Every one of you is precious and wonderful and unique and necessary and deserving of life and love and peace.

Anything your brain does to try to convince you otherwise is a mean trick.

Please try to remember this. Remember it unceasingly.

The FidoNet chapter from BBS: The Documentary (2004) is I think required viewing for fediverse admins.

Bulletin board services (BBSes) were pre-web online communities with forums, mail, games, etc. FidoNet was/is basically a volunteer-run federation layer that let BBSes communicate with each other.

The video talks about FidoNet's growing pains, especially around governance & a mismatch between what users wanted and what the sysops felt was required to maintain the net.

@djsundog A tool lending library is always a nice addition, but I don't see them that frequently for whatever reason.

@djsundog As an apartment dweller, I break down my cardboard for recycling and occasionally invite people who live on my floor over for drinks.

It doesn't take much!

just raked all the leaves out of the storm drain three houses down so the moat in the intersection will drain.

remember, folks, nice places to live don't need more governance, just more folk with a rake (or other appropriate tool for the task at hand) and a willingness to use it for the common good.

Ahhh, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means #jazz

This week I'm distracted by some code I need to extricate from my brain, so I am once again invoking the power of the patron of the season, Saint Vince, to carry me through.

We will not be free, nor shall the earth be healed, until we have rejected and eradicated the threefold tyranny of church, state, and capital.

Clearout prices on 250 watt ashley stereo amplifiers. I... miscalculated. Holy... ogod. About to pick up another load of at least this many from a movie theater. Not enough shelves to store them all. $50+shipping.
