#introduction Hi, I'm Kira!
I'm a white nonbinary trans girl in my early 30s.
I am a verrry curious humyn. I value my connection to plants & nature, free software, small simple handmade tools, exploring new things & places, making interesting things, & doing experiments.
Currently, I'm studying earthskills, sailing, various DIY skills, & how to think more like a scientist. I'm partway into my gender metamorphosis, and healing past wounds & traumas. I'm here to have fun, learn & share new things, and make friends.
I communicate best with people who utilize #1-#7 of https://eastbaymeditation.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Agreemnts-Multicultural-Interactions-15.09.13.pdf and have low tolerance for people who behave unkindly or who I don't feel comfortable around, and will mute or block as needed.
Cabal, the open-source & p2p group chat I've worked on with friends, is in a quadratic funding pilot experiment run by Open Collective!
What that means for us, as an example: for every 10 USD donated, we get a total of 83 USD
boosts appreciated 🖤
Some really good reading on "the lie of laziness" if you expand the Excerpt section for this book:
Hey friends, fyi that I've mostly been tooting from https://sunbeam.city/@tty if you're interested in continuing to follow my typedwords :3
Just realized I meant engine, not generator! TIL engine=mechanical energy and generator=electrical energy
Trying to find any prior work around solar generators that use temperature differentials to induce rotation.
So far I've only found https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crookes_radiometer and a solar-thermal stirling engine -- anyone know of others?
so weird reading an article in a magazine about someone doing this for a year since I've been doing it for TEN YEARS
"Describing why the Web is horrible is like describing why it’s horrible to drown in an ocean composed of pufferfish that are pregnant with tiny Freddy Kruegers—each detail is horrendous in isolation, but the aggregate sum is delightfully arranged into a hate flower that blooms all year."
some interesting notes on C design choices given its ancestry of B:
