With all these new followers, it's time for a proper reintroduction.
My name is Alex, I live in Seattle, and I am Product Support Specialist in the NetSec sector.
On Mastodon you'll generally find me talking about music, retrocomputing, demoscene, and leftist politics.
I've been on Mastodon for a couple of years now, but it hasn't been my main home until now.
Looking forward to a new chapter here on the Fediverse with all of you!
there are #QR #code #posters here in #Melbourne for #reporting #graffiti to the #council - and #someone has been #printing their own and #carefully #placing them over the #official ones
they lead to a #documentary on #hiphop/graffiti #culture
it's perfect #because the QR posters are #uglier than any bit of #street #art
If Newsmax wanted to be on DirecTV, they wouldn’t have asked for carriage fees. Point of matter.
The best part about working from home is access to my kitchen.
I'm pretty proud of my ability to cook, and I live right by a grocery story, so rather than hit a local restaurant with coworkers like I used to, I can just make a quick shopping trip, throw together a recipe, and have a high-quality meal for pennies on the dollar from my old pre-2020 habits.
There are good restaurants in my neighborhood too, but it's nice to keep leveling up my culinary skills!
Curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to investigate .eth domains.
Not interested in actually using them, or owning one, just wanted to see how they work.
Conclusion: They don't actually work. You either need a special browser, or a browser extension, and they redirect you elsewhere on the actual web.
Literally no way to actually host anything at those domains. Nothing after the '/' will ever do anything.
Web3 is such a joke. I can't believe anyone actually takes it seriously.
Apparently people don't just like emulated calculators in the browser - they love it, and want more.
So come enjoy the CALCULATOR DRAWER, a dozen plus emulated calculators and (where I could find them) the manuals. Get calculating!
RE-PC, a used electronics shop in #Seattle, uses inventory bins from Incredible Universe for parts management.
Incredible Universe went out of business 26 years ago!
I have vague memories of visiting one in Atlanta when I was a kid.
"Pro-life" is a Republican lie.
Republicans are pro-death penalty.
Republicans are against child vaccination.
Republicans took away the child tax credit.
Republicans oppose school lunches.
Republicans oppose maternal health care like pre-natal vitamins.
Republicans oppose adequately funded foster care.
Republicans oppose the agency and autonomy of women.
