power came back on and headache pills kicked in, yay

good night everyone

on the plus side the rain masks my tinnitus nicely so not having a fan on isn't a problem like it ordinarily would be

web pages that spawn a "please subscribe" banner when your mouse leaves the window are the worst "innovation" since pop-ups

i *was* just going to switch to a different tab, recipe site, but now i'm leaving and blacklisting your garbage ad trap

Anyone who knows anything about trans mtf voice training please give me suggestions for guide videos and exercises. I want to train my voice now that I have time, but have no idea how to get started.

If you can't help directly, please boost so that someone else can.

weird how all the hornyposting doesn't even raise an eyebrow for me, but animated avatars on social media feel so transgressive that i literally gasped at one just now

features still missing from mastodon: the "solidarity, comrade" button for when someone posts something deeply personal/emotional and you want to show support without the weird implication of "hell yeah your inner pain is my favorite"

Sat up in bed this morning, biting my lip, feeling brightly bisexual.

it would be nice to be able to boost with a cw if its Good Content but perhaps inconsiderately unlabled

i love how federation makes the propagation wave of a meme so much more visible and tangible

“I'm reading vape ape aftershocks at a strength of 1 tpm (toot per minute), sir!"

"...Issue the evacuation order, and may god help us all."

Me: what if tonight's meme is we all be nice to each other and try to get a good night's sleep?

*everyone starts gyrating*

Me, sighing: fine, we can be horny AGAIN

spent ~3 hours getting the universal remote to work with kodi on debian

my decision to verify that it worked by opening netflix and watching a joy of painting episode was uncharacteristically wise

anger, ranting 

like literally anyone even slightly adjacent to tech, both hardware and software have caused me their fair share of ridiculous, unnecessary, nonsensical problems

but for some reason it's only the hardware problems that make me want to literally, physically destroy objects (and occasionally, my fellow human beings) with my bare hands

it feels supremely bad and i wish i could avoid it more consistently or cope with it better

eugen selfie reminding me that I am indeed bisexual
