welcome friends!

First, you should read our about page: riverside.camp/about/more. This is a work in progress: if something about it bothers you, let's talk about it!

I'd love to schedule a short phone call with each of you. I can tell you about:
- mastodon (if you're not familiar with federation)
- the extra features our server has access to,
- what my goals are in creating this place

I can also walk through the list of everyone on the server and introduce you to folks you don't recognize!

okay I'm making my own budgeting software in https://ziglang.org. over the past few days I have:
- defined the data format for transactions histories (tsv files)
- wrote some generic tools for reading and parsing delimiter-separated files (I call them dsv)
- wrote a parser for transactions
- wrote a tool for parsing an arbitrary dsv string into an arbitrary struct, by defining rules for which columns to map to which fields (including merging columns or using alternate date formats)

I've been thinking a lot about convenience. What is and isn't convenient is such a powerful influence on our lives, and technology plays a massive role in shaping this. It's always been easy for me to notice the things that are difficult that I wish were easy, but the other way around is much harder.

Trying to reflect on what is being made convenient in my life that shouldn't be, and figure out plans for changing that.

The Smithsonian announced today that they have released 2.8 million images into the public domain (CC0 license). In celebration of this I made a bot you can follow that will post one random image from the set every 8 hours:

! It’s been a struggle to be able to feel like myself and to have self-confidence recently, and I haven’t really been able to figure out how to break out of that cycle. It’s making it harder to be creative or flirty or adventurous.

I’m hoping it’ll start getting better when I get away from my terrible roommate in the spring and instead live with the girlfriends
