5. It gets better.

It gets better.

I swear to Gods, it gets better.

I didn't think it would, I was so miserable. But it has, beyond my actual pre-transition ability to even imagine.

Don't think about how long it'll take, because guaranteed, it'll take longer than you want it to.

Just keep breathing and doing what it takes to pull through, and life will feel 100% less cursed.

I love you. You got this.

Can't stop thinking about this fortune cookie I got earlier in the week...

COVID Vaccinations in the UK, something helpful I found 

@dzuk thanks for the tip! I didn't get a date for the 2nd, but was able to get an appointment in two weeks and closer to home!


@dzuk I've taken to blending. Especially as my blender is the kind where you can drink and blend in the same container.

Have you tried with aldi oat milk?

@dumpsterqueer argh! Didn't mean to send it yet!

Manual from a shady website.

Had to remove top and sides, but was simple to unbolt and fit new wheels. Not had a problem since 😁

@dumpsterqueer dishwasher. The wheels that the draws run on kept falling off, meaning the draws were a pain to use and sometimes didn't line up with the water bit at the back so stuff didn't get cleaned properly.

Got replacement parts off eBay, and instruction manual from

@vfrmedia sadly yes. I have a bangle.js and the way to edit and push code to the watch is to use a web editor, which pushes over Bluetooth to the watch. Any dependent libraries can be pulled from github (and only github in my testing) and are pulled EVERY TIME you run the code even in the emulator

@DL6MHC very cool! I'm yet to power my HF rig from the solar but I may have to go directly to the battery as it can draw quite a lot of amps on 100w!

@freakazoid I think you have disproven your own point here. People will always take the easiest option, and that is often to learn a little as they go. The learning is also likely to stick better than if you have to learn lots up front and then try to remember it later when stressed.

@m0ofx need one that says "if you are visiting England please wear a mask. Our rules are stupid."

@vfrmedia I bet some has music playing. Just seems like massive double standard to stop a few teenagers hanging out (who probably spend all day together so what risk is this of covid over that?)

That is great fun!

For any trans people who need to hear this:

Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.

Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.

When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.

Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.

Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. ✨​

(cis people please boost)

@DL6MHC @F1RUM let me know if you'd like to try the one I wrote 😀

@kelbot I'm certain some haven't even used the product, let alone physical possession in some cases.

How do you power your raspberry pi zero?
Solar panel to buck regulator to super capacitor to lipo shim is a sensible way, right?
