I spent almost forty years trying to find a label for myself. Am I writer or a programmer? A father or a son? Sooner or later, and occasionally repeatedly, I realized that while there are a lot of labels for myself, there isn't only a single one that defines me. I am many thing and proud of almost every one.
…large repository of useless knowledge.
Foremost, I'm a voracious learner of everything I can get my hands on. Of course, this means I end up being a large repository of useless knowledge, but it also makes me a jack-of-trades. I'm also a husband of one and a father of two.
I am a writer of mostly fiction, including stories and novels. Some of them have actually resulted in a published novel while I have various stories scattered among some small presses and publications. When I do write, I like to know more than the story on the page, so I also easily lose myself in world-building and exploration.
I'm also a coder. I create compliance software by day and random programs by night. I also managed to pull out a few games here and there, both on pen-and-paper and on the computer. Somewhere down the line, I got interested in typography, geology, and open source software.
Waking up after a night sleeping in the mud by the river, Kanéko is overwhelmed by the realization that Pahim had betrayed her and now men were searching the woods for her.
I decided to spend two days extending the features of MfGames Tasks to include calendar dates and a simplified budgeting.
Kanéko wakes up in the wagon. It takes her a moment to realize Pahim is taking her the wrong way. He doesn't want to join the others on the trip but is instead taking her to Jinto Panzir.
I finished all my assigned issues for Author Intrusion v0.10.0. Here is a brief summary of the changes made to this unstable project.
Kanéko wakes up in the morning to find that the rest of the class had left without her, leaving only Pahim alone to catch up with the others. But there are other things waiting for her, including a stern meeting with Falkin for getting the rest of the class drunk.
Buzzed with the excitement of having a private dinner with a successful merchant and Falkin, Kanéko returns to her room to find Pahim and his friends had drunken themselves into a stupor.
After a few weeks of work, the current rewrite of Author Intrusion got to a stopping point. This has the minimum functionality to detect echo works but it has a long way to go.
