Guys. I did it. I finally got a Pocket C.H.I.P.! It came in the mail 2 days ago, and I'm still learning how to use it right now. If anybody has tips or suggestions for me, I'm more than happy to hear them!

Today is the first #InternationalAsexualityDay and our mascot want's to spread the word and support all asexual people! :asexual_flag:

Dunno who needs to hear this but Fuck Autism Speaks.

ableism, fsf bs 

so apparently people are now excusing the creepy shit RMS does by blaming it on autism??? what the fuck??
Not only has he denied being autistic, it also feels just rlly insulting?? Like,, Im autistic and i dont go around doing creepy shit like he does,!! why would that be a valid excuse??? Being autistic doesn't require you to be a creepy asshole, and it's especially fucking weird when this is used as an excuse for an allistic person

fucking techbros >:(

it confuses me that people still say vocaloid is dying when you have new people like kanaria blowing up with every release, and old producers like DECO*27 continuing to pull in huge numbers. mafumafu is insanely popular among young people and still writes vocaloid songs and covers vocaloid music. ayase expanded into YOASOBI and yoru ni kakeru has 200 million views or something. there are more smaller producers creating good music than ever. the synthesis technology gets crazier and crazier every year. 2020 had the most active week of vocaloid song uploads in history. the scene has never been more fun! it's awesome!

Dear Mastodon, we're ~60 followers away from 12K! Can you help us get there?

Help by spreading the word that:

🔵 Privacy is a human right.

🔵 Tracking & surveillance are widespread on the internet.

🔵 Tor is a nonprofit that can help you take back your privacy online.

So, a new day and a new social media experience. Looking forward to trying out Mastodon.

I love Linux though am far from an expert, even after about 4-5 years as my main daily desktop. But I like learning.

My main interests are in the area of tools for writing (Emacs/org-mode, pandoc, LaTeX) and music-making (LMMS and Ardour mostly).

I've also been trying to re-activate my long-dormant programming skills via Python. But, you know, work and stuff gets in way.

Anyway, pleased to be here!

And idk how tls or any auth that requires multiple back and forths would work. Content based addressing would prob really be needed. Which makes me wonder, was ipfs designed with this in mind?

Maybe people change workflows too. Like before critical mass is acheived for caching, people would probably request a few articles, go away, and then read later.
Even when critical mass is acheived, for real time events like the news, the above would happen.

Has anyone done real research on how interplanetary internet access would work with those latencies?

Update on the iMac G3 I mentioned: I took it apart up to the computer components(don't mess with the CRT display if you don't know what you're doing), and there was no physical damage as far as I can see. No water damage, no broken chips, nothing. After putting it all back together, there's now a whirring sound. It still isn't booting up, so I suspect that it's an issue with the HDD/BIOS. Oh dear god, I hope it wasn't a magnet.

~♡Hello World♡~

My name is Berry! It's very nice to meet you all! I'm here to learn Linux and Python so that I can better prepare for my dream career in Linux SysAdmin and Infrastructure! Here's to hoping we can be good friends! I'm also saving up for the equipment for a FireWire RAID server, and a Pocket C.H.I.P.! (And possibly to get an iMac G3 to a repair shop, I don't know what's going on with it but it refuses to boot.)
