Happy Birthday
Here's a picture that I found today. Probably circa 1994 or 5. The Large PC case to the right is actually a case for 3-6 SCSI hard drives, and a tape drive. Feel free to AMA about the old gear.

Everything is so DRM'd to hell that I still have a wall of CDs. No DRM, no telemetry, just music. Perhaps there's something to be learned from the beautiful simplicity of a CD.

GitHub/Microsoft leading off the conference. Mixed feelings.

@killyourfm I have a question about your last L4E podcast. You expressed dismay about the Linux community, but seemed mostly focused on the YouTube comments. Is this exclusively the venue that you are judging the wider Linux community by? If you answered this in the podcast, I apologize, I must have missed it. But I hope that you don't judge all of us by comments on YouTube, or Reddit, or even here. There's more to it than that.

Not sure of the panorama works here, if not I'll delete.

I wonder why they're concerned about tech companies but not internet service providers and the 5 television network monopolies. Tech companies must not be paying enough in bribes.

@cassolotl A while ago, you made a nice, succinct flowchart of Mastodon timeline behavior. May I use it in a Fediverse presentation? (For a LUG, at least at first.) What license, if I may redistribute?

@sir this.

Also, this is a great talk with practical examples of why one should not talk to the police: youtube.com/watch?v=d-7o9xYp7e

talk like a pirate day 

the public domain has been stolen from us by paid-for legislation and piracy is a form of civil disobedience

Some #bike riding today, at Six mile run in Blackwells Mills, #NJ. Was a nice relaxing ride until my seat completely broke. Made the 6 or so miles riding to a friend's house standing up all the way a tough one. #mastobikes

Only a problem on Ubuntu and Pop_OS! Works OK in Fedora. Something to look at, anyway.

Strange, I got a new webcam, that seems to work (other then wavy lines under LED lights, but that's another issue)
But if I try to connect it to a KVM VM, it seems to lock up libvirtd. Any ideas?

@Ahuka I picked up one of those Akaso cameras. The SD card fits very tight and doesn't come out of the slot. Any tricks?
