PSA about my posts/boosts 

If there's something I say or boost that may have bothered you, please be sure to let me know politely. I usually CW particular posts about politics, my beliefs, and my rants, but I may sometimes boost something that I'm excited about which might not have a CW. We all make mistakes, we are all human.

I'd rather you bring it to my attention in a civil manner than passive-aggressive, knee-jerk, cancel-culture blocking outright, but that's your choice and I respect it. ๐Ÿ‘

I guess it bears repeating. Bluntly this time.

If you're going to send a follow request, please do something with your Mastodon/Pleroma/Whatever profile. No activity on your instance account looks fishy. ๐ŸŸ I'm just going to cancel it outright if that's the case.

I know I'm not the only one on the Fediverse that feels this way.

** new main who dis? **

Well, I guess now that I'm on my new main instance, it's time for a new .

I'm a middle-aged, graybeard geek who loves all things tech and all things music, especially when they come together and make babies. Not only do I wonder about the bleeding edge of those two, but I get nostalgic about their days of old.

As individuals, we have to decouple ourselves from the centralized nature of social media and begin to move back to a decentralized model, similar to what the internet looked like at its inception.

Finally back in Miami. Taking my two youngest sons to their mom's house to drop off some items and have my middle son pick up his car, and then off we go to the grandparents' house to pock up my eldest. Getting some needed grocery items before ultimately heading home.

As much as I wanted to stay, it's good to be back home. Had a great time and can't wait for us to do it all again next year. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


Already up and having after packing everything for the trip home. Loading up the car once I finish this cup and then filling my travel mug with the rest for the drive back to Miami.

Stopping for some breakfast somewhere after we check out because I'm going to need the sustenance. โ˜•๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿš—

DHL sent ALL PinePhones to New Zealand instead of their actual destinations. How this happened is beyond us. This is a massive blunder on their part, but ultimately we're the one that gets to apologize to you - very sorry about this. It will take a week to sort this situation out.

Just some screenshots of Shattered-pixel-Dungeon a fun little Roguelike RPG running on the #Pinephone

I showed this one before but I realized there is a .jar version in the LinMobGames repo now so you can use it on more then just Mobian. I just love this game it's not specially complicated but a ton of fun and I even played it before I had a Pinephone! :D

Big thanks to @ShatteredPixel (Twitter) for the amazing work!

Already heading back to land after a great day of fishing out on the ocean. Boys had a great time, especially my youngest who caught his first batch of fish. I only watched, but had fun nonetheless. ๐ŸŽฃ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Pics below are from the first hour out at sea.

Niche search engine ideas 

A search engine that indexes ...

- sites that work without JavaScript.
- sites that have no ads and no tracking.
- sites that are self-hosted and load no content from the "cloud".
- sites that work with text-based browsers.

I may have inadvertently described Veronica. :flan_facepalm:โ€‹

I'm in an anti-establishment anti-modern-web mood. :flan_molotov:โ€‹

If you are in need of a VPS / VM - this level of fanatism is what sets @OpenBSDAms apart. Furthermore, you'll get a dedicated IPv4 and IPv6 address, on an OpenBSD host (eat that, KVM IaaS providers) รกnd you'll be sponsoring the OpenBSD Foundation at the same time. For five euro a month.

Almost as if the VM itself is a nice extra :flan_laugh:
