Je suis en train de finir ma migration du compte.

Moi, je suis un syndicaliste, un physique devenu modeleur climatique, une polyglotte, un furry et un sympathisant des anarchistes et païens.

J'espère que cet espace-ci sera tous que je voudrais d'une instance mastodon.

I'm currently migrating accounts.

I'm a syndicalist, physicist turned climate modeller, polyglot, furry, and sympathizer of anarchists and pagans.

I hope that this here space will be all that I want from a mastodon instance.

Bonjour tout le monde! Je m'apelle Lucian. Quand j'ai découvert eldritch.cafe j'étais heureux qu'il y ait une instance principalement francophone «pour les personnes queers, féministes et anarchistes ainsi que pour leurs sympathisant·e·s.» Je suis heureuse de vous avoir rencontrés.

Howdy y'all! I'm Lucian. When I found eldritch.cafe I was happy that there was a mostly francophone instance "for queer, feminist and anarchist people as well as their sympathizers." Nice to meet y'all

looking for software development work :boost_requested:​ 

Hey, I am looking for software developer work. I am familiar with C, C++, Java, and many other languages, but I learn quickly, and can probably learn the language you use.

I'm fairly experienced in modeling relational databases, working with Qt, Sqlite, Postgres, and SQL Server, SDL, and SFML. My specialty is Linux but I can target just about any POSIX-compliant platform, or Windows, and I aim to write portable code.

I've worked on Plume, a Fediverse blogging platform, Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead, a roguelike game, sqlite_modern_cpp(a c++ abstraction wrapper for sqlite), MuaLu(A lua based muck engine), and more.

I've dabbled in assembly and lower level coding, and would not be adverse to picking it up to work.

I am based in the US, specifically Tulsa.

I am available for contract work or remote work, though I am currently caring for someone who is disabled so I have to be remote, or at least have minimal office days.

You can get in touch with me via DM or through email through VioletWhite@espeon.social

Quel distro de Linux dois-je considérer pour mon nouveau ordi: Arch ou Manjaro? Je dois installer l'Ubuntu dans une autre partition pour mon travail, mais après ça je peux installer n'importe quel distro que je veux.

Which Linux flavour should I go with for my new PC: Arch or Manjaro? I must install Ubuntu on another partition for work, but after that I can install whatever other flavour I want.

Nightmares of late capitalism 

I love how I am watching a lovely Jim Sterling stream, go to nap for a bit, then wake up after my brain conjures some horrifying idea of "Gacha chicken farming" as an economic model, and how the fuck would that even work? Dreams under late capitalism are a real mindfuck.

o, what a pitiful shame that we are stuck with Javascript as the lingua franca of the web, all of its many dangerous warts and pitfalls an indelible stain on the platform

now to take a big sip of coffee as I ponder the timeless beauty of the Unix way, with its elegant lingua franca, shell scripts

Has anyone else out there on the fediverse ever been a member on the forum site that used to be attached to otherkin.com back in the later half of the 00s? I'm trying to find other people who were posters on that forum site, and I figure the fediverse is as good a place as any to start looking again.

Incoherent nonce thought it was a good idea to jump into my mentions and white Knight for TERFs, complete with r-slur.

#FediBlock

The people who tell other workers "LeArN hOw To CoDe" are the same people who are currently complaining non-stop about having to teach and monitor the learning of their own children.

It's almost like we need other jobs besides tech workers circlejerking each other all day. Almost.

still so good

meta 

For a lot of people who joined Mastodon after 2018, I wonder if the closure of snouts.online will be their reference point for what happens when an instance collapses.

meta 

You can tell a lot about when a user was active on Mastodon by which instance shutting down is their reference point for an instance shutting down. For me, I always refer back to the closing of witches.town since that was not only the first instance shut-down I noticed, but also the first one that actually made me migrate instances because I was on there.

aux temps de covid (--) 

Avant que je me lève ce matin j'ai eu un cauchemar d'un autre ami est mort au cause du pandémie. J'ai arrêté mon travail et je pleurais et je hurlais. Je déteste ces cauchemars.

Technical Question 

So I'm currently back building my once-in-six-years PC, and I noticed that my motherboard has something called an SPI_TPM header. I understand this lets you plug in a security module. Would there be value in me seeking out one of these modules, and if any of y'all use them can y'all tell me y'all's experiences with them?

Question technique 

Je suis en train de construire un nouveau PC depuis six ans de construire mon première PC. J'ai lu qu'il y a sur ma carte mère quelque chose qui s'appelle un connecteur SPI_TPM. Je comprends qu'on peut connecter un système de sécurité TPM ici. C'est utile d'avoir un système de sécurité TPM moi-même? Si tu avais de l’expérience avec ces systèmes pourrais-tu raconter tes expériences avec ceux?

I'm proposing a new flag for the queer community!!!

The blue is for men and mascness
The white is for non-binary people and androgyny
The red is for women and femness

thougts?
