I never did a real introduction on here, so here goes...
I am a former criminology academic, although I do what I can to stay up on current research for it. Despite nodding my head in agreement to the Unix-Haters Handbook, I am an avowed Unix fan. My current and long-time Unix of choice is macOS. I'm trying to fit Linux into my life, but am sure what role it can play for me.
My main hobbies include programming, reading, and relaxing with computer games.
Myst in VR is what I have been wanting since the original release.
With 1Paswword’s transition entirely to a subscription model, I guess it’s time to find a new password manager. The Electron Mac app wouldn’t have been a deal-breaker, but it’s some extra salt on the wound.
1Password was 2 years shy of making my list of software that I’ve used for over a decade. Oh well.
"Fundamentally I think C trusts developers while C++ trusts compilers. This is a massive difference that sharing the same native types or syntax for while loop cannot hide."
Every week when I update everything I have installed with Homebrew, I am reminded that while I appreciate it's defaults and how it functions overall, I wish it was not this huge behemoth of a Ruby application. 'brew update' takes way too long to run and tell me what all has been updated.
Upgrading itself at least works fast enough at least.
Nova, the new web development application from Panic that is a "sequel" to Coda, is pretty spiffy. I don't dive too heavily into web stuff anymore, preferring to just sync Markdown files that get passed through a simple HTML template. But this makes me want to take on a bigger project, just to justify keeping it around.
Reminds me of how much fun it was when I first tried Coda back in the day.
The most barest of bare bones #gemini client for iOS. But my first foray into doing anything network related is at least a success.
Tons more to do yet though.
Expected action on their part, but they moved faster than I thought they would.
Started working on a #gemini client for iOS. Since I've never touched networking of this type before, I'm having to learn a bit as i go, but it's turning into a fun little project.
Virtual reality is pretty experimental right now, and I love it. It reminds me of the earlier days of PC gaming when games were more experimental and no single formula was found to be the way to do things. So many novel ideas that might not stick around for long, but it's fun to experience everyone figuring out what works and doesn't work.
My doctor says that I have a malformed public-duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fibre, and that I am therefore excused from saving Universes.
