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.
Happy father's day. I love you, dad!
One of the few people at #Cisco who is genuinely an awesome person (i.e. cares about standards-compliance over proprietary protocols)
Why 300k people can't see my posts
I mean, there's more to this than just "muh free speech".
This is why I love the fediverse. Muting me on impulse or due to an overreaction is totally okay, because I still have millions of other amazing people to talk to!
The fediverse is fixed by default, unlike /other/ platforms, where, if something like this happened, I'd have to start over either on a new account or different platform.
Built one! Still Can't do an Ollie, but it feels good to do something besides computer science for once.
(Of course, one of my main motives is to better understand how a piece of intelligence "unconsciously" learns new skills via repetition & negative reaction, so arguably this is just algorithm research)
I need looser-fitting pants.
Why 3 Phase AC instead of Single Phase???

Maybe I should try #skateboarding.
I'm using a laptop with a 2k screen, and in order to make text a bit larger so that it's reasable, I've set the text size in the KDE settings a bit higher. This works in most applications, but Firefox seems to ignore it.
Is there a way to get Firefox to use a large font size for all sites? (i.e. like a default zoom level)
It's kind of annoying having to use Chromium.
Can't paste text in #Fedilab and now I'm sad. Well, good night, world. 🛏
I'm planning on making a forum software package in Guile because I want to better understand how Guile can be used in a client/server sort of way.
It'll either be half-baked or totally non-existent, but it's another project I'll add to the bin.
I write code in Lisp, I live in Canada.
Currently very interested in GNU Hurd
