I was at the library and asked if they have any books on "paranoia", the librarian replied, "yes, they are right behind you"

*phew, so happy that turned out, the copy paste was mangled, so I had to manually add newlines

forget anyone else, sex toy hackers are the real celebrities

Tfw you got your arm signed by two foundational teledildonics researchers (renderman runs internet of dongs, and smea gave a talk on hacking internet/bluetooth controlled buttplugs at DEF CON this year)

And yes, I AM aware that like 2 terminals, including GNOME terminal support color emoji pretty much out of the box, but that's like 2 out of tens of terminal emulators

It's 2019, and emoji support on _most_ linux terminals is still hard, and I'm mad

Welp, time for this to occupy my mind for the whole rest of the day

Like, I just thought of "trying to learn to do X by Y is like trying to become a comedian by memorizing a joke book." I have the metaphor, but I don't know what to describe with it

You ever come up with a metaphor before it's actual use-case?

Oh, I love the smell of free software in the morning

I am Ahab, captain of my vessel the Pequod. As fate would have it, it were not Moby Dick, that white whale which stole my leg, rather, a funk whale, which has stolen my ear...

Ok enough already, music.librepunk.club kicks ass, I'm gonna contribute my own songs/playlists soon as I have time, xcuse me while I bop to these here tunes

I feel very sad, happy, and sappy after returning from Vegas, and unlike other platforms, I feel safe expressing that here. Here's to continued inspiration from good people that I know

recently at DEF CON, I met some of the best people I've ever met in my life (including @haskal, who technically I met a month before, but I consider DEF CON where I really met him). And the way they talk about Free Software, it's truly inspiring. It's made me rethink what really matters in my life, not just in terms of software, but in what possessions I care to own and how I interact with people

fortunately I stopped being a dumb dumb and thought about it: what is a more grungy, cyberpunk, cool, hacker place than the beautiful instance run, managed, and hosted by one of my friends? Who cares about downtime? It adds character, proves this instance is _real_, and there's almost none of it anyway. And this server already comes preloaded with some of the best content and people in the Fediverse. I could not be prouder to make librepunk.club my instance

additionally, going through this instance's old toots and reading like 90% @wgahnagl, I have more inspiration to use Mastodon. I killed my birdsite account bc fuck it and fuck that company, but I was at first skittish to switch my name over to here rather than a (larger, possibly more reliable) instance

my home instance, librepunk.club, is the only site I have so far given firefox permission to give me notifications for

Deleted my birdsite just now bc pineapples are way better

A friendly mastodon instance primarily for shitposting, gays, and the glory of the free and open source software movement.
