So hey just a request:
if I say something that you know to be untrue or that contradicted something else I said previously, please let me know so that I can reconcile things and disentangle things that are true from things I only wish were true.
I don't want to be an unreliable narrator, and I don't want to fall into some very bad habits and patterns that have been ingrained to me all my life.
I want to be better than that.
Oops I lost my old #introductions post in the last instance fandango but enough has changed I'd might as well make a new one right?
Hi, I'm fluffy! I'm a software engineer by day (working at an HIV research lab as of December, 2018) and in my spare time I make music, games, comics, and bad decisions.
See my bio for various links!

As much as I love the #DoveSelfEsteemProject (especially the Steven Universe bits), keep in mind that Dove is a Unilever company, whose CEO says stuff like this: https://www.thedrum.com/news/2019/06/19/unilever-ceo-alan-jope-laments-the-woke-washing-ads-polluting-brand-purpose
While trying to fix a redis/celery problem with redash at work I came across this blog entry: https://goshippo.com/blog/loading-data-memcached-or-how-we-built-rube-goldberg-machine-python-redis-memcached-and-celery/
The fact that the punchline wasn't "and then we realized it would be trivial to just use a shell script to load the data into SQL and query that directly" is meh

We all do that, about each other, too
The only reason we know about That Thing is because we had to deal with it in the past

I never had student debts, thanks to financial aid and my university not costing all that much (state school).

So I gotta say, today I'm feeling a lot better. Between getting 9 hours of sleep last night, the lower nortriptyline dose, the magnesium supplements, and me not using my CPAP last night, surely one of those things was the primary contributing factor.
I was even able to take a decent-sized walk without feeling completely wiped out today! Although I'll probably still want to drive or bus to work tomorrow.
It is not a weakness to bring your humanity into what you build. Injecting the human soul into soulless technology is a key part to making sure we can treat each other as fellow human beings worthy of living, even if we disagree.

So don't be surprised that I side *against* the group of people that believes certain other human beings are not worthy of living. That's a part of me, and I won't apologize
Seattle-based music/code/comics critter. Vaguely friend-shaped. Fibro-spoony, queer, and anxious as heck. Handle with care.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
