I'm running a day long workshop at Radical Networks in NYC Oct 18 -- it's about how to run a small social network site for a small community. We're going to be making a (probably temporary) fediverse server for the "community" of our classroom and navigating all the social issues that arise when people with only surface things in common (like "we got tickets for this workshop") try to make an online space for themselves. radicalnetworks.org/participan

I'm getting called "sir" more often now, which is as ab-sird as it sounds

@rick_777 Glad you enjoyed it!

Netrunner is an absolute standout. It's so tense and sharp and risky; I've never felt like I was winning a game of Netrunner until the game-winning click.

@EssDub Aw! Sorry to hear that. I'm under the impression that RAM incompatibility is somewhat common, so hopefully that turned out to be it? Any resolution?

@EssDub Ubuntu was incredibly straightforward out of the box, though I built with nVidia and had to learn things about the state of proprietary vs. open drivers, and then experiment. It was mostly enjoyable though, and the system was solid and usable throughout.

@EssDub Oh, huh! You know, I think the main thing is that it was surprisingly straightforward.

The gotchas people warned me about (installing the CPU in the socket, adding thermal compound) seemed to be smoothed over (retention arms, compound already on the heatsink).

Still, it helped to plan and build steadily. Also, I probably would have benefited from an an anti-static wrist strap―I remembered to discharge my static, but it would have been better to not have that mental overhead.

@EssDub I did this a few years ago and it was such a thrill.

well, my kid is putting ketchup on her box Mac and Cheese so I guess she really is American

whenever I actually watch lobbyists speak at hearings I am reminded to work even harder on encouraging "oh do I really know enough to speak?" experts I know to call up the legislative staffers and ask for an invitation to give oral testimony at these things.
