Pinned toot

I’ll leave this pinned in case you want to know more about me.

Left the USA in 2018 after accepting a position to support our clients in Europe. Living the dream in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

I like loud music, cold beer, spicy food, and have made great friends throughout the Schengen Region. This is where I plan to stay indefinitely.

Long time nerd from my Vic-20 to whatever distro suits my fancy today. I tinker, therefore I am. Shoot me a msg and let me know what’s going on.

Praise “BoB”.

Hoping COVID-19 wraps up soon because it'll be a bummer if Rush Limbaugh dies and I can't book a flight to go shit on his grave.

Can anyone help me with an issue where my Ubuntu desktop changes resolutions when I switch my KVM? It's annoying to either have to close all windows before switching or resize them when I switch back.

Naturally, searching for this info/solution on DDG has been fkn useless.

dist: Ubuntu 19.10
res: 3840x2160 @ 125% scale
kvm: 4 port 4K hdmi

Danke!

Only one of the following is true:

You know those stove top popcorn tins that you rattle over the stove? Before you cook it, cut one open and inhale the fumes. It causes temporary and harmless amnesia!

Also, spray a paper towel with Pam cooking spray. Wad the towel up into a paper towel tube. Light one end then blow it out. Inhale those fumes and you’ll have a seizure and shit your pants.

‪Opening a bag of Snyder’s Of Hannover Honey Mustard Pretzel Bits is as close to the crack addiction experience as a food can get. Same goes for the Buffalo Wing flavor. This (and the beer) is why I’m fat.‬

The largest culprits of privacy invading tech are currently feasting on all this new data flooding in from home offices and home schooling. While they hoist a humanitarian front, they are seeking ways to use this data to fatten their wallets.

Found a fully working copy of a bbs I ran back in the late 90s as part of the whole KTC series of projects. Mostly served up door games and had an irc client. Would love to put it back online for the fuck of it, but don’t want people telnetting into my home network. Win x86 dependent. Does Amazon offer VPS for this? Suppose I could look that up.

I see Boris Johnson tested positive for Covid-19. Couldn't happen to a more well respected leader.

I'm kidding. Time to go polish my justice boner. Suffer, motherfucker.

I linked this when it came out, but I'm reckoning a lot more of you are willing to hear it now:

I warned you that a lot of these would get a lot more difficult to accomplish once your area was using law enforcement to keep you indoors.

I'd appreciate honesty: do any of you regret not organizing faster, earlier?

Those of you still without state enforcement: read this answers and learn.

I'm eager to live in a world where when I cough I don't immediately panic that I'm gonna fkn die in a fortnight. Stay inside, motherfuckers.

Well, there goes any plans I had to visit the USA ever again. Shit's gonna end up like The Stand over there because Donald Dumbass needs to go golfing.

And the worst part is not the greed (though that's pretty bad), it's how the population is just going to roll over and accept it without a single stone thrown or torch lit. And the kleptocrats in charge know this.

Roma seems to be about the best iOS app for mastodon, in the free category, at least. Hesitant to throw down 4 euros on an app I can’t try first. Don’t want to be chasing down a refund if it blows. Mast app has the nicest layout, but seems unfinished and timeline updates didn’t work right. Roma seems to deliver what it promises. Any other suggestions?

So far, at least by Sunday standards, isolation has been aok. Have some dough rising to make bread, took a big blast of kratom and am listening to “330,003 Crossdressers From Beyond The Rig Veda” by Sun City Girls. The drone meditative part of the 2nd disc is beautiful.

It’s to the point now here if I break a sweat I’m thinking “Fuck, here it is. My time has come. Coronas.” and then nothing comes of it. If I knew I could only catch it once and be done, then I’d go for it. But it’s been mutating, so fuck it.... just going to stay inside and panic.

Kenny Rogers nailed the whole "know when to fold 'em" ideology!

If GameStop is so essential, why don’t they sell beer? Please, you’re gonna have to try harder. The law states that only places that are essential for human life, such as: apotheke, groceries, drug stores, liquor stores, bakeries and hospitals should remain open at this time.
