Pinned post

i realized i don't have a pinned post talking about why i don't post on mastodon and then forward the tweets to twitter.

some of you know who i am on both platforms and know that the content is incredibly different between those platforms. this is because i think i should maintain some kind of a professional facade for the people who just want to follow me for tech related stuff or updates to infrastructure.

as you might have noticed. this account is not on a fedi profile. we don't yet have a mastodon instance for once we do have a mastodon instance for, i will either be mirroring tweets from there, or - most likely - will be moving 100% to mastodon in terms of content creation.

i don't have enough of a following on twitter anyway to warrant putting my important posts there.

Gender politics, bad advice 

If the government thinks that the gender I was born with is the gender I have now, then I reserve the right to go 75 in the section where they painted 60 over the signs.

I'm locking my account so I get notifications for new followers. I will most likely allow you, but I just want to see who follows me, and this is the best way to do it for my setup.

After some fun failures, I have made a new PGP keyring. Fingerprint: 88823A75ECAA786B0FF38B148E401478A3FBEF72 | URL:

If you have another way to contact me and verify this key is correct, feel free to do so. If you'd like to sign this key, HMU.

body odor, acne-adjacent 

Decided to try and do something with the blackheads on my nose. Despite what I would consider to be reasonable hygiene practices, they've been there for years. I've just not really cared. But today I was interested and tried to squeeze one out.

The fucking smell is so God damn disgusting. And it's right on my fucking nose so there's really nothing I can do about it. No amount of washing helps.

family member passed away, grieving, gun (not related) 

anyways tinkered with my rifle and pistol a bit and that gave me enough of a distraction to not really think too hard about it.

got a new red dot for my rifle and an underbarrel flash light for the pistol. waiting on red dot for the pistol too.


Legal disclaimer: I am not suicidal, I have no suicidal tendencies, and the guns I have were not purchased with the intent of committing suicide. Feel like I need to include this given the above. Fuck off ATF.

family member passed away, grieving 

Was gonna ask my dad to keep an eye out for a 3080 under a thousand. He could always find components somehow. We'd bond over getting new parts and building franken-computers. I'll make do without him, but I've never missed anyone more than I miss him right now. I wish I could talk to him about work, even if he'd just nod and pretend to understand what I was talking about.

I've never felt so lonely. He was always so supportive. It's hard going on without him.

How to parallelize any loop in zsh:

Insert the following "limiter":
while [ "$(jobs | wc -l)" -ge 14 ]; do sleep 1; done

14 is the amount of parallelized jobs.

Then, put the code inside the loop into a shell script, and launch the shell script like, `zsh your_arg1 your_arg2 &`.

The & is significant. That's what parallelizes it.

I don't know how to talk to my boss about how I think my mental health is affecting my ability to do my job and I think it's going to get to the point where I'm going to just lose my job because of it.
