Pinned toot

I realized that I never wrote my , so here it goes.

I'm a Python programmer working on open source. After hours I do whatever is my current obsession, so far I have gone through: , , , , , miniature , and music, , walking , , , , , , homebrew game handhelds.

I love and (no patience to watch tv/shows).

Unpopular opinion: art has always been done with technology. There shouldn't be a separate category for "technology art". Making your computer output funny fractals is no more innovative than mixing your own paints was back in the Renaissance, or procuring the right stone and chisels in the Antiquity (and figuring out how to transport it all).


Isn't it strange that in times when people seriously believed in magic and magicians, the miracles reportedly performed by Jesus still convinced them of his godhood.

Two years ago I set up a jar of utopenci, and forgot about it. I'm now afraid to open that cabinet and look at it.

Any empire, when denied the spoils of conquest, and the exploitation of its colonies, will inevitably turn on its own citizens.

What do you mean there are no alpacas in the Alps?

No, the Internet is not down. Not even the World Wide Web, a tiny part of the Internet. It's just a few corporate websites that are down. Good riddance.

I don't understand it, how come people pick up a video game and then don't finish it?

So about those High Elves. What exactly are they high on?

When in mortal danger,
When beset by doubt,
Run in little circles,
Wave your hands and shout.
