Hi, I'm Andrew! I'm a software developer from the UK pretending to be a blue fox on the internet!
I'm a massive dork and am interested in amateur radio, electronics, engineering, programming, trains, space, science and a whole lot of other things! o3o
I work for a big Enterprise-ey company, but I like writing small, concice bits of code which are easy to be picked up and understood by others. I also care about accessibility and ethical programming (that is, using programming to make the world a better place instead of using it to make profit!)
My account is locked to act as a bot deterrent, feel free to drop me a friend request. 💙
thinking about this genius/absolutely despicable use of the speaking horn in sea of thieves, there
Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.
Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).
Software developing fox! 26 years of breathing experience. I try my best to be a good citizen. 💙🤗 #NoBot
