"In case I am not the person you wanted, here are links to other persons with similar names."

This is some serious old school website.

It seems that building the docs is often harder than building the program.

"This was a Sunday comic from over 30 years ago. We've had plenty of time to do better."


After yesterday's UN biodiversity report I can't help but be reminded of this eternally on-point comic

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
