one of the harder problems i've faced: given an hdri, what's the best position to hold a book in that lighting so that text renders clearly?

mother bird is back this year and she's resting in two little eggs 🥚🥚

wish i was better at comforting people. it wasnt modeled during my childhood so learning how as an adult isn't impossible, just much harder

People making fun of crypto but not of the rest of the capitalist economy.

First time a power outage(surge?) killed a power supply. Feels like a rite of passage. A sacrifice WAS made.

I drew this comic a while back, and with the start of another pride month with another slew of terrifying things going on, here is my comic about Feeling Safe and lashing out against the phrase "you don't have to make your sexuality your whole personality"

CW for describing a memory of people being transphobic, but I think it's worth not blurring the entire comic for it

medical awfulness 

colonoscopy prep is the worst. it's a bowel-wrenching roller coaster that has no brakes. bad time 🤢

Infrastructure as code 

Anyone else grateful that terraform exists, but somehow still feels like we're doing infra building wrong?

Superstition, data collection, metadata 

With folklore, folks used to be cautious about what to do with hair and nail clippings. As those could give a witch or sorcerer power over you.

We have this now with our electronic clippings, we give our clippings to social networks and that gives a whole heap of power to them and to the buyers of that data who can then analyse it.

There's an analogy for you. 😏

AWS venting 

Relative complexity:
* Dockerize Blender rendering: 1
* Render text to pdf and then to png using LaTex and pandoc: 1
* Post using Mastodon api: 1
* Configure AWS infra so that I don't get a surprise bill for $500 next month: 100
