Pinned toot

I registered this account a while ago but haven't used it actively.

I'm a Python programmer and former Sysadmin in Toronto. I like tinkering with 3D printers, raspberry PI and electronics on the side.

I'm a Linux geek and participate with @gtalug.

Besides computer hobbies I like running and cycling a lot.

I'll be posting more of my side projects and hobbies here, I'll try to put other topics under cw.

and a longer tutorial notebook on the specific techniques I've been playing with (using bezmerizing and flat, incl. overview of randomness in python) gist.github.com/aparrish/22092

This is a system. Last thing I did just let kde run for a while, then removed and installed iptables.

Now everything works.
