Pinned toot

Hey yo newbies on 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 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.


I'm overflowing with energy this morning. I want to do PROJECTS! ALL OF THEM!

:godzilla:​ I think I reject AAA video games because I haven't finished Zork yet.

The world should have changed in ways it didn't 25 years. Information can be copied for free. The Old Economy was crammed down our mouths by boomers with vested interested in keeping control.

Their time is ending.

Really looking forward to my fun group video chat this evening after my work group video chats today.

Somehow I found myself looking at pictures of anime ant girls this morning.

This is how it starts, isn't it?

I miss Ursula K Le Guin and Iain M. Banks. Wise in different ways, they saw the whole thing for what it was.

So, we'll go no more a roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

defensively put your shopping cart or shopping basket behind you in the line to enforce some distance. Better with a cart if you can.
