#Introductions Hello to the fediverse, I guess?
I'm John, a systems administrator/devops/monitoring guy from Montana. Not sure how I'll use this, but setting it up was a fun way to test DigitalOcean doplets...
There's a part of me that suspects a bad network config that I just had to fix on buster...
The "How to Radicalize a Normie" video is now *age-restricted* on YouTube:
Literally a video that shows how alt-right radicalizes people and which can be (and has successfully been) used to de-radicalize people is now age-restricted.
I just can't.

elevator pitch: it's a bash script that assembles video entries from a collection of rss feeds into a "local access UHF television station" stream at crappy resolution, with optional custom titling of the videos and station idents via json or some bullshit, updated every 24 hours with a new rotation of videos for the broadcast day
<< Perhaps it is a function of age, but recalling the world No Logo described when I was 18 ..... does feel like harking back to a more innocent time.

Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
Sysadmin by day. Also kind of a SysAdmin by night (when I'm on-call).
