Hia. I'm Alexandria. You may know me from the Slack or from such projects as:
Koios - a universal database-free file tagger
Zhmenu - a robust featureful dmenu-like replacement and input method
Wisp - A fast, smart, lispy HTML output language
SpotifyC (WIP) - C Interface to the Spotify Web API and Spotify command line client
Boosts would be deeply appreciated as more users = less bugs.

Trainer in der Projektmanagement Schulung empfiehlt immer grün zu melden egal wie rot das Projekt ist
Grund: Es gebe Untersuchungen die belegen, dass PMs, die immer grün melden bessere Karrierechancen haben als die, die gelb oder rot melden wenn nötig
(if that sounds interesting to you, https://challenge.synacor.com/ is similar (it's also very transparently a recruiting tool, but it's fun anyway), and I can vouch for more than the initial concept on that one - made it to the seventh or eighth password before I got sidetracked building a debugging/reversing tool in Rust)
finally got around to starting http://boundvariable.org/ - didn't get too far because I had other things to do, but it felt really good to do some non-work programming
This is bizarre but true: in older (and by that I mean largely pre-1900) English printed alphabets, the character & was printed at the end, and was memorized as a 27th character.
It was recited in the alphabet as "per se and", meaning "'and' by itself". So the end of the alphabet went "X, Y, Z, and per se and."
The phrase "and per se and" eventually got contracted - and is how we got today's name for the symbol: ampersand.
I like robots, obsolete technology, and terrible puns.
