Hello everybody!

Been lurking around the fediverse a while, and finally decided to take the plunge via!

Grew up in Tennessee and the Netherlands, now in California, work in the techs and love the spaces (cyber and outer.)

Looking forward to fun times on a better social!

if you've ever wondered what it's like in my head, take a moment to imagine the protypical hamster on a wheel, then imagine hundreds of them

you zoom out, these hundreds of hamsters on wheels are powering a mecha hamster, spinning its own much larger wheel

you zoom out again, there are hundreds of these mecha hamsters, all spinning their own wheels which power a much larger mecha hamster, a mecha mecha hamster if you will

you turn to your companion and say "by jove, how many levels of hamsters could there be?" and she turns and responds to you, insanity buried deep in her eyes, and speaks, "my dear reader, I'm afraid it's hamsters all the way down"

Hot take: Riven is a better game than Myst.

By request, the morning duck parade set to the Imperial March. ° 🦆

Looking forward to this year! But already feeling a little socially anxious.

Sandwiched between a holiday and the weekend, today as been a delightfully low key day at work.

Ok, I seriously love this movie. But for why is the secret entrance to Flynn’s lab behind a Tron arcade machine in the middle of the arcade floor? Seems conspicuous. Like, people wouldn’t notice? Did he have to wait if someone was playing the game? So many questions.

Honestly, I can’t blame people for not liking this movie if they only saw the first 15 minutes, most of the stuff in “the real world” is fairly weak, feels forced. Things don’t get all that interesting until the arcade.

Kinda miss running my own host and hacking around with Django and stuff. Maybe a good spring project? Or I could learn one of those static site generators that everyone seems to like these days.

things I remember about The Computer from 2004:

- had a designated Computer Room
- had to start the computer with a chain like a lawn mower
- took 12 minutes to POST
- had to hand-siphon the internet from a well
- the router screamed at you
- AOL instant messenger
- ASL?

I forgot how much fun Genius playlists are. Like a slightly smarter shuffle-all.
