“[Stallman] has sincere regrets, especially at how anger toward him personally has negatively impacted the reputation and mission of FSF.”

His most noteworthy “regret” is about others’ anger? He’s learned *nothing*.

“I’m sorry you got upset” is not an apology. What a joke. This statement is simultaneously trash and also super clarifying about what the FSF stands for and what —and who— they value.

Anyone (preferably in the PDX area) have a way to read QIC-80 tapes?

Just over a week left for students to apply to Google Summer of Code. Plan 9 is in there, and ~200 other good orgs. Go apply, and tell students you know.

Let's make a colour together! <3


@tootapp Take a look at the poll numbers in the first screenshot. They’re fine when I click through.

It's today. A few years ago, a trans friend helped me understand that "visibility" isn't always positive (or safe), and things like this are complicated.

It you're trans and out, that's awesome. If you're trans and not out, though, you're still just as valuable and worthwhile.

Be well and take care of each other. 🏳️‍⚧️

The PlayStation store is apparently shutting down on PlayStation 3. I have one that I bought used from Goodwill for $12 just to play Journey. Any other games along those lines I should check out before I no longer can?

Current best theory, which tracks with what I saw: a Space X rocket botched re-entry.

Uh, Oregon friends, anyone see that? Crazy firebally thing in the sky to the north, followed by explosion sounds a minute later?

@tootapp Got this error the other day in a notification. When I clicked it, it took me to a new follower. Looks like the actual content was working properly, just something about the notification display was botched. Everything since has been fine.

Bell Labs has transferred ownership of Plan 9 to the Plan 9 Foundation.

The Plan 9 Foundation has immediately re-released 1st through 4th Editions under the MIT license.

I am really, really excited about this.

Me: “Sorry, baby, that kind of pencil only works on the iPad.”

Celeste: “Oh yeah? What do you know, smart guy?”

I know I'm like a year+ late on this, but Sayonara Wild Hearts is really good.

As dumb as Daylight Savings Time is at baseline (which is pretty dumb), it is ten times dumber with a toddler.
