Pinned toot

I haven't social-mediaed in my own name since... since... I think since I shuttered Book of Trogool. Which was a while ago.

(Editorializing for LJ doesn't quite count. Not social media exactly.)

But what the hey, let's give it another whirl. It'll be interesting to see who uses it to try to take me down THIS time.

F-bomb 

And now, terminology:

- Google
- Googling
- Googled
-----------
- Duck Duck Go
- Duck Duck Going
- Duck Duck Went

This calendar year I have dealt with

- my divorce
- four new-prep classes (FSCKING FOUR, Y'ALL, IT'S A LOT OF WORK)
- one more major-revision class
- trying (and failing, but still trying) to hold up my end of Data Doubles
- Jail Library Group obligations
- the not-a-merger-with-CS
- RADD stuff
- the Distinguished app (also a lot of work, though yay! result!)

Can't imagine why I don't want to informally-lead the GetFTR fight.

Hm. Maybe I just buy one of those component-to-HDMI jiggers and plug the DVCPRO into the rig that way. I'm not otherwise using the HDMI connection on the capture card.

Hey, A/V digitization peeps. I need help.

Do any of y’all run composite AND component video into the same capture gizmo, and if so, how do you rig that? Is there a Magic Switch/PatchBay I don’t know about that’s happy with both?

PROTIP: if you don’t want to update to macOS Catalina, and you don’t want Software Update bugging you about it, just run this in your terminal:

sudo softwareupdate --ignore "macOS Catalina"

Weirdly, my tights survived the event without a rip or a run. I may have to figure out where I bought them and buy more!

So my exciting thing for the day was laying my bike down while turning a corner through a bunch of wet leaves. I'm basically fine (bruises, road rash, possibly-sprained thumb) and bike is probably fine and in the hands of Mobile Bike Guy.

But I do not recommend this course of action. It's rather painful.

HELLvetica. Like helvetica, but with like, much shittier kerning for Halloween.

Grateful for Jane Schmidt's remarks to the board/public forum about Toronto Public Library's willingness to host hate speech about trans women incidentalacademic.wordpress.c

#psa You should probably stop using Startpage.com as a search engine.

#Startpage appears to have sold out to a company called "System1" who are a "pay-per-click behavioral ad company"
