Pinned toot

Hi fediverse!

I'm a developer from , trying to rediscover my online voice. I've been away from social media since I quit Facebook some six years ago. Feels like I forgot how to post online. πŸ˜†

You can check out a blog that I'm starting at qua.name/antolius. I'd also like to hear of exciting books you've come across lately. Or you can just toot your thought on the latest Star Trek trailer at me.

Love the fresh feeling of setting up a new dev machine.

Truck carrying gaming dice spills on Atlanta highway, rolls an estimated 756,000

"The truck was undamaged, having made its saving throw."

Listening to Orconomics and it just did something !

When perspective switched to Orcs talking among themselves all dialog was read twice, first in Orcish and then overlayed with English voice-over. The effect was really cool, and left me curious how it was handled in the original written form.

I like to find this kind of little examples of clever use of the medium that wouldn't be possible in other formats.

Received a positive feedback on a test run of incident management I've been working on. Scheduled another session for Friday.

Getting payed to role-play, it feels good. Bit of a pressure to deliver, though.

7 hours of back to back meeting at work today. Can't say I'm looking forward to this.

Back from the conference, time to get into my daily routine now.

That moment when you volunteer to reprise a workshop on troubleshooting from few months ago. And then you realize you forgot all the solutions for shooting the simulated trouble. πŸ˜‘

I've been looking for a meetup on a particular topic for some time now. Just accidentally found out there's one in my own city!

Sent my work 2015 MacBook away for battery replacement, went on a 2 week vacation, came back to the same battery. Repair shop didn't have time to deal with it.

Welcome to Fire City, population: me.

Review of To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers 

Just finished the season 2 of Mindhunter in as many days, and have fount it one of the most bingeable shows I've ever seen.

While I did enjoy the format (as well as the content!), it made me think about incentives for Netflix to make bingy shows.

Is binge watching result of creative freedoms for writers that get to make 10 hour "films"? Is it a format for modern audience without patience to follow a show for months? Is there some other financial benefit for Netflix?
What do you think?

Just started reading To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers.

I absolutely love the way the author set up the introduction by addressing the reader directly and pulling them into the story world!

Whenever I take a vacation my biorythm switches to a graveyard shift.

I cam already see the work Monday swinging like a baseball bat towards my sleep deprived zombified head.

It's gonna be ugly. 😟

Digging into second season of Mind Hunters.

Have high hopes for tis one!

Now every time I edit a file vim decides to make its directory a go project and sticks a go.mod file in there. I'm not amused. πŸ˜‘

It's hard to write in an easy to understand, direct way! In fact, I'm sure machines understand my writing better than people. πŸ˜„

Here's a *great* lecture by always interesting Steven Pinker on the subject of writing style suitable for humans:
