The Demolition Man

Another old post, this one with some very bad and very unsubtle poetry (Gopher)

Nostalgia trip has been triggered

An old post, just talking about pleasant wastes of time creating RPG characters

In a music mood

A bit of a follow up to the previous post, this time specifially nostalgic gaming music.

What's your opinion on a good "beginner" language for me to start learning?

- It's not for a specific purpose, I'm not looking to increase employment opportunities or anything, I just like getting computers to do stuff.
- I understand a decent amount of the basics but most of my "coding" consists of bash/batch scripting and html/css.
- I took some CS courses 2 decades ago and did introductory C++ and Pascal but I'm sure there's none of that left in my memory.

100 boosts and I'll put "Wankie Tankie" in my description

Alcohol mention 

I love that our (Western Australia) animal emblem is the numbat. Not only is it an incredibly cute animal, it's also a great insult. You bunch of numbats.

Temporarily back on the web instead of gopherspace: republishing a post about a (never-realised) campaign setting that may be getting a second chance soon.

Hi peeps. Starting Saturday 1st Feb and for 10 weeks, I'm going to be holding an class at the State Library. If that sounds vaguely like something you'd be interested in, let me know and I can fill some details in for you. Feel free to boost or pass on to your IRL acquaintances.

Having (re-)discovered Gopher, I'm now wanting to have another go at Usenet... Are there any servers out there that don't have ridiculous monthly fees? And for the record, I'm only after it for text (at least for now, anyway) not the dodgy binary stuff.

It doesn't matter how good your post is, or what it's about ... if you put an apostrophe where it doesn't belong or wrote "breath" instead of "breathe" or used the wrong form of "your" then I will not favourite it, boost it or even press very firmly on the screen as I attempt to scroll the damaged object from my sight as rapidly as possible.

I recognise that this is indicative of a deep flaw in me personally, but I don't expect it'll be overcome any time soon.

Any of you people have any interest at all in going to the tennis on Sunday? I won a pair of tickets in a competition I didn't even know was a competition and I a) have a prior commitment and b) have no interest in tennis. It's the Italy vs TBD singles game. Let me now if you're interested...

One more thing done for ... I've removed a bunch of columns from Subway Tooter. No local or federated timelines, no followed hashtags or other searches. Just a home timeline and a notification column for each of my two accounts.
