Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:
"Are you an actor?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."
*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.
Gemini Zine Announcement
I started a #gemini zine or gemzine. It's called smolZINE. A little thing to curate some neat stuff that's on gemini on a regular basis. If that sounds like something you'd be into check it out.
heads up if you use twitter at all
in typical jack dorsey fashion, the new tipping feature on twitter, which uses paypal, sends the tip recipient the full name and address of the person sending the tip
if you don't have a business account set up to obscure that info, you could very well dox yourself
Apparently the new audacity owners are adding telemetry to it :/ This is....concerning. Especially because that PR discussion has _zero_ opposition to the feature being added
Anyone have any tips on getting borgbackup's mount (via FUSE) to work on #openbsd?
Currently hitting a brick wall, which left the following imprint on my forehead:
> borg mount not available: loading FUSE support failed [ImportError: No module named 'llfuse']
Suggestions appreciated, after I walk away from the "throw computer" place.
For those who need their own "GET REKT FAKED0G" stickers!
This is your reminder that #circusInPlace is happening tonight at 8pm UTC -5! I normally post as we open the chat, but due to some technical complications I won't be doing so tonight. The clowns have some rough weather warnings, so we may end up having to step out for a while. But hopefully we'll have a whatever passes for a "normal" night there instead! Looking forward to seeing you all!
I just watched Batman sing Orange Coloured Sky.
Old hollywood palace episode, was absolutely bonkers.
cw: it's from 1966..
Other than one rather terrifying and completely self-inflicted typo in my login.conf, I'm proud to report that the upgrade from #OpenBSD 6.8 to 6.9 was entirely uneventful. The automated upgrade is likely 100% bulletproof if you don't happen to have some clown like me tinkering around in /etc with write permissions.
I'm learning Scottish #Gaelic and oinline I use
- (slightly coughing 😊 ) Google as translation service https://translate.google.com/?sl=gd&tl=en&op=translate
Question to all the #gàidhlig learners and speakers: which online resources (dictionaries, courses, translation sites, reference, ... ) do you use or would you recommend?
I've been described by reliable sources as a zen fool, benevolent super villain, misanthropic community leader, clown father figure and Impish Cabaret Rasputin.
