FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.

Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.

It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.

Dear Mastodon users, beware of spam!

Today I got email stating that my is about to expire, and there was a link to renew my password.

If you receive such emails, absolutely do not click their links. Mastodon passwords do not expire. The link will only take you somewhere where you can lose your Mastodon credentials to malicious users.

(This may be relevant to other fediverse software than Mastodon too, I don't really know what the spammers are sourcing now.)


A server gets hacked by a script which guessed the username and password.

We should blame:

Why do people think it's okay to escalate a ticket in Comic Sans?

'Music on ribs', is when Russians bootlegged records by copying them onto old x-rays, then burning the central hole with a cigerrette.

Bat out of Hell may have started my love of rock and metal. Every single song's a belter.

Ukraine is a real country where millions of actual people live. It is not an "empty no man's land" somewhere in-between "the West" and "Russia".

All of Russia's rhetoric is as if the world consisted of only Russia and the US (maybe China too). Everyone else is just "territories".

It feels weird and angry to be in this situation when whether your country will continue to exist is being decided by other people.

In the same time I feel lucky we're close to Europe and thus more...relevant?

Make a document look like you've printed it out, signed it, and scanned it.

I've added my documentation notes to my website.

The idea's to have the shortest plausible set-up instructions (for services) or just some common examples, so get people up and running as quickly as possible.
