Mastodon is for people who want to here my horny screeing intermixed with retro tech and art projects.

TechBros and DudeMen please go follow me on altsegcat@twitter.com where there is instead software complaining and professional shit.

After many arguments about how to abreviate "control" we have compromised to "c5l" no one likes it, but at least everyone agrees now stupid of is

I am awake for a Ben Jordan stream, its officiallly really too late.

My sleep schedule is so fucked, I bet only my American mutrals are reading this, and I bet they should be asleep too.

Adult cartoons (the non porn kind) 

Of course short of talking to them who the hell knows what kids are taking away from these shows. But if my (recently ended) childhood is anything to go by no one actually has real conversations with teenagers anymore. No one asks them anything about how they feel about life. To some degree I was raised more by McFarlane than my own parents.

Things like that make me wanna teach. But I have seen enough of how the system works to know you're not really allowed to make a difference.

Adult cartoons (the non porn kind) 

I grew up watching family guy and American dad (cos who the hell enforces the 18+ rule on those sorts of things back in '08)

it taught me the life lesson that no one will ever respect me cos im different, and therefore my relationships with people are pretty much worthless and disposable.

Pretty crappy lesson if there ever was one. I didn't realise how damaging that sort of "adult" content is till I was an adult myself.

So I do wonder what the 14yr olds of today are learning from Rick and Morty. Cos my take away from that show is you can talk your way out of genocide if you're smart enough. Although I think it might be more harmful if these kids are relating to Morty, in as much as they feel they'll always be living in someone's shadow. Either way if you're struggling to pick a major we're gonna need a lot more therapists.

Note to all TV writers: there's no such thing as redemption and no such thing as good people doing bad things.

Stop writing redemption arcs

Have you all seen the Better Cyberpunk bundle?
A bunch of cyberpunk games and zines without the racism, transphobia, and labor exploitation.

I just blocked someone for recomending shapes.io as an alternative to factorio.

Bitterness 

I am slowly turning bitter again.

Funnily enough outing yourself as trans is only a temporary distraction from your real problems.

Anyone know how to boot Linux in 8MB of RAM.

I cant get it less than 19M, and I've used every trick I know. I'd settle for 16 at this point, but my hardware only has 8.

Today is a "firmly place nuclear warhead against eyeball" kind of day!
