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.

Looking for events to look in to? Vancouver Linux User's Group is having an event with a presentation about . It starts in about 2 hours. (5pm Pacific time) t.co/W9MAmWnjvW

Have we not seen a press release from Microsoft exclaiming that Windows is more secure than Linux because 95% of Azure Linux instances are exploitable?

Last day of vacation, Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME. Nice views of the ocean and the shore, but it was very crowded on a holiday weekend. Overcast skies also made it a quick stop on the way home.

@ken_fallon @BlacKernel Ok, so, you need to initiate? That does complicate the matter. I thought that one of them was already using it.

I used to live on my own pleroma instance over at uribe.cafe...but now I live here. I hope to spend less time managing too many systems, and more time posting/creating content. I look forward to the future here!

re: LAPD/social media collection 

@thegibson @drwho

Q: Do you have a twitter account?

A: Well, uh, kind of, but like it's not really twitter, but it's kinda like twitter, but like, everyone can have their own server, if they want, or you can join one - there's lots of choices and you can find one that suits your interests (there are a lot of them), or even have multiple accounts for different things, and instead of "tweets" they're called "toots" and boosts instead of... well, a server is just a computer on the internet that sits and waits for requests from other computers, and that's the great thing about federated...

OK OK OK move it along nerd we don't have time for this...

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

Ah, back form the exotic faraway world of Maine.

Hello
I'm heading to the Portland Maine area next month. Anything geeky that I shouldn't miss while there? (Planning on the cog railway trip on Mt Washington as a day trip)

I keep seeing open source projects saying "join the conversation" on discord or "stay up to date" with a link to twitter or a facebook group.

Have we really failed on messaging so hard that no one understands the cognitive dissonance at play here?

Or is it really just that Matrix is that bad, and the fediverse is that obscure?

There are many Linux related podcasts out there but none of them is like The GNU World Order. In-depth, informative, interesting and knowledge expanding. Hosted by @klaatu. If you are not listening to this then you are missing something really good.
