gnu 

Finding some subtle irony that I can't find a trademark registration for gnu in the software landscape.

Or the Free Software Foundation, for that matter.

Do with this information what you will.

Looking for audio player recommendations 

@eldang I'm still using all of my devices and love it. I wish Logitech had stuck with it but they didn't understand what they had and tried to turn it into more of a consumer product (which was correct, but not a good long-term solution)

@Juju And throwing a ball in a way where it isn't hit is also considered good.

Looking for audio player recommendations 

@eldang (addendum: the software is still supported and developed by the community).

Looking for audio player recommendations 

@eldang Logitech Squeezebox, but unfortunately Logitech discontinued them.

The Radio and Touch would fit the bill, and requires a server to run.

re: vaccine update (personal) 

@mwlucas Funnily enough I married into an Enya collection, and I don't consider that a bad thing at all.

Plot spoiler, soap boxing, nazi, cthulhu 

@saramg Trail of Cthulhu (Ken Hite) has a great admonishment:

"if the powers of the Mythos exist, surely people as bent as the Nazis would be looking
into it... But it runs the risk of sliding into “Nyarlathotep invented the Nazis,” or worse yet “Nyarlathotep magicked the Nazis into being so evil.” This trivializes the decade’s human history of genocide and oppression, turns real living atrocities into pulp supervillainy, and lets us all off the hook."

(Explaining the joke: I fully respect but do not normally listen to the music of three of the aforementioned bands. It's an exercise for the reader to figure out the fourth).

Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!

gnu.tools

This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.

#GNU contributors: consider joining!

#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!

@n8 (My most common license is CC-BY-ND or CC-BY-NC-ND, which gives you an idea of the opinion of the metal community on remixing. 😁 )

@n8 Finished tracks and albums. Metal folks don't generally publish stems like EDM does.

vaccine update (personal) 

I feel fine. A little sore, but otherwise fine.

Am setting up a playlist of ABBA, Bee Gees, Beach Boys, and The Eagles. Man, why have these never been in my library before?

@n8 And folks wonder why I only use Bandcamp for Open Metalcast. 😁

@TheGibson Does that mean we'd all receive Corn Chex?

I'll see myself out.

What you refer to as Linux is actually Linux because it's 2021 and the canceled itself out.

@juliobiason Godspeed. I'm not looking forward to this when 3.6 and 2.2 age out.

@zkat As someone who couldn't even make it past Etrian Odyssey (the original) without wanting to throw the wandering monsters into the sun I salute your tenacity.
