Deja Moo: The feeling that you have heard this BS before.

A long time ago at a college far far away :) I wrote a paper for a humanities class comparing the Dayton Hamvention to a religious pilgrimage.

I emailed a copy to the Hamvention staff that year just for their amusement. I was rather surprised when they published it on hamvention.org!

I have not yet made it to the new site in Xenia. Someday.

i think i can safely say that my life has become noticeably better without docker

"More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginnings of all war." -- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Any folks who can't make it to Hamvention this weekend doing anything special on the bands?

I may have been doing digital too long. I heard a couple of spring peepers talking to each other outside this evening and thought "Who uses AMTOR anymore?!"

Awoo Show more

QOTD: An action being "punishable by fine" basically means "legal for rich people".

This blog hasn't been updated since 2015, and it's Linux-oriented, but INCONSOLATION is a good starting point for anybody looking to use command-line apps instead of GUIs on Unix-like systems because they want to party like it's 1989.

If I could convince Mastodon at large of only one thing, it would be this:

if you see someone complaining, DO NOT give them advice.

If someone ASKS for advice, offer it.

But 90% of the time, someone complaining is just venting. They're not telling you the whole story, and they're not receptive to being given advice, because in that mental state, your "good-natured advice" is their "HERE'S HOW YOU'RE DOING THIS WRONG".

Do not respond with advice unless it's asked for.

"Coder, what is best in life?"

Coder: "To crush your issues list, see them disappear before you, and to hear the merging of their pull requests!"

"Fight me," the knight called.
"No," the dragon yawned.
"You must!"
"No."
"But it is your purpose!"
"In your story, not mine. Tell another."

"Before you can discuss the state of the world with anyone," the eagle said, "make sure you both live in the same reality."
"Explain to me how to do that," said the sea lion.
