asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed 

does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.

For Tuesday, winds southwest 5 to 15 knots
Wind waves one to two feet

Sage advice 

The best thing to do is always to find an idea worth pursuing and to practice appreciation of the struggle towards that idea. The lines between observing, appreciating and acting are fluid but usually sequentially progressive in their nature. Aiming to love an idea reaps more rewards than aiming to conquer it.

bryan lunduke linux 2020 rant 

This is entertaining and feels more insightful than Lunduke's previous iterations of this rant.

One of the most notable observations is that the founders of the "Linux and open source" community have mostly been pushed out of their founding positions(FSF, OSI, and a partial on the kernel, cause Linus doesn't swear as much anymore).

And this kind of reads to me as a coda to the entire era of Unix, 1970-2020. Nobody really working on it now was there at the start, and all the movement idealism has been sapped away, so there isn't so much untried belief in the basic design of the thing being Good - it's settled into incremental change - instead, there's a lot more interest in, "what comes next?" and "can't we do better?"

I like how the algorithm manages to fit a irrelevant promoted ad in there

I once again started work on my taxes.

Then thought, "if we enter the Cool Zone who will I owe my taxes to?"

Also tcc builds that half megabyte of source before I have lifted my finger. And this is a 1.1ghz laptop. Good compiler for iteration.

This library(Chipmunk2D) is not making it easy to amalgamate. It decided it needed to define "klass" in different ways in different places, where there's a data type like JointConstraint and then an enumeration of "klass" types for it, and then a different "klass" for Shape.

However if I can crack this, I'll be nearly done apart from a few potential build option things

I am once again concatenating a C library's source into an amalgamated form rather than figure out how it wants to be built


I realized that I can leverage Lua's built-in string.pack() and string.unpack() to do a lot of the lifting for the I/O interface. These functions let me build strings, and then the I/O API itself is literally "where do I put this string".

I wasn't thinking in this way before because I didn't have a codesize goal. Now that I do, suddenly everything becomes easier.

I saw the legendary turkey who crosses the road in GGP ignoring all the traffic today 🦃


After a week and a half of so of letting my exercise just be "go on a walk and then do one set of various things with the bands" I brought out the guided workout app again today and it definitely does a better job of pushing me than I push myself. Nice pump

I adore when I go on the fedi timeline and see "cw: advanced maths"

When read that way, I also think it has a lot to offer for foreign audiences too - it's a familiar story, told in a very fresh way. Unfortunately it also seems to be going over the heads of the average anime viewer in typical Gundam fashion.

BNA, I think, is actually mostly about these questions: Does Japan respect its self-image? Can it be progressive while protecting its traditions? Or will one part overwhelm the other? Although it alludes to many other things in society, this seems like its dominant allegory.
