Been meaning to restart this blog once I had the chance. When one of the maintainers from DreamWidth went off the deep end about a rival company, I felt rather unsettled, so now that Pelican is running on my work system, might as well start this part again.
Name’s TeraDyne. I also go by GallowsGryph and Codebalion in some places, though generally by TeraDyne, or Tera. I’m a bit of a geek, with a love of retro and vintage tech, and a dislike of most modern OSes. I’m also a fiction writer, lover of text adventures, and someone who appreciates well-written media of all sorts.
While I use a Windows 10 gaming rig, my daily work device is my 2008 MacBook Pro, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and Windows 7. Yes, it’s old, but it serves my needs rather well. I can access Mastodon, twtxt, IRC, Discord, XMPP, gopher, newsgroups, and most of the web without problems, as well as run productivity software to create the things that I enjoy making. I can also code on it, running modern GCC and the like.
Probably going to be mostly talking about tech on here, but expect pretty much anything. You can also find me on Mastodon at SDF Mastodon.
