Thanks so much to everyone who came along to my session on allyship this evening. It was an absolute pleasure to talk with you all!

The recording and slides are here: kesgai.com/2020/08/06/summersc

Really humbled to have been a part of such a wonderful series of talks. Huge love to all my fellow presenters!

Looking for some amazing new academics to join the team here - if you want to shape the future of education and are either into Physics, Material Sciences, or Social Sciences... hit me up!

Since moving into London I've had to invest in 5G internet because fibre just hasn't made it through all these listed buildings etc yet.

Just increased my speed twofold by sticking some external high-gain antennae on the edge of my balcony.

Starting to think my love of cabled-in internet is somewhat oldschool now.

Things I dislike about working in academia include:

- Inevitable flu every single October;
- That's about it.

Only 4 days to go until I've moved and life can sorta kinda start to get back to normal ish maybe.

I don't enjoy that I'm feeling like shit. Might go do something about that.

Taking my cat to the vee eee tee today, hoping he's fine but got to get him checked following his friends passing away last week. I'm a nervous momma.

Made eggy bread (aka 'French Toast') this morning and it truly is the breakfast of champions.

This evidenced by my eating it during a call with my manager, who instantly became jealous.

My TransValues result is... about what I expected really.

"Transvalues is, in essence, a half serious shitpost quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different values related to trans issues."

OK, here's the experimental battery bank powered Pinephone convergence rig. When everything sleeps from inactivity it is only drawing 250mA so I should be able to leave it all "on" without draining the power bank too fast as I come and go. That might go down a little more even if the Pinephone gets fully topped up. The external display draws nothing once it goes to sleep.

Sure, I'm into all the latest technology, but I maintain that I'm never as productive without an old-school whiteboard next to my desk.

Turns out building a new campus from scratch is hard when you have tight deadlines. Who knew?!

Twenty years ago this year Beyoncé Knowles first cried "I will survive being Bootylicious" and as life advice goes it's done me pretty well.

“Not all trans people know each other” I insist through clenched teeth, as I draw yet more lines between people in my address book.

Nobody over here in the fediverse is talking about ABBA so I must conclude that I am the only dancing queen amongst you.

I shall therefore intensify both my campness and my danciness by a factor of twelve.
