Pinned toot

A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.

I've admired Linux over the years & have moved my main box over.

My distros:
Desktop: MX Linux 18
Laptop: MX Linux 18
Old Laptop: Bodhi 5

Previously bewitched by OpenSUSE, Peppermint, Porteus, Lubuntu, Linux Lite.

Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable computing all figure into my love for Linux.

Pinned toot

is in my blood

I enjoy playful flirtations with my imagination, inspired by gaming. The emotional adventures that can be had.

I enthuse, I write, I podcast, and champion the niche in almost all forms of entertainment.

I prefer communities that support consideration & mutual respect, maturity & passionate discussion.

I'm a Dad & a Kid (at heart).

Games, even at their most basic, can unlock realms of excitement and untold adventure.. bring it on..

Game On!

Hi! Sorry for the spam or prpject has caused you! :blobpatpat:​:

We picked #WeAreNameless due to a scene of the movie Hackers where Cereal said "Orwell's here and living large. We have no names, man. No names. We are nameless!" ->

We decided to use an hashtag precisely so people who would potentially be upset by it during movie sessions could mute/block it with filters.

For more context please read: or check out (WIP) information hub: @wearenameless

Thank you for your patience! C_H:​ :WeAreNameless:

And this was particularly cool:

The film's press kit was accompanied by a floppy disk containing a custom program explaining the movie. Parts of the program were quasi-encrypted, requiring the user to enter an easily guessable password to proceed.

The Internet Archive has it available to play in your browser!

and I quote its blurb..

"Travelling around the world, he'll have to walk across hardware graveyards, deal with digital archeology, tribes of cryptoshamans, and virtual reality debauchery."

Everything about it has me lathered up, salivating and expectant.
