Featured Thing: The Inauguration

I recently uploaded my first real YouTube video in years. It's an audio drama called The Inauguration, in which a radio station reporting on a presidential inauguration soon finds itself reporting on the end of the world. You can watch it on YouTube or PeerTube.

My Homepage

Obviously, this site is very much under construction. This is just a project I'm doing to learn HTML and CSS. There's nothing interesting here. I'd say that it feels nice to have my own corner of the Web, but it's not mine since I'm not self-hosting, and even if it were, it definitely wouldn't be any of the four corners. I use LaTeX by the way.

I'm Galactipod, and I've been Galactipod since I created my Minecraft account back in 2012. I was 7 years old at the time. In toki pona, you can also call me jan Kalatopo. I've been making horrific niche videos on YouTube since 2016, and I've been writing equally horrific programs since 2020. I typically write desktop applications and the occasional script on ROBLOX, but I try to leave my comfort zone every so often. Writing self-congratulating autobiographies for the internet isn't quite within my comfort zone.

In order from "almost proficient" to... well, not, here's a list of the programming languages that I use:

  1. Python, when I need to quickly write a script for something.
  2. Lua, for my Roblox games.
  3. C#, my preferred language for desktop applications.
  4. JS/CSS, for webdev stuff. Node is a sin.
  5. Java, a C# alternative that's almost good.
  6. Assembly (NASM and a weird float-only hybrid of x86 ASM and C)
  7. C/C++, when I want to use something harder than Assembly.

I tried Rust out once but didn't really stick with it. I should use it more; I really enjoyed the workflow, especially the package manager. I also want to find a reason to use less common languages like Perl, Pascal, Ruby, et cetera.
