If you decide to follow me because I like OpenBSD or write tips about vi, be warned:

I believe:
-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
-Meritocracies aren't

If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.

@minego just found this in a local toy store.

’s “swipe up opened image/video to dismiss it” feature is so convenient it really bugs me i can’t use it in other apps.

White boys on dates late at night, glowing because they're so pale, they attract the swarm.
By the thousands moths fly out of their ancient mothing grounds and all at once, the boy is gone. In his place the moths have left you a gift. It is a small lamp.
It is beautiful.

i'm gonna say it AGAIN

if your game only allows for a male playable character, but ESPECIALLY a cis white male

it's bad. it's a bad game. you've made nothing original. it's boring. bad bad bad

I've settled on a name for my #ActivityPub #WordPress plugin - #Pterotype! It's an early precursor to the typewriter, which seemed appropriate for WordPress.

Now I just need to find someone who can draw a cute pterodactyl...

Dear Fedi,
do you have a cool tool to create step by step tutorials inside a website, with little pop-up showing where to click and what to do?

Boosts appreciated

You wake up to a gust of wind. As you look around, your bed is in the middle of a huge plains.

@Purism can i use the Librem Key’s disk encryption capability with other OSes?

“When we shame or violently otherize people in the name of dogma, it becomes a problem.

If we’re not conscious of our dogma, it can become a blind spot that lashes out at you and others from the shadows. When dogma fades into the illusion that it’s ‘just the way things are’, bad things can happen.

Dogma has to be a conscious choice.”
