Hiya! I'm nichobi, a university student and Haskell/Scala programmer and open-source enthusiast. I love functional programming and most develop terminal applications and utilities for my Linux devices.

So happy to read this quote as I had the suspicion more than anyone. “To have to design something as good as Downwell” has been a curse to me ever since it’s release! I can’t get over confident just yet but I do think the thought won’t haunt me as much as I go onto my next one 😌 twitter.com/devolverdigital/st

So far my record is just above 20 wpm, on the very easiest difficulty of my tutor, which only consists of the 8 keys on the home row. Long way to go!

After many days of umming and ahing about what keyboard layout to choose, I finally decided to go with Colemak (with DH-mod). Now I just need a few weeks of practice to learn to type on it...

As it turns out, watercolor cats might be my true calling 🐾

Since last year I have taken up reading again, working my way through chance discoveries and suggestions. If you have any recommendations, in whatever genre, I'd be happy to hear them! You can find me on the wonderful Mastodon-compatible Bookwyrm.

I'm also a dabbling ASCII-artist, mostly drawing animals but also whatever else strikes me! You can find my ever expanding document at ascii.nichobi.com to follow my journey from first doodles to proper drawings I can be proud of.

I can highly recommend @bookwyrm if you do any reading. It's a fantastic book tracking platform, already miles better than Goodreads in many ways (and of course Amazon-free, open source and federated!).
There's a few features I'm still missing, but the development pace is fast and the quality of implemented features is very high. I love it!

📚 It's a delight to have new folks coming into BookWyrm and the Fediverse!

I'm pleased to note that even dolphin.town, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

One of my favourite authors, Kristian Lundberg, has passed and I'm crushed. I had to read Yarden in high school, and it changed everything for me. It taught me books could be more than just entertainment and reignited the joy of reading

Annoyed I created my Mastodon account in that brief period in-between coming up with the name NichoBI and deciding to write it all lowercase
