10 PRINT "Hello World!"
Hi, I'm Bob. AKA 0x3b0b or 3b0b (both of which I also pronounce Bob) since shortly after #defcon in 2021; I use the 㬋 (UTF codepoint 3B0B) ideograph in a lot of places to continue the theme because that's the kind of sense of humor I have. (I haven't found any indication of it being offensive - it apparently means "name of a star" which I think is pretty cool.)
I've been in #softwaredevelopment professionally since 2005. The interest started with a Commodore 64 when my age was in single digits, but I wasn't one of those prodigies writing full-fledged programs as a kid; prior to high school I only dabbled.
I'm a #ttrpg nerd; #discgolf player; #symphonicmetal, #sciencefiction and #fantasy fan; and dabbler in #infosec and #devsecops, as an extension of an interest in #devops acquired as a programmer. I've been meaning to get into #ActivityPub and #IndieWeb for years now and I'm finally getting around to it - I've got an article in the works about why (and why now), and about how I'm setting it up. I look forward to seeing how wrong I manage to get it.
My website is running microblog.pub, which means it can act as a citizen of both the Indieweb and the Fediverse; but I'm running the dev version, and I'm not sure what it can and can't do, so I will be experimenting with how to use it in combination with other services and my Disroot account. While I'm working on that, content may or may not be syndicated, and likes/replies/etc. on syndicated content may or may not be backfed to my site.
Hey there friend!
I am very interested in getting back into blogging and connecting whatever I create to #indieweb and #fediverse.
I’ve been in and out of this space since 2017; and have dabbled with keeping an independent presence on the web since I was posting to listserves and Usenet photogroups with MIME decoders while trying to play my turn in Alpha Centauri on the local computer club BBS (which my buddy’s uncle hosted on a Commodore Amiga as well)
…if you feel like giving an old dog trying to learn some new tricks, drop me a line!
