Hi. I'm Jaina. And you're browsing Mastodon.

You are all now aware that the Skeleton Panda Sea Squirt is a thing.

Some personal news, working on getting all retro achievements on Tetris DX

I've been enjoying 'sleep' mixes of Autechre and Boards of Canada lately while working


Today I experimented with various ways to render a point cloud in a-frame.

I say this because when I talk about my personal projects, say building my own static site generator, responses fall into these two broad categories.

“Cool how does it work?”
“I thought about doing that once!”


“That seems like a waste of time, just use Hugo”

Apparently this is news to many in the West, but... China is not an ethnic monolith. Not nearly. Not even close. More like... the direct opposite of that.

Please help my friend Juno escape her abusive household. Any little amount helps, with rent and travel and whatnot. Seriously, any amount can make a difference. Please share this around!

I wish we had more dumb storage media.

These days, most storage devices - USB sticks, HDDs, SD cards - have a builtin controller and firmware. If it gets pwned, you can't trust any data on the device, and there's no easy way to verify the firmware.

Back in the day, we used to use Floppies, tapes and CDs. In case of these, the controller was part of the computer, and you only removed the raw medium.

Tapes are still around, but they're pretty niche...
