Death of a family member. 

Dad just passed away. RIP

Why is every single linux youtuber doing reactions to the LTT linux challenge video. Pretty much none of the vids have anything to add to it. I get that its a cash grab since LTT is a big channel but omg they're so blaaannndd.

I swear if I ever have kids they're gonna be starting on a 6502 based computer. Then probably some old ass Unix. They're not gonna get to use Amazon Ubuntu 41.04 LTS until they're atleast 13.

Negatively, nihilism? 

I feel so disconnected from the universe

re: explaining fediverse to people 

@duponin You're already on fedi, so I assume it wont tell you more than you already know, but the way I explain it using that method generally goes something like

Let's say you're on Facebook and a friend is on Twitter. You want to send them a message, but you can't send messages from FB to twitter, right? That'd just be weird right? (Generally people agree that this is indeed the case and would be weird otherwise)

Of course you can also call them on the phone. Let's say you're with a telephone provider BlablaFon. A friend also has a phone, but they are with another provider, namely Phonica (I'm using fake names here, typically I use existing names they know because that parses easier).
Now image that you're calling them, but it doesn't work and you get told that it's normal it doesn't work because they are with another provider. That be weird right? You both have a phone and a subscription, you should be able to call each other, right? Why would a provider not allow calls to another provider? (Generally they agree that this would indeed be weird)

Yet, when we want to contact each other from one social media account to another, we suddenly not only think it's normal that it doesn't work, we'd even think it's strange if it would work! But it works for phones, why would it not work for social media either? (Here I typically see in their facial expressions that something clicks for them)

So that's basically what the fediverse is. Just like you have several telephone providers, we have different social media platforms. But even if you're on a different platform, you can still talk to each other like you're part of one big network. Or better put, you *are* all part of one big network, namely the fediverse.

Bringing back TZAG and TZAF, I don't see them enough anymore but they were popular in the old fediverse days!

TZAG! (Time Zone Appropriate Greeting)
TZAF! (Time Zone Appropriate Farewell)

Why do so many FOSS chat apps have broken push notifications?

Worst part is I wasn't even "visibility queer"

I'm wearing masc clothing. I just happen to have a small body and long hair. I was carrying a bowl cos I just ate sweets. (Which translates to one of the slurs in hindi). These peeps just stop their bike right in front of me and started harrassing me.

Fuck this place.
