I generally see my microblog posts to be pretty normal, but my mother asks me about the things I say on here in a very concerned way.
Hi mom. This list is pinned for you to help get rid of some confusion
* GNU is not a drug
* I cannot download drugs
* I am not suicidal, it is just part of the joke.
* I am grammatically incorrect, not mentally ill.
* I am not part of a gang.
* The flashing button that says "Fix my computer" is NOT to be pressed.
* I may not always show it, but I love you.
Since I've been struggling to understand them for quite some time now, I've written an article about Guile-OpenGL. The bindings aren't particularly challenging to figure out, but there are so few articles about them and I haven't uploaded in ages.
Oh, the link

I think conventional forum sites hold a much higher level of user experience & integrity than unified forums (like Reddit) or social media (Fediverse).
Maybe not "higher" but "different".
Having to access the domain, create a unique account, and fill out a "Captcha" box is something very few spammers/trolls would care about doing, whereas on Reddit you already have access to every other sub around.
I kind of miss the old forums I used to be active in (even though I was usually "the idiot" 😅).
I watched the first starwars... I liked it. Skipped the others. I disdained that it really hadn't been thought through very well when DV turned out to be a white guy and the dad of the kid. Not Jones.
You know what is really fun to watch? The japanese movie that Lucas copied - right down to the 'sword play'.
You probably know this already as Kurosawa is so famous, but I had no idea until a bit over ten years ago.
It opens with two idiots squabbling in the desert...
According to #ASUS, it's ergonomically efficient to tilt your wrists *upward*!
I may not be an expert in ergonomics, but I strongly disagree with Asus. Upward-tilting keyboards are so the typist can see button labels, but they *DO* put strain on your wrists. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

I can relate strongly to this dragon.
cnn.com tells you the weather at the bottom of the page, because of course #CNN is /everyone's/ go-to weather network!!
Canada intends to change the law to make it harder for asylum seekers rejected by countries like the US to file refugee claims at the border.
Great. Now we're equally mean spirited, cold and unfriendly. Why help our fellow humans? Fuck that says my government. Let's put them between a rock and a hard place instead. Mr. Trudeau wants to sit at the grown-ups table with Mr. Trump.
I write code in Lisp, I live in Canada.
Currently very interested in GNU Hurd
