Chibi is boss. Bring her her coffee. Bring her her squeaky ball. Type up her homework. Bossy. Bossy. Boss dog.

Hi!! Happy !!

I’m Nicole (she/her). I manage mobile engineering for the Pocket products at Mozilla. My previous incarnations were as an iOS developer, an attorney, a CGI enthusiast, and an aspiring horror makeup artist (I never wanted to be an astronaut).

I originally hail from , , but reside in the these days.

I think it’s really interesting that my oldest, dearest childhood friend is also . Coming out to each other was super special.

Watching Star Trek Voyager and thinking Starfleet cheaped out on the budget for tablets and got some random no name Chinese ODM crap. I mean look at those bezels. No wonder they're using stacks of the things, they've probably got a few GB of storage, with barely anything left after the OS and undoubtedly large amount of uninstallable bloat apps. Why hasn't B'Elanna rooted them yet? You know that's what the Maquis would do.

Plucked from the archives.

Spotted this bit of overgrowth taking a roundabout way to visit @pauline one day.

It took a few passes under different weather conditions over 1-2 months before I was able to capture what I wanted in-camera.

I fantasize about going back and exposing some 4x5 sheets, but I’d need to set up in the middle of the road, right after a tight turn. Photographers die for dumb like that.

I think this one would be fun to print very large.

Shameful to see the College Board cave to the demands of DeSantis and white supremacists, especially as we kick off Black History Month. Just shameful.

I’m scheduled for Orchiectomy next week and I’m super excited, but I just got my cost estimate and it’s going to be $8,500 😱

So if you want to help a trans girl out, I have my Venmo and Cash App on Link.tree linktr.ee/danirabbit 💕

Anything helps. Thank you!

Oh, gods, this table read. 🥰

Back in the Before Time, I was an occasional camera operator at the Community Cable Corporation. The control room and headset chatter in these videos gave me flashbacks.

That’s something I haven’t thought about in 30 years. Good feels. 😊

Of all the vermin that have menaced our vegetable garden over the years, this one is the most infuriatingly cute.

Seeing a *lot* of laid off/position eliminated posts lately, and it's just... it's disgusting. What kind of logic is it to see a recession looming, so you cut people, who then have to scramble to find a new income, try to keep their housing and necessities going, do you think they've got any money left to pump into the economy to satisfy the 'endless growth' fantasy of corporations?

You can't fix a house fire by pouring gasoline on it, and you can't fix a recession by gutting jobs en masse either.

Where are the news articles about the executive class taking cuts to their pay and bonuses?

A right-wing Australian politician seems to be getting in on the MAGA act by calling for straight people to get their own flag and parade. Why, you ask? For "preventing human extinction." 🙄

Yes, because heterosexuals are the true victims.

Basic models of flocking behavior are controlled by three simple rules: 1) separation: avoid crowding neighbours (short range repulsion); 2) alignment: steer towards average heading of neighbors; 3) cohesion: steer towards average position of neighbors (long range attraction). With these three simple rules, the flock moves in an extremely realistic way.
