I missed out on last time, so:

I'm a person. I think people and communities and subcultures are pretty interesting. Sometimes I try to archive these things, sometimes I just idly find them fascinating.

I appreciate things that are {open source, secure, well-designed}, most of the people I've met here, and @srn ​in particular.

I like to think I'm trustworthy and available. Feel free to reach out even if I don't know you.

(A few thousand more words available via my profile.)

So apparently the Westphalian Era has nothing to do with Tommy Westphall.

(I vaguely knew this, but somehow one always comes to mind with the other.)

I can't be the only one who finds the recent Western Digital (white) drive labels to be well-designed, can I? They're pretty nice, despite being something that basically nobody is ever expected to see. Clean typography, appropriate barcodes, clear labeling.

Anyway, kudos to whomever designed them, wherever you may be.

@SuricrasiaOnline A local big box electronics store had these on display. I considered trying to buy the whole thing and part it out across the fediverse. (Didn't.)

(I believe this has been the case for a while, possibly back to around Unicode 10 when "person" was introduced, but it's somewhat surprising to see that it's *still* the case, lo these many years.)

The Twitter Twemoji (12.1.3) emoji for "people holding hands" (explicitly not gender-specific) is identical to that of "man and woman holding hands". Hrm. (They do have "person", which is its own non-gendered drawing, just not a pair holding hands.)

vs.
