I do help desk/service desk work, and am studying computer science as an older student. I love running services out of my home and tinkering with hardware.
I'm a democratic socialist / anarchist, love music like Scissor Sisters, Carly Rae Jepsen, Janelle Monae, Disasterpeace... hoping to find more #DSA people here
I'm overwhelmed with new homeowner issues and don't post much, but I might start treating my mastodon feed like my underused blog..
so follow me?
Guess I'll tag some of #interests for easier topic checking? Does that work?

voting is harm reduction. it only changes things on the margins, but some people live and die by those margins.

Howard Zinn: Don’t Despair about the Supreme Court
"The courts have never been on the side of justice, only moving a few degrees one way or the other, unless pushed by the people. Those words engraved in the marble of the Supreme Court, "Equal Justice Before the Law," have always been a sham."
doctor who, just vaguely spoilerish Show more
What I particularly loved about the #DoctorWho premiere is that it's clear that *empathy* is back. And the know-it-all smarter-than-you attitude is gone or reduced. I loved *some* things about the Moffat era but my big mood is Good Riddance!
And something about the vibe & music & Jodie just feels like '70s who in good ways.
I have seen the new #DoctorWho and I am happy to report the show is in exceptionally good shape for 55 years old. And the new Doctor seems to have the right attitude from the start: she helps people.
Odd fact about me: my "first Who" is the wrong actor for the time I was watching the show. I started watching #DoctorWho in summer 1986, which was Colin Baker's era - but at that time, the station in Australia on which I was watching Doctor Who was airing Jon Pertwee episodes, so Pertwee is My Doctor despite my having been born after he left the role.
Pretty into the #DoctorWho premiere.

@GeezerGeek Great to see you here. Who should you follow? Well, that depends on your interests. But assuming Linux as an interest, here's a few accounts you might want to follow:
Colin Mochrie is very good

image 2: "Thanks to the fans of this page for being supportive and human. To the trolls, my thoughts and prayers to your body for losing it's mind and soul so tragically."
Re-drafted to include captions to the image, I'm sorry for not doing that before.

A space for your toots and braps. This is mainly a personally-run instance for me & my family, but we are friendly to socialists, anarchists, feminists, LGBTQIA+, the poly/non-monogamous, and general lefty activism. Also welcome: technology, programming, and whatever. Feel free to join! But don't expect 100% uptime. I'll try to alert when downtime might occur, it should be minimal.
