I love weeks where reading docs and bettering myself counts as productivity just as much as writing code.

“Mookie why do you still buy movies on physical media?” This is a good reason why. I won’t switch to digital for movies until digital movies are free from DRM, can be downloaded and are of the same quality as the physical media version.

Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of #article13, the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.

We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against #article13 to protect the future of the internet!

My wife made me kill the absolute huge spider in the server room. And here I wanted to be able declare that we had a web server.

To be clear. The storage drives were fine. But one of the boot drives started failing... it failed over to the other boot drive, but for some reason I thought I could just pull the old one out. Now it won't reboot, maybe everything is fine.

Can't wait to get the GPU in today so I can find out what else is broken on my NAS. (Glad I hadn't started putting data on it yet)

Feeling like I'm winning with tech this week. 

Between the fact that my Bluetooth dongle in linux Just Works™, KDE Connect working great (once I've muted most of the notifications), and just in general having computing going smoothly.

I paid for overnight shipping on a bluetooth device, and I'm suddenly realizing I have no idea where my bluetooth dongle is.

Party happening a block or two away. Can hear it from here. Cops said they drove by but didn't hear anything. Im super impressed.

Holy cow. That was some of the craziest competition I've ever seen.

My mom is begrudgingly watching The International grand finals, but she's making predictions now, so I think she's having fun.

Just saw a truck full of Tesla model 3s at the same time one was passing in the opposite direction.

Watching Back to the Future. Because a friend somehow has never seen it.

I find that the last hour or so before a vacation is when I'm most productive...
