I received a zip full of files from someone who thought it would be cute/clever to use some kind of messed-up non-(terminal)-printable character in all the filenames. After dorking-around for 15 minutes trying to cobble together a shell script to fix this (hard when you can't type the target character) I found detox, and it *just fixed the fucking thing*

The great thing about Unix is that it's been around long enough that there's almost zero chance someone hasn't run into the same problem you're having, and for a long time most unix users have been programmers, so there's almost always a program out there that will solve your problem.

Hello Philippine Twitter, somebody needs a trans-friendly shelter because she left a transphobic household. Any good leads? A retweet also helps for visibility and could help others in similar situations.

current slavery, Ivory Coast, cocoa, legal action 

"Eight children who claim they were used as slave labour on cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast have launched legal action against the world’s biggest chocolate companies. They accuse the corporations of aiding and abetting the illegal enslavement of “thousands” of children on cocoa farms in their supply chains.

Nestlé, Cargill, Barry Callebaut, Mars, Olam, Hershey and Mondelēz have been named as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington DC by the human rights firm International Rights Advocates (IRA), on behalf of eight former child slaves who say they were forced to work without pay on cocoa plantations in the west African country."

writing, essay, self-sabotage 

Small essay I wrote for my newsletter on self-sabotage and self-critique.

It’s interesting that, when corporate people talk about physical or mental health, or work-home balance, or personal wellness in general, they always suggest activities that go on top of (and not in place of) the existing institutions, structures, and duties.

Capitalism does not discuss what already exists, and if there is something to be done to benefit the workers’ wellness, the company will describe it as the workers’ own duty, not the company’s. Oh, and do it out of office hours!

I guess I never posted an intro so here we are!

I'm Fen! I'm a computer science student from France. At the time I'm writing this, I'm looking to apply for a Ph.D in my university. I'm also a furry and an artist, and I sometimes take commissions.

I am non-binary, probably agender but I still don't use this label for myself so I just stay under the non-binary umbrella. My pronouns are they/them, but he/him are fine too.

I can speak French, which is my native language, as well as English, proficiently. I am currently learning Mandarin Chinese (I am a beginner still), and I know bits of Italian and Ancient Greek.

Politics wise, I'm obviously very left-wing, but I don't know exactly the term for my personal beliefs. Probably leaning towards anarchism and communism.

My research domain is NVRAM-related coherency problems in HPC contexts.

Feel free to follow me and talk to me, some people told me I look inaccessible/intimidating but really I'm just a little ball of stress and anxiety!!
