I'm a pretty "run of the mill" geek. I'm an operations engineer by trade and don't talk much about work here unless i'm having one of those days.
I'm locked down if you try to add me, but that's so I can filter out the bots. If you've got a few posts I'll accept :)
Writing my #MeetBSD presentation has brought all sorts of old stuff to mind.
One ISP I ran had two routers, Rocky and Bullwinkle. Their job was to get packets through.
The #OpenBSD packet filters/traffic shapers were called Boris and Natasha. Their job was to stop moose and squirrel.
Nerd humor is the worst. Especially mine.
lol the SSL cert on Namecheap's customer panel has been in an expired state for hours now
"OpenBSD 6.4 has a new daemon, rad(8), for IPv6 Router Advertisements"
that's rad ✨

Thing I just heard about: https://translifeline.org/
"a national [US/Canada] trans-led organization dedicated to improving the quality of trans lives by responding to the critical needs of our community with direct service, material support, advocacy, and education. Our vision is to fight the epidemic of trans suicide and improve overall life-outcomes of trans people by facilitating justice-oriented, collective community aid."

This new LORN album is his darkest yet. wow.
Identity Thieves that *copy* data from Surveillance companies are doing this same thing as those companies - using data of our lives against us without our input or control.
We should have control over our data.
This is a political issue.
Technology has only and will only continue to allow this surveillance at massive scale.
Vote, run for office, conduct civil disobedience (if you’re willing to face the consequences), call your representatives and hold them accountable.
what if every dramatic scene of two characters playing chess was replaced by a scene with Hungry Hungry Hippos
Friendly reminder to you folks out there writing code for follow bots and the like.
If a fediverse user has #nobot in their profile it means we don't want your bot accounts following us, we want actual accounts with humans at the helm doing the interactions. Please adjust your script's accordingly and follow some good etiquette. I've just had to block five follow bots because I've been AFK for a couple weeks not fielding this and its kind of obnoxious.
Interesting, I've just turned down my pi-hole because pfblocker-ng does the same thing :)
successful rolling up of appliance functionality. I can get behind this.
