Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).
I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻
I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.
I hate doing this, because y'all are wonderful andboost my donation toot all the time and give me and @pupper some ridiculous sums of money. (Crowd funding, it seems, is not many folks giving £5, it's a handful giving £50, and while I know that plenty of people can afford that, it still makes me feel guilty and cry.)
We're about £130 in the red right now, on top of a broken washing machine and FUBAR plumbing, so any help at all would be massively appreciated. Thank you.

If I had €200 to spend on a new old-stock Amiga I'd be emulating Phillip J. Fry in an instant. o.O
My cat Bernie had to go to the vet, and his bill is pretty expensive. Here's a reminder that I still have Ko-fi commissions open if you'd like to help my family and I pay for it-- AND you'll get a cute doodle!! Anything helps though, and shares are appreciated!!

Ah, Emmerdale, Yorkshire TV's monarch of dragging shit out longer then it needs to be.
Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.
Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.
He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.
They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.
All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.
The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

Semi randomly recalling the time Galaxy (North East England) played Tube & Berger's "Twistin' Around" and the reaction of the DJ after reading that it featured Chrissie Hynde (of The Pretenders) on vocals was to suddenly scream "IS SHE NOT DEAD YET??"

Of course, the real question about that Sonic movie is: will they render his donger Dr. Manhattan style?
