"In my lifetime I’ve died a few times. A couple of months ago I went out; they had to bring me back twice from death. Let me tell you something: when you die you ain’t taking your wallet with you up there! You ain’t even taking your underwear! " - Uncle Howie
printers are one fucking allegory for capitalism. it never works, has no diagnostics, is broken on purpose by manufacturers, consumes strictly licensed cartridges by the same corporation, often requires heavy as shit software that also never works, and overall has a ridiculous cost
Here's an oxymoron for you: a11y. Just write the damn word!
Lastly, here's a cute one: my then-two year old daughter playing with my long-sold TRS-80 Model 100.
People will argue that using DMs on here is unsafe because the admins of servers can view it. Arguably, you should use DMs for no more than you should be using them on any platform that doesn't encrypt them end to end, like Twitter.
It's about assessing your own operational security risk. Use DMs like private messages on Slack or a forum. Use Signal or another encrypted messenger if privacy is highly important.
So I'm trying that new Mastalab version from F-Droid. It has support for profile metadata now finally \o/
Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!
(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)
So i sent a bug report  a few days ago about this i915drm panic on #OpenBSD but was fairly clueless about the ddb output to provide.
Following @brynet advice on another distantly related issue, I have now what you can see here with the latest snapshot.
If you have in mind more infos I could add, let me know :)
job opportunity: technical recruiter Show more
Find My Flock is looking for a technical recruiter/third co-founder.
They are job placement agency dedicated to placing women and oppressed people with companies that are prioritizing diversity.
I have no affiliation with this company, but I've interacted with its founder several times, and she's always been incredibly kind and receptive to feedback as the site has rolled out.
I'm primarily a writer, photographer, and musician, who also enjoys some games (the less "gamer bro"-y the better).
I recently relocated to Oregon and am still figuring out what I'm going to do out here. I previous wrote about urban planning, transit, bikes, and architecture for an alt-weekly paper in Texas, as well as did IT work at a university.
I play keyboards in indie pop band The Crystal Furs: https://crystalfurs.bandcamp.com

basically, on twitter:
- mastodon has no rules let's all go there
- fuck they do we'll conquer it who do they think they are
- fuck they banned me again mastodon will be dead in a week
you can taste the salt and it's delicious
best toot yet literally goes like "shit we went there to shit on lgbt people and they're the admins" and it's so funny
For years I run firewalls using #OpenBSD pf(4). Today I've configured iptables on a Linux system:
- all packets are accepted by default
- install additional software to store firewall rules
- install additional software to get something like tables in pf(4)
- write some of the scripts yourself to get the rules stored and loaded automatically during shutdown / boot
What a crap!
