Hello, I registered under the name “MDude” before, but didn’t get around to posting, and it seems that account was blocked due to inactivity or something? In any case, I figure that’s no reason not to say something now, so I made a replacement account. Interested in hearing of the technical aspects of it, less sure if I’d enjoy life on a floating city. Especially if it was more of a floating mall, I wouldn’t see it as home so much as a nice place to visit. If not accommodating entirely private, in-home workshops, I’d at least like to live somewhere with ready access to a hackerspace. Rooms that show the guts of a structure tend to feel rather welcoming to me, so it’d be nice to enter such places, and I guess laying cable for IT stuff on could be a good excuse often enough. Really, though, I think I could benefit form the development of seasteads even if I don’t personally live on one.
Really? The reason I thought the original account was blocked was because after I successfully reset the password, I couldn’t log in, and even resetting several times it make sure I hadn’t made some mistake and later just typed out the password to copy/paste it into the login field didn’t work, it still just caused the login box to shake some bar with a red stripe on the end to show up:
To me, this seemed to indicate the account being blocked, not sure what else it could be. I reset the password before I even tried to remember it, but maybe the system just doesn’t like passwords with hyphens or something, as I only tried a different one when making the new account.
