A lot has changed in the last 2 months. I was approved for SSI, then I moved from the US to Finland, got married and got permanent residency in Finland. I went from living in abject poverty to being financially secure. I don't live alone and no longer have to worry about someone finding my dead body in my apartment because there was no one to call emergency services. It sill feels unreal that life can change this much.

I am not a computer programmer. I only write small tools sometimes because it fits my weird needs.

I am bad at C and I only know basis HTML for web development.

People often assume I am a programming expert :flan_smile:

Someone on #openbsd irc channel asked how to visualize network bandwidth in a console with graphs.
I came up with a nice command using netstat, awk and ttyplot package.

I enjoyed it so much I wrote an article on my blog with explanations and configure options! :flan_hurrah: :flan_hurrah: :flan_hurrah:

I just beat the original Golden Sun. Next: The Lost Age...

I just encountered a shiny Abra in Pokémon Crystal and had no Balls with which to catch it. ;_;

OH: "Laundry is basically an extreme sport"

The 3rd AC adapter I tried worked. The system is fully functional. I have yet to notice symptoms of capacitor failure, either, despite the capacitors in this unit being those poor-quality Chhsi ones.

After having lifted a solder pad on my VA2.3 Sega Genesis 2 when trying to replace its RESET button, I have finally fixed it by soldering a wire to where that solder pad led.
