A mid-30s he/him nerd. Husband, dad of 3, programmer, and guitarist. Concerned about the way humans are treated. In tune with that I'm very interested in #freesoftware and open/federated systems where humans, regardless of who or where they are, can participate. I also love #music of many types, (indie rock, funk, classic R&B, and modern bluegrass are some favorites) and random #geek hobbies like home automation, 3d printers, SBCs, even some #retrocomputing. Been on sdf almost 16y

Why do websites try to guilt-trip people into disabling ad blockers when people just ignore ads anyway? https://www.nngroup.com/articles/why-advertising-doesnt-work-on-the-web/
So I'm preparing to take a load of stuff to the electronics recycling center on Saturday morning before VCF, and now I'm trying to remember:
- Why did I need so many narrow SCSI cables?
- Why did I have two bins of IEC power cables?
- How many PCI video cards does one man need?
- Why did I have so many dead hard drives? They don't even spin up.
- What on earth was I going to do with this many mono RCA cables?
- Was it a good idea, at the time, to hoard printer cables?
