Updated and expanded #introductions for all y'all new folk.
I'm a #bass player with way too much interest in avant-garde #noise experimentation, #jazz, and #punk rock. I have a #dayjob in #tech that I talk about too much. My favorite game console is a table and chairs where I play #RPGs, #wargames, and #cardgames. And somehow I manage to spend time with my wife amid all of that. I prefer free software whenever possible and use #debian on my personal systems though I enjoy #netbsd at sdf.org.
Theres a new #LoPan album. Rejoice you naughty fuckers.
@MG How do you like that Pinebook?
My self imposed exile from the web is already yielding good results. I've had time to try out #FiveCore by Nordic Weasel Games which I really enjoyed. And I've had a chance to reorganize my office/studio.
Now to actually practice instead talk about myself on Mastodon.
I'd tease #firefox about all this but certs going bad is a thing that happens to just about everyone. I spent a Friday night handling the same situation at work a couple of months ago (always on a Friday).
@endomain said "It's depressingly professional." and I have to agree. It seems like this is a problem that should have been solved by now, yet here we are...
Oh wow. bboard really did not like me pretending I was using ed to make a post. #sdf
kio-gopher doesn't play well with Web Engine, but switching konqueror to KHTML allows gopher pages to load correctly. For some reason konq wants to open gopher linked text files in a text editor instead of just loading them in the browser to be read. That's a minor annoyance, but still irritating. Especially since viewing gopher sites in konq is a great experience otherwise. #kde #gopher #konqueror
Less than five days until I take some time off from the web.
#KDE 's kontact application has been a big help here (though knode is no longer a part of the suite). I have most of what I want to do with the internet in one place, just leaving irc/chat.
I'm still weighing kopete, pidgen, and telepathy for xmpp chat.
The gopher kio seems to have some issues though. I'm not certain if I'm doing something wrong or if there is a bug, but I can't get gopher:// sites to load in konqueror yet.
Pager reported a site outage at 3:00 am. Despite configuring it to call me, text me, send an email, and ring through on the pager app on my phone I slept through the whole thing.
I felt terrible when I woke up to see that, but then I looked at the case notes and the person it escalated to slept through his alerts too. Heh.
Oh, and it was a false negative. The site was up the whole time.
