Good bye, Daft Punk. Many years with your music. Be assured that we are now harder, better, faster and stronger. Thank you.

Hmmm, I got an e-mail from FedEx saying the expected delivery on my tea shipment is 2021-02-20 by the end of the day. That's the current date in my time zone. The package is still in Pennsylvania, which is two or three states away from me.

Either someone fucked up or Speed Racer got a job at FedEx.

@swashberry PeerTube lacks a coherent, intentional community of video creators. Although there are people out there uploading stuff, there's a never-ending flood of second-hand garbage being uploaded to the network. It's actually a horrible situation, and drains any motivation to use it.

My theory is this: if you develop a small, isolated pocket community where a bunch of dedicated creators are all on the instance, you increase the incentive for them to keep coming back and making new videos. By cultivating a small, dedicated community, you can create a definite source for subscribers on other instances to watch and engage with, thus growing an actual community.

Initially, federation would be done at the subscription level, but as similar communities emerge, federation could be bumped up to the instance level (PeerTube can do both). The latter opens up greater discovery between instances, while reducing the amount of crap.

Repairing the ssh accces to my media server is not the way I want to start a Sunday... 😒

Wow, the video editor Olive looks promising. I usually use Shotcut but I'm going to install it to test if it works as we can see on the first impressions of some users.

It has also versions for all the major platforms apart from GNU/Linux.

- Because it has windows.

Honest question 

People who have worked through a ton of baggage, trauma, and self-loathing to become stronger, more resilient, and more confident: what did you do to change your situation? How did you heal?

I think a lot of my problems result from unresolved trauma and not a lot of self-love, but I'm not really sure what good steps are.

The alternatives to YouTube are growing faster. I've been spent time on Lbry for months and I've seen how the number of views of the streamers I follow are rising very fast. Some of them had in the past 10 or 15 views per video months ago and now they've got 60-70 views per video.

Those are ridicolous numbers if you compare them to YT but show a good tendence.

I'm wondering if there is a way of "donating" part of my upload bandwidth, that I rarely need, to services like or others. Can I install an instance on my server and "mirror" other instances or help them in any other way to deliver content via my upload?

Dear software engineers and web developers:

When I get an error code from one of your programs and am presented with a "More info" or "Learn more" link, I expect this link to interpret said error code for me or at least present a hint as to what may have caused it.

I do **NOT** want to be presented with an article telling me how to troubleshoot the software.

I do not want to troubleshoot the software. That is your job. Just tell me what the goddamn code means. You should know; you wrote it.

Running windows software on OpenBSD. 

I needed to run a couple of windows programs for school, so i installed wine in linux vm running in OpenBSD vmd.
I have to say although graphic and smp are currently not supported, vmd is still pretty good virtualisation software that can be used for running incompatible software and for virtualisation on servers.

Hello, Mastodon!
This is my first time using mastodon, so it will take me some time to get used to it. But for now everything looks great!

Small introduction:
I'm Linux and BSD user, and i enjoy using and developing free and open source programs. I am very interested in computer security and am currently learning x86 assembly and C languages.

If you’re going to try, go all the way.
Otherwise, don’t even start.
This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind.
It could mean not eating for three or four days.
It could mean freezing on a park bench.
It could mean jail.
It could mean derision.
It could mean mockery — isolation.
Isolation is the gift.
All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.
And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds.
And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.
If you’re going to try, go all the way.
There is no other feeling like that.
You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire.
You will ride life straight to perfect laughter.
It’s the only good fight there is.

-Charles Bukowski: All the way.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
in there.
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
you want to blow my book sales in
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
and we sleep together like
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do

-Charles Bukowski: Bluebird.
