2. what would you name your future kids? - I don’t want to have kids but if I did, I’d give them unique names, something new and interesting. Probably a good thing I don’t want them haha

15. personality description - Boring know it all who can be funny in the right situation

23. fear(s) - I only have one fear, and it terrifies me indescribably. My own death.

25. role model - I have quite a few really, depends on what I’m doing at the time. I really admire the open software movement though so Linus Torvalds, Richard Stallman, and Jimmy Wales, all in their own way are role models for me.

40. favourite memory - I don’t think I have one haha, so much happens it would be hard to pick a favourite and I prefer to think of the future rather than the past

43. favourite song ever - My music taste always changes haha so the answer to this question does as well. If I had to give one though, I’d say Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull.

47. turn ons - I always get turn ons and kinks confused so I’ll go with the lighter answers haha. In all honesty I understand very little about myself and questions like this are incredibly difficult for me to answer. I can never describe what I like in a person or why I develop crushes, it’s all extremely confusing to me and I’ve only found one linking aspect. If I find somebody attractive, I also find them very intriguing, unique and quirky. Strange people get my attention. That’s the only thing I’ve worked out so far haha

Thank you for the questions, I was really hoping somebody would send an ask along!

My laptop is just over a year old now as I installed my OS last year on the 5th of March.

In that time my file system has had 1521 GB of writes done to it which I find pretty shocking. I’ve only used 60 GB of my actual hard drive space so it’s really amazing to see how things accumulate haha.

My laptop has also been turned on 593 times in the last year.

I’ve been asked to do a presentation on a project I’ve been doing next week for quite a few academic staff and a few classes.

I basically set up a corporate level network infrastructure but on a single Raspberry Pi rather than big servers. Interesting way to end the semester.
