Hi hi,

My name is Clover, and I'm a 41 year old autistic trans person living in a semi-rural area of the western US.

I don't tend to be particularly outgoing, which is probably why it's taken me over a year (and five accounts) to get around to an #introduction post.

Some of my interests include:

* Daily journaling (#vim #vimwiki #cli)
* GNU/Linux - I've sysadmin-ed (in the TechEd field, mostly) for over a decade
* #linux which I've used in one form or another since the late 90s. (Don't send help, I'm fine.)
* Privacy/security - esp. defeating advertisements and subverting tracking wherever possible
* Repairing, re-using, or repurposing things, technology in particular
* #scifi and related pop culture, and riffing them mercilessly where deserved (which is frequently)
* Scripting with #perl and #bash to automate tasks and simplify computing (mainly due to health issues) and to aid in collecting, managing, and analysing data
* #singleboard computing (so far just Raspberry Pi cards) for weather data collection, cheap security, wireless testing

I'm most likely to post about transgender and autism adjacent things, sometimes tech whinges.

Content consent is very important to me. If I post things that you'd like CW-ed, please let me know.

She/her pronouns are appreciated.

I made it about 15 minutes into Another Life. It's sci-fi that's so soft it's flaccid.

I read that Anthony Mackie is taking over the role of Takeshi Kovacz in season 2 of Altered Carbon. I'm not sure if Joel Kinnaman was unavailable, or if they made this change by design, but in either case it's cool to see a show about people who can change bodies change actors for their lead characters too.

The robots buzzed, bustled & beeped gently at each other.

The humans were due to thaw soon, so the ship needed to be cleaned, air tested, hydroponics trimmed & neatened, meals & bunks prepared, and survival gear distributed.

The planet below had been deemed Perfect for human life. Soon they would dismantle the ship and robots aboard for components.

Maybe the humans could sleep just a LITTLE longer... just to be sure nothing sapient evolved.

Пытался посмотреть "Гостью из будущего". Саундрек волшебный, соларпанковский сеттинг в первой серии радует.
Но это странное решение постановщиков запретить актёрам играть и заставить их кривляться мне решительно непонятно. Это тягучее месиво неловкости досмотреть до конца не смог.
И всё-таки этот оптимистичный советский футуризм завораживает. Надоел мрачный киберпанк, хочу космический яркий коммунизм.
