Had to use my Windows machine to get a relatively old libre software to work with the PDF files I need to read (it's available on Snap but it was such a PITA to try to make it work on Linux I had to try using it on Windows).

I'm wasting so many hours trying to make PDF files accessible (breaking columns, enlarging fonts, getting rid of elements that may interfere with k2pdfopt ways of doing things).

We need to move on from things like PDF.

Someone didn't repair this phone properly — a month after being sent to its new owner the battery got so bloated it did a number on the motherboard components and it can't boot to Android anymore. 😬

tip to not fuck up your friend’s pronouns, especially if they’ve changed their pronouns recently: practice them when your friend isn’t around

practice your friend’s pronouns to yourself out loud. repeat phrases that you often say about them with the correct pronouns to yourself. likewise if they ask you to use a different name, say their name and pronouns to yourself over and over again. mistakes happen, but you can reduce the frequency of the mistakes by practicing

As an undergrad, I'm forever grateful for:
* k2pdfopt
* Sci-Hub

What nice FOSS projects that involve a lot of hardware testing/building are really friendly to newcomers and relatively easy to hop in? My partner loves more practical/hands-on projects and I'd like to recommend him a few.

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.

Partner's health update 

I can't believe it's been (almost) a month since the accident.

Partner's health update 

The idea is using those compression garments 24/7 except when he needs to shower. They want to prevent the formation of keloids especially on his slow but steadily healing third degree burn on his chest. Trauma and suffering apart, it's truly fascinating to see how fast his skin heals from a really scary encounter with hot oil.

(I also didn't understand why he should be using sleeves when the burns he had on his arms are almost done healing but OK)

Partner's health update 

He started using compression garments (a glove, sleeves and a shirt) and so far he hasn't given up on the glove and the shirt but the rest was just unbearable after a couple of minutes (I wonder if the person we ordered that from took his measurements wrong? It didn't look right at all).

I wish there was a guide for services that make it difficult to delete your account (no "Delete your account" button, requires contacting support and sending sensitive information over questionable means of communication to confirm you really want your account gone).
