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...

I have had a tremendous amount of instability lately on my RockPro64 that is hosting this instance.

I guess random hangs that I can't diagnose are fine?

Let's hope switching from Armbian Ubuntu to Armbian Debian Buster will make a difference...assuming it was just something in userspace...it might!

So we beat on, tooting against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past

The "How to Radicalize a Normie" video is now *age-restricted* on YouTube:

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.

andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

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.
