A piece about the specific ways transphobes target trans men
This is excellent. They all repeat the same lines. It's important to challenge this when we see it.
today I've dabbled in dark arts. Not a curse, but definitely dark magic. I've enchanted a raspberry to keep memory of some wireless spellcasters around me and next I will create a fetish that will indicate when I've met someone before. The goal is to explore this additional sense, and to see how many people I cross paths with again and again.
embedded programming, details
I tried to keep the mapping of pin<->midi_note in PROGMEM because it looked like a good idea and some code I was using was doing that as well. however, the original code was using multiple mappings, which i didn't need and so I just deleted most of the code, including the correct loading of the mapping from PROGMEM. which gave me random crap instead of reading from the correct pins.
spent a couple weekends learning that PROGMEM, a method of saving space on AVR chips, doesn't work the way I thought and now I finally have my trigger -> midi adapter working with my drummachine.

so I quit my job last week because I was offered a pre-doc position! Starting in september I will be back in Vienna working on systems security and privacy. Best of all I will be paid to publish things and teach again! \o/
A bit afraid of working 40h again, so I'm planning to get some professional help as soon as I've settled.
