Pinned toot

People whose first initial interaction with me, is to pick a fight over my personal preference in the whole GNU/Linux naming controversy will be blocked.

I don't care which side of this fence you come down on. But I ask for the same lack of care about my usage from others.

Right wing libertarian types who identify as such will be autoblocked as they reply to my political posts.

Political posts will be marked w/ content warning as such.

It's nothing personal; I just don't use this account for those kinds of debates.

Also im not really criticizing that lag time. GNU Robots isn't hardly maintained upstream; its a low priority package from many angles.

Thats far from the worse outlier ive seen for a low priority package. I once had an outstanding PPC specific bug for the shell script Ubuntu wrapped Squeak in for half a decade.

A year and a few weeks later my patch to fix GNU Robots in ports was merged. (Mostly build system tweaks if I recall correctly. )

Seriously forgot I submitted that thing.

Better late than never I suppose.

Well its hot enough over here in NC that a pack of diet cokes will spontaneously explode in the back of your car if you forget them there. Don't be an idiot like me.

Apparently Nazis showed up at an Anime convention in Raleigh NC today.

Not sure if following Hate Trackers social media is good for my mental health, even though it seems like a not bad idea in terms of physical safety.

Watched Detective Pikachu. Enjoyed it, found the ending interesting in a can't discuss spoilery reasons way.

US Citizen?

Take a moment to protest the monstrous rule stripping away protections from our transgender friends. Protections that prevent them being denied medical care when dying of injuries.

This is important.

Missing out of the city's annual vegan fest much to my annoyance. The adventuring party I am in today has kind of derailed it; though our plans to see this Detective Pikachu film thing remain intact.

ICANN granted Amazon.com the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.

Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.

Has the Atari VCS been revealed clearly as a scam / notscam yet?

Verdict is that the voltage regulator on my Sega Nomad is out. Modder can replace it; though its likely going to take two weeks for both the part to come in and to mail it back to me.

Just gotta be patient.

Saw a warning about Nazis planning to show up at a Pride event in a city the same name as ours in another state. Their pride day isnt too far off from ours either. Scared me for a moment. Disturbs me still. That's the point I guess.
