I don't have a laptop

really need to do work I can only do on computer


Pray tell: what's the best way to keep packages and home directory (or at least well-defined local environments) in sync between many computers?

I could hack it with git and some scripts, but I'm guessing there's a better way?

I have to provide so many fucking bios lately and it's super annoying! I hate talking about myself!!

Since I now have a PhD-in-hand, I'm on the job market!

Skills: Art history & archaeology, digital humanities experience! Teaching! Intro-to-programming workshops! Programming in python, Racket, HTML, CSS! Open Access, FOSS connections, community management!

You can hire me!

I am tooting this on one tab, and can use the dedicated play/pause button to play and pause a YouTube video in another tab

I wrecked my keyboard by accident, and my dad is lending me his keyboard and the setup is kinda hilarious.

It's a logitech set that includes a speaker with USB cable you plug into your computer, and a wireless keyboard + wireless mouse that go through the speaker for connection to the computer. The keyboard has all these built-in audio control keys (mute, volume up/down, next/previous track). I'm pretty sure he got this in like, early 2000s, and it plugged-and-played on my Kubuntu 20.04 desktop

Let's make things together!

@cwebber and I are starting a companion series to @fossandcrafts! These Hack and Craft events will be monthly virtual sessions where we can sit around, socialize, & craft!

The first one is Sat, June 19 2021

Thanks to @foureyedsoul for sharing this response to the "we should remove the MLS degree to make librarianship more diverse" conversation:

It takes a different approach than some others I’ve seen and I definitely recommend reading. And like many things I would say it’s less a pipeline issue than how people are treated when they try to enter the workforce.

I'm frustrated by folks in the U.S. community college system who emphasize that students need to learn 'time management.' A ton of our students must juggle full-time work, family care, & other tasks. They quite simply don't have time. Let's not force students to somehow magically create a 25th hour in the day. Let's figure out as colleges how to deal with students who have no time.

do you all keep a diary/journal? if so, is it unstructured or structured?

I've been using Zotero for years. It has all these tools that I rarely use: notes, tags, related etc.

Does anyone have good resources (or just personal suggestions) on how to get more out of Zotero?

happy birthday to Little Boss (LB) who turns 7 today 🥺

I'm obsessed with him and have been since I adopted him when he was 2mo old.

my birthday is Sunday and I have no idea what to do for it
