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

Update: Currently learning because I don't wanna do anymore.

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

I had a weird encounter with a shifty dude in a leather trench coat in downtown Santa Cruz, CA. He was prowling around as if hustling. He asked partner and I if we knew where to get pizza.

Passed him walking a few minutes later near the pizza place. He didn’t have pizza.

My favorite era of cinema is precisely the time when Gary Oldman was every villain.

Ukraine invasion 

Just saw the vehicle my colleague's fundraiser was able to buy for a unit in Ukraine.

This is how we win.

I might need to find a programming language I actually like.
