I have just been informed that shouting "Melvar will destroy you!" is not an adequate voicemail greeting.

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at mch2022.org

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

What was Ferris Bueller?

Food 

Huh... Ben's Wild Rice goes unusually well with kimchi.

A reminder for those of you who happen to be unlucky enough to live in the US right now with #RoeVsWade overturned:

Uninstall any proprietary period tracking apps you might have – they *will* snitch on you.

Use drip instead, its fully open source and doesn't include trackers[1].

I think this goes without saying, but please, go on camping trips to other places (like say, Chicago or Canada).

But do not post details about your camping trips.

Use a VPN to learn details of your camping trips, especially if you do a staycation.

I 100% support the right to go on camping trips. But do not tell me about them. Do not tell Anyone about your camping trips unless they need to know.

And if you haven't already: Delete any app that tracks periods. It can and WILL be used against you.

When I get old, i need to remember to make a will and put in it that I want "Highway to Hell" played at full volume as they inter my ashes.

And they installed it wrong. And refuse to do anything because they're in a hurry. Time to call the company -_-

Getting a new dryer delivered today, and the delivery guys are kinda jerks... :-/

mental health, complaining 

These past few days have absolutely not been kind to me. Hallucinating things, bad dreams, wanting to cut, and not being able to function are not fun. Sadly, all things I'm used to :-/ I'm trying to be more open about them, though, because i feel like I've buried them far too much in unhealthy ways.

But between therapy and releasing yet another Doom map, I'm hoping this week will be better.

Getting a functioning dryer will also be nice since ours died last week :-P

Bad programming 

Living on the edge, because life is short.

Complaining 

Ugh, I don't deal well with summer. Like, at all. The heat makes me so uncomfortable and anxious that I end up just sitting around and vegetating all day. And now they're expecting temperatures of 95-102 F here tomorrow (35-38.8 C).

But hey, at least it's dry heat, right? .....right? ^_^;

I seriously miss winter and snow right now. Maybe I should permanently live in Antarctica.

I'm not the only one who uses Erlenmeyer flasks for her daily glassware, right?

Ok so hear me out

Fire -> Hot
Fox -> Canine -> Dog

Firefox Web Browser -> Hot Dog Web Browser

So I apparently use a hot dog web browser. Now I just need the old Windows 3.1 Hot Dog Stand theme for it...
