If you use the athn(4) driver on #OpenBSD please help me with testing a diff: https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-tech&m=154879277019623&w=2
This enables code written by demian@ which should be used but has never been enabled for some reason. Please help me find out why this code was never enabled! Does it break anyone's usage of athn(4)?
If you're a white man in any space, consider helping promote non-white and/or non-men in your respective spaces.
It doesn't have to be (or rather shouldn't) 'Omg look at this amazing woman' , it can just be "this is a cool person doing a cool project" or "this person talks a lot about these important things"
By amplifying their voices you make an actual difference.

PSA for cis men Show more
Because it only ever seems to be cis men... if you interact with someone on here and they stop (or never even START) responding to you or faving your comments, and you keep talking to them for weeks... what are you doing
They were trying to give you an opportunity to get the hint, so they didn't have to block you the way I just blocked someone
If I'm interacting with you back, everything's fine, it's only been a couple guys out of hundreds of people here ❤️

If you’re on mastodon.social you should think about whether you want to be on an instance run by a guy who tried to keep his corporate sponsor secret and is determined to add features that make Mastodon more attractive to advertisers like directories and lists of the most popular and “influential” users and topics and balks at adding reliable privacy controls that could actually limit how much data flows to his instance.
I know it’s hard to move accounts - he’s made it that way
anyway i'd encourage folks to continue to leave mastodon.social for smaller instances
feel free to ask around for recommendations
and also i know it may seem hard to redirect your account and may seem like a "loss" of sorts since you can't export toots
but i promise it's a really good thing to switch instances from such a big one
Mastodon.social now silenced on TTsoc Show more
Here are tabletop.social we really appreciate the moderation coming from mastodon.social, like a lot.
The mastodon project is well funded (masotodon.social instance and the project are not separated) and yet the Mods are not paid properly.
So until we are sure that something is done to get the mods paid a living wage, we will keep them silenced.

You shouldn't add captions/descriptions/alt-texts to your picture because otherwise some people won't boost your awoos.
You should add them because otherwise you're excluding people.
gender, pronouns, infomercial-style shitpost Show more
Are you writing a thing? Do you find yourself using awkward phrases like "his/her", "he or she", or the dreaded "s/he"? Do you want to be inclusive of all genders, and not exclusively address men and/or women? Then boy do I have the word for you!
Just fucking use "they" already.
It's seriously disappointing that it's impossible to read the #FreeBSD Foundation's website without getting tracked by Google, CloudFlare, MaxCDN, and KnightLab. It also presents Google CAPTCHAs as denial of service.
Dear FreeBSD Foundation: Please step up your game in supporting privacy!

Hey OpenBSD users and supporters: I am looking for Compex WLE600VX and Compex WLE900VX and similar devices.
I did take a stab at porting ath10k from Linux about a year ago but that effort got stuck quite early on: http://vcs.in-berlin.de/stsp_athx/timeline
I want to continue working on that project, and I will be getting some help from patrick@ this time.
The one and only ath10k device I had was inside a laptop which got robbed when my flat was burgled in November...
