Pinned toot

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.

@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. :-)

Good messenger - check.
Questionable cryptocurrency integration - check.
So, when is Zoom buying Signal?

@djsundog All this Boston is bringing back memories. I have Third Stage either on vinyl, or one of the first few CDs I ever bought.

This is just a feeler for now, but would people be interested in helping organize a Free Culture conference online?

If so, could you drop me a line?

No blizzard, but there was some snow while I was out running errands this morning.

I have the motorcycle out of storage, and the summer tires on the car. I apologize for the inevitable upcoming blizzard.

FSF, RMS 

I've had some thoughts on the current situation. Too much for the character limit here, though.

@djsundog This set of music you're playing. Is it from a collection? It seems like such a familiar set, but I can't place it.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

First #bike ride of the season. Thankfully, there wasn't a whole lot of snow, but there was a little to remind me that winter is still not over. #mastobikes #rideon #morristown #newjersey

@mwlucas no glasses, but from the angle of the glasses pic, because I'm saucy and I vote outside the box.
