I am @SuperFloppies@mastodon.technology, and this is my little ugly corner of the Web. I basically use it to put things that are longer than one toot, or that need more formatting than can be had in a toot. So it may or may not ever have large amounts of content. We’ll see as time goes by.
I like DuckDuckGo and Wikipedia. And of course, floppy disks, because they’re what I learned on. Not those new-fangled magnetic sheets in the hard plastic shells, either. I mean a real floppy disk. 5.25” or bigger, baby.
I am an Arch Linux user, because I like it and it fits me like a glove. I have used many different forms of UNIX, though, and am versatile enough to adapt to any of them that get thrown at me, as long as it is a new enough one to use C.
Various collections of my personal thoughts, nearly always of a technical nature, and sometimes inspired by conversations that I’ve had with people on the Internet.
This shows the most recent five only. You can also see the full list.

Sometimes I put snippets of code up. If the snips came from somewhere else, you probably need permission to reuse them. Those which are purely my creation are hereby entered into the public domain, or if that is not valid where you are, licensed under the terms of the WTFPL.
