Hey, sys admins, personal ops folks, hobbyists that do operations or dabble - we should all talk under the #libreops hashtag when we're live tooting an operations event, like DB updates, rolling out new versions of public services, etc.

we have a lot of adjacent folks here with varying levels of experience doing operations and i bet a few more who are voyeristically watching.

This'll help make it discoverable and enable us to engage one another with help when needed.

While we're all focused on the Corona crisis the US government is quietly pushing an internet #surveillance bill that is aimed at abolishing message encryption:

We should probably pay attention to this and spread awareness even if we are not American: eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/earn

@smj it looks like the federation limiting effects are caused by "Restricted Mode". I'm assuming that was added to limit signups to actual SDF users, but it also keeps the community locked in from sharing and being shared with other pixelfed servers.

I'm not sure if there's a good way to keep signups locked down while allowing federation.

Now that I'm all settled, I'll introduce myself.

My name is Sarah, I'm 26 y/o. I graduated in Library Science and now I'm a Knowledge Management and Organization master's student.

I learned english from TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy (and other shondaland productions), and from music. I never directly studied grammar rules, so I can be at fault with that.

I'm never confident with what I'm saying, that's why I'm trying to practice here. Hope you can help and correct me if that's the case.

Not sure where you were tonight.
There were 26 ppl booked into com on anonradio.
We listened to a slow tty chattering away while we chatted and behaved like the lunatics we are normally ;-)
I bailed at the 38 minute mark.
We missed you bud.

Just lost my cable internet. Using cell data. This system keeps me powered when there is no power.
