We've had some new arrivals to the server, so I thought I'd post a re- #introduction
I'm a #medieval re-enactor/re-creationist, active in the #sca for not quite 40 years now. In that time, I've done a little bit of a lot of things, but what stuck was combat - both heavy armoured and light rapier - and cookery. I eventually went back to school to work on medieval cooks and cookery.
I've been a gamer since before I was a re-enactor. I act and write.
I run computers to earn my daily bread.
Made a neural net version of one of those color memes.
Thousands of San Franciscans took to the streets to protest police violence. In response, police snooped on them with a vast business district camera network. They violated the city's new surveillance tech ordinance. So we sued. https://www.eff.org/press/releases/activists-sue-san-francisco-wide-ranging-surveillance-black-led-protests-against

Clutched my pearls hard when I saw people having a conversation about going to a restaurant with Tinder dates, until I realized that sitting maskless 3 feet across the table isn't the only bodily fluid they hope to be exchanging and then I was just angry anyone was in a restaurant at all again. Like, go meet outside before deciding to fuck and keep your exhalations out of the general public. And if you didn't end up liking them but still went to a restaurant? You got played.
I thought the earth remembered me,
she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,
nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths
among the branches of the perfect trees.
All night I heard the small kingdoms
breathing around me, the insects,
and the birds who do their work in the darkness.
In the interest of science, I repeated the experiment again today, and am happy to report success!
