? Haha lol. Laughing? Haha lol. Severely depressed? Haha lol. Only slept two hours last night? Haha lol.

Computer, how do I not be tired right now

Since I'm on newly this Stardew Valley tip, I really appreciated the timeliness and appropriateness (๐Ÿ˜ณ) of Waypoint's coverage of games like SV in and Friday's podcast ep:

I've been worried about optimizing my farm/objectives, due to experiences w/ Harvest Moon and my desire not to miss out on later stuff I don't even know exists. I'm just entering my first summer with a coop and the beginning of the orchard, and am starting to relax a bit.

So... I just started playing Stardew Valley, and I'm already excited for there being multiplayer soon:

I managed to sleep, and woke up to the world still turning. No flurry of emails from folks in other timezones saying "everything is broken and your game is bad even though i haven't played it!" (We got the opposite from someone, which is very, very nice. ๐Ÿ˜ณ)

OMG, why is this PR stuff so stressful for me? ๐Ÿ’†

Emails sent, computer turned off, morning prep done. Now let's see if I can sleep. ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜ฑ
