I am psychologically ⅓ Unix greybeard, ⅓ Libre software evangelical, and ⅓ dad nostalgic for retro games and tech (and 100% dragon :P); but unfortunately I'm in the body of a gen Y/Z techbro, the type of person you'd imagine when thinking of someone who programs webshits or “AI” for FAANG (or whatever the new abbreviation is).
Finally got around to commissioning a ref sheet for myself! Look at that handsome fella!

Excited to finally get to meet the King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 25 Sept 2021. It was moving about just below the boardwalk, looking for food, giving me a close (and safe) view of it. It was more than 2 metres long, as the last picture shows.

I really wish I found a higher level programming language I genuinely like all around. Most of the ones I generally like to program in are not portable at all (which is the antithesis of my main goals when programming stuff), the portable ones all suck to actually program in, and the few remaining have other issues that make me avoid using them.
I don't like C all-around but it feels like one of the only languages where the good stuff aligns with what I want and the bad stuff is minor or avoidable.
Palm OS apps
Some apps that I've found to be good:
CardTXT - very good text editor that can work directly on SD card and in plain text
Converter - Unit converter that even includes donkeys as a unit of power
HandyShopper - nice shopping list app
Manana - todo list for your maybe one day ideas
TiBR - well done minimal ebook reader app, has the necessities like bookmarks, saving your spot on exit, autoscroll
