I'm Dan. Originally from the UK, I've been living in Kingston, ON since March 2017.
I love listening to music (I have an eclectic taste, but metal and classical are my true loves), reading, coding, and watching wrestling!
I work from home as a software engineer on the Ubuntu Server team. My focus in that team is on cloud-init and curtin.
Politics-wise, I'm a lefty, and inclusion is very important to me. I'm currently trying to work out what that means for me, both in my online life and my offline life. (I deal with a lot of anxiety, which makes working that out much trickier!)
Related to politics, this Mastodon/hometown instance is my first foray in to the world of the decentralised web, which I think is going to be very important over the coming years.
hey clowns a new anime by a black creator called cannon busters drops on Netflix today, you know what to do (watch that shit) and also spread the word 👌🏾
WNBA, video games, paywalled link, joking trash talk
Very cool that the WNBA are getting included in NBA2K20; it might be time for me to pick up another NBA title for the PS4.
(This article also features another episode in the WNBA's ongoing wife battles. Does the NBA have any husband battles? No?! INFERIOR LEAGUE)

LMAO we just introduced black to format this codebase, but to reduce the codebase churn we disabled the string normalisation (so it won't change single quotes to double quotes). The first, the _very_ first PR after we land that has someone bikeshedding the (double) quotes that I chose to use.

this is extremely cyberpunk dystopia I feel like
