I'm Andrew a 24 year old mega nerd.

Beyond that I am also:
- A professional helper person working at .
- Fanatical about , and all things
- A enthusiast
- Passionate about , , in general
- Often found rolling dice and playing some sort of
- Hopelessly addicted to

I don't usually social media but here goes nothing!

Helping my dad sort out his SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records for his website.

Maybe all that time working in trust & safety was useful after all. Never thought I'd be helping set these up

Vagrant is cool. Makes managing VMs fun.

Every time I get mad with it I realize there's more I can do. Finally wrote some ruby to enforce the set of required plugins for the configuration at work. Take that speedreaders

Going into the office makes me feel like I'm in an apocalyptic thriller. Empty desks as far as the eye can see

Cleaning my house makes me feel like I have my life together. Clean house, clean mind

i'm probably not the right person to talk about it, since reading isn't something i've ever personally struggled with, but i think the trepidation many people have about the act of reading comes down to a combination of

(1) self-demoralising (it's hard, it's boring, i've poor attention span, i'm not smart enough for this, where by the time you're actually set up to read you've already convinced yourself you're not going to be able to)

I'm very pleased to announce that the #fennel programming language is now self-hosted!

that is to say, a compiler exists for Fennel which is written *in* Fennel and passes all of the language's test suites across all four supported runtime versions:

if you look at the code you might notice it's a little strange; that's because it's compiled *from* the canonical Lua implementation into Fennel mechanically using my brand new Antifennel compiler

it's a bit ugly in places but it gets the job done!

Free software is not enough: on practical user freedom

Trying out #100DaysToOffload in the hopes that I'll finally be able to build a writing habit 🤞

The bosses never want the employees to talk money. That's because they play favorites.

Talk money with your peers. Be open and honest.

The money taboo is a tool of the oligarchy.

For the first time ever I have put money towards free software.

Gotta put my munnies towards what I believe in

The 8-hour workday is highly profitable, not because of the amount of work people get done in this time, but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy.

Cat just ate a dang bug. Tool her like 15 minutes to do it too

Hey, it's been a while since I've been on this thing. Social distancing is driving me crazy so I'm back seeking human comfort in the arms of internet strangers.
