Hello, world 👋.

I'm an engineer, gamer, father, open source enthusiast, human.

In search of those asking big questions and discussing powerful ideas.

What's important to you? Let's talk about it.

Ankaŭ, mi ŝatas babili en Esperanton fojfoje.

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

To the man in London, loudly singing a song in and waving an Esperanto flag for all those passing by on the street: thank you for proving to my kids that it *is* a real language.

I wanted to come by and say "saluton", but we were in a bit of a hurry and the family would've suffered serious damage rolling their eyes so hard.

I admire your not-giving-a-shit whatsoever and aspire to be a little like you. Dankon.

The invasion of Ukraine underscores an argument in favour of nuclear power plants: they can afford their owners a security of electricity supply

I'm not into League of Legends at all, and I realize I'm late to the show, but I'm really impressed with on Netflix. Highly recommended if you're into sci-fi animation.

They're rich in protein, sustainable, and easier to farm than livestock. But could insects really become a staple food of the future?
