Hello!

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!

wow! SDF is officially bigger than SDF Public Access UNIX System! We never got this far with or even

Initiative Q is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system instead of credit cards that were designed in the 1950s.

It is free and they only ask for your name and an email address.

If you missed getting bitcoin seven years ago, you wouldn't want to miss this.

Here is my invite link: initiativeq.com/invite/B-p_TeR

This link will stop working once I’m out of invites.

Just discovered that Pycharm runs on OpenBSD ✌️

Just discovered that there is a folder which contains small tips on how to run ported software on OpenBSD:

/usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes/

In my case, I could have found tips on how to enable acceleration on Firefox, and how to run syncthing, which took me a long time!

Check it out when some package is not behaving as expected.

Due to many requests SDF has moved the etherpad instance to cryptpad - please share

Here's my setup. Work for today: finish the implementation tutorial

Worldwide trivia: In Catalonia, the Spanish region, all hallow’s eve celebrates the “castanyada” (lit. chestnut party). A familiar gathering to eat autumn food, especially roasted chestnuts, sweet potatoes and a dessert named “panellet” made of almonds and sugar. We do not dress up, but remember our dead. We also drink “moscatell”, a sweet wine

Here’s a picture of panellets for you. Happy castanyada, Mastodon!

Anybody want to share some firsthand experience, or well-considered opinions of, ProtonMail?

An interesting interview with RMS: newleftreview.org/II/113/richa

I think this is the first time I've heard him tell the story about the Lisp machine wars, without mentioning the printer story.

I need you all to flood this thread with cute cat videos and pics. Thanks.

#Google cancels its planned "campus" in #Kreuzberg, #Berlin, under pressure by the neighborhood!!! ✊

A major symbolic victory, calling for the next steps of combating all this empire stands for, and tech-gentrification/speculation!🎆

Congrats to all who participated, with their presence, energy, courage and intelligence! 💓

Decentralized, direct local+global action (beyond "scenes" and compartmentalized fights) HAS an impact! 📢

Now: THE WORLD!!! 🌎
