Pinned toot

📌 2020 pin update!

I'm Mary. Medical doctor by day, low-level developer by night. I enjoy taking both mechanical or biological things apart and putting them back together again.

My recent major public projects mainly concern console emulation, see:

Other interests:
- Radiophysics, Radiology, Radiotherapy, and associated fields
- Audio and DSP
- Compilers, JITs and type systems

DMs open!

Leveling but the more experience you gain your base stats go down

At least this time it's at a hopsital I'm familiar with on a job I'm vaguely familiar with……… at least pre-COVID.

Show more, your cosy queer space is a mastodon instance for those who are queer or queer-adjacent who would like a more pleasant social media experience.
