Gandi referral code if you would like to register a domain with free 3GB email boxes. I get 5 euro credit this way which I'll transfer to @thegibson for Htown upkeep when it gets to a reasonable amount.

Boost this if you know people looking for EU based, reasonable domain hosting.

Confirmed seeing my first Snow Buntings on my property. Been here at least 3 days. Hope they stick around. They are beautiful birds. Photo was taken from car through glass and zoomed. Sorry!

@thegibson Not sure if you are up this early or staying up this late.

What are townies doing for Halloween? Dressing up as spooky hackers and just jamming in the kitchen, cooking dinner and mulled wine?

Linux pro-tip:

alias open=xdg-open

Now you can use open any-file and xdg-open will check the mime-type and open it with the associated application.

Friendly reminder:

If your network has WoL enabled and configured you’re going to have a bad time when ryuk happens.

slavery, concentration camps, border camps 

do ppl just not realize that there has never been a period of american history in which there wasn't a massive population of racial prisoners in concentration camps, prisons, or enslaved? the state's practice of racialized violence literally has not changed on a fundamental, structural level in 400 years. detention camps, internment camps, the prison industrial complex. these are all the "afterlives of slavery" (saidiya hartman)

email client recommendation please 

Anything other than Thunderbird, which broke the gContacts addon AGAIN.

Gotta work 100% with gmail, contacts, possibly have a calendar implementation. Linux only. Let me know. Boosts appreciated.

I'm a bit fed up with Firefox & Mozilla. They still haven't implemented an inline translation API like Chrome has, but I got an email about some stupid Halloween hub they put together? Is this really what they spend their time and money on while laying off engineers? I think I'll export the bookmarks now.
