My initial impressions of Microsoft Teams from an enterprise perspective:

It is a *really* good Discord/Slack clone.

I may have just ordered a standing desk.

Finally. I've been thinking about it for a couple of months already.

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

@vertigo I learned a lot of what I know about programming with Kickstart 1.3; I feel that was great for building character. Get the arguments wrong, the system crashes. Don't free resources explicitly, the resources are never freed. And so on...

My wife and I are going through a bit of a rough time at the moment. We're privileged to be in a better position than a lot of people right now, but we're stuck indefinitely outside our country of residence (China) and surfing from couch to couch. Most of our money is in a Chinese bank account we can't access while outside China (looong story). If anyone can offer me some paid work I can do remotely from #Aotearoa (#NZ), that would really help.

If the only way you can help is a boost, cool :)

For some reason, the WHO still says you probably shouldn’t wear a mask

In the United States, face masks are required in more and more places as part of the fight against the coronavirus. Many stores require them. Some governors are telling people they must wear a mask, even outdoors. Some journalists love scolding pedestrians and politicians who don’t wear them.

@lordalveric Write a script that DDoSes it with randomized login attempts.. they wont have any way to verify which logins are real or not without using them at github.com and ultimately get throttled as they use up their IP pool

Beware of the glthubs.com phishing attacks. I nearly fell for this one.


The only thing that saved my bacon is that I should already be logged in! Then I noticed the funny-looking domain name.

The more I use #Fedora, the more I like it as a day to day driver. If only using Nvidia weren't such a pain in the ass on it.

Well im back in my Philly home for a bit. I must admit I really missed my beast of a computer and my Electonics lab.
