"It had not been easy to arrange the Council. Since everyone, without exception, had to be given a chance of voting, schedules and duty rosters had to be reorganized and sleep periods disrupted. The fact that half the crew was down on Talassa presented a other problem that had never arisen before - that of security.

Someone on the recommended an experiment where every day, you post a quote from a random book on your shelf. I'm going to try it for a week and see how it feels.

"Every day, pick a random page in the book, copy out a passage from that page, copy it out onto your blog, and write something short on your blog inspired by it. Even just a single sentence is fine. If you're inspired to write more, do, but the success criterion is one sentence."

hey if you or anyone you know is looking for an experienced, self-taught Go or Python developer with a background in Physics or security, I'm your gal!

my professional experience is a little limited, but only due to not being given the chance. i am a very fast learner with a wide array of knowledge already, willing to learn anything to fit into any role

my most recent projects include writing a gopher (yes, that pre-HTTP protocol) server, my own fixed-size LRU hashmap implementation from scratch, and the beginnings of an IRC server. all in Go

boosts are very much appreciated ❤️
