Pinned toot

Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).

I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻

I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

I think my mum just emptied out a whole Farmfoods store today. :blobglarenervous:


Maybe y'all consider removing Dilbert & Co entirely from your meme portfolio, resources, anything.
Their author is a pretty much open white supremacist.


Don't fall for the "kneeling cops" thing. I'm seeing multiple reports that immediately after kneeling for the photo, the cops beat the shit out of people.

As the link says, stay away from bridges, underpasses, and tunnels where you can be easily kettled. (I remember a particularly terrifying moment in montreal when I watched the police herd the head of our protest under a bridge. I peeled off as soon as I saw it.)

Alternatively: buy external drives and bust them out of their cases. :blobnervous2:

I could probably get them second-hand but I think I can hear the shrieking at that idea from far away. :blobgrimace:

TFW a 4TB 2.5-inch hard drive costs as much as an 8TB 3.5-inch drive. :blobdizzy:

You would think that drive bay adapters to put 2.5 inch hard drives into a floppy bay would by a lot easier to find. :\

So, found out the hard way that this comp has only too SATA sockets, which is less than ideal. Fortunately, I fished out a PCI SATA card that wasn't in use and it fits. I don't have a small backplate handy, though, but it seems secure enough to do without for the time being.
