if you're new and worried about your follower numbers, don't! mastodon is more about the community and having fun with your friends. you can drop the toxic thought process where you viewed yourself as a brand on Twitter.
Use your local and federated timelines! Talk to people if something catches your eye! Don't gamify the experience here, be considerate. Think about being part of the local & federated community instead of figuring out how to go viral. Mastodon is super fun without those habits.
Unix will give you enough rope to shoot yourself in the foot. If you didn’t think rope would do that, you should have read the man page.
Sysadmin reminder: 11 october is the #DNS root key rollover. Brace yourself and check *today* that the DNS resolver you manage knows both keys, 19036 (the old) and 20326 (the new) https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/ksk-rollover-expect-22aug18-en.pdf #DNSSEC
The birth of #Linux
27 years ago.
On August 25 1991 Linus Torvalds wrote to comp.os.minix:
"I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones."
"won't be big" he said. 😃
Happy birthday, Linux, and congratulations to Mr. Torvalds.
RT @Devilish_Design: Ok, it's taken most of the week, isn't pretty and I want my Kitchen table back but It Works!! Microsoft BASIC 1.0 loaded in from paper tape 😀 Still got a little work to do, only seeing half the RAM but that should be an easy fix. https://t.co/yWIP4NbIJS

Vet: You'll need to give him half of one of these tablets each day. They're quite small, it can be tricky ...
Me: It's OK, I know how to break a pill in half thank you. Can you direct me to the nearest nightclub toilet cubicle?
Sometimes I take solace in the software giants (?) that came and went. Nothing is forever. This too shall pass. dBase. WordStar. WordPerfect. Borland. Lotus 1-2-3. DOS. Sun. Nokia. Palm. Too see the struggle, to be the struggle, and to let go. It doesn’t matter if their ideas were good or bad. Capitalism churns on.
Q: What do you give the person who's got everything? A: Antibiotics.
