My first computer was an Apple IIe and it seemed elaborate but not unknowable.

Anyone just starting now is stepping into a complicated world.

Even a technologically conservative operating system like NetBSD (they still use CVS!) is extraordinarily sophisticated.

it's been a while since I installed NetBSD

I remember a time when I would try to get my scroll wheel to work in X…

to just install the OS, install firefox, go on youtube and have everything work still feels really magical

wow I started reading about iptables and an hour went by really quickly

The resale prices on Wranglers are unbelievable to me.

…I remember once showing a film, maybe it was in a documentary class or something. It got over, and then they said, “Who is going to see the James Bond tonight?”

For them it is the dream of success — that’s very strong everywhere, the aim of success. Sometimes I feel that the students aren’t interested enough in what cinema is, what you’re doing with the film.

Like a year ago or something like that I looked into #scuttlebutt #ssb and thought it was a very cool protocol. I tested #patchwork and #manyverse, liked patchwork but manyverse was very very slow and not working most of the time (even after many hours).
All of these problems are probably going to be solved in the future, but I have one more important question, regarding #pubServers:
Is there a use case where ssb works like a traditional #socialNetwork without the use of pubs?
