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!

@clayote LISE looks utterly fascinating!!! My co-host and I interviewed the author of Ren'Py on - Super interesting guy and engine!

Just moved my Plex server from my overloaded NAS to a beefy LXC container hosted by ProxMox on my beefy former gaming laptop (I9 - 32G RAM). Loving how my media just pops now :)

Using OpenOffice? Getting messages like "This document was created by a newer version of OpenOffice"? If so, the document was probably created in LibreOffice, a successor project with many extra features and updates. LibreOffice 7.0 introduced ODF 1.3, an updated document format:

London fox, from tonight’s walk. A mature and experienced one - wary but not at all shy or nervous - trotting along the street with regular pauses to check the vibe.

Is pandemic burnout a thing? I don't feel like my work has been PARTICULARLY bruising of late but I am definitely having more than the usual amount of difficulty trying to focus. I suspect loss of my beloved aerobic exercise is at least one culprit. Haven't figured out how to make that happen in our 1000ft square box yet :)

...if you are reading this and tired of the fear, start doing something small every day, every day forever, for someone near you who needs it.

IMO programming languages that don't include a REPL should be illegal :) If I can't noodle around interactively to figure things out, I'm out. :)

Wow the Window ecosystem is damnably unfriendly (shocker, I know) - My Alienware 17 R5 is out of warranty, the stock Windows 10 installer won't work (it claims there are missing media drivers and I can't figure out which drivers it wants) and Dell/Alienware don't offer custom restore media for it. So, my 2 year old laptop can't be brought back to factory settings. *shrug* installing ProxMox on it now and maybe it'll become a new Plex/Blender server :)

A few years back I named my laptop "Yamato" after the giant cheeky floating battle ship from the 1970s/80s anime Star Blazers. In fact, the word originates from Japanese culture, particularly WWII era where it was called the "Yamato spirit" which, among other things translated to thousands of utterly senseless Japanese suicides when it became clear that the allies WERE going to win. Gotta admit I'm feeling a bit sick right now. Gonna find a new name for the laptop :\ (Learned about this on Dan Carlin's Amazing Hardcore History podcast)

Please consider boosting.

This is me screaming across the fediverse. I'm looking for people that used the original Seesmic before the service was shut down in 2009. I feel like if I were to reconnect with anyone from there, they'd be on the fediverse in 2020.

For context, Seesmic was a cross between YouTube and Twitter. Micro-video blogging with threaded conversations, no commenting, only videos.

I feel with a custom PeerTube instance we can maybe recreate what once was, what do you think?

Because I know a lot of folks on here care about , is looking for financial support. They've been a huge supporter of the creative arts online FOREVER. I just joined and thought others should know.

My god. Biden just might have a shot at winning this. He's not my candidate, and WOW I wish we could get something other than an elderly white man in the white house, but I'll still be super happy and grateful if he wins. Maybe at the very least it'll encourage the Proud Boys and KKK and whatever other hatemongers are currently feeling emboldened to crawl back under the rocks they came from.

Dear fellow Americans: Please don't forget to take a giant step back and BREATHE today. Hyperventilating will not help your favorite candidate win.

Not really feeling it the last few days.. But I managed this doodle during a train ride yesterday.

Everybody getting their flu shot? Just because we're living in fear of COVID-19 doesn't mean we get to ignore good old fashioned influenza :)

So yeah Gitea is a pretty amazing piece of software. All you need is a machine to run it on and you can take posession of any source code you have on any public servers and it'll get mirrored down automatically going forward. If you care about your creations that's good insurance to have no matter what your feelings on cloud hosted versus self hosted.

Don't you hate it when you bother a busy co-worker for something, get what you need from them, and then some time later, realize you should have darn well known that thing yourself? I HATE that! :)
