I am crafty, and love to knit, spin yarn, and sew. I also love growing our own food.

Music-wise, I listen to a lot of metal these days. My fave bands are Mastodon, Gojira and Between the Buried and Me but I love keeping up with new stuff too.

I live on land stolen from the Wurundjuri people, and believe that reconcilation should begin with treaty.

My account is locked but request a follow - unless you're a TERF or bigot, in which case you can get fucked.

I live with migraine and while not chronically ill, my attack frequency is defined as episodic - which means between 8-15 days per month. This means I don't qualify for a range of subsidised medication. As a result, I got organised and am on the board of Australia's only migraine patient organisation and am an advocate.

Pop-culturally, I love sci-fi (esp The Expanse) and am on the edges of the A Song of Ice and Fire fandom.

I'm a PhD student in Melbourne, Australia. I work on localising the Sustainable Development Goals in rural areas, and my sub-fields range from human geography and scenario development through to large scale dynamic modelling.

I'm a first gen Australian white cis woman with Hungarian heritage. My partner @cefiar and I are guardians of two ageing tortoiseshell burmese cats named Salome and Chrissy and we toot pics of them using

I have decided it's time to fix the way-too-large-for-me dress that I made probably 3 years ago. I've just unpicked all of the questionable alterations I made back then and I'm now pretty tempted to tear it all down and start again, not in the least because my sewing technique has improved a lot.

Book opinion 

I just finished reading Come Tumbling Down by Seanan Mcguire. It's the first thing I've read by her and... I don't get the hype around her writing? It felt clumsy and lurched from POV to POV, and I struggled to care about any of the characters. Maybe I was expecting more from someone so frequently award-nominated but mainly I was disappointed.

Oh no, I take that back. I downloaded the entire git repo and now I can open them.

Or maybe not, since all the code is in notebooks and I can't open them.

Ok, supervisor 2 has shared his code for doing the same data visualisation as I'm trying to do so hopefully things should go more smoothly now.

I celebrated the end of lockdown by going to the physio.

...I just don't understand what any of these error messages *mean*.

So far my experience of trying to run code in Python is mostly one of frustration. I practically never have to shut down my whole RStudio session when something goes wrong, meanwhile I've had to do it three times with Spyder in the last 15 minutes.

Fortunately I didn't commit anything to git after I ran that code and it crashed.

Final count, 569K items being deleted from inside my git repo, I don't know how many Gb that is but in excess of 33. This is probably my fault for writing bad code but jesus.

Currently deleting the temp folders, we're at 33Gb and still counting.

OMG it's worse than that. It's sort of fractally replicated itself because it's replicated the whole git repo, including the folder containing the replicated git repos....

Ah, it's that python code I was trying to run yesterday. It's replicated my entire git repository about 20 times as temp files :blobcat_thisisfine:

Oh excellent. Apparently due to some permissions bullshit, I can't run this code on the server.

Hey Melbourne , we were talking about going to see Dune in early December at the Dandenong drive in during last week's Sunday movie.

Work, marking 

And my supervisor told me that he's released the marks for all the third year assessment tasks I marked and no-one has complained yet!

Well my test code is still running on the server and now I'm ready to rewrite the code to be slightly more complex (but assuming the test works, I can run it over the weekend and not care how long it takes).
