looking for software development work :boost_requested:​ 

Hey, I am looking for software developer work. I am familiar with C, C++, Java, and many other languages, but I learn quickly, and can probably learn the language you use.

I'm fairly experienced in modeling relational databases, working with Qt, Sqlite, Postgres, and SQL Server, SDL, and SFML. My specialty is Linux but I can target just about any POSIX-compliant platform, or Windows, and I aim to write portable code.

I've worked on Plume, a Fediverse blogging platform, Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead, a roguelike game, sqlite_modern_cpp(a c++ abstraction wrapper for sqlite), MuaLu(A lua based muck engine), and more.

I've dabbled in assembly and lower level coding, and would not be adverse to picking it up to work.

I am based in the US, specifically Tulsa.

I am available for contract work or remote work, though I am currently caring for someone who is disabled so I have to be remote, or at least have minimal office days.

You can get in touch with me via DM or through email through VioletWhite@espeon.social

Since it's about damn time that we redo our introduction:
Hi, we're Violet. We're a bat/fox(either or) from the lower northeast, generally doing a lot of programming or shitposting, musing about our life, getting far too angry about things we largely can't do much about...

We're a queer trans woman, plural, and an utter disaster, so, :)

Uh, yeah, we're still not better at this after a year of using fedi but not writing an introduction since the beginning.

Feel free to say hi, we don't bite x3

bad bizarre obscure programming nonsense 

I drink from my mug with the international MUF standards association logo on it. Boot up my laptop with a witty MUF snippet on it and crack my hands, "Time to write code that will make my life bad three hours later when the user I hate finds a bug in it and then starts to mansplain at me about some problem in my code."

I log into mudlet and potato and start the fun of balancing doing bad ero-RP, and coding. A notification dings and I see that that code already broke, and I wonder why I don't have that person blocked.
"Hexyyyy!" They say. My staff alt being called Hexaferrum, this makes sense.

They found another problem in the awful slot machine that the game owner had me create as a first project. I grimace, seeing that it's the same fucking problem that I declared fixed a while back. Realizing what had gone wrong, I type in a few lines followed by an announcement that the slot machine is gone because I could not be bothered to care about this creakily broken code. That everything that it had once done had already been placed in more useful and better interfaces which make more sense.

has anyone made a Minecraft mod using jython though?

food 

a pizza with cheese stuffed crust is congruent to a cream donut

Freedesktop said no and Gnome said they won't implement it

Other window managers have implemented methods to answer that question tho

Show thread

Wayland, a window protocol too secure to tell you what the active window is

Show thread

Cactus is a 'human sampling profiler'

That means that every so often it asks what you're doing and records it.

We kinda want this but it just records the active window's window title(tho, this doesn't work on wayland at all)

no context 

"it's me, the fluke"

we are certain that life is built of the intersection of larger and larger cycles

and yet, sometimes new things seem to be

this is basically the plot of darkest dungeon, so that's just "my dad invested in pets DOT com" the simulation

Show thread

you know, investing is kinda like being cursed: "my family had a lot of money until dad invested in pets.com"

wonder if that dude we knew who was trying to cure sleep has made any progress

Show thread

nothing 

mmm, not sure about the shirt though. might go without that
