Hi, I'm packetcat!

I have been on the fediverse since April 2017 so it feels strange to be writing a introduction post but here we are.

I am a huge nerd who is into video games, competitive Overwatch and computer networking. I have a podcast with my amazing friend @chosafine called Shades of Brown.

I also have a couple blogs, Asinine Tech and Irreverent Space.

Last but not least, I run a IRC network called EntropyNet!

man I forgot about the GTX 970 memory debacle

that was like a major scandal, and as Steve mentions there was even a successful trust action lawsuit against NVIDIA for the issue

( NVIDIA advertised card with 4GB of VRAM but the 970 actually had 3.5GB of standard VRAM and 512MB of slower VRAM )
