It's about time for me to do an #introduction I guess.
I am NO CARRIER. I am an old hacker, mostly active in the 90s. I sometimes wax philosophical about hacker lore and old networks. I used to love x.25 systems, and now I find the same enjoyment exploring radio and satellite. My particular obsession is "dead satellites," appealing to both my sense of wonder and the macabre.
My day job is as a game designer and developer and writer of interactive fiction. I work on the road full time, doing part time work managing/maintaining/building mesh networks. Right now, I'm in the Sonoran Desert, where the skies are clear and the vegetation is trying to kill you. My favorite places are Tucson, AZ. and Los Angeles, CA. My least favorites are San Francisco, CA. and Fredericksburg, VA.
I spent a whole decade, blessed to be a professional musician, playing in goth and industrial bands on the East Coast in the late 90s/2000s. I recorded my first E.P. in 2003. It is terrible and you haven't heard it, and that's ok.
I hosted several radio shows (rock, goth/industrial, punk) on regional radio in 2005-2010 and even got to produce a political talk show for a year. I still occasionally put together a podcast in the style of my old radio shows.
I speak terrible Japanese.
I studied Astronomy and Visual Art (separately) in university. My favorite ongoing side area of study is history.
I identify with villains, not because I share their values, but because they are the heroes of their own stories, maligned by the creative whims of both the artist and audience. My favorite heroes are Strahd von Zarovich, Evil Spock, Grodd, and Dr. Evil.
In addition to video games, I also enjoy table top games, especially old RPGs.

How is the wifi situation on #pinephone with the various images?
