Hey all! I'm Sugar, more commonly known as Dos.

Things I am all about:
* Pokemon
* Furry
* Video Game Analysis
* Newspaper Comics
* ZZT (
* Small code projects
* Socialism

Compared to Twitter I plan to be a little more open about what I post here, but
this isn't an explicit account or on the level of an After Dark.

took 3 months, but i finally mirrored the entire "" classic #warez collection in its entirety by painstakingly downloading every single file via ZModem batch transfers in a terminal client.

huge credit to SCiZE for creating the site and curating such an incredibly deep archive of 1990s #bbs #piracy culture. it's a veritable treasure trove for #RetroComputing #history researchers:

the mirror amounted to 160gb of BBS-shared files for MS-DOS and windows, from 1986 to 1999.

the best part of this project was figuring out how to exploit a bug in the bbs software. normally, it only allows you to download a specific number of files. i accidentally discovered an integer rollover exploit that resulted in -2994285989 files queued for download 🤣

Foxxy progress. Slow but steady. Adding and smoothing out details and refining lighting. Being careful to avoid rushing theough anything. #TraditionalArt #Watercolor #MastoArt #Fox

MY HOBBY: watching ads on YouTube for racehorses being promoted for stud opportunities. You will never see these on TV outside of horse-racing broadcasts. But within horse-racing broadcasts they're ubiquitous. They're so, so weird, especially with the unspoken subtext.

This is the stud ad for 2017 Preakness winner Cloud Computing.

People worry a lot about losing knowledge — about "burned-down libraries".

Comparatively few people seem to worry about what happens if you take a billion books full of auto-generated, often-untrue junk text and *add* them all to the library.

In theory, nothing is lost. In reality, everything is lost, because nothing useful can now be found.

I think you should be able to get holiday candy for holidays that aren't real

💾 NEW PODCAST💾 In December we checked out Albion, the 1995 scifi/fantasy RPG by Blue Byte.

It might be a bit of an obscure game, but there's a lot to love here!

#DOSGaming #retrogaming #podcast does list "Cromulent" so I'm allowed to use it professionally and not have to consider if my audience was watching or even alive when the Simpsons episode aired

I mean, I can, I obviously try not to leave TODOs lingering around in my code and it's not like the false positives are all that numerous

I can't get away with just grepping for TODO when I have masTODOn in my code. (I'm using an alias that presets arguments like -i and --exclude-dir specific to this project)
