Hi I'm Dave,

I have been floating around mastodon for a year. I'm a bit of a tinkerer so I have tried to start my own instance but it wasnt my thing.

I have a degree in Archaeology and ancient Semitic languages. I worked with at risk kids and teens for the past 10 years. Absolutely loved it but got burned out emotionally. Currently a stay at home dad.

Working on my Certified Openstack Admin and Hyperledger Admin certs. Passionate about opensource implementations in non profits

People rarely look closely at command line windows. Streaming Mastodon in the middle of a meeting without anybody thinking twice about it.

I don't think it's how any of us hoped it would work out, but there's an argument to be made that this is true.

Found this through a youtuber that I follow @switchedtolinux. Thought i'd check it out. I like the premise of Mastodon so far...

I am a Musician, Computer Geek, Woodworker and General Class Ham, among other things, i'm into a bit of Anime as well. Living in Maryland with my Wife and Daughter.

Hope to find like minded individuals, learn something new and maybe make a friend or two in the process.

We'll see what shakes out.

Found joined the fediverse and fosstodon after discovering the link to it from LibreOffice's software update page.

I am a photographer that lives in Central Texas with my wonderful wife, 4 children, 8 grandchildren, 2 nephews, 1 niece and 1 recently born great-niece.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone here, especially those in photography, but am certainly willing to discuss matters outside that realm.

I'm adding a wedding reception photo from last year. Enjoy!

Finally joined the fediverse and fosstodon seemed like a solid place to jump in.

I am a Fedora Linux user (full-time since v25) and have been using Linux and FOSS in some capacity for the past ten years. My roots are in Debian.

Recently I've been taking the time to really learn Vim and alongside that, started writing in Markdown. I'm also learning to use Ansible and reading through The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim, et al.

Looking forward to being a part of this community!

Hello, friends!

I've been maintaining my project's Mastodon here on FOSStodon for a while (@azuracast), but I wanted to sign up for an account of my own so that I can answer questions directly, speak from my perspective rather than the project's, and make new friends in the greater software community. <3

I've been lurking here for a while now thought I might officially introduce myself. I am a software developer, cartographer, FOSS enthusiast, and bird watcher. I love to develop in and on with an

So, semantics question.

Is using a pipe technically a "new" line of code, or can you pipe over and over again in a single line and it's technically still a single line of code?

friday: I'd like to thank @inkscape for existing, because I got an A in arts class with designs I made using it (partially recycled as my current avatar and banner).

I know a lot of people probably will have heard about it already, but I really wanted to say thanks :)
