i was thinking about a short bio/intro i can give when i'm presenting at an . i usually go with something like "gonzo engineer, hacker, parent, and slacker" but someone asked why i don't use the word "healer" because i've been trained as a practitioner.

i was attuned twice to use reiki to take care of my family and friends, i don't have a _practice_, nor _clients_. if i got the third and final attunement and the title that conveys, maybe then?

i've deleted a toot where i excitedly told the internet i finally got my because i was so excited that i called it a "steakDeck" and i didn't want to excite anyone for no reason.

I'm using a packaged version of for called ""; it's a high-performance experience to a Sony 4/5 from Steam Deck, but my and challenge for a PIN because parenting, so currently I'm launching it to a dialog box as a workaround, but the maintainer of this fork has written some detail about the issue and workarounds here:


I can't seem to find a way to follow a handle on truth*social from my mastodon instance. I would like to keep apprised of wingnuts without having to create an account. yes it's something stupid.

I've been playing a lot of lately on , but my kids are hogging the good sound system in the family room with which is pretty great but without split screen I'll be buying at least one other copy of the game for my Switch so the two of them can team up. I strongly discourage competitive vs play modes on games because my kids and cousins get pretty mad at each other unless it's co-op!

some really bug changes in the latest insider build. native context menus and tabs are the first things you'll notice, updating plug-ins like Andy's Sliding Panes will probably help you adjust if you have been using it (it's one of the most popular plugins!) but reading this post is strongly recommended.

I just received non-delivery error from someone sending email spoofing the “from” address as the user name of a user on infosec.exchange (congrats, @maxeddy )

The spam victim has a Barracuda email security appliance that completely ignores spf/dmarc/dkim and is unaware that that recipient address doesn’t exist, leading to this blow-back.

A master class in how not to configure your email flow.

but seriously fire up your iCloud cache and start updating shit there is actual circulating. haven't even had a chance to check on IOCs being shared because i've got a couple of Apple households and my is getting all the reboots today 😂

"we were raised to see life as fun," the new app for is great! (i am a but not involved with this product)

finally got the hang of the envo; wouldn't like flying without it.

one of my kids is really going through something hard and it's really worrying me and i just wanted to send this thought out into the internet to stay for a little while so i can finish packing. 🧳

one of my favorite things about my office in is the installation in the lobby. an amazing thing to start and end the days with.

Statement on “Join The Fedi” jointhefedi.com is a website owned by known “gender critical” activist Alex Gleason. The domain name and SEO is clearly designed to appeal to individuals curious about the fediverse, and potentially take traffic from joinmastodon.org. Unfortunately, Gleason does not have the best intentions when it comes to helping the fediverse grow. Gleason formerly contributed to other fediverse projects, before being removed from doing so due both his behavior and poor code quality. This is a problematic individual, recommending problematic services.

Join The Fedi has an explicitly right-wing agenda and seems to only promote instances which either a) run the “Soapbox” front-end software created by Gleason himself or b) advertise themselves as “free speech” instances. As of right now, the site actively recommends the following instances:

poa.st (blocked by Howlr for harassment)
Spinster.xyz (blocked by Howlr for transphobia)
Shitposter.club (blocked by Howlr for harassment)
Gleasonator.com (blocked by Howlr for transphobia)
Freespeechextremist.com (blocked by Howlr for hate speech)

In other words, Gleason is using the site to promote his own agenda rather than simply gain more users into the fediverse. This is not a site that should be recommended to new users. I would recommend using https://joinfediverse.wiki/ instead!

Thank you!

> “When we think about the United States, we make the essential error of imagining it as a single nation, a marbled mix of Red and Blue people,” Podhorzer writes. “But in truth, we have never been one nation. We are more like a federated republic of two nations: Blue Nation and Red Nation. This is not a metaphor; it is a geographic and historical reality.”
