linux, catgirls, anime eye contact as filtered through monospace text, programming 

once upon a time (yesterday) @ln wrote that, if ps(1) shows processes on Linux, then pspsps shows catgirls

as a result, I made this.

it is a bit of overkill I'm afraid, but welp, Mommy is back to the softwares I guess 🤷‍♀️

github.com/melissaboiko/pspsps

programming, python 

it's funny cos I was doing in this (my "distraction") exactly precisely the same thing I was doing in parallel at the same time: programming, in Python, more on the glue and document and refactor side than actual calculations, and teaching self to do type annotations. on both fronts.

went much easier with the catgirl code ofc, cos it only really get into other people's vibes by the end, after I've done all the network stuff and the terminal feature detection stuff. with my "serious" code, the whole thing is geared towards fitting what Pony ORM needs. alas, Mypy dislikes Pony, like, a lot. all the problems you can imagine with dynamic inference, dynamic classes etc. Pony has all of them, and the mypy checker hates its guts.

@elilla @ln what font is that on the top left denoting which workspace your on? Is that DWM?

re: linux, catgirls, anime eye contact as filtered through monospace text, programming 

@Agris @ln this is bspwm running polybar, and the font is Iosevka, the best monospace font in the world, in the SS05 "Fira" variant :)

@elilla i'm not sure how seriously you should take this as a bug report, but... if you set your font size to the point where your terminal displays 398x219 characters, it takes a very long time indeed to resize the image ;-)

@thamesynne I noticed! ^.^ I don't think there’s anything we could do on our side – it’s the time the terminal emulator takes to render all the coloured characters. So I chose to just enjoy the "90s Internet" experience of seeing the anime catgirl slowly loading top to bottom :3
