Pinned toot


I'm a Linux Sysadmin/software engineer from Texas, USA. I've contributed to a couple books on database servers and have a deep interest in the Linux kernel.

I've worked with Linux since about 1999, and professionally since 2007. I've been away from it all for a decent chunk of time due to some health issues, but I'm back up and ready to begin again - hoping I can find the right situation to do so

I'm also a 3rd Order Franciscan religious, so I live in two different worlds

I’ve been battling systemic lupus erythematosus, or more commonly just “Lupus” for a few years now. Usually isn’t much of an issue, but confirmed today that I’m in the start of a flare. Feeling like poo, and perfect timing. Ugh. Just hope it’s a short one.

Dear FOSS Community,

We need to make people aware of the Googles, Facebooks and Microsoft of this world. Tell them about FOSS software, get them to use the apps first then we switch them to Linux.
The time is now.

Note to myself: Stay off the federation feed first thing in the morning 😳😳

After the great suggestions I received, I’ve decided to go with for my desktop. The laptop in question is sticking with for now at least. I wanted to hold on to the familiar, just in case...and because I’m a man of habit and didn’t want that much change all at once 😁

the reason you need to CW your nudes and porn isn't because someone might be at work. it's because someone might not want to see nudes or porn.

Trying to choose a distro for my laptop - which is an Acer so somewhat flaky. I’m a long time Fedora user, but thinking it’s time to shop around. Suggestions?

Yay! My kernel with symlink protection patches, that I did absolutely zero testing on, didn't cause the server to burst into flames! Then again, that might be kinda cool to do....once.
