7/23/2023 - Change Log:

-add MOBA idea post
-update some pages
-add miscwood1
-add more animal pics

I am a game developer and mushroom artist. I am interested in finding new ways to disrupt and change the oppressive social order. You can see some words about and pictures of my work on this site.

I finally made this website which is about 10 years overdue at this point. Better late than never. The nice part about making a website 10 years overdue is that I have 10 years worth of content to add to the site. I finally settled on a style built on web technology over 20 years old. Maybe you care to read a little more about it.

You can follow me on twitter and github.

This site was built with HTML and hakyll.

6/27/2018 - MOTD: Just yoga and blockchain noncense (see what I did there?)

3/28/2018 - MOTD: Happily unemployed and contemplating my next adventure :). Made some great progress on what will likely be my first Haskell library on hackage. Still needs one more pass and thorough testing but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it. Doing lots of yoga too :o.

1/31/2018 - MOTD: I'm just updating this MOTD (again) to indicate that I still somewhat care about updating my website. Feeling older and happier. I'm not really making any art right now. I've been writing a little but I doubt I'll have anything blog-worthy anytime soon. Working on my first Haskell module which may see the light of day.

-It just occurred to me these changes logs might be mistaken for commit messages. If this were the case, these logs would look something more like "atoehusaon". Only dvorak users will understand D:.

5/17/2017 - MOTD: I'm just updating this MOTD to indicate that I still somewhat care about updating my website.

7/27/2016 - MOTD: Starting to include change notes with my updates. I like this because then I wont forget to updated the MOTD and people will know when the last time my site was updated and be able to determine with a greater degree of certainty whether my website has fallen into no-update hell or not. Deciding on the best format to do this. Currently deciding on lumping both together and storing at the bottom of this about page. Markdown code block formatting is annoying and weird but I'll just stick to what I have for now..

7/27/2016 - Change Log:

-changed code block font color to a dark gray.
-updated $1.81 to include Tor workshop in July. No pictures because I forgot to take them and lost my notes.
-updated $1.81 to include Mushroom workshop in July.
-updated formating in $1.81 to be more ugly so content is more visually differentiable at first glance.

6/30/2016 - MOTD: I forgot I'm suppose update my MOTD. I should probably add an update log too.

12/4/2015 - MOTD: I'm currenty taking a break from growing mushrooms to focus on making games and understanding online gaming communities. My next hobby/discipline will probably be taxidermy but Los Angeles is a bad place to find road kill.
