Pinned toot

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.

Whoever thinks arrays should start at 1 are the same people who stay on the same space when they roll a 1 in Monopoly.

One time, not long ago (maybe a few years), I saw some kid playing a Gameboy Advance SP (red) on a park bench. It was so cool to see, especially in the smartphone-era.

Me: Ah this weather makes me feel like relaxing.

Every cell in my brain: Well fine, if you wanna *waste your life away* go right ahead!

Whenever I open a package with scissors I feel like someone's going to jump out from behind a bush & show me the "correct" way of opening this type of package.

I'm starting to get into Guile (and scheme/lisps in general), and the tooling is ugly IMO. I think I'll create a command line just to have some sane defaults when running guile scripts.

Very important news:

I can't tell if there's a bug flying around my room or if it's just an eye floater.

Richard Stallman's beard is totally white now.

In a way, he really is a lot like Santa Claus.

I guess I can't not say something about the 4.14 release.

Good job, XFCE people.

@MutoShack @recj the FSF should sell the free software song on a 7 inch vinyl record

How about "Collector's edition" box sets for Free Software projects?

For instance: 1.0.

You spend $70. You get a nice box containing the distro CD/USB, a keychain, a poster, a wristband, and a book (either a print of the manual or a detailed history of the distro).

The CD/USB can also contain a cute little TXT file congratulating the buyer ("You are one of the lucky 500 bla bla bla...")

gonna give #Redox and #Hurd a try because I'm curious how their abstractions differ from #Plan9 's

they better have userspace union mounts tho

I was a camera man for my brother's home-made movie.

It's pretty so-so. I like his choice of music.

Also there's a furry at the end, so I'm sure it's good enough for the Fediverse!

"I have a great idea to get people to buy car insurance...

Let's make it *mandatory*!"

*high-fives all around*
