As directionless as anything else I’ve done, this archaic form of internet space is my home on the web. If I ever do anything important, it will probably show up here. It will also contain things that are unimportant.

Hell yeah.
Hell yeah.

Who I am in 2015: I’m the recently minted and mildly anxious father of a small female person. Her mother, a woman to whom I am married, fortunately seems to know what to do most of the time. I’m living where I’ve lived, in the Bay Area of California. I’ve entered my late 30’s, which is a little later in the game for fatherhood than some, but ready or not…

I spend mornings to early afternoon with the kid, and afternoons-to-evenings working. I come home and usually prepare dinner as well, just barely kissing the kid good-night (until she wakes for feedings). After personal necessities, that tends to boil down to around to 1-2 hours of leisure time at the tip end of the day, often with a healthy number of yawns. Which I realize can be a luxury, but I’m not in competition with busier parents: to me that’s not a lot of time. I read, sometimes I write, I play a few video games, and I waste time on the internet in half-hearted pursuits of useless knowledge. I tend not to get very deep into anything in that amount of time, and spread my time among those activities pretty thinly. Often with one ear cocked for a hungry baby cry. That’s today. Next week? Hard to say.

You know what, though? It’s not terrible.

  1. Sorry to bug you for something like this, but is your avatar/custom title/whatever from a real game? If so, what is it?

    • Sorry for the delay in replying. The avatar is put together with sprites from the Oryx roguelike tileset, created for TigSource’s Assemblee competition. It’s not from a specific game, but those tiles are freely available for game developers, and were used in several of the games for that competition.

      If you want to play a game that looks similar to the avatar, try Powder. If you want to try one of the best roguelikes around, try Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

  2. Ah, thanks for the reply, and sorry for the late reply of my own. I’ve totally been playing DCSS for a while now, and I occasionally read the thread on SA for it. Sadly I don’t really play it often enough not to suck at it!
