I have to ho to the gym though I really just want to lie down.

Well, my home Internet access is down...the company can't send a technician until Friday. 😞

Hi everyone!

Just joined SDF's mastodon yesterday. I'm a systems programmer currently in the Bay area working at Twitch. Also a ham though not very active: kl0hp.

Normal people are so freaking helpless with technology.

And they definitely don't know how to provide enough information for troubleshooting.

I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!
