:VideoNasty:​ Hey Fedi! Lets do another !

I'll be watching Beyond the Black Rainbow and it'd be cool if you'd like to join me.

Come for the benign pharmacology... stay for the energy sculpting. This is trippy sci-fi with some very dark themes.

Thanks to @EdS, I now know about this very cool website dedicated to identifying computers in film and tv!

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.

Listening to the sales-bros argue about whether 2020 is the start of the decade and my mischief for the start of the year is well under way.

(cc @ella_kane )

That's the second mention of Betelgeuse today.

Hope everything is OK up there.

None of my so-called fedi friends are going to make me coffee are you?

A neat little thing that happened at the end of 2019. A good friend of mine (M) recounted meeting a pre-B5 J. Michael Straczynski while my friend was at film school in L.A. Mike and a mutual friend of M apparently worked on a sci-fi radio show togerher. "Mike" actually pitched B5 to my friend M.

I've known M for 14 years, and he just mentioned this in passing before our weekly Invisble Sun RPG session.

2019 has been quite a year. I've met some amazing people from fedi. You know who you are and what you mean to me.

Listening to my very own cyberpunk playlist and nobody can stop me short of an EMP.

I feel like we're rapidly approaching a junction where hobbytech computers are going to be a viable thing again. There really isn't much progress happening at the high end and the capabilities afforded to the hobbyist appear to be catching up to the point where DIY hardware is usable for "modern" tasks.

If I strip away browsing the shitshow that is the resource hogging modern web, and gaming which I do on dedicated and increasingly retro hardware... my compute needs are actually quite modest.

What do you think?

Some things I kinda achieved.

1) setup my AmigaOne X5000 and started the OS 4 port of my Mastodon Client

2) totally disconnected my enjoyment of music from big tech. Standalone music player, buying DRM free digital files, or used/new CDs to rip.

3) re-cased my RPis into a open tower case with active cooling. Started on Ansible-based rebuild.

Well FML here'a other stuff I wanna do.

6) Finally get my A1200 recapped and setup with 3.14 or maybe 3.2

7) BSD on something

Some 2020 tech-independence goals. Trying not to pile my plate up this coming year.

1) Bring Mastodon to Amiga OS4. An ongoing project to complete a Mastodon client.

2) Restore LuckyBytePalace.net and Bolthole BBS to life on new infra

3) Finish my HTPC build, and rip my DVD collection.

4) Home NAS with remote back-up

5) Finish some more overthewire.org CTFs

:amiga:​ A nice AGA for full of glowing plasma and a soundtrack that slides between thumping and chill.

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.
