nerd, weirdo, person, whatever. i enjoy bad puns and you will see them. i also like going off on random tangents about tech, movies, or other random things of interest. fun activities include having mental health and flight simulation.

you may enjoy my work on mediawiki & wikipedia, or my wacky webassembly codecs. i hope for a world where computers help people instead of hurting them so much.

hm, no it's probably not about privacy it's probably to get you to log in and maybe buy another thing while there

because posts cannot pass directly through the neutral zone between the federation and the romulan star empire, ad-hoc cross-border info channels have to be constructed via screenshots

@DougWar40k i have to admit, computers are pretty fucking metal

computers are literally made by inscribing magic spells in sand to summon daemons

cat 1: dum dee doo, i'm just being a cat

cat 2: *slowly inches forward then pounces*

expectation: wrestling match

reality: one slow cat-on-cat hug from behind, held for a couple seconds and released peacefully


@mos_8502 yes... ha ha ha... yes!!

@mos_8502 nice :D

according to long-running legend an early version of the Mac (?) UI used "DoIt" instead of "OK" as the default dialog button label but somebody complained the computer was calling them a "dolt"

i do not know if this is true, but i confirmed that others have heard the same legend on a cursory web search
