Recently my friend and cofounder of #Fosstodon posted a blog post about how he's no longer using #Linux on the desktop. The reaction from the community was a good one, so I figured that I could safely announce something myself that wouldn't illicit too much hate.
So, here goes....
I cut off a large part of my beard....
Please don't hate me.
@mike some of us didn't respond to Kev because we couldn't think of anything positive to say. :) Nice trim, though.
@mike cutting your beard to support a buddy who stopped using Linux in favor of Windows is so lovely 🤣
@mike well, on one hand, it looks better; it's cleaner, yet still magnificent.
On the other hand, this still looks nothing like your profile pic
@NickKaramoff Heh, thank you!
The profile picture isn't quite a precise representation, but @kev made it for me years ago based on a picture of me from the time. Maybe one of these days I'll see if I can con him into updating it for me, but until then I'm pretty happy with the younger version of me.
@mike Sweet Lincoln’s mullet! What did you do!? This is offensive on so many levels! It's...beardist...or something. 😋
Nah, man. It looks good. Super clean. That being said, I expect all your future blog posts to include a velvet smoking jacket or blazer and three fingers of fine bourbon.
@cooper Always been more of a Gin guy myself. And while I don't always drink beer. But when I do, I definitely prefer something other than Dos Equis. I'll see what I can do about the smoking jacket though. Do you have to smoke to wear a smoking jacket? If so I'm out.
@mike Does having a lesser Unix beard now mean that you have to look up the manpage for iptables again?
@mike I cut off my goatee when the Habs looked like they were going to be swept by the Laffs. Now, I'm bringing it back. Give off to much of a Chad Lowe Supergirl vibe I feel like.
