My name is Julie Marchant. You may know me as "onpon4", which was the username I exclusively used for several years. More recently, I have taken to primarily using "Julie.chan" or "The Diligent Circle".
I am reasonably well-known in the libre software community as a libre game developer. I developed and maintain the SGE Game Engine, and I have also developed several libre games, most of which use said engine. Languages I currently know well are Python, C, and Lua; Python is the language I prefer for the most part.
In addition to programming, I have an affinity for the Japanese language. My Japanese proficiency is not that great, especially considering how long I have been studying it on and off, but I can hold a very basic conversation okay. Gaining fluency in Japanese is one of my major goals.
My day job is nothing too glamorous: I'm just a humble cashier. I actually love cashiering, though, so I am quite happy with this situation and I take great pride in my work.
- If you guessed that my favorite color is purple, you guessed correctly.
- I love jewelry, and I sometimes make my own bracelets as a hobby.
- I love spiders. They're adorable, and they eat pests. Don't hurt innocent spiders! 😠
- I also love cats, despite being mildly allergic to them (nothing serious, they just make my eyes and nose itch).
- Spicy food is my life. I love spicy food. I usually use a ghost pepper sauce to make things spicy, and I get extra-hot at Thai places.
- Thai food is my favorite kind of food. Other international foods I like a lot are Mexican and Chinese (of course).
- As far as American foods go, Buffalo wings are easily my favorite. I make my Buffalo wings by frying them, unbreaded, in coconut oil, then covering them with the Buffalo wing sauce. It's delicious and healthy at the same time!
