rant about formal education advice
Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.
I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.
Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.
I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.
Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️
It is proven! I am tramtrist on Keybase: https://keybase.io/tramtrist/sigchain#3121d28b9ef645fb2e7ae20a038d57d84d0835d0f0953696c384060f1b6da8680f
After spending months trying to figure out why the i915 module wouldnt load on boot without mkinitrd being run and then only requiring me call it distinctly.. i finally figured out how make localyesconfig works by running "grep -R --include=Makefile '\bMODULENAME\.o\b" Alls well now. i915 compiled completely in the kernel without having to load the module or use some kernel options. ALL 4 PENGUINS SHOW UP FOR THE ENTIRE HIGH RES BOOT SEQUENCE!! #linux #kernel #foss #nerds
I should probably introduce myself. I've been using GNU/Linux for over 20 years now, since way back in the Slackware days. I've been a regular attendee of some of the US Linux conferences, and have finally gotten up the nerve to present at a few. I also do a bit of bicycle and motorcycle riding when the weather allows.
