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!


speaking of live performances at the 2020 BRIT Awards, this one from Celeste is great too

Northernlion's current Frostpunk run is about to end in complete disaster and honestly I can't wait for that episode

Dave - Black (Live at The BRITs 2020)

saw this on r/hiphopheads and man what a performance

Psychodrama is also a fantastic album and the Best Alum of the Year award for it is well deserved

Switched on Pop - Return Of The Guitar: Halsey, 5 Seconds of Summer, Joji

every time I hear the new Joji track it gets even better, its so good

what else did I read in my early teens? hmm let's see

a bunch of the Clive Cussler books, the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer, a bunch of the Animorphs books

reading the Wikipedia page on Dan Brown and it talks about the Angels & Demons movie which I had forgotten about

it fucking sucked, I remember going to the movie theatre excited to watch it and it was terrible

Show thread

its been a while since I've read a Dan Brown book

I've read the first two books in the Robert Langdon series and also Digital Fortress and Deception Point when I was a teenager (jfc now I feel old)

looks like I've missed two more Robert Langdon books, The Lost Symbol (2009) and Inferno (2013)

and reading Origin now, the style is immediately familiar, he isn't deviating from the formula he set in Angels & Demons (this is fine honestly, it works well)

Show thread

reading Origin by Dan Brown

I didn't know there was another Robert Langdon novel after The Da Vinci Code but this apparently came out in 2017

saw it on Overdrive and borrowed it through there

page 267, Chapter 8: A New Metaphor:

"Like the big collaborative projects of the internet, such as Wikipedia and Firefox, like the decentralized network of websites and machines that make up the internet itself, language is a network, a web. Language is the ultimate participatory democracy. To put it in technological terms, language is humanity's most spectacular open source project."
