To those who have sent me follow requests:

It's nothing personal if I reject your request. It's that I want to keep my account on Octodon more personal & I don't know you well enough to be comfortable accepting your request.

If you want me to get to know you, you can follow me on my social.coop account (@ND3JR) which is public. Then after we interact you can try again and you'll have a better chance of your request getting accepted.

I guess I'm lucky: I've only been misgendered twice since growing my hair out. Before I grew a beard one girl came up to me and asked, "Are you a boy or a girl?" I wanted to ask her, "Does it matter?"

Don’t point people to videos for them to learn Unixy stuff. In fact just stop making those videos.

Toxic masculinity. Does that mean all masculinity is bad? No! Not at all.

This comic explains it fairly well. The term Toxic Masculinity is from Social Sciences, to help explain certain problems in the current image of Masculinity, which hurts both men and women.

@Ayior @hund Why? Do you need one? Are you want to be connected 100% all the time? Seriously people lived decades without smartphones and now they are Crazy! Wonder why.... (this comment is not about you btw, it's just my general observation about "smart devices").

Figured I'd post some pictures of Freyja I took last week when messing around with my camera on a tabletop tripod. These are the JPEGs created by the camera that reflect what I saw on the viewscreen. I had it set to monochrome for scene composition, so that's why they're in black-and-white.

I also have the raw NEF files of these pictures, and I'll toot those after I process them. Those will be in color.

A question mostly directed at @nivex but open to anyone: where are some docs to learn about IPv6? I'm asking a someone who's tried going IPv6 in the past but never completely followed through.

It doesn't help that my DSL modem manufacturer wants to treat IPv6 like IPv4 by requiring NAT in order to use IPv6.

if you’re ever feeling down and unmotivated, i’m cheering for you. yes that’s me outside your window with the pom poms. no, i won’t leave, and no i don’t care if you’re calling the police. i’m getting closer every passing moment. your heart is pounding with fear and you’re checking the locks on your windows and doors in panic
