We'd like to speak to a couple points that have been building.

This is not an instance advocating for use of BSD, nor a certain project. 99% of the time people do not need to be running a BSD variant. They're not "fun." They're just useful, and not for everyone.

I don't mean "not within the abilities of everyone." I mean they genuinely don't solve additional problems for most people. Why urge a switch unless someone is curious?

These are just sets of tools. Good options, but among many.

Last year, my pear tree produced one pear. This year I got two!

If this trend continues I will be able to supply 100% of Australia's pear requirements within 25 years.

so yeah i'm going to continue to get angry about Apple's business decisions, and I'm going to continue to distrust them. They are the architects of internet centralization of a really insidious kind and it's fucking evil.

I managed to run #peertube on #OpenBSD without Nginx but only native Base software, eg #relayd and http.

I feel pretty awesome.

every esports event is deeply embarrassing. not because theres no skill in it, or because the players are doing something diminutive, or that they're not good looking or anything like that. it's because every esports event wants to be football and so every photograph is taken with super high contrast and the players are like, pointing at stuff, and everything is called an arena and shit. its way too self-serious

It is important to report bugs in opensource projects because people writing code can't fix bugs they are not aware of.
