throat and forumware

Sep 19th, 2016 at 2:56 PM · health, wtf an update, crossposted: msree.livejournal.com
Hi. My throat has a red stripe at the back of my mouth! It's scratchy and my head is heavy, but it doesn't hurt to swallow so I figure it could be worse.

I don't understand how forum software can exist in 2016 that doesn't generate RSS or any other feed format and doesn't even provide email subscriptions. I suppose they expect every user to bookmark the site and dutifully check in regularly to see what's new, and that is so ridiculously far from my own experience that I cannot fathom how anyone could imagine that being a good plan. I do know that email can be a twisty thing to wrangle, but I don't see how RSS and Atom are too hard for a software developer who knows what they're doing and gives at least one actual fuck.

There are a few things I should get to doing now, one of which is rest so I get over this throat thing. I think I will read another chapter of Ava's Demon before I decide which to try.

ups and downs of socializing

Jul 14th, 2016 at 7:03 PM · holidays, crossposted: msree.livejournal.com, wtf an update, has: comments
I had a lot of socializing over the Independence Day period, more than I am quite comfortable with, and by the end of it I was firmly lodged into a corner, constantly refreshing my phone in desperate search of something more familiar for me to do. (This was not helped by the person present who did two things upon my entrance: one, told a joke where the punchline was that women are not supposed to enjoy the hobbies that I enjoy, and two, asked me about my relationship to someone I don't speak to anymore because Reasons, then doubled down when I tried to be politely refuse to answer.)

I'm still perturbed by that sequence.

I'm back to my old self after a few days of normal routine, though.

There are posts at Pro! We had a Snoggy in the chat! Turns out Snog and I watch a bunch of the same TV shows! I.... got nothing else done all afternoon because chat had priority and I regret nothing! (Although I do need to get a few things accomplished before supper.)

What a good day it's been.

Take care of yourselves out there!
