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.
@Jo Welcome to the fediverse! What kind of vintage computers are you into?
@feoh Mostly the Amiga, since I grew up with an A500+, but I'm not fussy.
@Jo Yay Amiga! I have been enjoying the crap out of playing my old Amiga games and puttering with AMOS using https://www.amigaforever.com/ - and I can't wait to get my Clockwork Pi! - http://www.clockworkpi.com - someone has gotten an Amiga emulator to work on it. Playing Shadow of the Beast or Barbarian or Speedball on the subway will RULE :)
@Jo Still boggles my mind how far ahead of the curve the Amiga was. It's 2018 and most applications STILL can't do what you could do with AREXX. Anyway, I will stop now :) Welcome!
@Jo avi is so perf ❤️
@Jo The Hilda librarian icon is
@Jo Wow, you seem like a cool person with cool interests. Do you work professionally in software development?
@artemis Not at the moment, no, I just dragged myself through a bunch of deferred uni assignments to finish them off last week.
@Jo Oh wow, congrats on getting through the assignments! During a pandemic no less. It has been a real struggle for me to motivate lately.
@artemis Yeah, I was already a little demotivated beforehand, because a lot of focus was always placed on getting a job or making profit, especially in the final year.
@Jo Seems to be impossible to follow you on here- keep getting bugs when trying.
@jenalyze That's strange.
@Jo says 404 not found when I try
@jenalyze I'm not sure what's happening there, but I suspect it might be a problem on queer.af's end. I've been getting follow requests just fine from other places.
I can't really check on my end at the moment.
@jenalyze Oh yikes, queer.af is still on v2.4.4.
That's one major version behind mine, so that's probably part of the problem.
@Jo Ok, not surprised. I know it's running really old stuff.
