You ever just had a vague idea of a piece you'd like of your sona, but you're aphantasic and don't really know what that'd look like save for the most abstract description?
Well it turns out @fluxom_art read my mind, and it turned out better than I could've hoped!
I'm a plantshark now
Gender Census 2020 Report #2: The identity question
Me: The race condition happens because the thread just posts a message to make X happen, then does something that requires X to have completed.
Brain: It's surprising that we still use the notion of a linear order of events when thinking about race conditions.
Me: Wait, what?
Hi, I wrote a thing about some problems I had with creative schoolwork https://archive.org/details/stunted-creativity-or-how-i-skipped-an-entire-category-of-schoolwork

I have the Zoom client installed on my computer (the only things I use it for don't need encryption). And every time I leave the computer for any length of time, when I come back, the Zoom client has started on its own.
It's not a specific interval. It's not a specific time. It just seems to be any time I'm away from the computer for more than 15 minutes; when I wake the computer back up, Zoom's sitting there, waiting.
I check running daemons, I poke at background tasks - nothing.
Finally, it occurs to me: "when I wake the computer up". So on a hunch, I check xscreensaver - which has an oooold screensaver called "zoom". I don't have that screensaver installed, but it's listed in the possible screensavers, so xscreensaver checks for it - and it doesn't just check the screensavers directory, it checks $PATH too.
I remove the "zoom" line from ~/.xscreensaver - and the problem goes away.
When I need to test things on Windows for work now it goes Windows->synergy->synergyc->Linux (local)->Remmina->x11vnc->Linux (work)->VirtualBox->Windows. It's kind of amazing that the whole chain works.
first half of the free batch of icons i did for pride!

Everyone says to use tape but I've found that shoelaces do a much better job of keeping the balls in place while being less painful, and once they're in place there's no need to secure the rest of it, underwear is good enough. Why does everyone use tape?
