Pinned toot

I’d always felt I was lacking in foundational knowledge and skill in programming, but I keep coming back to it, both in work and as a practice, and I want to let go of deep-seated fears that I don’t know enough, or I can’t do enough, including the fear of people finding out I don’t know x, y, and z. Not knowing is not a bad thing, and learning when (and how) to ask for help is an even better thing.

So these are things I am currently learning, and re-learning. Hello! 👋

Working on a few things tonight… kapitbisig.ca website for mutual aid during COVID-19 for Filipinos in Canada; my friend’s custom theme for Ghost CMS (wish I could just use a static site generator but she’s got a ton of content and a CMS works best for her purposes); and a Vue.js range slider for work!

I’ve got 99 problems and I swear to god, capitalism is responsible for nearly all of them

"This was the beginning of surveillance capitalism, and the end of the Internet as I knew it. Now, it was the creative Web that collapsed, as countless beautiful, difficult, individualistic websites were shuttered. The promise of convenience led people to exchange their personal sites [...] for a Facebook page and a Gmail account."

- Edward Snowden from his book "Permanent Record"

Fediverse! How have you written your time-tracking software— what language, how you’ve set it up (only tracking when programming or doing some form of work, or tracking every single thing? and if so, how do you separate them into categories or projects?)

I started making an ORCA tutorial site. I also rigged up enfer to work in the same browser page ^___^

An artist friend recommended me this technique to get back to drawing. It seems super relaxing. youtube.com/watch?v=MJYGFwGhHn

I think it’s apt that I make new introduction posts every now and then; as I change and what I believe and value change…

It was a nerve-wracking experience, but it was also fun and exciting and I hope I have the confidence to talk more about subjects that interest me and are important to me! Maybe something technical at some point, too. 🤖

Used Digital Ocean in the interim because I couldn’t figure out prgrmr 😂 but all the tutorials/how-tos I referenced are here: pinboard.in/u:infornography
