Pinned toot

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.

Mystery stranger was very generous indeed with Bourbon. Thank you, whoever you are.

So not surprised that Gab-loving Private Internet Access is behind the Freenode takeover.

My favorite Star Wars movie is every single episode of The Mandalorian.

Just watching a Babylon 5 episode written by Neil Gaiman, and starring Penn & Teller.

As you do.

There’s a lot of people wearing n95 masks in this...

I’m watching Robot Jox (don’t judge) and apparently the screenplay was written by Joe Haldeman!

Very happy to see API's protected as fair use.

I just need someone else to do pixel graphics and someone else to do music :blobjoy:

Back on my bullshit of working through Photon’s Amiga hardware demo programming tutorials. This is a lot easier with two displays!

I'm thrilled to finally have hardware-accelerated video playback working on my X5000. Small step in terms of being a "daily driver" but a big step forward for the platform.

:amiga:​ I'm in!

Emotion 1.9 with new video card acceleration from A-EON Enhancer Pack 2.0 running on my X5000.

Fullscreen works nicely too.

I just poured a whole pot of freshly made coffee into the water reservoir of the coffee machine because I was thinking about making a demo.

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.
