I think Wine (and emulators in general) are going to be key for keeping control of our computers from being wrestled away from us. Personal Computing (not just PCs but computing in general) is being subsumed by cloud providers and subscription models and I for one am not about to give up the idea of Personal Computing.

If there's anything that I've learned from 30+ years in computing is that corporate interests are never in the users long-term interests. Ever.

Elizabeth Warren was asked how she would respond to a person who says that marriage is "between one man and one woman"...

"I'm going to assume it's a guy who said that, and I will say, then just marry one woman… Assuming you can find one" Warren said.

I’ve been out of work since March and my youngest sister is having her wedding at the end of October. It’s in Texas and traveling there from Oregon is a big feat especially with my disabled partner.

The idea was that Usenet contained so many knowledgeable people that we were collectively the Font Of All Knowledge.

I’d love it if that caught on as a hashtag here; I’d really enjoy following the tag and seeing if I could answer any of the questions.

🚨🚨The Pro-Vax pin is being rereleased y'all! 🚨🚨

See below for a picture of the original version; the rerelease appears to have silver accents rather than gold, but looks otherwise identical.

Additionally, sales of this version will benefit the Immunization Action Coalition, a vaccine education non-profit. 😊
