Hello

Cats

Two:

  • Billski Squeakelstiltskin a.k.a. Billy
  • Pickle, whose surname, if ever there was one, seems to be forgotten at the moment.

For here in Phabricator, maybe the most useful thing to mention is that I'm dyslexic. (I was told, in my thirties, by a learning support tutor at University. Not my tutor – she was a fellow employee. I was doubtful, at first, because I'm OK with spelling … after I read some books on the subject, various things from my past began to make sense.)

I don't think of the dyslexia as a disability, however it does shape the ways in which I learn. Critically:

  • if learning goes wrong, then it might be endlessly difficult (or impossible) to correct the thinking.

For my sanity: I'll sometimes mentally block documentation, if there's that risk of wrongness, which might be not what you want to hear from a doc committer, but there it is :-)

I rarely mention the dyslexia, so that's a bit of weird introduction, if you never met me in person. Better to think of me as a cat man, and …

… a nano man. Truth: I nearly wept when I found myself presented with vi in mutt on freefall.

Blah, blah, blah.
