#FamilyMan been married for >15 years and have two daughters. Those three girls are my greatest love on this planet.
I consider myself a #GNU Evangelist. Learning about what #FreeSoftware was, including GNU/Linux, opened my eyes to so many things: governments aren’t the only ones stealing individual rights, I know so much less about computers than I thought I did, the idea of code, I can make a difference without having to know anyone particular.
I’m employed as contract Engineer in the Metal industry. My workplace is not yet unionized, but I’m hoping to fix that. #Union member of the #IWW IU440. I don’t have an engineering degree. After discovering Free Software I took my political scientist butt and found a call center job that paid for me to go to Community College to study Software Engineering, where I learned that I liked the idea of coding a lot more than I liked coding. The blessings of God put some great opportunities in my lap at just the right time.
I’m a #Libertarian and have been for over 20 years. The love of libertarianism is what lead me to first to a BS in #political science and later to falling in love with Free Software. These days I lean toward the left side of the libertarian spectrum including being a member of the Libertarian #Socialist Caucus of the Libertarian Party (LSC-LP). Sometimes I call myself a #LibSoc.
I’m a huge #sports fan, but don’t following any particular sport/team super closely. Lately I’ve been getting into #Cricket in addition to my other passions of Professional #Wrestling, Lower Division North American #Soccer, NHL & College #hockey, #baseball #olympics & #rugby (union and #RugbyLeauge). My whole life used to be American #Football, but now-a-days I can’t stand it anymore than I can basketball.
I’m a #BornAgain #Christian, accepting #Jesus as my savior at age 9. Received #Believers Baptism at age 18. Received the baptism of the #HolySpirit as evident in speaking in #tougnes later that year. The #Spirit lead me to the #Catholic #Church at age 20 where I was confirmed at the Easter Vigil. I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ in #recovery from lust. #XA #SA #CR Currently in the very early stages of discernment for joining the #Ecumenical order of #Fransicans (#OEF).
@pancake mind explaining to a normie what this is talking about?
@Stargate38 what’s the Streisand Effect?
@petrescatraian he, like pretty much every politician, is clearly a psychopath too.
@petrescatraian seriously who cares about land? Human life is so much more important. Then again there’s clearly something wrong with someone who desires to have control over another.
@yogthos you must have read a different article than I did
@yogthos why is this article even written? He doesn’t even say anything.
@yogthos national sovereignty is. BS anyway. States are no friend of the working class. The turmoil will continue until we unite as a class against the bosses across imaginary lines used to control peope.
@admin that’s the only thing I edited was removing the carriage return.
Makes me wondering, does lemmy not support editing, like GNU Social (and until v4 mastodon) , or perhaps is it like reddit that it supports editing of posts but not of titles.
@lemmyreader I’ve seen this joke before, but I suspect it was more likely the original as it was stackoverflow which devs actually use. Posting crap like that on Reddit is only for normies who want to pretend they are devs.
@admin did my edit of the OP correct it on your end?
@admin the <br> tag was unexpected. I thought the text before the return would be my title, but it looks like it just included the whole post as the title until it hit the character limit. I just edited my OP so we’ll see if that updates and removes the line break tag.
@admin with the latest Lemmy update you can posts from other fediverse platforms that don’t support Titles, including Mastodon, and it just uses the first line of your toot as the title. I usually post from this same Friendica account which does support titles, but the app I usually use on mobile #AndStatus connects friendica as GNU Social. GS didn’t support titles until recently and the app still doesn’t, so I figured I’d check and see if it worked, and if BeeHaw had updated.
Success on both sides.
@OptimusPrime Interesting. Just one question, why did you feel it belonged in !science
@AgreeableLandscape @Zerush any relation to the non-bianry nightmare Max the Impaler?
@OnishiMyers or we’ll shoot him first, either way.
@Zerush was suitcase thievery a big problem in the 1960s?
@Here4It i honestly think you’ll be happier with GIMP. www.gimp.org/downloads/
@Owell1984 did you see that you no longer need a phone number to create an account?
@Usenobaralinux3 last I checked the piratebay still worked
@_ed in case you are unaware the XFL was owned by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainmnet) and now is owned by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, so “MMA attitude” should be an understatement.
@_ed the both semifinals where better than the final. Regardless I agree that Samo did fantastic this year. I hope getting someone other than the big 3 in the finals is a sign of Rugby Leauge growing across the globe. I still think the American XFLwould/will have been more succesful if they just played Rugby league and called it “Xtreme Football” Leauge is much closer to Gridon football than union and should be easier to sell to a North American audience (not to mention that its the better code anyway).
@yogthos @dRLY Even better I found the original scientific paper they were referencing. THANKS /r/scholar ! transfer.sh/ujBHfV/jacs.2c0909…
@piracy more reasons to self-host, eh?
@yogthos A screenshot of birdsite is not a meme
@SheepWolf gotcha, just banned from purchasing an Oh*o fishing license, that makes sense.
@Zerush @OptimusPrime @science cuz it ain’t their money. It’s usually your money via a publicly funded university
@PP44 @Ephera that has been thought before too. quitter.no
