So Facebook seems to have clocked on hard to me being a girl and been showing me lots of advadtisements for things like corsets, lingerie and swimwear.
So every time I log on I just see pretty things that I wish I could wear, but can't, and feel like I won't ever be able to.

"Hello my favorite black liquid, you understand me โ˜•"
"Ahhhh, you taste so wonderful, my dear โ˜•" (Okay, that's very creepy sounding)

After a lengthy conversation with @1stvamp I am more encouraged than ever to run my own Mastodon instance.

OC I really don't want to pull a card from the Deck of Many Things - but my character loves chance and luck and risking chaos so HERE WE GO!! ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽฒ

Are there tools that exist for reviewing code patches? Just viewing a textual diff is incredibly hard.

@spacekookie I don't have any choice! It's the Wine project, C89 is the "tool" of choice ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Did a good job shooting myself in the foot today. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tidying up - AKA hiding everything you'll need in the next few days.

It's Sunday, a day for resting.
a day for enguaging in a hobby, something entirely different from one's day job.

As such, I spent a large portion of my day hacking on a Kobo Touch eReader. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

If you ever need to know all the details of the registry keys used to fill Windows' OpenWith list, I can advise. In detail.

Oh gosh this is my life now.

11:00pm is too late of an hour to be trying to understand triple-level C pointers...

I just want a reference to an array of char *s! Why can't my brain understand all the redirection.....

Don't you ever tell me that error handling in C is totally fine.

This function can return anything >= 0 as success.
Alternatively, -1 on failure, or 0 on a different failure.

[Using C89 with wide char strings]

It feels so wrong to have to define a string before I can pass it to a function.

Like, its a static string but I can't just write it as a function argument because C89 can't make a string out of Windows wide chars.

I had one of *those* Dr's appointments today.
The kind where you go for [unrelated thing] and the Dr asks invasive questions about my gender and transition progress for seemingly no reason other than his own curiosity.

My job as a remote software engineer means my office can be anywhere.
Even a moving car ๐Ÿš™ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Gonna make an attempt at getting back to running, if y'all could encourage me that'd be great ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

FYI train tickets in Amsterdam contain NFC chips.

Doesn't seem to have any cool information in though. It does have a lot of data on, but it's all in hex.
