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.

If you watch one Jaron Lanier lecture, this is one of the more comprehensive ones.

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.

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.

Anyone who wants to chat right now is my new best friend.

Longshot looking for - maybe six years ago I saw a YouTube video of a presentation given at a users group that went through common complaints about three old pieces of software run on Linux (I know X windows was one of them but I can’t remember the others) and why the newer alternatives were better... Then it went back and steelmanned the case for using the older versions.

I would like to show it to a Junior Dev on my team. But I can’t find it again. Ring any bells for anyone?
