Tonight town seems full of joggers in head torches carrying maps and peering at bollards and substations and things, some sort of treasure hunt is ongoing I guess

Git is planning to switch to SHA-256 soon. This is all great news, but the best thing is the command to convert an existing repo to the new hash. It reads like a shitpost and gets better with each argument:

git convert-repo --to-hash=sha-256 --frobnicate-blobs --climb-subtrees --liability-waiver=none --use-shovels --carbon-offsets

So today has been fucked by interrupts and busy shit so everything was delayed.

But I totally managed to realise I was dreaming last night and got a few seconds of lucidity before I woke up, which was cool. Also there was a hot vampire in my dream.

“With trans people facing daily harassment simply for existing as ourselves, the stakes seem too high to risk teaching these systems how to recognize us”

Made me think of @Tatianamac’s insightful talk, ‘The Banal Binary’ at New Adventures conference…

Today's strange new experience, locking onesself in a lift by accident, then doing it again on purpose.

It's a weird feeling to be in a lift that jolts and stops suddenly and knowing that you can't get out, the first time it happened I was slightly nervous because yeah, not a huge space and suddenly inescapable. Still once I knew how long a reset took on it I was fine locking it again.

Neat form of culture jamming! If Hackers came out today, here's a plausible way to totally fuck up traffic in NY.

"99 second hand smartphones are transported in a handcart to generate virtual traffic jam in Google Maps"

Something I learnt b in therapy, that might help others.

Make active goals.

This means to not set goals on states, but on actions.

For example:

Instead of "I finish this thing" make your goal "I work on this thing today"

Reason is, you can't really control the state, as a lot can come up.

But you can control more that you work on something. And any amount of work would suffice to reach that goal. So even if you work in it for just an hour, it might not be finished, but you worked on it

Tomorrow’s date will be written as an eight-digit palindrome around the world, the first time this has happened in 900 years.

The coincidence is rare because countries use differing conventions. February 2, 2020, is a palindrome whether expressed as day/month/year (02/02/2020), month/day/year (02/02/2020), or year/month/day (2020/02/02).

This happened last on November 11, 1111, and it won’t happen again until March 3, 3030.
