New to Mastodon, and this server too, so here's my !

I'm more of a than a prose writer, but I dabble in both. My poems have been published in a handful of mags, and a couple of thick books. essentially a in my spare time.

Im currently working on:
🚀a epic
🌳ecopoems, and poems generally

During the day I manage servers and build infrastructure for clients, specialising in , , and all sorts.

Lovely to meet you all!

@wickertongue a very random question: any chance you know of someone who works with devops exclusively without a physical keyboard? 😁

@cregox ha! By physical keyboard do you mean a mechanical keyboard? The guy I work with works on his laptop keyboard, so there's one for a start - but I admit, I love the clack-clack of a mechanical.

@wickertongue nope. i mean physical keyboard in opposition to virtual keyboard such as on mobile phones...

i usually say #mobileonly because i still couldn't find a good name for this...

i do all my computing exclusively on cellphones, like most people/users today (and virtually no dev, it looks like), and i really miss a software stack to do simple things in mobile...

not because it can't exist, but just because nobody seem to care to do it yet!

since your interests seem to converge into eco, sci-fi, and devops, and you come from outside my circle, i just tried to reach out a bit. 😁

thanks for the feedback.

@cregox oh - virtual keyboard would have been more clear for me, actually. If you'd said something like 'do you know anyone that uses virtual keyboards for work' I'd have known what you meant. :)

I don't - I think people still like the physicality of manual, physical keyboards for development. It's why laptops are used for work, and not tablets - I think most people find it difficult using a board that doesn't give them physical feedback.

@wickertongue i can envision a mix among unexpected keyboard, swype, and some ideas from characoder to make an unbeatable vkeyboard.

physical feedback (pf) feels necessary when the keyboard gets very distant from eye sight. i dont need pf for gboard. i do need to get away from googe though.
