I am the sysadmin at a plastics company. You can follow the saga at #SysadminLife (or mute if you're just here for the pets).
Interests: quilting, maps, crochet, word puzzles, board games, sf, music.
I always CW these topics: food, medical, politics, eye contact. I always provide image descriptions. White supremacists and TERFs will be blocked on sight.
I've contacted John Valves for a product number and info sheet if they can provide one, or even just some info about what it does. But I'm pretty sure @peemee and @smallsees have it sussed and it's an air-valve. If anyone knows why they'd be installed 300m apart up and down my street, I'd be interested to know what they're doing.
anyway, here's a tutorial I've been working on recently about Inform 7 (a commonly used language for making interactive fiction): http://catn.decontextualize.com/inform7/
it takes a somewhat unusual(?) route through the material, showing you how to implement your own actions, properties and relations before showing you how to use the built-in stuff (like "take lamp" and "go north"). I think this approach makes it easier to understand how Inform's syntax and the standard rules/world model actually work
Working with the creator of #PHP, you sometimes get deep lore like "the original function hashing mechanism was strlen(), so I named the early functions so as to spread them out evenly in the hash table"
