Hey yo newbies on hackers.town 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 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.

Hi.

Members here who wish to venture into the underworld of Bolthole, our very own invite-only might want to send me a direct message for their very own super secret invite code.

Or not. Whatever.

When they forked LibreOffice from OpenOffice, did anyone propose "Cubicle" as a name?

In my road to learn proper programming, I stumbled upon this great article on the history behind Unicode and its history. Great for newcomers trying to understand character encoding.

Well kinda. 101 north is the usual parking lot. At least I'm not driving.

(Thanks Lyft driver guy for taking one for team Nemesis)

Linux and “open source” in a nutshell, from the horse’s mouth:

“There is a genuine reason to worry. My desktop is free but my data and applications (which run in the cloud) aww not … what do you care about more – just that the code is open or also about the business practices as well?”

Linus Torvalds: “Personally, I only care about the code. When I say maybe there are people who worry about walled gardens and cloud provides who take ownership of your data, I am not one of those people.”

I'm very grateful for the people who helped me yesterday. Today is going to be much better.

Please let the hellthread die before it consumes us all!

No hope. Flee while you can! All shall be devoured!

Live every day like you are a credited but unnamed character who appears in exactly one scene in a David Lynch movie.

I added A Scanner Darkly to the movie list.

It's one of my favorite movies and well... I will leave much unsaid but I hope we can watch it together sometime.

Remember: any drywall wall has a secret doorway if you kick hard enough.
