Greetings denizens! I ran my own instance for a while until it ate itself :) In that time I saw that some of the most interesting denizens of the Fediverse originated from this community! I love chatting about just about anything but especially , retro-computing, games, and science fiction, or Freemasonry. I build clouds by day and chase bright shiny things by night :) I look forward to engaging with you all!

I can't be an insider.
Tight focus not my chore.
More and ever wider
Breadth, not depth. Explore!

Original, unique.
It's something we might seek.
Trying to be our very best.
But I'll again be different by next week.


Easily 99% of the time I see mainstream gamers converse on Twitter, it makes me want to hurl. Why is this one group of computer users permanently lodged in the 70s? These people are so ragingly sexist they make me feel like Tommy Perfect (and I am not.)

@TheGibson @gdkar I just figured out what y'all were on about yesterday with ZOMBLOAD :) It amuses me that these exploits are getting more and more acrobatic with Intel parallel execution hijinx :)

@phildini Really loved your Pycon talk! It's the perfect answer to "Why should I look at Mastodon?" for techies!

If y'all don't like transgender people then you'd better stop using your phone

Literally, almost all phones use ARM processors, and guess who designed the instruction set for the original ARM processor?

Well, I officially expressed to Purism that I no longer want to continue my contract work at Purism today. Now I need to figure out where to go from here.

Holy fuck I made myself a fine bed of nails today. Miraculously, I seem to be bouncing on it with nary a scratch. So far :)

@novshmozkapop Is this THE Noah Friedman? :) The guy I helped haul hardware across tech square to the FSF from Concentra where I worked in days of yore when we both had WAY more hair? :) Welcome to the fediverse!

I like the name "snitch-tagging." But I do not like the practice. If you are concerned someone's being harmed in a conversation in which they're not involved, you speak to them privately, or you speak to a moderator.

I have pretty much never seen anyone tag another user into a conversation about them with good intentions. But I have definitely seen it used as a vector for harassment.

@gray Hi Gray! Love the Masto address :) What aspect of privacy interests you?

So I've gotta say I'm kinda torn. I really love . I also really enjoy and think I'd prefer working in C++ over C. Yet I feel like all the momentum in the desktop is going to . So it's somewhat of a conundrum to decide which ecosystem I want to try to train myself to be able to contribute to :)

Cookie simply did not approve of my super clicky mechanical keyboard :)

Holy crap allergies are making me feel like my head's gonna blow apart.

Note to self: When I am feeling super crappy from allergies, and end up taking mucinex, drinking coffee on top of that is a BAD idea. No idea biscuit.
