I'm Marrub, also known as Allie, Graham`, or マブマブ. My real name is Alison Watson. I identify as non-binary femme, and I prefer feminine pronouns.
My birthday is May 9. Send me your sacrifices and offerings of peace on this day or I shall unravel my true power upon the world and curse your bloodline for 3 generations.
I'm interested in programming, drawing, photography, music and language and have been self-taught in all of these fields due to issues dealing with school. Some more specific areas of interest of mine in programming include game engines, reverse engineering, and compilers. I also like emulation a lot, though I don't think I'll ever write a fully working emulator.
If you really want to know more it would be best to just get to know me. I won't bite, so drop me a line. (Wait, isn't that backwards?) Or you can just stalk me on whatever and glean information from that like a weirdo. (I can relate.)
My programming languages of choice are Rust, Ruby, Racket, C, and assembly. I also am somewhat skilled in in Python, C++, Lua, and OCaml. Automation languages I'm somewhat skilled in include Bash, awk, sed, Make, Ninja, Meson, CMake, and Regex. Scripting languages I'm skilled in include ZScript and AngelScript. Assembly variants I'm skilled in include 6502 and Z80.
I enjoy web development even though I hate actually working with such technologies and ecosystems. The Internet is one of the most vital parts of my life, so being able to simply create anything I want on it is wonderful.
What I enjoy more, though, is writing code for games, being able to craft an entire experience from the ground up is a task that is both difficult and fun to me. I don't really play videogames that often, but making them is something I try to do often.
You can find my projects on the main page.
Making this page's text be rainbows was a pain in the ass, so I'm not removing it even if it is a bit hard to read.
I suck at drawing. I wish I were good at it, though.
I probably suck at photography, too, but I do really enjoy taking pictures of things. Especially nature, I want to share and have nice memories of our beautiful earth.
I love listening to music. I'm almost always listening to something, normal or avant-garde, I have to have something playing to be productive at anything.
I also sometimes mess around with making music. I suck though.
Learning and understanding language, foreign and native, and the history of language is something I do consciously and unconsciously. I didn't learn much history in school, but the history of language can teach you a lot about the history of the world without trying.
I've studied English (of course,) Old Irish, Russian, Greek, Japanese, Middle English, and Ancient Egyptian. Of those, I know how to write (but not read) Ogham, read Russian cyrillic, read and write the Greek alphabet, and I can to some extent read, write and speak Japanese.
Of course, my native language is English. Apparently I learned some backwards southern dialect which I've been trying to get out of me for years now. I also seem to misspell a lot of common words which is odd to me.
