I'm trans

I'm writing this post to publicly come out as trans (specifically: I wish to transition to become a woman).

This post won't be as polished or edited as my usual posts, because that's kind of the point: I'm tired of having to edit myself to make myself acceptable to others.

I'm a bit scared to let people know that I'm trans, especially because I'm not yet in a position where I can transition (for reasons I don't want to share, at least not in public) and it's really shameful. However, I'm getting really

How to setup a practically free CDN using Backblaze B2 and Cloudflare

⚠️ Note 2023-01-21
Some things have changed since I originally wrote this in 2016. I have updated a few minor details, and the advice is still broadly the same, but there are some new Cloudflare features you can (and should) take advantage of. In particular, pay attention to Trevor Stevens' comment here from 22 January 2022, and Matt Stenson's useful caching advice. In addition, Backblaze, with whom Cloudflare are a Bandwidth Alliance partner, have published their own guide detailing how to use Cloudflare's Web Workers to cache content from B2 private buckets. That is worth reading,

'Users hate change'

This week NN Group released a video by Jakob Nielsen in which he attempts to help designers deal with the problem of customers being resistant to their new site/product redesign. The argument goes thusly:

  1. Humans naturally resist change
  2. Your change is for the better
  3. Customers should just get used to it and stop complaining

There's slightly more to it than that, he caveats his argument with requiring you to have of course followed their best practices on product design, and allows for a period of customers being able to elect to continue to use the old site, although he says this is obviously only a temporary solution as you don't want to support both.

The relational interpretation of Lojban (la brismu)

0: Introduction

This pamphlet is addressed at folks who know Lojban. They've read not just a tutorial like la karda, the Crash Course, or the Wave Lessons, but also CLL and the BPFK Sections, and some of the various notes from many community members.

I am not aiming to teach the syntax of Lojban, but to radically and fundamentally approach the logical foundations of the semantics of Lojban. We will not start with pronouns, but with relations, and we will always keep the mathematics in mind as we progress.

A common theme in the Lojban community is an uncertainty about what words mean. Since words are treacherous and don't have ultimate meaning, and many Lojbanists are philosophers, it is predictably common for such uncer
