Time to #introduce myself here at h-town.
I'm a #sysadmin with more decades in service than I care to think about. I'm a Unix guy who deals with Linux when I have to.
I am heavily into musical theatre ( #musicaltheater ) but don't act/perform. I mostly do lighting - most recently as Master SpotOp for Seattle Musical Theatre.
I love to cook, mostly baked goods and meat proteins.
I'm gay, single, and live in Seattle.
I generally won't accept follow requests from blank profiles.
Any other questions? Just ask.
#amtrak fans, good news! The "former" Delta executive who was running the service is now the former CEO of Amtrak!
This explains why they're doing so much to improve things now. The new executive is from another rail company and understand why Amtrak is important.
The vaccines are all effective against the Delta variant of Covid.
The longer there is a pool of unvaccinated people in the U.S., the greater the opportunity for a mutation that *is* resistant to the vaccines. That variant will then be able to spread at will, nearly as if we had started over.
Or worse, the thing could mutate to become more dangerous to children.
Please get your vaccines, people. We need to stamp this thing out while we have the chance, and for that, you have to do your part. #GetVaccinated
It's not just about you. Experts say getting a Covid-19 vaccine protects everyone around you:
I just went to adjust the chemistry in my hot tub but I broke the key that lets me get into the lid. It's 20 years old so it's not really surprising that it broke. The problem is I can't find any spare, if I ever had one. I guess I get to go back to the spa store and buy a new one next weekend. Sigh

please reduce your electricity usage so there is enough to keep all the billboards in operation.
please reduce your water usage so the amusement park up the road can keep running fake logs up and down a sluice filled with thousands of gallons of water an hour so they can get people to pay them.
please recycle the harder to reuse plastic bottles we have chosen to sell you rather than the wonderfully reusable, easy to sterilize, simple to recycle glass bottles we previously used.
@eggandburger Thanks for the follow but I think the instance I'm using is about to defederate from mastodon.social due to their incredibly lax moderation.
Seattle area people, a friend of mine is looking for an old serial terminal. Anyone have one they'd like to get rid of?
He says, "I'm looking for an old serial terminal for a side project, so please keep me in mind if you come across anyone with a pile of them somewhere. Specifically hoping for something along the lines of a Wyse WY-60, but not ultimately especially picky if it works."
Any and all answers are greatly appreciated. No judgement whatsoever. Asking this for research on a WIP article:
Do you #selfhost ? If so:
- What do you host yourself?
- Do you use an existing toolchain (Ansible/Puppet scripts, Yunohost, etc)?
- Do you run it bare metal, virtualized or containerized? Which one?

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
