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.

I was going to log on to delete my account. Looks like they saved me the trouble.
Thanks Freenode for making leaving easier.

Cyber-Murphy's Laws of Robotics, Investment, And Gambling

1. Humans should not build machines whose behaviour they cannot predict, even though it is trivial to do so.

2. If humans ever do 1, as a game or joke, they should certainly never give those machines control of their lives.

3. If humans ever do 1 and 2, they should then not be at all surprised when those machines do things to their lives that they didn't predict, that aren't good, and that they can't stop.

A few pictures from a bike riding break on family vacation in Lubec Maine in 2015. I got the opportunity to ride my #bike from the US into New Brunswick, Canada for some sightseeing. It was overcast and foggy though, so it was more of a riding experience around the island than anything. #mastobikes

World Bicycle Day is celebrated on June 3rd every year. The day is celebrated to spread awareness about the health and environmental benefits of cycling.

Why this day is celebrated :-

* Increased bicycle use means lower greenhouse gas emissions: Cycling contributes to mitigation of carbon dioxide emissions as it possesses an intrinsic zero-emissions value. Cycling reduces air pollutants and reduces noise pollution and traffic congestion.

* Cycling can lead to a healthier life both in fitness and reduced stress.

* Cycling saves money: Bikes are less expensive to buy, are free to ride, and are less expensive to maintain than cars.

* Environmental awareness: To raise awareness about the local environment and sustainable consumption and production.

#BicycleDay #BicycleDay2021 #WorldBicycleDay

🌱🚲 I urge those who love to and can to #GoGreen

Happy World Bicycle Day!

You sometimes hear people say Linux (and by extension Open Source) "won" because of how ubiquitous it is in Android phones and IoT devices.

Yet today's release of Google's new OS Fuchsia on Nest devices points to a future where Linux is left behind. This is a future where the dominant OSes on devices are Fuchsia, iOS, and Windows.

My personal #mastodon experience still suffers from crossposts from #twitter, with user names that don't make sense in the #fediverse.

I can unfollow crossposter's accounts, but I don't want to unfollow everyone who boosts a twitter crosspost.

Please, #fediverse, let's boost the fediverse, not twitter. If we want to share a good tweet, let's treat it like any other URL from the web.

@klaatu Thank you for #404
Truly the appropriate way to commemorate that episode.

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)
