I'm scheduled to go to an appointment tomorrow, but given that I have to use ride sharing to do that, I might just try to see if they can refill me from home.

People are going crazy, and instead of handling this in a good social manner by self-isolating and only getting what they need, well, you guys know what's going on... I just hope this all ends sooner than later and that there's not many deaths.

In the board game Pandemic, people work together to solve the problem.

In a capitalist reality, people fight over rolls of toilet paper.

Everybody, keep talking.

It’s very dangerous right now, not only because of the bio threats.

Oppressors win by making those of noble intent think they are alone, that they are powerless.

We have seen, here in the fediverse, that we are NOT alone.

Remember this: Keep talking.

Good morning and wonderful Wednesday Mastodon!

May you do good work today, as the gentleman in this picture did.

Currently using 19.10 and 6.6, as well as the newest release on a pi 4. My thoughts on these systems follows:

xubuntu is a good release, it’s very stable on my hp laptop. I decided to use ZFS on root, and it runs surprisingly well with my low ram amount. Highly recommended!

OpenBSD is amazing, it boots up quick and everything is easy to configure. I haven’t had any issues or performance problems. Also recommended!

Google/Microsoft/Apple's push to make all software "cloud"-based seems really anti-user to me. Setting aside any privacy concerns, it makes software inconveniently slow and gives me more passwords to remember!

I really notice this when comparing Apple's AppStore (a "hybrid" web/native app) to elementary's AppCenter (an offline AppStream-compliant database).

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

What do y'all think of the franchise? I think the PC game simply titled 'Battletech' looks cool, I want it and would love to play it.

To go with the c64 I'm giving my uncle, I am including my old SD2IEC, which I will replace with a pi1541.

In addition to that, though, u want to include a couple of games on cartridge.

What are your favorite NTSC C64 games, in general, and on cartridges specifically?

Today I'm: Learning more and the PF , and and gonna study some more stuff!

can we all, as a culture, please forget that skype exists

@brennen OSes should be rated against absolute bottom-shelf, decade-old tech, and it's fucking absurd to me that they're just these atrocious resource-hogs and there's nothing we can seriously do about it

So I bought a baofeng cuz I heard that ham radios are important in emergencies. I guess I might as well study to be a ham now too?

Sidebar about what I want:

I want a modern BBS client that
- is tor aware,
- automatically starts z-modem transfers,
- has an option to automatically fetch and toss posts like as if by NNTP (maybe over nntp?)
- will render images and videos in line
- and will work on desktop and mobile.

Better terminal software will be needed for BBS adoption, IMO.

Stallman, FSF, MIT, Epstein, Minsky 

#Stallman and to some extent the structural constitution of the #GNU project and the #FSF that solely revolves around #rms' vision of the world and society—with absolutely no room for other opinions—has always been problematic. It's indeed not new at all. It has overshadowed and prevented the development of free software to be more culturally diverse and a more politicised effort. Similarly, his dogmatic attitude has created throughout the years a situation where free software communities are having a hard time to be self critical and are effectively unable to evaluate the nature of their discourse. Ultimately, there has been increasing cognitive dissonance between the values they believe sharing and their actions, with sometimes quite aggressive response to even the slightest form of criticism and critique of anything related to software/user freedom. At best, criticism is deflected by tweaking the terminology and the language used, and if needed new definitions of words are created to defuse problematic statements. Hopefully these kind of exposures and open discussions will help move forward work on software and cultural freedom, in general, and not lead to complete implosion.

Today, since I'm going to an #IWW meeting, I'm wearing my favorite shirt I've ever designed! I made it for Wobblies who were involved at Occupy.

It's a cutesy sabo-tabby (the IWW cat), next to an acrostic of #ACAB, which spells out "All Cats Are Beautiful."

Those in the know might know that's not what ACAB always means - sometimes it means All Cops Are Bad.

A cool nuance toward this other spelling-out is that a cat is a worker who's damn good at their work and likes it. So yea, ACAB!
