HELLO! I used to be Vicky Steeves, then @remram44 and I got married, so now I'm Vicky Rampin, so I'm doing another

I'm a librarian focusing on research reproducibility + research data management.

I love FOSS, open access, open educational resources, open EVERYTHING

I hate the corporate capture of scholarship

I also love my super cute black cat Little Boss

'Shipping Up To Boston' was actually the Dropkick Murphys AO3 account name

tired: skirts without pockets
wired: usable pockets on skirts
inspired: skirt pockets so voluminous they get got on doorknobs as you walk by

writing job ads is HARD

what are some of the things i should 100% avoid doing that aren't obvious?

(obvious being, "remote/hybrid friendly", not asking for a unicorn, not giving 1 person 12 jobs, etc)

gripe about myself

oh my gods. they literally have no shame about this.

GitHub Support just straight up confirmed in an email that yes, they used all public GitHub code, for Codex/Copilot regardless of license.

anxiety ramble 

I'm so anxious about all the things I have to do and people want to do PR for a project I'm on and it's making me more anxious aaaaaa

Lemmy documentation now has instructions for installing from scratch (without Docker)

join-lemmy.org/docs/en/adminis

Github Copilot is pronounced "Copy-lot"

I changed the fonts on everything to Didact Gothic and it's super cute

is there a way to change the app panel background color on kubuntu?

MPOW is doing a "zoom-free week" this week (altho since I'm teaching this week I'm doing like, a 90% zoom-free week)

I have mixed feelings about it because I severely doubt that they'd ever do a "no meetings" week if we were all IRL and I find that a bit fucked, but also I love no meetings so I'll take it

this might be the most American thing I've ever tooted but...

I really wish my desk had cup holders because I ALWAYS have like min 2 and max 5 drinks going at once and I have no space left for them

Adding benches so people can sit is also a disability issue. Having freely available public restrooms is also a disability issue. Having clean water fountains is a disability issue. All of these things would also make cities more walkable and they would make them more friendly to people who are living on the street.

I hate when there's talk of making a city less car-centric and somebody chimes in with "Well what about disabled people!? They need cars!" as a gotcha, like there aren't a fuckton of disabled people who need more buses, curb cuts, and crosswalks to navigate the city, or longer lights to cross, or sound and tactile cues to let them know where they are. There are many kinds of conditions with different kinds of needs, and being driven around everywhere addresses only a certain subset of this, not to mention the class issue of who can afford a car or who has access to someone who can drive them.
