confession of a recovering perfectionist 

Well I did 2 homework assignments and both got like 75% done and I AM OK WITH IT!

this reMarkable software update is !!! they implemented intra-PDF linking!!

Hey has anyone out there tried out a larger eInk reader like the Kobo Forma or one of the big Onyx Boox devices? I've been pondering getting an eReader that's bigger than the basic Kindle Paperwhite, but I was curious if anyone had thoughts about them.

feeling bad about myself because I can't get CoreNLP stuff to work in Java (my prof is making us work in Java)

he wants us to do like hashtag frequencies from a twitter dataset with CoreNLP but it just doesn't seem like that's the right tool for the job??

Hey fedi, the Recurse Center is offering up to $1000 to trans/non-binary/women programmers for upcoming batches. RC changed my life and is just an amazing experience/community -- see here for more:

Hello dear academic journal or publisher,

if you wish to spam us about diversity, equality, and similar,

maybe adopt full open access first so people you want to be inclusive of can afford to read the science without other people risking their lives for us to gain access to it.

Yours truly,



what if I watched the Mortal Kombat movie for the 167th time

The sunshine outside is making me miserable because I'm in a 1 bedroom apartment with no easy access to the outdoors.

All I need is a small balcony! Fucking US architecture!

@fsf It's a shame that the secretive insiders "buddy club" that is the FSF Board of Directors put personal friendships ahead of the good of Free Software and the good work of the FSF staff itself. (Not to mention LP contributors.)

Terfs losing court petitions, schadenfreude, birdsite link 

local hate group For Women Scotland has lost their attempt to force the government to not be able to have trans-inclusive policy, with the judge presiding over the case making it pretty goddamn clear that trans women are in fact women.
