I am done capitalizing i in the middle of sentences. If it's at the beginning i will. Otherwise it's a waste of a keystroke...

My first official toot.

I come to Mastodon as an escape from facebook. I will try to cut it out 100%. Maybe some friends will follow. I'll post all sorts of things some personal some tech/linux related.

Been a linux user for about 15 years left windows behind.(as much as possible)

I run Arch currently but have used Gentoo,Funtoo,Ubuntu and others.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. I know little on the programing side but am trying to learn some of that as well.

Thanks for reading.

If anyone reading this is looking for an alternative RSS feed reader/service at no cost I am willing to setup some of you on my tt-rss instance. The VPS I have should be able to handle a decent number of users.

Also I would be willing to give a few of you some space on my Nextcloud instance as well. Like 10 or so users 10gb each.

I realize not everyone can afford to self host or wants to for that matter so I'm offering what I can. Just send me a PM here and we'll settle things.

I don't visit this instance/account very much anymore. How's everyone doing?

Night photography on iso200 film maybe not such a good idea. Maybe if I turned the shutter even slower(the LCD showing shutter speed on my camera has no backlight so I have not clue what it picked) or opened up the aperture more(I think I was at 5.6) still something close to what I wanted.

When I was younger I would not close a "parent" process until a "child" process was done. More specifically if I downloaded a file from the net then ran said file from within the browser I would not close the browser until that downloaded file was done doing its thing...

I've finally mirrored my latest blog post over to gopher

gopher://gopher.pizza:70/0/~marcg/GBlog/2022-01-09.txt

I need to start paying more attention to my little gopher space

I actually kinda like crypto.

Cryptography, that is.

Hey all, I have a sincere request. Please boost if you can.

I am helping some wonderful people in Merauke in West Papua learn more about their colonial past. I have always supported the Papuan people in their struggle for self-knowledge and freedom.

Could anyone who speaks Dutch please help me translate this text here into English?

I am going to then help translate this text with them into Indonesian. If someone knows how to translate Dutch into Indonesian, that would be just perfect!!

Again, please boost.

Very Important Question 

Where do leftovers go?

I want to learn more about WW2. Where should I start?

Was going to listen to this podcast

https://worldwariipodcast.net/

But that's a long time commitment to listen to all episodes.
Found some old DVDs containing rare footage of a friend of mines band circa mid 2000's. If you are up for a good metal show you can find them here.

So a while ago I found this Polaroid Sun600 camera at a thrift store for $10. Had to get it. Finally got some film for it and all o gotta say my fellow humans is that there is something magical about watching a picture developed in front of your eyes.

For a 40 year old camera/tech it takes pretty decent shots. Has its own magic feeling.

Best I can tell this model was manufactured in 1981...I just don't know for how long so not sure exactly how old this specific one I have is. But chances are 30+years old for sure.

Just in time for Bandcamp Friday, November's Monthly Music Book Club album is "Faithless Planet" by Yumi Sakata. Availabe at yumisakata.bandcamp.com/album/ for the cost of $(name your price)

It's available on Spotify and presumably other streaming services.

Let's have a listen and get together in the XMPP room (musicbookclub@rooms.chinwag.im) the weekend of 27/28 November.

I remember the first 8bit trip on YouTube, it was the first video that I saw that was full HD, 1080p - it was amazing

But after 12 years, actually two month ago - Rymdreglage released 8Bit Trip 2!!!!

It was worth the weight ;)))))))

Here it is

I'm not sure the audio captured properly. It sounded OK where it was recorded but now on my PC not so much...maybe it's just my PC somehow.
