Pinned toot


Ok, so I never properly introduced myself. I'm a rag-tag fugitive from Scroogle+. I've been moderately active on diaspora* (pluspora) for a while, but I'd like to explore the fediverse more. I also staked out a plot on Friendica, but for some reason I don't find it as user friendly. I chose FOSStodon because I'm a programmer by trade. You'll also find me on github as GuyFleegman, though I'm not active there. Oh- my G+ name was (and my real name is) John Douglas Porter.

Ok, geeks, I need some help. What is the name of the trope that says: "The inhabitants of that place (e.g. island or planet) are too dangerous. All interaction with them is forbidden!" The one example I can think of regards Talos IV:

One thing I never did discover, while I was staring out into the dark: that what a lady looks for in her lover is charm, strangeness, and quark.

Hey, everyone!
Party at my place on Noisette!

"if all sock puppets here started a revolution, would they begin by guillotining hands?"

Some would argue that I shouldn't be programming anyway, but I try not to listen to the voices coming from the toaster. [Ovid]

"If the NSA felt like spying on you, pro tip, they're gonna be able to do it. If you care about keeping your shit secure, it shouldn't be on the internet at all."

I wanna know if there's any Liverpool supporters!

Because I dig Chelsea.

I'd hold the whole world in my metal claws, if it wasn't for the Three Laws

Some folks have suggested (Absolute Xenophone)[tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php] or something akin. That's close, but not what I'm thinking of, because that just describes those beings and why they're dangerous. What I'm talking about is strictly what's done on "our" side -- making that planet/island off limits by some official law or decree.

Sure, 90% of my code is crud. That's because 90% of is crud.

Oh, for the wings of any bird, other than a battery hen.

Sometimes i feel like R: not anyone's favorite, but functional and pretty great with data.
