I'm having a lot of fun working on a prototype of a terminal-based economy simulator. The original idea was to create a trading roguelike inspired by Patrician III and that could be played on the terminal, setting you on the role of a merchant in an ancient world composed of city-states.

Right now there's not much to do apart from trading goods between cities. Still working on basic stuff. The last addition has been auto-traveling, as a true merchant is too lazy to press arrow keys.

There is a world of computing that I am privileged to experience every day, that brings me great joy, and that most people will never experience. And that's okay, because we are all different and different things us each joy.

But I just love how my computing environment has become an extension of my self. My personality, quirks, and efficiencies all exist right here between keyboard and screen.

My thoughts flow unburdened from one action to the next, executing my will, as natural as breathing.
