I used to do Minecraft stuff.
I gave that up when I realized my health was deteriorating.
Health permitting, I'm back.

Hi.
I'm Tessa.
I'll still answer to "Rooney" and "Captain Jak" and a bunch of others.
Don't deadname me.

(Trump supporters and neo-nazis can go kick rocks, in bare feet, while wading in lemon juice.)


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.

Before talking to me, please read this legal document.



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.

I'm a disabled individual on the Autism spectrum.
Please be aware that when I communicate:
  • Directness is greatly appreciated.
  • I can't read your body language.
  • I sometimes take things very literally.
  • Additional clarification will sometimes be needed.
