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

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.

Hmm, we guess 55 gb is probably enough for a gitea instance of our own :3

unsurprisingly, the "chaotic aur" repo is not very reliable for some packages.

We started implementing a turtle parser and then realized that we didn't want to ever use a turtle parser.

Oh, wow, they add every bit of new music to it when the dlc comes out, even if we don't own that dlc.

Well, that makes sense we guess.

2 gigabytes of stellaris is the soundtrack.

That's pretty neat

consider letting a few people host things on it whomst we trust

we should put a gitea instance up when we get home :)


The pilots exam has great varieties of question that range from workplace dynamics to psychological risk factors to the physics of flight to regulations.

We like this one:

The maximum tailwind component of the airplane is 10 knots. The actual tailwind calculated is 11 knots. Other aircraft are continuing to land, so you decide to ignore the limitation and land as well. Which hazardous attitude are you displaying?

A. Impulsivity.
B. Resignation.
C. Anti-authority.

If web developers didn't bother checking to see if it was a supported browser and it actually resulted in breakage, we would just assume it was a case of nothing on the internet ever working quite entirely correctly anyway, and not think much on it.

"now we're doing things while emitting dangerous amounts of contaminants in the poorly ventilated indoors while also being slower than electric"

erowid has a page on estradiol

we should write a trip report :p
