You would think that I'd be pissed. But no, I actually respect it. Difficult to not get tracked online in this day and age, so, y'know what? I appreciate your decision. Keep it up, buddy, you're doing great! Do know that, when making this website, I did my best efforts to not make it rely on JavaScript too much (and in fact, only added gimmicks in JS, but while I do not put trackers on here (with the possible exception for cdn.jsdelivr.net for the MIDI player), there still are some features (mainly gimmicks) that'll be missing (notably themes and platform integrations, the latter can be seen below).
Your choice on who to trust.

It seems you are on a phone.

I am very, very, very, very, very sorry that this is how you'll have to experience this with a phone.
From my testing, the website works fine, but some elements may not be very good, or outright disabled. For example, I had to disable the backgrounds and website themes since they just didn't work and, in fact, showed graphical glitches on my device.

on other platforms, I...

can't connect to my media trackers

normally I would say what I've been listening to or been watching, but I probably haven't loaded the results yet. actually, you had the time to read this, so that's likely never gonna happen. (or you need better Internet)

have been unable to play games

seems like I cannot tell what I've been recently playing on Steam. if they would have had a straightforward API...

am cut off of media services

I would tell you my most recent Mastodon post, but turns out I can't reach linuxrocks.online, my current instance.

Your adblocker's on.

And I fucking appreciate it.
Thank you for being someone with common sense. Seriously, an ad blocker is probably the least you can do, but also the most significant difference you can make.
Not only are they just plain annoying, but they also induce a lot more tracking and telemetry. We all know that's just not good, and honestly that's not even my biggest problem with ads. They just fucking suck, straight up. They aren't effective for what they are, and sometimes even cause more harm than good.
Oh, and no, the ad blocker that "comes with your web browser" doesn't count. By the way, fuck Brave. Opera and Vivaldi are just stupid, at least...
Somehow, ads have been on here for longer than I have ever existed, and 12 year olds are still likely to see porn/hentai ads in the 2020's while browsing on the Internet. I say this from personal experience. Google has had all the knowledge in the world that I was a minor (13 at the time) and I still received anime dating games with NSFW ad thumbnails on YouTube (so I have to pay to not see ads, how ironic). How is this legal.

All in all, thank you for being a sensible fucking person in the world. You're doing great.
PS: my favorite adblocker is uBlock Origin and Blokada 5, but really, most ad blockers are roughly the same thing.

so, what do I do..?

I do general human things, such as: sleep, wake up and hate life, eat, use a bathroom, and hope to not be a threat to other people. Unless that other person's an asshole, in which case I'll gladly be a threat in return.
I also enjoy technology and music, find that being creative is fun, and gladly like to play some games when time allows.
Another thing that I like doing is spending time mostly on decentralized social media, mostly Mastodon. Discord sits in no man's land for me, and if anything, I hate it for what it is. On that topic, social engineering is definitely something that's been on my interests for the past year or so.
If I'm not doing any that, then I'm likely listening to metal music, or just tinkering around with Linux computers and servers, or listening to metal music and writing nerdy code stuff.
PS: I also hate using Windows, an OS that makes me feel like I'm renting a computer I bought full-price. Seriously, pay for ads. What the fuck.

what's "atlas_core", or "rightmouse.click"?

"atlas core" has a pretty simple meaning as a reference to one of my favorite games, Portal 2. In that game, there's a co-op mode, where 2 players can complete levels together (or not, and just mess around with stuff) (from experience, we mostly messed around). The characters, Atlas and P-body, all look like other entities in the game; Atlas looks like an Aperture Science core, whereas P-body looks like a turret.
Would P-body be "P-turret"?..wait, no, that sounds like something else.

The term "right mouse click" (as in rightmouse.click) was just some creative name I tried coming up with when looking at domains and their ends (.com, .co, .me, etc). I didn't want to go with something too basic, so I found "click" to be quite interesting. I tried coming up with sentences with that, and thought of "left mouse click". That happened to be taken, so I went with the right mouse click.
Hmm, I could probably turn this website into some anti-NFT thing.. maybe I will.

Chair.

Say hi to him. :)
Brief history, early 2020: I wanted to do a quick sketch of a chair in GIMP, and for no reason decided to add cat ears. Turned out that it looked more like a cat than a chair, so it became a cat named Chair from now on.
Mid 2020: I remade Chair to be cleaner, and now that's the image I use as a profile pic everywhere now. For the better.

Personal projects

Stuff I have worked on previously. And probably gave up on.

Dotty

A simple and addictive, arcade-like game where you collect dots, written in C++ with Raylib, although taking code inspiration from another game, Terri-Fried.
Probably my proudest work, I highly recommend you check it out!

Drop

What used to be a Discord bot, that later got turned into a core library and a Discord bot.
Abandoned due to the main bot's discontinuation (Discord being garbage) and due to horrible memories with some people related to my Discord experience.

Bloxify

A Roblox module that allows the player to interact with the Spotify API from in-game as a potential substitute for game soundtrack or overlay.
Abandoned due to lack of motivation and not really having a way to authenticate. Oh, and because I now use YT Music.

Outsyncer

A CLI-based app meant to synchronize songs from one device to another, but that can also be used to sort song files elegantly
Mostly sitting in unfinished limbo; I myself didn't find the need to continue this...

roblox-sound-replacer

A Python side-project that I had that quickly put together that replaces Roblox's local sound assets.
Not really abandoned; it still works, just not updated.

multiHelloWorld

An attempt at writing "Hello world" programs in multiple languages, as many as I could in early 2020.
This was actually my first codey-code project ever!
