I have a neighbor who screams violently and pounds the walls every day multiple times a day and I absolutely cannot wait to move away from him

It's funny how I just absolutely cannot eat oats. I haven't been able to digest gluten for almost a decade, but even certified gluten-free oats act like devils

Trying to think of a talk proposal for No Time To Wait! 4... 🤔🤔🤔 mediaarea.net/NoTimeToWait4

"Using this, we were able to write the lisp prototype on our laptops, and simply transmit the program via the audio jack to the Apple //e." blog.nullspace.io/apple-2-lisp

"In the Free Software movement, those who are using proprietary software are both the oppressed and the oppressor. They are the oppressed because when we use proprietary software we are limiting our own liberty. But we are also the oppressor because by using proprietary software, we are contributing to the normalization of this lack of freedom" media.libreplanet.org/u/librep

The FOSS world is amazing.

I'm apt updating Ubuntu on my laptop. Hundreds of new packages!

I've only contributed financially (or otherwise) to a handful of projects, but I keep getting all this other stuff for free. It's amazing.

Thank you, community.

Found a bug, sighed, went for a walk, came back, and now the bug is gone

Last week I paired on mapping the overlap between digital preservation and warez communities, which is extremely on-brand

Soft launch of my command line notes, with an introduction and posts on 'ls' and 'tmux':


Trying to put pressure on myself to keep adding to it. For a while I thought I'd launch with 10 commands, but it turns out I write a lot.

smh at people who think they can find a one click solution for digital preservation but not need any staffing support

@ashley the conditioning is f***ing real though: even in articles from big outlets like that one 👆 , they always get a quote from Doctorow or Stallman or Torvalds, fine, great, but they're never like "btw GIMP is right over here, thrilled to take *some* of the money or time you spend on Adobe CC, here are XYZ support companies that are happy to help integrate/teach/maintain it on your systems, and none of them will ever give a crap if you're using the version that works for you"

Museum workers need to real-talk more, I cannot believe the level of scamming going on out there

Sorry I am so devastated by global and national news every day and all I can do is channel these feelings into being pissed about people bashing on FOSS

a mixed of learned helplessness and the desire to put the blame on someone else?
