Just got my account on here, and I figure a quick is in order!

I'm Arky, I'm a gay dude (he/him pronouns) who enjoys being a collie on the internet 💖

When it comes to hobbies away from the fandom, I enjoy 📷, 🎮, and 🥾🏞️!

During the day I work as a software engineer (focused on ), which doesn't seem too uncommon in these parts 😅

turned out alright, know what I'd change next time

so I've started getting mixed nuts in as an afternoon snack and I can only apologise to my partner for all the "deez nuts" jokes he'll have to endure, xoxo

Decided I wanted a link to hand out that wasn't tied to one social platform, so uhh:

Will add a Flickr account there when I get round to setting a new one up (old one got deleted due to inactivity 😔)

tube strike today and boy am I glad that I'm fully remote now

your bank: sorry, what? you want two tractors?

the galling feeling when you're about to go to bed and remember there's laundry to hang up 😔

Judging companies by what I find in their mail headers

You ever have those days where you feel especially like your fursona?

Today I'm like "hello yes, this is dog" 🐶

"encrypted at rest" has become such an industry-wide cop-out

the fact that the disk is encrypted should be the starting point for user data, not the end

I like how privacy-related training questions can be answered by asking yourself "Would a European be horrified by this?"
