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...

I have concluded that every bit of documentation concerning ldap and or samba is incorrect.

feel like running literally everything in docker containers is just static linking by other means

Flat-head screws are trash and they should feel bad.

A while back, I moved my Mastodon instance from a raspberry pi to a RockPro64 (from @PINE64 ). The hardware is significantly faster and pretty nice, but the software leaves something to be desired.
I've had the most success with Armbian, but at least twice now, they've deployed kernel updates that caused my machine to fail to boot. Re-imaging/etc. isn't a huge deal for my tiny instance, but it is frustrating.

electronics design of MNT Reform is complete. i gave the green light to finish motherboard assemblies.


Great news from the EU pushing interoperability between messaging apps! πŸŽ‰

uspol, Democrats 

@john I hear you and I don't disagree with that way of approaching it. However, I've been betrayed far too many times by the party I supported for many years, and it's exactly the kind of framing displayed in the tweet which is directly harmful to people who need help.

Brunch-set Democrats are not a friend to me & people like me, and until they either adjust their outlook or lose their grip on power, it's open season.


"They've never seen the Sanders wing of the party as anything but a threat to what they do for a living, which is basically take corporate money, and then sell themselves as socially progressive. That's what they do for a living. That's their business."

"The demonstration in support of Sergeant Bianchi was the whitest, raggediest gathering he'd ever seen in New York..."

@pluralistic's "Radicalized" is wonderful reading. It's depressing, insightful, exciting, and thought-provoking...and I'm only half-way through!

I just told a customer that it was "tired outside" meaning dark outside
