Hey mastodon, I guess it's finally time to stop lurking and formally say hi. I'm the kind of nerd that used to care a little too much about the math behind cool ideas compared to the ideas themselves; more of an emotional perspective today (thanks, music) but I'm still a sucker for a good math pun.
Lived on both sides of the Atlantic for good chunks of my life.
Oh, and my gender's been pretty much up in the air for over half a decade 😁

turns out the imperfections were - and are still - a great deal of the charm for me
.so now it doesn't have the same exagerated feel that held together all of the extravagence in the plot and mechanics
the best metaphor I've found is thus: warcraft 3 (& F.T.)'s graphical identity/design was deeply reflective of the hardware limitations of 18 years ago
when run on today's "gaming" computers, it could be qualified as having imperfections
thus, for Reforged, they took the imperfections out! (/!\)
but there's just something they _did_ with the design that's just plain alienating me...
on the one hand I love having a guaranteed executable that I can re-download when needed and has been redesigned to take full advantage of modern day hardware

genre ok, sources et perspectives diverses je veux bien, mais là autant toutes les mettre derriere une case cliquable pour laisser de la place à d'autres couvertures
ou tout simplement que ca prenne moins de place sur la page 🙄
A bit about me!
My name is Lazuli, i'm 24. Nonbinary, bisexual and polyamorous. I live in the woods, my favorite color is green and I have a bratty baby (cat) named Leona. I am an intersectional feminist and support BLM wholeheartedly.
I'm excited to be joining a space not owned by FB. And hope I can find the same sense of community there was on insta. I plan on posting queer and sex positive content.

Damn do I wish I'd started to watch Philosphy Tube way earlier, if only to be exposed to such reddit comments sooner than a year after they're written 😅
specifically I'd like to pattern match over the first n values of the iterator produced by .split() without needing to generate of its values.
