reintroduction (long) 

my old one was stale and needed an update.

i am Erin.
i am a woman, who loves women. i am trans. i am white. i am young, and a student. i have severe OCD, anxiety, and depression, and a shitton of self-worth issues. i am usually anxious.

i use the surname Moon online. i program software, do maths, and design electrical systems. i am the head of the Rustodon project (github.com/rustodon/rustodon). i do ML research for $dayjob.

i listen to and play music. i am trained in piano, but love synths. jazz and funk are my shit, as well as an embarrassing amount of shitty EDM.

i do not generally play video games. when i do, it's usually a lot like work. for relaxation, i read: fiction, comics, nonfiction.

i am strongly left-leaning to the point of anarchism/anarchocommunism. i try to only build systems that do not harm other humans, now or reasonably in potentia.

A tall, slight girl with long, messy purple hair.
She wears a pair of thick, green cut-epoxy glasses; the lenses flicker with glowing symbols.
She has a shaved patch on the left side of her head, with a protruding twist-lock electrical connector.

I think it's really funny when people call ceos by "firstname companyname" when the last name and company name don't match

I quite like what The Boring Company is doing honestly. Now, every time I identify a problem with my town’s subway system, I can say to myself “Well at least it was not designed by Elon Musk!“ and I instantly feel better. Really helps you to put things into perspective.

people are wondering "why are the kids singing sea chanties" when like, it's a genre of music entirely about working just the most shitty jobs and not knowing when you'll see your loved ones again

of course everyone's singing sea chanties

hmmm so what is the best way to start docker containers w/ specific config on boot? i feel like a docker-compose invocation in a systemd service is cursed but idk what i'm supposed to do

one of my favourite bits was when i told some blue lives matter evangelical on twitter that once, a cop stopped me, and the archangel michael descended from heaven, blew the cop to fuck, took a toke off my joint, and told me it's okay because cops don't have souls

hierarchy of respect garnered from me:

This was posted on a server that I mod the other day and I hate how it calls me out in so many ways

you stop inflation by banning the profit motive and executing the bourgeoise who disagree, hope this helps :)

@er1n it was a little eye opening when i realized that the reason i tolerated high school food service work so well was that, from my perspective, i was just getting paid to do the dissociating i would have done anyway
