Hey yo newbies on hackers.town and beyond. Permit me to #reintroduction 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 #infosec.
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
the hackers.town 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.
Find you some religion.

Right now my concern is our idiot in chief is itching to turn this into a wedge issue.
Simply, the major cities and the states which contain them, which are mostly Democrat voting, are to blame for the pandemics there. Virtuous rural Red states are not to blame and so will be encourage not to lockdown because the situation is overblown by the media.
All he cares about is his fucking popularity with his toxic, bigoted, willfully-ignorant base. That and the stock market, of course.
Internet bad-boy, weirdo, actual porn star, time traveler, script-kiddie and cyberpunk wannabe.
Host of #DemoSunday whenever I feel like it!

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.
