Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.


I'm going even further down the dehydrated food rabbithole. Please check on me periodically to make sure that at the bottom of the rabbithole isn't a cache of guns and beans, so many beans, beans to survive the apocolypse

9/11, something to never forget 

@FiftyOneFifty Well, friend, I've heard you've left this mortal coil. I'm in shock, but I guess you're at peace. The irony of your multiplying hearses is not lost upon me, and your twisted sense of humour is appreciated still.

You'll be missed.


And the best teachers are those with the confidence to *not* be the subject authority... they're the ones with the chutzpah to learn alongside their learners, and show them that learning in a digital age is its own set of skills...

Just wanted to shout out about my OnePlus 3t. It's a solid phone that is dead simple to work on. Two screws and you have access to all of the internals, almost all of which are easily replaced. Where in the past I've had to replace phones every two years, this thing should last a good while longer.

If #MenAreTrash, its partly because they were raised that way.

If you want better men, raise better boys.

Men, teach your children to be better men than you were taught to be.

Women, teach your sons to be better men than the ones you settled for.

'Along with its positive aspects, technological advance has a distinctly negative, socially regressive side. If it is true that technological progress enlarges the historical potentiality for freedom, it is also true that the bourgeois control of technology reinforces the established organization of society and everyday life." - Murray Bookchin

Well that about sums up the current situation quite nicely.

Linux For Everyone EP6

Latest in my podcast list: Linux For Everyone [EP6] is out for some days now and today I had the time to listen to it ♥️


#foss #linux #podcast

So I bought a Roccat gaming mouse a little over 6 months ago. I bought it specifically because they mention Linux support (which it does have). The mouse was great while it worked. It's died now. Just a heads up. Wish more mainstream hardware companies had Linux support, so I could buy something reliable .

Anybody know where to find the homebrew scene for GameCube and/or Wii games? For example, if I wanted to play indie content on the Dolphin emulator?

So I have to use a MacBook Pro for work. Why in the nine hells does OSX not have an option to automatically disable the touchpad while typing. I spend more time correcting what I type because my cursor jumps around than I do doing actual work. Apple's "it just does it behind the scenes auto-magically is bullshit, because it doesn't.

Hey everyone, I've started an account for my podcast and related #FOSS and #Linux ramblings.

Find it here: @Linux4Everyone

A podcast by three Linux users (@thaj, @x1101 , and @pokey) that met through the Hacker Public Radio podcast community decided that the whole world needed to hear the contents of our brains. So we hang out, record and release it as a podcast under a Free Culture license. It is exactly what it says on the tin "Your UNLIMITED source of medium quality randomness". Check us out at urandom-podcast.info

OK random question that maybe someone on the fediverse can answer. Does anyone know a good way to "legend" keycaps in a DIY way? There is almost nothing out there on the internet other than "buy an injection mold system and do double shot yourself". There has to be something else. :openhardware:
