Graduated with a associates of science in computer #programming
Manyverse is an Android app for the Scuttlebutt social network.
Scuttlebutt is very unusual: it has no servers. All the data people share is stored on their own devices, and on the devices of people they share it with.
It's also unusual because it can work off-the-grid, via bluetooth or local wifi.
Manyverse is available from @fdroidorg and Google Play, and there's an iOS version on the way:

Also just wanted to shill a bit for one of my favorite podcasts, the SwitchCast. Great hosts KC and JV make learning about new games and current ones for the Switch a fun experience! Highly recommended listen and their community is amazing!
Looks good. Never played the original, but have played the #Amiga's version of #Turrican. I was always more into Japanese shoot 'em ups from companies like #CAVE or the #Touhou Project series, but I'm willing to give this one a try! I've also played Mega Turrican on the #Genesis and liked it, even tho people say it's not that good, I think...
So yeah, also been trying out #openbsd 6.5 on my desktop. It runs just fine. I wrote it a review of it in gopherspace. But it basically boils down to that it's a great OS and I can't wait to see future iterations. It fulfills everything I need and want in an OS without all the cruft and complexity of other systems.

Purism will allow bigoted content on their servers
@pbandkate Makes sense, when you think about it. Nazis want/need to end free speech. Their strategy seems to be convincing the left that "free speech is for Nazis."
A doctor at my annual appointment: "Ever since you told me about medical software safety last year, I see articles about how bad things are on a regular basis! I don't know how I managed to be oblivious to this before talking to you." #AlwaysAGoodTimeToTalkAboutSoftwareFreedom

To everyone looking at Microsoft releasing "open source", allow me to remind you of FUD cousin: EEE.
Don't be fooled by MS. It is not your "friend", nor a friend of open source. It is a giant faceless corporation only interested in PROFITS, not in privacy, software freedom or consumer choice.
And it has DECADES of experience peddling FUD and EEE. Its history is a long bloody trail of aggressive attacks against competitors.
Linux is MS competition TODAY. That is all.

I don't know what to say here yet except: I love video gaming, computers, free software/open culture, movies and anime. Follow if you like the above!
