To my new followers: Hello!

Here you'll find me ranting about things, with fuzzy soft edges.

You might know me ~> over on Twitter as @indrora@twitter.com ~> where I typically post some things, but mostly repost things. 👁️

me: Why is this "pay bill" button not working
me: *drops into console*
console: Angular is running in the development mode. Call enableProdMode() to enable the production mode.
me: ...😬

Sitting at dinner with @ehashman / @ben_zen / @mako & the words "Butt Kroner" is uttered.

Truly we live in am amazing time

Considering how many photos I’ve seen of foxes licking their noses, it must be true that fox noses are delicious.

If your revolution doesn’t have trans cavalry what are you even doing?!?

I have given some serious consideration to leaving vulpine.club. It'll be the second one that I've considered that for. This time not because of stability issues, but.... this time because I feel somewhat awkward with the density of people adjacent to those who I had rocky friendships with.

I can't undo the past but I still feel like where I can fix physical things and such, but the relationships I broke in one place seem to have preemptively followed me somewhere else, physically from SW to PNW, Twitter to Fedi. It's rough seeing people and knowing they have me blocked on Twitter. Sometimes I don't even know why and I feel like it's inappropriate to ask.

There's a degree to which there feels like no way for me to tell those individuals (you know who you are) that I'm sorry for the rash decisions I made nearly a decade ago. I think I saw one of you on the bus a while back. I hope you're okay. One of your old friends asked about you and I had to say "I don't talk to [redacted] anymore, sorry."

Is that GPS disciplined clock still going?

and here I am, in an instance that feels a bit like I belong ( fox :panfox:​ foxy fox) but also like I'm... tolerated? Like, a half step down from neutral with parts of the community.

I'm thinking I should get a "professional" mastodon.

On the other hand, that would mean keeping track of two accounts.

On the third hand, putting my vulpine.club handle in a professional talk feels like wearing by-definition-assless chaps and hawaiian print shorts on stage.

imagine being Christian and thinking that "Jesus was a brown Jewish socialist" was "a stretch" or even "interpretation"

This is pointed straight at places like TensorFlow.

There's a lot of TensorFlow that can't survive an upgrade. Google's own CoLab has this broken mixture of packages.

__You cannot run Google's own CoLab based notebooks in CoLab because they have too new a version of Python__.

I have some angry words for the Scientific Python community:

Support the latest version of the language or get out.

If, within a year of its release, you don't support the current POINT LEVEL release of Python, why? If you can't install Debian Stable (which already has OLD packages) and your stack, then you are doing a fundamental disservice to your users.

Python 3.8 is out, and yet I'm looking at a package that can't support anything over 3.5 published in the year of $DIETY 2020.

oh gosh it's 4AM

I should sleep.

I yelled on birdsite about a hydrographics shop not using HTTPS.

Well, using HTTPS but in the most Galactic Brain way possible: twitter.com/indrora/status/121

This came to a head when I could roughly understand the main points of a video produced by @LaQuadrature

fuck computers. damn them all to hell. 

How in the shit do I make MacOS understand that my keyboard sends f13-32. These make up a shockingly large amount of my workflow.

They exist. Apple even acknowledges this: developer.apple.com/documentat

And yet nothing can see them.

"how would ass grabby-grabby NOT be a full contact sport? We're not playing **flag ass grabby-grabby**."

It is 11/20

Today we remember the trans folks who we have lost so that we may one day never lose more to anything but nature itself.

:natalies_candle: Natalie, Rachel, and all others I cannot remember now, you continue to be a reason to fight.

:trans_flag_half_mast:

Everything will be fine.

Close your eyes and relax.

Next week will bare good news
