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.

It's #winsday!
What are your recent wins? Are you on the cusp of proving dark energy is everywhere, therefore the dark side of the force is what surrounds us? Did you get out of bed?
Big, small - we want them all!

Thing I just heard about: 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.

Friendly reminder to you folks out there writing code for follow bots and the like.

If a fediverse user has 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.
