Hi, I'm Eli --

I live in Maine, where I like to spend time with my family, cook, hike, and read rule-books for table-top rpgs like Follow, and Lady Blackbird.

I enjoy playing with Raspberry Pis, micro controllers, JavaScript, Common LISP, Emacs and a whole heap of other webby-techy things.

I work as a software developer responsible for web development and quality assurance testing. I very much like to write documentation.

Whereas toy cars are aspirational objects, it is about right that the grocery store nearest to my house has a display filled with mid-2000s Toyota Camrys...with sun roofs.

Is pagination broken?

Why is the most recent page 1? Shouldn’t the oldest, or “first?” page be 1 — working up, towards the present? This way paginated urls could remain consistent. If something shows up on page 4, it’ll always be on page 4 forever and ever.

I had no ideas there were *so* many playsets for Fiasco...

(GrafX2 is awesome, but I'd love something a bit more limiting...a la Pico-8...now realizing I should probs just use Pico-8)

I drew this terrible boat using GrafX2. Looking for suggestions for applications a bit better suited to creating pixel art. Linux, macOS, or (last resort) iOS. Many thanks.

I know it isn't the new hotness, but, you all...I really really like jQuery
