Hello! I've just moved servers (again) so seems like a good time for an #introduction post!
I'm Michael (he/him). I am a programmer by trade, game developer, tabletop GM and woodworker by hobby, and more recently I've been getting into rock climbing and writing.
By day I work for Stripe where I help to build Stripe Checkout.
I also have a super good dog named Flynn who I post pictures of pretty often.
Hello people of all types
I have been curating interesting and historic facts and notes every morning for several weeks to share with coworkers and friends. I've really enjoyed doing it and would like to share it all with more people.
I've put together a substack newsletter where I'll be posting every weekday morning going forward. It's free and I'd love it if you checked it out:
Started just blocking every brand that advertises on my timeline on Twitter. Interesting results after a few months of doing so.
Getting less ads overall, maybe because their system can't choose one within a timeout for response times? Also the ads I'm getting are increasingly niche and lower production quality.
Here's a favorite recently
Open sourced my script to generate a D&D 5e reference folder for use in Obsidian.
