Hm. I'm weird about food lately. I had Pizza for dinner. Am hungry again but brain says too soon for more pizza and the sight/smell of it is currently unappealing. Is this a #spectrum thing?
I feel like it might be.
What is autism? Can you tell for sure if someone is on the #spectrum? And are the examples we see in the media an accurate representation of #autistic individuals? "I believe part of the reason it took me 31 years to discover I’m autistic is that I didn’t have an accurate understanding of what autism REALLY is."
i like free software 😃👍🏻

Major Spectrum phone outage in the Texas valley (going on 2nd day). Spectrum support says 3rd party WindStream fiber line was “catastrophically” cut, affecting backbone VOIP services. No ETR. Inbound callers get “call cannot be completed at this time.” message. Outbound calls still work. Outage mainly affects calls originating from cell phones. #spectrum #spectrumoutage
Echoes of Identity: Kripke's Insight on the Linguistic Evolution of Disability and Neurodiversity Labels
Saul Kripke's "Naming and Necessity" provides a profound framework for this exploration, arguing that names carry the essence of the objects or concepts they represent. This philosophy becomes particularly significant when we examine the evolution of labels in the context of disability and neurodiversity.
— Shared since many trans people are somewhere on the #spectrum.
What does it mean to be #asexual?
Apologies to my brethren on the #spectrum, but I think it’s pretty accurate.
Social Media is a fairly lawless place peppered with disinformation and political and fiscal schemers looking for the next dupe. And porn sales. I’m thinking of #Xitter for example.
But it’s also the minds and feelings of modern humanity. More like #Mastodon.

A really gorgeous first light spectrum of the Planetary Nebula NGC 7027, the Jewel Bug Nebula, from the IGRINS-2 instrument on NOIRLab's Gemini North Observatory.
The bright lines come from gas in the nebula that only emits at very specific wavelengths of light. They have a V-shape because of NGC 7027’s expanding gas bubble, with some gas moving towards us and some gas moving away from us along our line of sight.
`Triplex detection of a metallacarborane using the B−H stretch... together with a bis-alkyne & deuterated fatty acid can be achieved within the cell-silent region of the #Raman spectrum. When coupled to imaging in the high-wavenumber region of the cellular Raman #spectrum, 9 discrete regions of interest can be #spectrally unmixed from the #hyperspectral SRS dataset, demonstrating a new capability in the toolkit of multiplexed Raman #imaging of live #cells.`

So, my day went sideways thanks to our local ISP #Spectrum technician. Client sets up an upgrade to their service. The tech looks at the network gear, and clearly decides: "Nope - not touching that!" So instead of swapping out the old modem with the new one (it was DEAD center on the wall), he decides to set the cable modem and router by themselves on a nearby shelf. But he needs power - so he unplugs the UPS from the only outlet, and... plugs the UPS *INTO ITSELF* #MSP #InfoTech #ISP #SysAdmin
I wonder how long Spectrum/ Charter/ TWC/ TPTB are going to keep the networking down *this* time. They brought it back up long enough to tell me they'd fixed it, and it then immediately went back out. They've predicted 2 hour outages each time. 🤬
If you're in the area & are having issues, please complain. It'll keep me from doing stupid things. It might even get service back sooner....
Goodness is #Spectrum greedy. First they lie about the service I get, then they promise a refund on the installation, then they lie about that refund and charged me anyway, and now that I am canceling the service mid cycle (because I have new internet), they will not prorate me for the remaining time of the month.
Seriously, don't ever get services with them as they will not go out of their way for you.
I find their discussion on what precisely is the #horror in MR James’ #stories very illuminating (and fun). They’re really onto something when they discuss #MRJames and the all male, cloistered and academic context of the stories as having strong repressed homosexuality vibes, veering into #incel territory, but I think of James more in terms of a-sexuality, of someone on the #acearo #spectrum (esp. I don’t read his ghosts as highly gendered, he even uses the term “indeterminate personage”.

While #House #Republicans are hailing Johnson as a #unifying #force for their fractured #party, the #Speaker’s unique brand of #evangelical #conservatism places him at the #farright of the #GOP #spectrum.
Using brilliantly precise experimental work, he recognized the black body #spectrum had a shape he could explain mathematically. It required what we would now call #quantization, a distribution over distinct states. In one evening, he found a way to derive that formula from the #physics
It was not a matter of quantizing and finding it worked; quite the reverse. The analysis did in fact start from the conclusion.
I miss the joy and wonder of using a computer for the first time.
I loved my ZX81 and then spectrum.
Whilst my friends were playing games on it. I taught myself to program it, first in ZX Basic and then into Machine Code.
Lost whole weekends just coding away... good times.

#Spectrum announces they will no longer provide #cable TV services over their cable lines, using them exclusively for #Internet and video #streaming. Among other things, this means an end to franchise fees paid to cities and counties unless the law changes, which is a significant hit to public budgets and general funds and likely the end of government, educational and public access TV in Spectrum-served areas. https://cordcuttersnews.com/spectrum-is-ditching-traditional-cable-tv-is-going-streaming-only-for-new-tv-customers/

My son is attending the MN Renaissance Faire with a local neurodivergent group. I’m separate but available if needed.
I was here 20y ago when he was 4. Now I recognize the largest spectrum gathering I’ve ever seen. I’m really hoping this works for him.

" #Wayland security context protocol is how the compositor will know
which #VM is responsible for which Wayland client, which will allow us to
make per-VM policy decisions. crosvm is the part of #Spectrum’s stack
that can give this information to the compositor, so we need it to
implement this protocol."
We're not there yet, but it may be a reality in commercial #kitchens in the near future.

For #SciArtSeptember Day 7: indigo a little story of analogy & bias in the most famous physicist of all. My lino block print is inspired by the earliest colour wheel, made by Isaac Newton. When he first split white light in 1665 into the rainbow spectrum of colours, he named & described what he saw as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet (often denoted ROY G BIV).

fuck #Spectrum. after my mom died, IN PUERTO RICO, they started spamming me, HERE IN NEW YORK CITY, with "cable deals" for her.
Internet has been out since about 12pm today.
Spectrum will be here at 10am Thursday(again) to possibly fix it.
AT&T will be here at 2pm Thursday to install our new 5Gb up/down Internet.
I've decided I'm leaving Spectrum after 18 months with them.
1Gb for $105.00 a month at Spectrum.
5Gb for $160.00 a month at AT&T.
Seems like an easy decision.

@internet_ginger I am on the #spectrum myself so I've been underestimated all of my life. I've learned to embrace the status of being underestimated because it makes the bar for success low. I use the #neurotypicals behavior towards me to my advantage.
Your use of the word "infantilized" is quite on target. Ironically, I see more infantile behavior of users in front of computers. I do IT support for a living and it's amazing how I hear adults whine like 5 year olds. I've learned to sit in silence, ignore them, and wait until they finish their temper tantrum. It doesn't go over well most of the time because they want me to be actively sympathetic. It's a good thing I am a state employee and all they can do is whine but when push comes to shove the problem is solved and that is all that really matters.
Yeah, I am jaded in my old age.

“The Skye Bridge (Scottish Gaelic: Drochaid an Eilein Sgitheanaich) is a road bridge over Loch Alsh, Scotland, connecting the Isle of Skye to the island of Eilean Bàn. The name is also used for the whole Skye Crossing, which further connects Eilean Bàn to the mainland across the Carrich Viaduct. The crossing forms part of the A87.”
This was my view from the bridge as I passed over it last evening on my way home.

Someday, when we are all free to be who we are… ☁️☂️🌈. I used genuine amethyst pigment in my recipe for the clouds, a healing crystal 💎 it shimmers ever so slightly. Close ups to come.
“Spectrum” 14 × 20” pure watercolor, available. I will be doing a very limited edition print run of this on watercolour paper, so reach out now if you’re interested.
The Pawn was originally written for the QL. Anita Sinclair explains why it was an easy choice: "Because they were free ... Clive gave us a whole pile of QLs, and so we could use them to develop this game". https://markhardisty.wordpress.com/2020/04/14/the-classic-adventurer-interviews-anita-sinclair-the-ql-sir-clive-and-tony-rainbird/ #Speccy #retrogaming #Sinclair #QL #ZXSpectrum #Spectrum #ThePawn

In "Everyone Is a Drawer", the theme surrounded the idea of perspective. In this post, I talked about what goes into our frame of focus with respect to disabilities and the spectrum of ability. https://beflagrant.com/blog/dis-ability-2023-04-06
@paularmstrong Exactly. The team around Adobe's #Spectrum libraries must have put massive amount of work to built them. We built our design system components on the top of aria and stately hooks while taking a lot of inspiration from the architecture as well.
Honestly, we'd never be able to build so concise and feature-full UI library without them. Just looking at the code needed for e.g. Calendar considering also i18n is impressive.
Thanks @devongovett et al.!
