I have a rule; if a machine resists getting fixed for longer than the duration of The Matrix, it's broken. Leave it alone for a bit.

Got a Philips CD-i a week ago with a few educational titles. Replaced the drive belt and the thing loads right up, plays burned games perfectly! Let me know if you happen to have a spare video expansion card laying around so I can watch CD-i digital video discs.

@tootbrute I think I’m going to give YunoHost a shot. Any advice? Does it have any native support for BTRFS or anything else to counter bitrot?

SDF.ORG is one of the best spots in Cyber Land. While I maybe self-hosting a social instance or two for family and friends. I can assure you I spend more time on SDF. :-)

If you are familiar with ECHO and PIPELINE from back in the day SDF is that X's 1000. And if you want to compare to panix...SDF whips their ass. :-)

While I agree with decentralization and privacy, you cannot do it at the expense of community. So check them out and check out ANONRADIO.NET powered by SDF.ORG.

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

Instagram ranked worst for young people’s mental health [0].

I am very aware of the toxic side of IG and look forward to establishing Pixelfed Labs [1]. The goal is to get the community involved in solving these tough issues through discussions, proposals and implementations.

We can build better alternatives if we work together!

Google is bringing AMP to Gmail not for your convenience or to increase speed, but to change your mailbox into a platform for marketers so that the ads jump into your face. Better switch to an email service that respects your right to privacy. 😉

I propose to launch a campaign called #ShareATool.

Everyone can share their favorite #opensource tool(-s) that use on a daily basis as well as other interesting tools for your opinion.

No software categories. The main requirement is that the project must be open source.

And I think I'm gonna start.

2019 is the year of FreedomBox Pioneer edition home servers, Purism Librem 5 smartphones and the growing Fediverse.

This year marks a point in history where people have started to rebel against the surveillance capitalist platforms threatening our democracy and take back control over their digital lives with freedom-respecting products and services.

A mid-30s he/him nerd. Husband, dad of 3, programmer, and guitarist. Concerned about the way humans are treated. In tune with that I'm very interested in and open/federated systems where humans, regardless of who or where they are, can participate. I also love of many types, (indie rock, funk, classic R&B, and modern bluegrass are some favorites) and random hobbies like home automation, 3d printers, SBCs, even some . Been on sdf almost 16y
