Pinned toot


I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!

On September 9, 1947, engineers working on the Mark II computer at Harvard University found a moth stuck in one of the components. They taped the insect in their logbook and computer scientist Grace Hopper reported the "First actual case of bug being found,". The engineers who found the moth were the first to literally "debug" a machine.
The words "bug" and "debug" soon became a standard part of the language of computer programmers.

It is time to get the main (and Only truth be told) moderator of a living wage. please.


“Demanding privacy from surveillance capitalists,” says Zuboff, “or lobbying for an end to commercial surveillance on the internet is like asking old Henry Ford to make each Model T by hand. It’s like asking a giraffe to shorten its neck, or a cow to give up chewing. These demands are existential threats that violate the basic mechanisms of the entity’s survival.”

Incidentally, I also ran 6.57 km in 46 minutes on the treadmill this morning.
