Good news everyone!

:hacker_b: :hacker_o: :hacker_l: :hacker_t: :hacker_h: :hacker_o: :hacker_l: :hacker_e: is alive!

Please accept my most humble apologies for the delay in getting back to FULLY OPERATIONAL status. I restored to a backup from Feb 18 so I'm sorry if you lost anything important to you.

If you already have an account, please feel to drop by and kick the the bytes around.

I know there's folks who asked for an account. I have a little more work to do on the HTTPS side and then I will try to catch up.

Hey yo newbies on and beyond. Permit me to myself if you will.

I have a 1 in 6 chance of detecting secret doors and a pick lock skill of 10%. I'm probably talking about old-school D&D and totally not .

I enjoy slinging code, especially C and sometimes C++ although I mostly golang for $daygig.

My stack of unfinished projects includes a Mastodon client for the Amiga, a side-scrolling shmup on SDL2, most of the first draft of a bad fantasy novel and so many unfinished CTFs.

I'm also the sysop of
:hacker_b: :hacker_o: :hacker_l: :hacker_t: :hacker_h: :hacker: :hacker_l: :hacker_e:
the experimental BBS for specifically awesome people.

Follow me for vaguely misleading PII, drunkposts about Blondie, Amiga propaganda, cutting the chord with big-tech, silicon valley snark, and a generally bad attitude about the tire-fire that is the modern web.

Rarely lewd but a bit sketchy on CWs.

When it comes to seeing yourself in a movie, if you can't be the hero, then at least try to be the protagonist.

Amazon already knows way too much about my hobbies.

Go is Google's language, not ours

(This shouldn't surprise anyone seeing what Google means by "open source".)

Coworker who is a former Apple repair tech has offered to examine my 2011 MacBook Pro to see if we can fix it. I'm weirdly attached to that one. I managed to negotiate it as payment when a startup was going through a rocky patch.
