mother relationships 

i feel like one day i will regret saying this, long after she's gone, when all i want is to talk to her. but all i want is for her to be happy and it's all her own doing (or not doing, i guess).

mother relationships 

talking to my mom is so emotionally exhausting and she literally has nothing to talk about. i feel so guilty for not wanting to talk to her anymore but she chooses to do nothing, not see a therapist, or get a hobby so all she has to talk about is work and the dog. it's just old.

soft. ware.

basically hacker news went down yesterday and in this screenshot someone chimes in talking about it saying that they had a batch of SSDs manufactured by SanDisk all get bricked after exactly 40,000 hours (4.5 years) uptime because it overflowed an internal counter and corrupted the SSD's internal state.

someone from hackernews replies and says that the SSDs HN was hosted on were in fact SanDisk Optimus Lightning IIs and almost exactly 4.5 years old.

A couple views of Donner Lake, not too far south on the PCT from Interstate 80 (which you can see cutting south in the first picture). #california #nature

officially on the lookout for actual petticoats, not shitty halloween costume ones. please let me know if you know of american-made petticoats i can buy or shops that have them!

happy to go global once i’ve exhausted US-made shops but trying to reduce my carbon emissions 💕

I'm happy to introduce our new ultra-low tech CMS for smol, accessible websites. The goal was to make something that could be self-hosted, but friendly enough for people who don't SFTP or use a terminal. 3 PHP files, Apache, and Gemtext. Should work on any dumb old Apache host; a technical person could manage many of these for friends and family with zero maintenance. Happy to answer any questions or take bug reports.

a very neurodivergent music thing that means nothing to anyone 

madison beer's "emotional bruises" has been given me an extremely long-lasting earworm (going on a month now) because there is an unresolved melody at the end (to me) and the song doesn't finish as strong as i think it should.

tonight was the night. just resolved that melody with a harmony that matched and my brain wuz lyk ~*relief*~
