The internet is utterly boring today. It used to be so interesting. What happened?

I’d just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as freenode, is in fact, Lee/freenode, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, leenode. leenode is not an IRC network, but rather a hollow shell of an IRC network being destroyed by Andrew Lee. Many IRC users connect to a ruined version of the freenode network every day, without realizing it.

@goossbears Honestly, I haven't tried, but it wouldn't be worth it on my 1st-gen Model B. Maybe once I get a Pi 4 (or a Pi 400). @darkstar

#freenode staff resigning:

"We are founding a new network with the same goals and ambitions to support #foss and likeminded #communities: libera.chat."

I'm afraid its bad, as some will stay, others leave. I'm using quite a bit of matrix, but - though decentralized - for many it will not be the right alternative.

libera.chat/ has taken off. Since I wrote this toot, an additional 100 people joined. Yes. It was ~ 600, and now it's 711.

Wondering whether that "narcissistic Trumpian wannabe Korean royalty bitcoins millionaire" Andrew Lee :rotten:🖤
of the disintegrating
is at all related to one of the greatest martial arts heroes of all time, Bruce Lee 💜 ??

Companies are having trouble finding employees?

I'm sure they've tried EVERYTHING to lure in prospective candidates... except paying more, providing more benefits, and generally improving working conditions!

It's heeeeere! Manjaro is a new experience for me, and I haven't used KDE in a long time, so it'll be interesting. Going to give it a proper try-out before deciding if I'll nuke it for Debian or switch to Xfce/Openbox as per my usual habit

Got an ugly little gouge on the display hinge, which is sad, but not worth a return

@buttstuf Dude, that set was great. You are your own worst critic, you know that? 😅 @goossbears

How do Japanese-speaking🇯🇵 fans of 19th century German philosophy greet one another every Seattle afternoon?

Co-Nietzsche WA of course!😉

@ParadeGrotesque Yeah. I'm a fan of "screw releases every * months", but instead "it will be released when it is ready". Win win for slack.

@capngloval

Oh, come on! 14.2 was released in 2016, so that's 5 years ago... 😉

Slackware never went away. It just got better with time!
