πŸ‘‹ I'm Ricardo. I live in sunny .

:crt_w_green_lines: I live in an ivory tower of abstractions, and use arcane sigils to coerce poisoned sand and lightning to do my bidding. This sometimes works as intended.

πŸ¦€ I'm a fan, been following it since before the 1.0 release, and it keeps getting better.

:blobcat: have a place in my heart. I'm a simple man, I see cat photos, I boost 'em.

πŸ“š Reading is the best thing (after , of course)

is a fascinating subject, regardless if the subject is Ancient Rome, Mesopotamia or, most mysterious of all, the Late Bronze Age collapse (it was not just the Sea Peoples, okay?)

Ann Leckie, N.K. Jemisin, and Ursula K. LeGuin are gifts to humanity, and you owe yourself reading their delightful and works!

you have the right to scream at ass; if you are unable to scream at own ass, an ass will be provided for you

the new thinkpads have moved away from the ultra-slim trend in favor of a thicker, cuter aesthetic.

While I'm still grading some of the pins I think I've got plenty of good ones to put it up in the shop!

What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us 

Sexual harassment was wrong in the 50s. It was wrong in the 80s. It is wrong today.

There is no statute of limitations on social interactions.

The Internet is helping people come together to claim their power and hold those *in* power accountable.

I hope that this is only the beginning.

And I hope that racism gets the same treatment.

It was dark and wet outside.

Not actively, it was calm in the aftermath of the downpour. A vivid memory that prevented the sun from reappearing.

Well, okay, the CLOUDS were; I had a vague idea of how weather worked.

Humans had a way of explaining everything.

Other fey griped that it sapped the magic out of the world.

But I disagreed.
