My name is Elizabeth but please call me Lisa.

I'm probably best known as the person who started the #Safari and #WebKit projects at #Apple. You may think you know my deadname but... you don't.

I've drawn underground comics, pioneered using a Mac for newspaper graphics and developed software at Adobe and Netscape.

Now I write video #transcoding scripts and sometimes podcast.

Follow me and I'll fill your timeline with boosts.

Important tip: “does @lisamelton think this piece of news is important?”is often a good heuristic to filter news signals from the noise.

Well technology is transphobic as fuck. I actually was inspired to share my voice for and recorded a voice memo but cannot get the file to post via my app. Sushi and wine is getting warm … maybe I’ll try later

@jessica We would all love you to hear you! Enjoy the fabulous dinner and call me later if you want another noggin to troubleshoot that with you. 💖

Morning fedi-fam! 897+ new messages to wade through in home screen. My follows continue to be US-centric. 😀

(Neither a good nor a bad thing. It’s just what it is)

@aparna It me. ✋ A lot of that is probably my fault. Sorry.

Despite @caroline's version of retro fashion, I'm hereby declaring it . Look, I like cottagecore, that's all*. We stopped by Nordstrom Rack to see if we could find a prom dress for the kid - and they found an absolutely FABULOUS beaded and sequined dress on the clearance rack that fit perfectly. I, meanwhile found this nice brown flowery dress that just kinda works with my hair.

(* Ok, see, my mom gave me fashion advice this morning (that's kind of a funny right there), and she said she thought the tiered cotton gauze skirts I've gotten recently look "frumpy" - and she did give it a little bit of a value judgement there. Everyone else says I look fabulous in them. So I'll take that frumpy label and wear it proudly.)

@storybead Both you and that dress look fabulous! 😍

As to you other wardrobe, I hate to say this, but... don't listen to your mom. 😉

@caroline I lived through the 80s and I can attest that none of us knew how to dress. 🤦‍♀️ But it's a tossup whether it was any better than the 70s. 🤷‍♀️

I liked how I looked today. Felt cute, might forget I posted this at all and so never actually delete later.

@miriamrobern Can confirm cuteness! Also, I love that top. Don't delete it.

I just saw a picture of me from fifteen years ago (wearing a similar sweatshirt to one I own now) and briefly thought, “Where are my boobs?”

@lisamelton@mastodon.social avatar

@risingphoenix Classic! I don't blame you. For thinking that, I mean. For making me spit up coffee while reading your post? Well, that's on you, girl. 😂

Does anybody know where Kass went? Red-headed train track inspector Kass? I haven't seen her for a long-ass time and now I can't find her account.

lisamelton,
@lisamelton@mastodon.social avatar

@miriamrobern I was wondering that too recently! 🤦‍♀️

Please let us all know if you find out. I really hope she's OK and just taking an extended break.

I have been incredibly lucky with my coming out, and I know it. Apart from my ex-wife's initial reaction, I have been met with nothing but support and acceptance. In some occasions, it goes even beyond that, and that acceptance comes with a dollop of kindness and love on top.

Take today, for example. I was feeling under the weather so I called in sick and went to the doctor. My GP was busy so I had to go to another doctor in the clinic, to whom I had to explain the discrepancy between my presentation and the name and gender in my file. After he asked me about HRT, he added that he had a lot of respect for trans people because he couldn't imagine how hard it must be to take this step and asked how I was feeling about it and what my experience had been like so far.

A bit later, picking up the 3-year-old at the creche, there was only one teacher left, a very sweet and friendly one who has babysat the kids a few times and is the closest to us there. She apologised that she hadn't spoken to me all week, but she was always busy when I was there, and she really wanted to tell me how much she admired and respected what I had done. Also, she said she and another teacher remarked how much happier I seemed now and that that in turn made her very happy. ♥️ I ended up staying a bit longer to talk to her about transition and, well, just girly things in general.

I am truly blessed. I never imagined when I started coming out that this path would have had so much starlight illuminating it. I know there will be transphobia and some bad moments in the future, but when they do happen I can take solace in all the kindness I have received so far. This is how it should always be.

@portugeek Wow! That is fantastic, sister! I'm so glad you're getting such kindness and affirmation. 😊🥰💖

And, yeah, this is how it should always be. 🏳️‍⚧️

Watching all the heartthrob actors from my teens now playing parents of teens and rapidly turning into a skeleton like the guy in The Last Crusade

@rooster Ouch! The heartthrob actors from my teens are already skeletons. And have been for quite awhile! 😬

Don't mind me, I'll just crawl back into my crypt. 🤦‍♀️

It's !

Still no prompts because still no spare time to make them. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel, so maybe I'll have spare time and bandwidth again in about a month! Wheee!!!

lisamelton,
@lisamelton@mastodon.social avatar

@miriamrobern You sound great, girl! Completely femme and sweet. 🔊💖 And I'm glad you have the dumpster fire in the rear window now. Don't worry about the prompts. We're all a bunch of renegades and never quite follow them anyway. 😂

I’ve been on phone w Verizon all this time. Mr. Laffy’s been on with them for 2 1/2 hours on his phone, been disconnected 2x, being sent to diff numbers which lead him back to the original. We were JUST told that oops! They don’t cover the Internet connection! Frontier does! Wrong number, folks! So Mr. Laffy called Frontier. Guess what? Frontier’s tech support is not working today! GAAAAA!

He’s now calling again & trying a different extension. So, covering is, well, on hold. 🤬🤦🏻‍♀️

lisamelton,
@lisamelton@mastodon.social avatar

@GottaLaff Yikes! 😬 So sorry, sweetie. 🫂

We, of course, will miss you today but don't make yourself crazy on our account. Enjoy the day and maybe even get some outside time with Hammy. 💖

Just a few days ago. She was so happy to run as always.

We are still waiting to to hear from the vet on her current status. But it brings me joy to know she was happy and healthy until the end.
