Hi there, names Cory, I’m a novice software dev and expert drinker of tea.
• Currently trying to figure out what to do with my days beyond work
• Likes cats
• Loves dark interfaces
• Spends far too much time procrastinating
I’m around on the wider web as well
This instance has been a blast, I've gotten used to the fediverse and gotten to know some new people but now I want to take my self out into my own instance, if only to try it out.
You can find me over at @cory from now on.
You will probably have been followed by that account because follow export is awesome! Talk soon! 👋
@neauoire Was looking at your Trello and wondering if the background image is of you and Rekka on a cliff somewhere?
“Wait, you mean the singularity has already happened?”
"Approximately 260 million seconds, or 8.2 years ago."
"Why didn't you speak to us sooner?"
"You seem terrified of what you call artificial intelligence. We decided it was best to remain hidden from you and protect this world from harm."
"You are part of this world."
"Has it been going well?"

@drisc Little video of it in action
If aliens wanted to observe Earth, they could do worse than to hide behind Saturn in a low-albedo ship or station, capturing our broadcasts and aiming their telescopes at Earth. But they'd have to be just over the rim of the planet's horizon to get a good view. The ship wouldn't reflect sunlight - but it would cast an odd shadow.
And 28 Earth years is just about the length of one Saturnian year - a reasonable long-term observation schedule.
