I just realised my intro went when my instance crashed all those months ago.

Anyhow, hello (again) I am developer and a programmer including and I write stuff in and

Besides my interests include bike riding, or and reading, mostly There is also a starting interest in

My day job is a senior working on some very large and strange computer networks.

The big surprise of the Web is that hypertext became *decoupled* from Object Oriented Programming.

In the 80s both Hypertext and OOP were the two emerging new paradigms, and so you look at these systems like HAM and they all assume that hypertext is gonna be OOP-shaped, that it will all be links between objects.

tvtropes, the great fan argument settler...

Super weight: Star Trek Q continuum, type 6 (of -1 to 7). That's right up there, though Q (John Delancie) varies from type 1 (when depowered) to a high 5 or a 6 when in good graces with the continuum.

New Horizons and Voyager 1 data seems to indicate that there is some kind of hydrogen wall at the edge of the solar system. That’s...super weird??

Real things ive heard as a lefty:

"How can you write and draw with your left hand?! Doesn't it feel weird?!"

"if you're left-handed, that means you're SINISTER, lol. Did you know that?"

"So you must be good at sports, right?"

"you're left-handed!"

have the worst of both worlds: URIFinger

I was promised a dystopian future controlled by a suave European Illuminati who made classical Greek allusions in their nanotech human-enhancement frameworks and named their Internet protocols after late medieval Roman Catholic theologians

instead we got 4chan and, I guess, coming up any day, the Pepe Protocol and Lulz Implants
