I would do anything for Linux
But I won’t do that

I've been able to get my hands on the #TruthSocial source code (they do have a link to it on their website, although their website is not accessible to me).

They have disabled federation features. I absolutely expected that, just confirming it for others. It is just another walled garden.

Is anyone still out there? Haven’t posted here I’m ages.

It’s been a minute since I Linuxrocked Online. Sounds like a lot of the Fediverse is moving to pleroma? What’s the Craig?

I really want to like Purism, but this review matched much of my experience -- starting with broken hardware they were reluctant to fix and the CPU that goes nuts just about anytime you do anything.

Really feel like I wasted a lot of money on my Librem. anarc.at/hardware/laptop/puris

If you watch one Jaron Lanier lecture, this is one of the more comprehensive ones. youtube.com/watch?v=1dbws3HfaJ

Who's good at Red Hat Openshiftand what's a good way to get good quickly?

Bleg (hell/recommendation) for Fediverse guidance - is there a fediverse blogging platform that’s somewhat like how LiveJournal used to be? Need more than 500 chars and a reasonable probability of a few readers. Can post images, links and formatted text. Anonymity and open-mindedness. Ability to discover like-minded types.

words to look for that could indicate (possibly subconscious) victim blaming (all referring to the victim) 

why did they even get in that situation?

i wouldn't have done that.

they should have been smarter than that.

they should have just left.

they knew what they were getting into.

i hope they learned their lesson.

they just ignored all the warning signs.

they deserve what they got.

Samples of more than 60 songs from 1990 mixed together into one 3½-minute song. So many classics!

Geek moment with FTP:
Galaxy Note 5 says I am out of space. I have 5,344 files in DCIM/Camera.
Most transfer methods choked accessing this folder, including mtp and terminal.
Discovered SharMe (MiDrop):
Sets up an FTP server, then FileZilla to the rescue!

"We didn't call it fuzzing back in the 1950s, but it was our standard practice to test programs by inputting decks of punch cards taken from the trash.

We also used decks of random number punch cards. We weren't networked in those days, so we weren't much worried about security, but our random/trash decks often turned up undesirable behavior.

Every programmer I knew used the trash-deck technique."

I haven’t stanned for Jaron Lanier enough lately. Very interesting analog here about William Edwards Deming. archive.org/details/hopeconf20
