I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!

(Has someone already done a filk like this on Masto? I'd be surprised if not.)

Take that, yet-another-device-without-mounting-holes!!

...but seriously -- why do so many small devices not have any kind of mounting holes?? We don't all have acres of desk space just aching to be filled up, ya know.

Some of us don't have desk space, period. Possibly due to lack of desk.

Someone on G+ shared this:

It's kind of the or of the Fediverse, from what I can tell, but maybe a bit more informative.
