Pinned toot

New #introduction for influx of users, and since I never did one when I jumped over to 'town.

I am Dr. Skrzyk, a time travelling technologist who invented the internet in 2238, and went back in time to give the idea to Al Gore. I also told him to not marry Tipper so I'm batting 500.

I am an amalgam of interests and moods. I will {rant,joke,post} about: Linux/BSD/Unix, Security/Privacy, USPol, Music, and occasionally fib a little bit about my history on here. Even the false things are true - I'm more myself online than elsewhere. Look past the bluster - if what I'm saying seems absurd, I'm probably doing it intentionally.

I do screen follow requests. Out of courtesy, please don't be a bot, a nazi, a TERF, or the time police. Those fuckers are still pissed off that I leaked the internet before people were able to handle misinformation.

On that note, I will be signing off and catching up on Mando & Mr. Robot. Love to you all. Keep the spaghetti flying.

I am proud to once again count myself among a group of people that, if they went out in public together, bystanders would go, "What the fuck is up with THAT?!?"

I don't know why, but using my Trezor One for U2F makes me feel like I'm being a naughty, naughty boy... in a good way.

I realize I am not a reasonable soul.

For reference:

I know it's not cool to self-congratulate, but I'm really f'ing proud of my sigil, TYVM.

In the realm of problems I've dealt with today this is minor: I like the theme I set up for my "personal" blog (unstructured/shitposty) than my "professional-ish" site.

I think I really like being this Dr. Skrzyk person.

My hot-but-with-oven-mitts take on google's blocking move.

Look, I tried to be nice about it. I've learned the truth is multifacited. I still don't see a way to take what they're doing is beneficial.

ableist jokes 

I would like to avoid a hot take style rant, but I can see why they would want to promote security if they have a valid case and there are no alterior motives. I also don't know if they were transparent about this process, which is concerning. Google needs to remember they wouldn't exist without the linux community, and shitting on it is what we bird people call, "A Dick Move."

#Introduction & #Reintroductions post:

Hi! I'm Lt. Emojo of! :blobsalute:

I survived The Langoliers, Time Warps & got a cane I'm not afraid to use.

I got Admin privs in this instance originally for emojo duty - and unless you're a very naughty netizen that's how I like to, and will, keep myself at.

:blobwitch:​ I'm a daughter of the wire, a witch drawing strength from their pyre! :_stars: :_storm:

:WeAreNameless: I organize #WeAreNameless, a monthly community project on Fedi where Hackers & their friends (apparently half of Fedi) watch old sci-fi cyberpunk movies.

:C_H:​ This is my wishlist in the .com version:

If you're ever feeling like you wanna help me or just cheer me up, this would be a nice place to start. Thank you! :ablobsmile:

Tonight, DrOS (me) should watch

In case anyone else didn't know about it, Gunnerkrigg Court is one of the best webcomics on the internet. Large sections are summed up with gorgeous things like this:

That alone is brilliant - anyone who's read the volume of chapters that go with it instantly recall everything that went on. I wish I knew where he got that idea from

It was never the plan, but I can't think of a more sanity-reducing technological combination than redirects + browser cache + DNS ttl.

Hol up. What?!?

"The source code for Maximus and its companion utilities, such as Squish, was released under the GNU General Public License in 2002. It has since been ported to run under Linux, and other Unix-like operating systems. "

I... I can't get sucked into another project right now. OMFG.

The two hardest problems I know of are going to bed and getting out of bed.
