@kev dude! You are famous (-ish). There is a trending article on Hacker news that mentions your article about mastodon. Pretty good article too.


it was emotional, but isn't that the whole point

Used to be intolerant of people's flaws, and I used to be harsh in my judgement of them.

Now, I'm more willing to accept that sometimes people are allowed to make mistakes and have bad days. That does not necessarily make them bad people.

It's a nice feeling when you've written something, even though it is a few tiny paragraphs.

It's sad that most of what we write (and read) is not creative, but insipid and uninspiring prose.

Making efforts to work my way up to maybe even writing a new post on my. website someday.

I found a great thread on the birdsite which was about how the various states were formed after India's independence.

We should be writing more threads here. Expert-level knowledge is not necessary. It could be as simple as "Cafés to visit when in Pune" or "How I am learning to play music".

This is one way we can add useful, informative content, that can be easily shared across platforms.

Some time ago, I stubbed my little toe at home. It swelled up immediately. After a few days, when the pain reduced, I thought it would heal gradually and didn't think much of it.

In time, the pain became negligible, but the swelling would just not subside. With some encouragement from my parents, I decided to get a much needed X-ray which confirmed that it was a fracture.

Now that it is immobilized in a splint, it has a much better chance of healing.

For years I run firewalls using #OpenBSD pf(4). Today I've configured iptables on a Linux system:
- all packets are accepted by default
- install additional software to store firewall rules
- install additional software to get something like tables in pf(4)
- write some of the scripts yourself to get the rules stored and loaded automatically during shutdown / boot
What a crap! :flan_shout:

Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.

If you're mad about something? Use a content warning.

If you want to write a long post? Use a content warning.

Don't share screenshots of toots that make you mad, and don't follow people that make you mad.

You've left the swirling fire vortex of rage birdsite created to keep investors and advertisers happy. Live free! Live well 👍
