Hi! I'm Cosmo. ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒ๐Ÿช๐Ÿ’ซโญ๐ŸŒŒ Thanks to my , I've been a and enthusiast all my life, I am following in his footsteps. My first computer was an Apple ][+. I miss the days of calling BBS's and chatting on D-Dial. I used to run a board in the early 90's called Mission Control in the area. Here are hashtags I'd love to follow:

So, a horse walks into a bar and orders a pint. The barkeep says, "You're in here pretty often lately. Do you think you might be an alcoholic?" The horse replies, "I don't think I am," and then vanishes from existence. You see, the joke is really about Descartes' famous quote, "I think; therefore, I am." but if I had explained this before the joke, I would've been putting Descartes before the horse.

I'll show myself out now.

I want to migrate my account to a new instance, but it appears that there's a snag when the new instance has defederated the old one. How does one migrate in that situation?

I agree, Warnock will prevail, they're smashing early voting records nearly everyday. A condition that tends to favor the Democrat ticket.

Prediction: Warnock wins by 5 points. ๐Ÿ™‚

Both parts passed the House of Reps today. It now goes to the Senate tomorrow for a vote, and at least 3 GOP senators said they are on board to vote in the 7 paid sick days. Hopefully there are more, it needs at least 60 votes to pass there.

Senator Bernie Sanders pushed forward an amendment that would guarantee all national agreement railroad workers 7 days of paid sick day time. Right now railroad workers get zero. The other agreement only includes 1. They vote on this TODAY. For our economy, it's imperative we take care of our workers that work outdoors, long hours, schedules that disrupt most family living, in unclean industrial environments. Please support the 7 sick pay days for the railroad workers.

Therapist: There you go! I hope you got something from that

The Intel 8086 was released in 1978, starting the x86 line that still dominates computing. I'm reverse-engineering the chip by studying the silicon die, and I think I've spotted a bug fix in the silicon. They didn't have microcode updates then so they patched the silicon. ๐Ÿงต

I do not like that this needs to exist, but I'mma boost it until it's not. Do likewise, as you will.

Elon Musk says he'll make his own phone if Google and Apple de-platform him: gizmodo.com/elon-musk-alternat

I'd LOVE to see him try. (iOS has been developing since 2005-ish, and Android for even longer; the only way he'll get a software stack is to use Android as a platform or buy in a cheap also-ran from China. Either path is a quick way to lose a few billion dollars more without shipping a useable product. A dozen billion here, a dozen billion there, pretty soon it's all gone ...)

Elon's take over of Twitter will change the behavior of the digital world. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Flickr and Tumblr are thinking about intergrating ActivityPub so it will connect to the #Fediverse. :fediverse:

Everywhere you look, people are being laid off, but #Mastodon is growing. ๐Ÿ“ˆ

The world finally understands that social media can not only be fun, but also have the privacy of the user in mind. ๐Ÿค

We don't need billionaires to create a good world. โค๏ธ

I agree with this 100%

There is no "stay and fight" on Twitter. If you're there, you're grumbling under your breath at a Nazi rally and calling it "resistance"
