I just migrated everything to , even the blog.
At first glance the whole platform looks to me very "complete" but a little bit complex, however I'm sure that after a week of use It'll be easier.

i like to use double ampersand outside of the command line && the idea is that you shouldn’t read the second thing unless you followed the first (just as a unix command attached to another by “&&” will only be evaluated if the first command exits status 0) && i like to use semicolons in the same tradition i.e. to be evaluated regardless of what came before; i love unix!

A couple things I saw and thought "Mastodon will love this":

- Alias, a 3D-printed "parasite" that sits on top of your Amazon Echo or Google Home, feeding white noise into its mic until you say the wake word:

- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook:

i want to set up a dial-in only BBS

i have read this guide about how to set up a dial up server using VOIP

but i am confused: will this setup just provide an internet connection through mine over dial up?

all i want to do is have someone dial up using a modem and immediately see my BBS when they connect through a modem

how would i go about doing that?

@lynnesbian As a twenty year old single male I think it's very hard to find a girl who's actually interested in free software. I've had girls jokingly ask to "Netflix and chill" but when I tell her that I don't use Netflix since Netflix requires proprietary software to stream content, they stop talking to me. And worse if they do stay they think I'm weird since I blocked google IP's in my host file and we can't even watch youtube. (1/3)

Well, another day has passed, I think I'm going to the cinema tomorrow.

Dreaming about visiting new cities and restart hacking gentoo for the next week. For now, have a good night.

Back in the days when couples used to exchange mix tapes with cryptic messages...

I only let one of them survive because the tracks on this one were great. I sent the rest away to cassette tape heaven.

Thank you, RS.

I was hindered by a fucking gate. I have to improve my lockpicking skills or increasing the tractions in the gym.

wired: replace your laptop with a Rpi inside a cardboard box and chat on IRC.
