I shouldn't have to say this, but after the last few days it is painfully clear that I do...

If you send a follow request, and have never talked to me then I'm not going to approve it.

Help. I have run out of spoons. Please send more.

I'm looking for work. I'll likely be able to relocate (within the US) within the next few months, but I am a trans woman and prefer (and have long experience with) remote work.

Selected skills:

* HTML/JS/CSS, incl. multiple frameworks and supersets
* Python and PHP (including WordPress)
* Data analysis with Stata or R
* System administration (including both LAMP and other Linux- or Windows-based stacks)

This would be a more convincing way to sell batteries if it was a battery instead of an empty plastic box plugged into a wall...

Can anyone recommend a nice computer case that is large, good at cooling that will be quiet and subtle? I don't want something with lights, etc.

Crush that toxic masculinity!

11yo: From 1 to 10, how much do you like dad's new house?
7yo: 5. What does 5 mean?

7yo: Who architected this house? It is so weird. Have you ever heard of a kitchen on the second floor?

🐦 Galápagos Dove (Zenaida galapagoensis)
❕The 1685 Galapagos Island expedition by the British Privateers is where the first interaction of Galápagos doves and humans took place. They were extremely tame, were hunted and subsequently developed an inherent fear of humans in the following centuries.

When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".

We know.

There are two options:

1) Make the broad generalization. Some men will have to stop and self-examine to see if they actually perform the behavior being criticized. Self-examination is good.

2) Specify "some men". This gives men who DO perform the behavior the excuse to say "well they don't mean ME". Enabling failure to self-examine is bad.

h/t @gingerrroot and @c0debabe for the thought
