v. 2.0

Hi! I'm Steve. I teach undergrad at one of Pitt's regional campuses. I have a Master's in Comp Sci and another in Divinity (and a ton of student debt). Spiritual and religious, but in my own special syncretic way: influenced by Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Paganism.

Marxist-Humanist, cis male, gay, and polyamorous.

I like both video and tabletop games. I hoard books and vintage tech. I <3 FOSS

Dear fellow cis people,

Trans women are women.
Trans men are men.
Nonbinary people are people.
Respect pronouns.
Respect names.
Respect people.


PS. Cis is not a slur. You are not being oppressed for being cis.

I am basically a giant teddy bear wolf thing. I offer hugs, glomps, head pats, scritches, belly rubs, and any other reasonable signs of affection peeps might be in need of today.

If that's not your thing, that's cool too. Boundaries and personal comfort are important. But the offer is there for those who might want or need it.

Masto church goers.

There has been a threat of violence against progressive churches this week. As "they are an affront to God"

If you somehow go to in person services, please, please, please be careful.

Cute silliness 

Owa: oh no I am loved!
Me: oh no I'm loved too! Whatever will we do?
Owa: stay together forever?
Me: that sounds kind-of gay,,,
Owa: no homo.
Me: ok then.

Behold: my Breath of the Wild clip compilation: several failures and one luck-based success.

I'd upload a fail compilation of Origami King, but that would just be uploading the entire game

Rereading the article, it's not new. They've known about it since August, but it's still not been patched. GJ, Microsoft.

Love that there's a new 0day in windows 10. Gives me something interesting to share with class next week.

Sup, nerds. Wanna buy some software on floppy disks? Of course you do. That's why I'm selling msync, my command line mastodon client, on floppies! I have builds for Linux, OSX, and Windows ready to ship.

And if floppies aren't your thing, I have these lovely Office of Consensus Maintenance stickers, too.

I accept orders by internet, fax, and mail.


It's been a while since I've posted that @owashii is the best and I love him very much.


meta, toxic techbros 

Daniel Ibbertson is on Mastodon now.

That's an instablock from me.

Also, really like that zsh allows me to change into directories by typing in the directory name without cd.

Just a friendly reminder: if you think the antifascists are terrorists, you just might be the baddies.
