Greetings, people! I am a software developer. Outside of work, I use free/libre software almost exclusively. I am pained that we continue to allow nature and community to get degraded by crony individualism. We can do much better, e.g. the voluntary refugee concept.
I have been chuffed with the #Fediverse almost all of the time I have been on it. There is plenty of food for thought in many a toot out there. I am having to move off @wyatwerp now, and really happy to find a Fediverse instance that ... uh ... federates.
@MikeElgan But, was Peru's president a rich, entitled white guy whose daddy set him up in business? It makes all the difference. Apparently.
When the country decides to treat healthcare as a business, then exploit the labor out of “a moral calling,” then pass pay cuts that prior generations have continued to can the can down the road rather than actually solve, while seeking to extract as much profit for the groups and admin and middlemen, you get a system on the brink of collapse due to short staffing. There isn’t a labor shortage, there’s a shortage of people willing to continue to be exploited. Same as every other field right now.

Our family was at a restaurant and I was about to teach our kids the game "hangman" while we waited for the food, but before I said the name out loud, I realized that was kind of fucked up, so I took a second and came up with "dancing robot" which the kids love and we play all the time, now. There's no need to normalize brutal executions to have fun with your kids. #parenting
@thezerobit Can you at least point me to someone else's collection of evidence?
I'm frustrated because I've had conversations with our admin and I don't think he's some kind of crypto-Nazi. The qoto timeline, which anyone can see, is in no way full of hateful garbage. (There is some awful stuff in the qoto *federated* feed.)
At the same time, there are all these rumors about qoto that nobody seems to be able to back up.
People on both sides seem reasonable and kind; I don't understand why they're fighting.

Love it! Great work.
I cut my professional teeth designing these sort of bit twiddling optimizations.
Whether you are running on a 16-bit, 32-bit processor, or on a 64-bit pocket super computer—sometimes every bit and ever cycle matters.
I will soon have witnessed both the beginning and the end of the Information Age in my adult life.
@tommorris It is perfect for firehosing.
Massively produced plausible non-truth can easily overwhelm a recipient. Kind of a DDOS for knowledge.
@tommorris You’re brave! As soon as I discovered this AI of unknown morality wanted my phone number to register I decided not to bother. 😳
The might be a reason to try out this amazing OS again.
A man walks into his local library.
Man to the librarian: "Do you have a book about Pavlov's Dogs and Schrodinger's Cat?
Librarian: "Ah now that rings a bell, but I'm not sure if it is there or not"
