#FamilyMan been married for >14 years and have two daughters. Those three girls are my greatest love on this planet.
I consider myself a #GNU Evangelist. Learning about what #FreeSoftware was, including GNU/Linux, opened my eyes to so many things: governments aren’t the only ones stealing individual rights, I know so much less about computers than I thought I did, the idea of code, I can make a difference without having to know anyone particular.
I’m employed as contract Engineer in the Metal industry. My workplace is not yet unionized, but I’m hoping to fix that. #Union member of the #IWW IU440. I don’t have an engineering degree. After discovering Free Software I took my political scientist butt and found a call center job that paid for me to go to Community College to study Software Engineering, where I learned that I liked the idea of coding a lot more than I liked coding. The blessings of God put some great opportunities in my lap at just the right time.
I’m a #Libertarian and have been for over 20 years. The love of libertarianism is what lead me to first to a BS in #political science and later to falling in love with Free Software. These days I lean toward the left side of the libertarian spectrum including being a member of the Libertarian #Socialist Caucus of the Libertarian Party (LSC-LP). Sometimes I call myself a #LibSoc.
I’m a huge #sports fan, but don’t following any particular sport/team super closely. Lately I’ve been getting into #Cricket in addition to my other passions of Professional #Wrestling, Lower Division North American #Soccer, NHL & College #hockey, #baseball #olympics & #rugby (union and #RugbyLeauge). My whole life used to be American #Football, but now-a-days I can’t stand it anymore than I can basketball.
I’m a #BornAgain #Christian, accepting #Jesus as my savior at age 9. Received #Believers Baptism at age 18. Received the baptism of the #HolySpirit as evident in speaking in #tougnes later that year. The #Spirit lead me to the #Catholic #Church at age 20 where I was confirmed at the Easter Vigil. I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ in #recovery from lust. #XA #SA #CR Currently in the very early stages of discernment for joining the #Ecumenical order of #Fransicans (#OEF).
@yogthos why is this article even written? He doesn’t even say anything.
@yogthos national sovereignty is. BS anyway. States are no friend of the working class. The turmoil will continue until we unite as a class against the bosses across imaginary lines used to control peope.
@lemmyreader I’ve seen this joke before, but I suspect it was more likely the original as it was stackoverflow which devs actually use. Posting crap like that on Reddit is only for normies who want to pretend they are devs.

@TheEnigmaBlade because its efficient for cargo, for people cars or planes are better
@OptimusPrime Interesting. Just one question, why did you feel it belonged in !science
@AgreeableLandscape @Zerush any relation to the non-bianry nightmare Max the Impaler?
@OnishiMyers or we’ll shoot him first, either way.
@Zerush was suitcase thievery a big problem in the 1960s?
I forgot I have a bookwyrm account but the import of my CSV “library book queu” the way I wanted to I haven’t really liked at it again, though I had planned to massage the data and find out
@OptimusPrime Friendica (which I’m posting from right now) Pump.io, Plemora/Soapbox, Mastodon, GNU Social, Mobilzon (which is like MeetUp), i think that’s it, unless you count XMPP/Jabber, Matrix, and email which are also federated services.
@Here4It i honestly think you’ll be happier with GIMP. www.gimp.org/downloads/
@Owell1984 did you see that you no longer need a phone number to create an account?
@Usenobaralinux3 last I checked the piratebay still worked
@yogthos @dRLY Even better I found the original scientific paper they were referencing. THANKS /r/scholar ! transfer.sh/ujBHfV/jacs.2c0909…
@linux what’s wrong with just using whatever browser is in your repo?
@piracy more reasons to self-host, eh?
@yogthos A screenshot of birdsite is not a meme
@Zerush @OptimusPrime @science cuz it ain’t their money. It’s usually your money via a publicly funded university
@PP44 @Ephera that has been thought before too. quitter.no
@uthredii THANKS! that’s the image I was thinking of but i may have misremembered there numbers
@uthredii Influx of users doesn’t mean success. Mastodon.social is so slow right now that people who don’t realize how big the 'verse is, will just abondon and go back to birdsite, that’s not a plus
@OptimusPrime @_ed yep! The vast majority of free software has been written by paid workers.
@gcb @PolandIsAStateOfMind is there a particular revolutionary war you speak of? Most of those I am familiar with, including that of the country in which I reside, are more about which particular group gets to do the oppressing.
@PolandIsAStateOfMind @gcb what makes you say “political participation everywhere is close to zero”?
@Owell1984 Can you register with a VOiP number like Google Voice or TextNow?
@Owell1984 Sad panda
@Owell1984 @firstname.lastname@example.org Doesn’t the ability to access the service via a rotaing proxy negate that?
@yogthos you must have read a different article than I did
