I talked to my new doctor today.
I walked out with a neuropharmaceutical scrip for anxiety/depression.
I am not expecting a miracle, and I know it takes time to find the right med/dose, but I am hopeful this will lead to quality of life changes that have thus far been elusive.
Tech-bro culture expands unless it is actively resisted.
And yet, the people most effective at resisting/countering tech-bro culture are ... people who present as tech-bros, but aren't.
So, MEN, if you don't want your workplace to turn into a tech-bro club, (or want it to be less of one), you have to stop letting the tech-bro miasma roll over you.
So you, enlightened, progressive men, yes, YOU, have to take the stand. Modulo your own health.
But THIS: bros won't listen to anyone but you.
Also, Dishonoured 2 suffers from one of the most annoying game design fails ever: spend the majority of the game teaching the player a reliable, useful set of mechanics, then take those tools away. Like Lucy and the football.
Of course the new mechanic is even harder to use with no kill / no detect. Of course.
Still playing Dishonoured 2. As usual for this series, going for the No Kill / No Detect trophy on hard mode.
I've been endlessly frustrated by the wonkiness of the drop take-down which sometimes works, sometimes works but results in a detection, and sometimes just leaves me plotzing on the floor next to whoever.
Also frustrated by not being able to takedown people sitting in chairs. Usually have to stand on the chair back undetected (!!!), jump, and then do a drop takedown. Usually works.

Anyway, Sungrazer 006: 2 hours of trancing & uplifting for your programming happiness. Stream it here and money goes to the artists, or so I'm told:
Fediverse, I have completed the startup->acquisition->burnout->sabbatical cycle and am now job hunting for the first time this millennium.
If you or someone you know needs a technical leader with a history of happy productive teams OR seeks a distributed systems server/network architect whose Ops skills spawned a successful startup running web sites that you, personally, have used, please see:
Boosts very welcome and appreciated.

I guess remember that being an extremely successful promoter of something doesn't mean one has any particular native logical intelligence. One can be very socially adept and still a functional moron. Especially if one has money. and/or social capital. I am just saying because it seems like Jack is not very bright. Or, that's his cover, and he's an incredibly convincing actor.
These are my piles of art I've finished that didn't sell so got stashed in folders. Small (A6) and medium (A5) on the left, large (20cm squares and A4) on the right. Both piles over an inch thick.
For $5 I'll send you a small, $7.50 medium, $10 large. You'll get a random one. They're all signed originals, all intricately detailed ink drawings. Price includes worldwide postage.

My favourite drawing from 2018, “Isolation”.
Originally I was planning to draw the Empty Chrysalis, but in the end it was too upsetting for me at the moment to do sth that boils down to “sometimes all the work and pain leads to nothing”. At least here there is the notion that opening up, while difficult, can be done.
2018 was hell for me. For better or for worse though, the universe doesn’t care and the only option is moving forward.
