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. πŸ‘

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. 🐟 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.

Lunch 

Finally stopping and having some lunch. Hoping to finish wiring this laptop cart before the end of the day. Oatmeal with honey, peanut butter, and milk is on the menu today.

Sadly, that idiotic 'pump dot io' photo will always be associated with the death of identi.ca for me :-(

I can't believe I once built a self-hosted Laconica instance from source.

@alcinnz I know Plan 9 has gained some recent fans. Personally, I was fascinated by it about 20 years ago. At the time, the web pages you found for it were a bit different.

One of the things that struck me then, and I remember still, is how the 9P protocol - the one that exposes everything as a file, far more than UNIX ever did - was *also* intended for what we now consider cloud syncing, except quite different.

I hope you don't mind me going off a little on that tangent.

What a day! Just now brewing some afternoon #coffee before calling it a day. Then, off to sweat it at the gym. :flan_coffee: :flan_hulk: (I love these flans! :flan_XD: )

My first attempt to photograph the Andromeda Galaxy

There's a few issues with the image, but hey, I'm learning :)

Breaking for lunch. It's been non-stop today. πŸ₯΅

Hello, world! Time for an #introduction!

I'm Claudio, and I've been on the fediverse for a few years now. Started on mastodon.xyz and moved over to the SDF instance, and now I've settled in here on bsd.betwork and I'm glad to be here.

I'm just a middle-aged graybeard nearing half a century of life on this spinning orb we call home who's a lover of tech and music, both old and new, as well as a proud dad of 3 boys. Big fan of #BSD (#OpenBSD being my fave 🐑) though I still use Linux and maybe one day I'll give illumos a go. πŸ˜… I don't do Windows or macOS, but will if I must. Use what works for you, I say. πŸ‘πŸ»

Hope to reconnect with old friends here and new ones too. 😊
