Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).
I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻
I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

Ow, my back is giving my grief after spending the past couple of days hand-sewing almost nonstop (my mum has a machine but damned if I have anywhere to set that up) and I'm low on needle threaders because WHY THE FUCK DO THEY MAKE THEM SO WEAK?
On the plus side, I just found another bundle of fabric to work with after the last lot ran out.
JFC why do I have so many kettle plugs? o.O
new old stock of this crappy mid 2000s toy now sells for hundreds due to the fact that it has a SoC RF transceiver that can be easily reflashed and used to, among other things, hack security/access control systems
I could totally make my own 9 pin gender changer.
If I had the room to whip it the soldering iron right now.
Correction. A female one. The male kind has the exposed pins.
Regardless, that still doesn't help.
Okay, that's annoying. The Sky box's RS232 port is a male plug. >.<

Popped downstairs for a drink of water, and went to check on my mum's hamster on the way.
Except he couldn't be seen anywhere in his cage.
Until I looked in his little penthouse on top of the cage.
With all the food he dragged from his bowl in the lower cage, through the pipes looping over and under the top of the cage, right into there. O_O
I just disassembled an old alarm clock and the alarm part is literally just a DC motor smacking two equidistant washers against the bell.
