@dl @cwebber I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Chrome, is in fact, Chrome/Chrome, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Chrome plus Chrome. Chrome is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Chrome system made useful by the Chrome corelibs, browser utilities and vital browser components comprising a full OS as defined by Chrome.

(yes I know it uses linux as a kernel but this is funnier)

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

So, question for the peeps, would you like the trending stuff or shall we just ignore that?

The biggest bottleneck so far has been moderator time, but maybe we can work around that if you would like to see that.

So, I think it is finally time to get around to applying the latest upgrade. Expect 5-10 mins of downtime in a bit.

Hey, sorry for not announcing the downtime today, I missed that the campus router move would take out this network segment.

@werekat Hey, haven't seen you around in a while, and just checking in and wonder how you're coping, feel free to ignore if fedi is a burden.

Looking back, the 1990s-2000s were a weird anomaly in capitalism, where it felt like the old familiar 1980s cyberpunk fiction scenario of "a few billionaires will literally control the entire planet's Data Network" couldn't possibly happen because we'd managed to decentralise it all, only just in the nick of time, because first IBM and then Microsoft had been trying to slam the door shut. But the hackers had finally won and for good, with TCP/IP, HTTP and Open Source.

Those were good years.

It seems like russian warship took the advice and fucked itself.

Maybe with some neptunian help.

Everyone who's following the news has already heard about Mariupol. Briefly: test drive of a chemical attack.

So I'm going to post Tais's schedule for her art streams, when she's going to collect money that goes to getting people out of Mariupol.

Streams this week are Tuesday 15:00-17:00 Kyiv time (this means the stream starts 14:00 CET or 13:00 UTC) and the same on Thursday.

Come watch Tais draw and help her save people from her home city.

Seriously; is anyone hiring? I just got let go because "I'm just not a good fit" with no specifics or other information given, my fiancee is suicidal, and I was going paycheck to paycheck.

I can do just about any sysadmin work.

Just since it has come up more than once: I have an extremely short moderation temper for genocide apologetics and pro-Russian propaganda these days.

Report it when you see it.
