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.

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. So I’m raising money to go see her. We need about $1500 to comfortably make the trip. Boosts and donations are all equally appreciated! (Going to be posting this for a while)
I should probably explain that hashtag, #foak. Back in the Usenet days (I know, I’m old), we used “FOAK” in subject lines to designate a fact-based question we were looking for an answer to. 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.

Birds of Prey trailer looks pretty cool...
DC gonna hurt me again...

🚨🚨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. 😊
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!
