I'm looking for anyone who'd be willing to be interviewed or have a chat about their experiences of using technology in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s as part of a #DigiPres project to document the growth and change in that time.

Please drop me a reply or DM if you're interested.

Who am I looking for? Software people, gamers, enthusiasts, fellow nerds... anyone who used and/or loved technology around the start of the PC boom and birth of the WWW around the world.

hey @kde folks, does plasma mobile still work for nexus 5? I've been stuck in an install loop forever, and have only been seeing stuff about the 5X (though I remember the original release was done on the 5, no?)

What's a good modern phone that has an unlockable bootloader? I got the Huawei Honor v10 like 2 years ago when they said the bootloader was unlockable and now trying to unlock it, they've gone back on that promise.

I just wanna try Plasma Mobile :blobouin:

If you don't watch a series in its entirety, you're not a *true fan*.

If you watch a series in its entirety, you're still not a *true fan*.

You're only a *true fan* if you're powered by electricity, have multiple blades, and spin around really fast.

Librarians of the Fediverse: I'm looking for discussion / references on catalogs, cataloguing, ontologies and classifications, etc.

I've been working with the FreeLCC / FreeLCSH files from LoC, and am looking _as a researcher/author_ for ways to better organise my own research materials, projects, and writings.

I'm vaguely familiar with the area, but would appreciate references to practices/concepts.

Boosts appreciated.
