Hi, I'm Andinus.
Story time! Here's how offline internet can help people that are technically "online"👇 (a #Thread)
Happy birthday, Debian.
So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?
If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.
That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.
Today is Sysadmin Appreciation Day. I'm a sysadmin, but even sysadmins have sysadmins !
So thanks to @ben and @gbmor and the other tildeverse admins. To @phessler for maintainig this instance. To the devs at OpenBSD that maintain the mailing lists, cvs and the rest of the infrastructure we use. And to all the other admins out there who keep all the services we like in good shape. Show them some love !

> Most of you are familiar with the virtues of a programmer. There are three, of course: laziness, impatience, and hubris.
> These are virtues of passion. They are not, however, virtues of community. The virtues of community sound like their opposites: diligence, patience, and humility.
> They're not really opposites, because you can do them all at the same time.… These are the virtues that will carry our community into the future, if we do not abandon them.

Because it's a skill that's missing in our society, here's how to apologize.
1) Acknowledge harm. "I f'd up." 2) State what you did that was wrong, in a way that shows you understand the harm done.
3) Express regret
4) Say what you're going to change to not cause this harm again
Don't ask the hurt person for *anything.* It's up to them to accept or not, if they choose.
Don't be clever. Be plain & simple.
Thanks @pamela, tilde.zone just got flans!
