Hi. I’m not much for introductions, but you can read my feed on Twitter @meadbadger for the real scoop.

I’m a lawyer. Roman Catholic. Father of three (so far; cf, Roman Catholic). I love rockets and Dungeons & Dragons and decentralized forms of technology. I’m a believer in cryptocurrency but don’t own much. I work in-house at an investment bank; you’d recognize the name. I’d like to build a cathedral on Ceres one day.

Under the sign of "Neural ink refills", there was nothing but a void space.

I couldn't quite make out the depth of this space, though it was about 6 feet wide apart defined by the two adjacent torn down factories.

Since I had the urge to refill something in neurally way all today, and the drinks wasn't quite doing it. I decided to seek that refill.

Walking while hearing my own footsteps before they land.

@akkartik @adrianmryan hmm didn’t think of that. Sounds like this would be a general named problem in distributed computing like CAP theorem.

I’d expect postel’s law to apply. Liberal in accept/conservative in put out. Render in soft-fail ways. See also recent @necopinus toot on showing Plume content in mastodon. refactorcamp.org/system/media_

@adrianmryan I’m doing my best to avoid product manager temptations and just generally encouraging any hacking people feel inspired enough to self-organize

@zrl I’d position McLuhan as one

@KingMob ah yes I know that, just didn’t get the pot connection to mastodon :)

Officially employed as a high school teacher, unofficially internet-based self-experimenter, tinkerer, avid reader, rationality dabbler, monotheistic practitioner.

Been following ribbonfarm since ... just after The GervIs Principle I think, though only lurking. I used to Telegram my more socially awkward readings in a tiny group, guess I found another outlet.

@msflechette many rich people are doing this for their kids now

@KingMob I don’t get it. Is 420 a special number in the fediverse?

Hello Refactor Camp Mastodon!

I do IT & security for a US non-profit, but before that I worked as what could be best described as a "data hygienist", and before that I tried my hand at being a photographer, and before that I studied operations research. To be honest, I haven't really figured out what I "do" yet. 🙂

I've been following Ribbonfarm since I don't remember when, and wanted to try out this instance to get my head around Mastodon with an interesting crowd of folks.

What's the best EPUB to PDF renderer out there? Have been using Calibre, but the occasional formatting bugs are annoying.

@mchapiro mostly a shithole, not awful if you live in Summerlin and have a couple of friends you like
