introduction 

Hi, I'm Levi.

Professionally, I'm a developer for a popular game engine. (See @Tak )

Unprofessionally, I erratically contribute to pieces of free software (including and ), read novels, play video games, and try to productively stimulate/encourage my two young children.

Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

Here’s a free tech tip: if someone says “blockchain” run as fast as you can

That sinking feeling when you're trying and failing to get back to sleep late at night, and then you hear the first birds start to chirp outside

(Talking about getting milk from the shop XD)

J: But that's okay, I got some from our friends at the shop yesterday. But they're not our friends, not really.
Me: What are they?
J: Our enemies. Rivals, at best.
Me: Why?
J: They have something we need, and we have something they need. Every so often, we do an exchange of goods, where we tolerate each other's presence for a few minutes. This is not a good foundation for a friendship.

Hey Europeans, there's a European citizens initiative going round right now for universal/unconditional basic income.

The deadline has just been extended to the start of May.

Be cool if you signed it!

My novel, NON-PLAYER CHARACTER, is live on Kickstarter!

It's a queer portal fantasy about TTRPG nerds in their 30s who are transported to the world of their game.

And it has a bunch of wonderful characters I want to share with you!

L: Daddy, what are you eating?

me: Licorice.

L: …why?

programmers: Part of the reason C is so error-prone is that there's barely anything in the standard library so everybody implements everything themselves!

also programmers: *ignore existing C standard library functions when programming in C and reimplement everything themselves*

L, pretending their spoon is a laser gun or something: Far, jeg skider dig!

me, sighing: 1, du skyder mig. 2, det gør man ikke.
