Feel like I need to make an anti-"rules for my shop" sign just to annoy the dudebro makers.

1. There are no stupid questions.
2. My tools are tools, use them.
3. Mistakes are great! Learn from them.
4. Lift up less privileged voices.
5. Is it gay? Good. :transsmiley:

OSes 

I've lost count at how many I've used. Consumer, industrial, minicomputer, mainframe, high concept to complete toy. Pre-release, beta, half broken dev builds. I've cut my teeth on so many UNIXes and Linuxes they all look the same.

So, what's the best?

The one you have, and the one that feels like home.

There is no ultimate OS. Prefer to crack code on bog standard Windows? That's cool. MacOS? Sure, if that works for you. I don't care if you're on a mean and lean Arch build, a Haiku Alpha, or some patched monstrosity running in a VM on top of Qubes.

Your home isn't my home, and shouldn't be.

That's what makes it beautiful.

Confession time 

My first job involved a lot of consulting. Mostly for telecoms, banks, insurance, gov, and even the military. High powered, enterprise stuff with million dollar licenses and secured data centers. Sometimes with loaded weapons.

There's a reason I make websites now, and for none of those people.

Intro 

Hi, I'm socketwench. You can call me 'wench or socket if you like. I mostly do Drupal and Devops by day, and enjoy bad sci-fi by night. I like creating things with my hands like toolboxes, portable computers, and keyboards. I also write tutorials and blog posts up on my site, deninet.com. Once and a while I also write fiction or draw things. I have...complicated...feelings about the term "maker" and don't apply it to myself. I don't even call myself a "hacker", unless you consider the broader Levian definition. I have a weird social emphasis on my love of tech, which might confuse you at first.

And yes, I still have hard copies of "Hackers" the movie, and all three soundtracks.

me writing code: hahaha yessss, fuck yes this is great i love coding

me compiling code: noooooo why is that an error what does that even mean

Me: "I should like, start a sticker wall in my shop."

Brain: "What's the point? No one will ever see your shop."

Me: "Yeah..."

Living with a black cat:

A small furry orb lives on your desk, like a hole in spacetime. Quiet licking sounds emanate from it.

OH: "I have as much ability to dance as a particularly stiff piece of A4 copier paper."

why'd they call it programmer socks when they coulda called it softwear

Really appreciating all the :boost_ok:​ on the Pinecil post, all. Thanks!

Hams and glutes are recovering. Plan is to let them rest today, since there's no way can get on a bike for 40 minutes tonight.

Instead of strength training tomorrow, I'll shovel more dirt into the 5 giant pots I bought on closeout at the hardware store.

And there's that urge to just delete the post entirely so as not to pollute the network with my drivel.
