I gave that up when I realized my health was deteriorating.
Health permitting, I'm back.
I'll still answer to "Rooney" and "Captain Jak" and a bunch of others.
Don't deadname me.

Please read this post before you pledge.
I'm a laid back individual with a passion for technology, music, and blacksmithing.
I'm a trans genderfluid semi-professional know-it-all and part time technomancer.
I break software on Linux servers by day, and by night, I try to fix the bugs in the open source projects that I managed to break during the day.
I'm a tech/practical scifi sort of individual, but as long as you're down to hear a lot of "oh, lemme go read Wikipedia for fifteen minutes while juggling my other conversations so I can have an informed opinion on the topic", I'm totally down to discuss anything you want. I am on multiple types of social media, feel free to look for @jakimfett.
I am trying to get enough funding to work as a full time open source developer.
I have 20+ years of experience with computers and a startup to back my knowledge.
When I'm not at the computer, you may find me at the local blacksmith shop hammering out the details of a coathook or a pair of tongs, or elbows deep in my latest Raspberry Pi or Arduino project.
I also enjoy hiking, playing with Legos, and wood carving, not necessarily in that order (or all at once).
Thank you for your support and your efforts to make the world a better place.
