The phrase "mech suit" is the bane of my existence.
Mecha was always a very broad category and but "mech suit" has single handedly destroyed all distinction. It has made it so hard to describe what I'm building.
If I tell someone I'm building a mecha will they think Gundam or Iron Man? People call both things "mech suits." Do they think mobile suits are human sized suits of armor that you wear like Iron Man? It's so frustrating.
Does anyone have any clues on the origin of the word fushamaguts?
I don't know if that's the correct spelling but it's pronounced like foo as in foot + sh + uh + muh + goods but with a t instead of a d.
My grampa used to say it a lot. It's like saying "fudge" instead of saying the F word, except three syllables longer and extremely Great Depression era NYC.

That's half of a smartphone keyboard case that I cut up to use as a tiny USB keyboard. The computer it's hooked to is smaller than a box of Tic Tacs. This is just unbelievable. It's rediculous. I love it. I have no idea what I'm doing. I think I need to get another micro SD card and SSH into the RPi Zero to install the drivers for the hat but who knows.

countering misinformation spread by transphobes with citations
Keeping a little list of pinned research citations to keep on hand for the purposes of countering misinformation spread by "gender critical"/TERF/general transphobes
Luckily a google search turned up a reddit user who already put together a nice list of citations which works well for this. It's multiple studies on the reduction of suicidal ideation with acceptance and transitioning, handy for when well meaning or outright dishonest individuals use the suicide rate to justify their opposition to the very treatments shown to reduce suicide ideation:
