intro, selfie 

Hi. Coming from elsewhere in the Fediverse, but I've already got the hackers town swag.

I'm a software developer who cares about individual privacy, free software, systems safety, procgen art+music, tea, mechas, and recently motorsports. I get paid well to do the first thing, specifically building and scaling the back end for a "download my data" system, hereafter referred to as "the SQL query factories".

Probably splitting time between here and my other account @rrix until I decide where to stay. :crash:

Motorsports, NASCAR 

NASCAR and IMSA are both doing iRacing stuff now, what fun

Motorsports, NASCAR 

It's just "go left"

Yes but...

It's just go left perfectly for four hours while everyone next to you is trying to do it better than you while a multi-day strategy game is playing out in the background. Tuning, pit strategy, etc. 2mph off pace across a few hours is a lap down. You cannot fuck up.

This is the allure of endurance racing for me. Exquisite craft at the edge of your performance threshold.

Been a while since I watched NASCAR on a Sunday... m.twitch.tv/podiumesports

Covid's created some really remarkable things, like a bunch of Motorsports athletes doing esports. Just watched Lando Norris run a 30 lap Australian GP with his chat acting as race engineer.

Been spending the lockdown period watching Stand Alone Complex while trying to get my weird Emacs OS running on this 7" computer, the GPD Pocket 2.
