First tooooooots...

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 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?

Colin Mochrie is very good

image 1: "Happy birthday to my lovely daughter. 28 years old and everything we've ever hoped for in a child."

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.

"The world's unfair, kiddo" is not an argument for "then allow unfairness", but instead is an argument for "Then make the world *FAIR*"

Tom Waits has a new song out, it's a cover of an Italian Anti Fascist song

It is hard for me to overstate this. My very favorite band of all time who has tried to stay apolitical since 1985 has released a song yesterday, on September the Eleventh, 2018, and it is, well, a good song.

RT BREAKING: Worst possible outcome in the European Parliament copyright vote: MEPs vote for #uploadfilters , #linktax, a narrow #TDM exception for data-mining, no #freedomofpanorama—plus a new IP right for sports organizers.

hello new followers! here is my ask:
Please find some way to create effective change in your neck of the woods. find (or found!) a local advocacy org you agree with, and start showing up to meetings, either irl or online. if you live in the twin cities, or the sf bay area, I can give you some pointers. if not: google can!
make your cities better, cleaner, and greener: there's a million ways to do it, and your help is needed. you are needed! pitch in.

@adam Have you tried out X2GO? I quite like it to be able to log in and suspend and come back to remote X sessions.

@adam I use tigervnc only listening on localhost and ssh in with ports forwarded. I feel like the performance is decent, but it would be nice to have a better solution.

The biggest mistake "cyberpunks" made was that we'd all look like cyberpunks.

@adam I've wanted RDP on Linux for years. It's such a good protocol, you have to wonder how it came from MicroSoft... Because it didn't - the core of it came from a strongarm deal they made with Citrix...

Brap! 💨

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. Alternate interface available at ... Pinafore alt interface also coming soon.
