Pinned toot


software hacker who loves diving into code and creating way too many side projects. day job is writing open source software, mainly for cloud infrastructure projects.
on a personal level, i love music, listening to and making. some of my absolute favs: grateful dead, frank zappa, phish. i also do a fair bit of online gaming.
i'm exploring mastodon as my social media journey continues. i really dig the social and technological implications of mastodon and want to join the community =)

Such is the life of a hobby project...
Almost 5 years to the day: a 0.1.0 release 😁

if you are looking for something tech related to watch this saturday, the OKD community is hosting a free installation and testing workshop. OKD is the community edition of OpenShift, built on top of Fedora CoreOS. i will have a very small part to play in the day, but it should be fun for all (for a value of fun that includes an interest in distributed systems XD).

something that has fascinated me recently is the notion of software development as a lens into absurdist art. i'm still condensing my thoughts, but i've created my first project in my new absurdism phase XD

I'm really surprised no one in the late 20th century made a DOS distribution called ZarDOS, with Sean Connery's Zed as the logo.

i attended the Chaos Carnival last week, here are my thoughts on the conference and some talks:

@mikew i love Pixel Monster Bot, thank you for sharing it!

i do have a couple questions

1. is it open source?
2. what is the license on the images created? (eg are we allowed to re-use/remix the monsters)

There is a computer disease that anybody who works with computers knows about. It's a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is that you 'play' with them!

— Richard P. Feynman

A lot of online bios (I think I did this also, at some point) follow the cliché non sequitur: A, A, B; with A being a high-level endeavour or noble pursuit and B a, seemingly at odds, interest that supposedly provides a comic effect due to implicitly being as important to the person as A. For instance:

- Philosophy, Quantum mechanics, cooking
- Literature, human rights, cycling
- Cancer research, digital freedom, pokemon
