[Blog] Upgrading OpenBSD with Ansible https://chown.me/blog/upgrading-openbsd-with-ansible.html
Earlier daddy opened a giant can. I thought I was going to eat wet food for like 3 days.
He said it was not for me but I meowed at him to let him know I knew it was for. He showed me a sample and eww it wasn’t smelling good at all!
I looked at the box and it was written chickpeas but I’ve no idea what it means.
Anyway I was so sad and disappointed :(
Instead if follow friday we should have friendship friday.
We just tell friends we like them.
Not for them to gain followers, but so they know you care.
A DM, a follower only toot, just so they know
As people talk about the lottery, please know that poor people know their likelihood of winning is near zero, but so is their likelihood of working their way out of poverty.
my favourite commit to #OpenBSD 6.4 was https://github.com/openbsd/ports/commit/b62aad60b8cf96d33843866e96f5ddedceac8c3f #JustSJWThings
Peertube 1.0 released, but...
Without moderation tools, it's worthless. Seriously. Honestly. It's like when people would slap "Brand XYZ 2000" on stuff back in the 1990's. Version 1.0 is meaningless unless it actually meets consumer needs...
And lacking moderation tools? Yeah, that doesn't meet anyone's needs.

"Shut up and hack" --> sexual assault.
That is how it happens. That is the pathway. "Let code speak for itself" is a gross over-simplification that doesn't take into account safety at events, ability to find mentorship, opportunity for advancement, ability of a community to police itself.
I am trying to think of a project or department where no one has warned me away from a particular interest because of a particular person. I cannot.

y'all i'm sick of this shit
these aren't even "advanced" features. we still can't ban remote users, defederate, report comments, etc etc etc
i still think it's awful planning to wait until /full release/ to add basic features (like moderation), but i guess even that didn't happen
at least hold off instead of releasing something only usable by assholes

I don't think I have told you this story. I do so now, as I remember it told to me, as I was too young to remember for myself.
When I was a kid in the mid-1970s, my father was a preacher. One of the places we were sent to live was a smallish city up the Hudson River a bit from New York City. This is where I became old enough for school, so one of the first things my parents did after moving in was set about enrolling me in kindergarten.
This particular school district was large enough to have two elementary schools in the city - one was about a half mile up the street we lived on, the other about five miles away as I remember it now. I suppose I could check. Call it five miles.
My parents did all the paperwork required to get me enrolled at the school just up the street and took it to the district office. There they met some resistance.
See, we lived next door to the church Dad was preaching at. It was a pretty common arrangement - I lived next door to one church or another for almost twenty years straight. This particular church was in one of the more economically depressed parts of the city.
Many of you have already sussed this story, but I continue.
The problem, my parents were told, with sending me to the school up the street from our house was that wasn't the school where most of the white kids went.
My parents did not see this as a problem and were perfectly happy to have me go to school with our neighbors.
They were then informed that I'd get a worse education at that school; while both schools were funded equally, parents of children at the other school were generally better off financially and donated a lot of things to that other school.
My parents were pretty sure that I'd be okay at the age of five with a sub-par education up the street.
Well, even the nurse's office isn't as well appointed, surely you want your son to be at the safest place possible. We have a bus that can pick him up and drop him off.
My parents ended up insisting I attend the school up the street. Dad took some of his fellow clergy folk on a tour of the two schools shortly thereafter (people get oddly scared of trying to stop groups of people in long flowing robes from going where they'd like, for future reference). I'd love to tell you that they made it all better, but c'mon. They did what they could that day and called bullshit on the institutionalized racism and hatred of that little city. They organized their congregations to get better supplies for the neighborhood school and they preached hellfire and guilt on they who were party to the fuckery. They attended PTA meetings and school board meetings and voted.
And then everyone went back to business as usual.
If you are a white person in the United States you have had an institutional-level advantage since the moment you were born. If you do not see it, you have not gone looking.
Everybody else knows.
If you're not fighting it you're reinforcing it.
Break this cycle. Every day. Stop it.
