Hi! I’m Joe. I like to write computer programs, and I also do that at work. I’m a development lead at an email company, and I help run a literary journal called failbetter. In the past, I managed the digitization unit at a university library.
I care deeply about open access, leftist politics, sustainability, and veganism. I read a lot — mostly sci-fi. I’m a hobbyist photographer, and often share my photos under open licenses.
It’s nice to meet you!
here's the completed build! I present... the Game Boy Pocket SP. it's a Game Boy Pocket motherboard in a custom shell I designed to resemble the GBA SP. to fit the motherboard into the shell, I cut it in half, and then designed a custom flex PCB to connect the two halves through the hinge. i'm using an aftermarket LCD from Cloud Game Store and Gil Tesa's USB-C charging mod for the internal battery. that neat Link's Awakening label is from https://nextstopplease.square.site/
While cleaning up the boat, I found two small black notebooks. We started paging through them, to see if we should keep them. The notebooks were full of sketches, interspersed with shopping lists, and incomplete logs from earlier sailing trips we'd done.
We found logs detailing our very first attempt at sailing offshore, our sail down the US West Coast and Mexico, and our passage from Tonga to New Zealand.
Rekka transcribed the logs today.
I've been writing a journal by hand for over a year now! https://blog.joewoods.dev/projects/one-year-of-journaling/
I get the "Tetris effect" so easily, and have for my entire life; I think I've played about four hours of Mario Kart over the course of the past two days, and I'm seeing blue shell indicators and course patterns where I should prepare to drift overlaid everything I see, but even more strongly when I close my eyes
Wednesday are an extremely good band; every month they release a kind of video blog. It’s so delightful, and I look forward to it every time. https://youtu.be/F1e_uJGfOIs
