Formation

Astrological chart

Scorpio, rising Sagittarius. Full chart forthcoming. Although Mars dominates my chart, I have always preferred Pluto as a personal icon. I like astrology as a symbolic language; I like the materialism of astrological metaphysics, and it has always been a useful tool for processing emotions. I have not studied astrophysics, I know barely anything about the history of astrology, and I am not even familiar with the signs, except for in a superficial way (it’s on my to-do list. My interest in astrology has an element of irony, and my knowledge is superficial, but it is a sincere interest.

Things I Use

Technical setup

  • Thinkpad X1 Carbon (5th gen). This is my main computer. I have a desktop that I use as a media server and as a backup. The laptop is starting to show its age. I yearn for a fully-modded Thinkpad X220.
  • Gentoo Linux since roughly Summer 2020. Arch Linux for years before then. A brief spell of using Windows on a laptop, preceded by not having one. I first started experimenting with Linux around the age of 16, using Slackware and Ubuntu for a number of years.
  • Vim. It’s very important to me, and a crucial part of how I understand new media.
  • I have a generic 60% mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches. I like it and I like the tactility, but I hope to one day upgrade to either a vintage IBM Model M, or its continuation, the Mini-M.
  • I run a fork of the dwm window manager, alongside a fork of the simple/suckless terminal
