Howdy Mastodon!

Engineer working for Previously I worked on Ubuntu Phone and doing multimedia/TV, almost all consumer electronics.

An Open Source advocate and Ubuntu member. Was a co-founder for Inkscape and now serve on its board.

I think that one mistake I made with my Twitter account was making it all technical, expect this to have more politics and other stuff.

Got out my first Dell XPS13 Developer Edition with Ubuntu.

Surprised at how dated it looks now.

Setup an over-the-air TV antenna at my house and the receiver I have will also decode clear QAM. So I hooked it up to my cable modem input to see if there were any stations being sent.

For the most part it was what you'd expect, mostly promotional stations and a couple religious networks.

One of the channels was a login for a Fedora 10 box. Fedora 10. That's a halloween scare for ya.

For the first time I've clicked on the "Follow My Delivery" feature of UPS.

I have to say it's more frustrating than just waiting. The driver keeps going to other people's houses. And then other neighborhoods. And other businesses. And... this is not the easiest way to get to my house!

Identity Thieves that *copy* data from Surveillance companies are doing this same thing as those companies - using data of our lives against us without our input or control.

We should have control over our data.

This is a political issue.

Technology has only and will only continue to allow this surveillance at massive scale.

Vote, run for office, conduct civil disobedience (if you’re willing to face the consequences), call your representatives and hold them accountable.


Not saying this is the only reason I like new people coming to WoFLFri at, but it is a good reason. —

Thunder is caused by air moving quickly form a high pressure region to a low pressure one.

Basically, thunder is God farting.

Thinking about making a "sexy home office worker" costume for Halloween.

It'll be a t-shirt, flannel pants and coffee mug that say "I'm Sexy" on them.

We now have a website at Axiom!

I can spend less time trying to explain what we do and more time giving people a URL. Now, just to finish all those features...

We love going as a family to see the pumpkins at the Arboretum every October. Here are some fun educational things to do with pumpkins (and other squash). —

"When politicians talk of cutting funding to the National Institutes of Health and other funders of basic research, they are not 'draining the swamp' but strangling the goose that lays the golden egg." —

I thought the Southeast Linux Fest, (SELF) had published their 2019 dates somewhere, but I can't seem to find them and their site is down.

Does anyone know when SELF is planned for 2019?

Kinda weird, a Kickstarter that I assumed was dead posted a video update on how they want to power cars this week.

Original Kickstarter:

Amazon taking advantage of over-the-air broadcast is a great idea. I've always been surprised that TiVo seemed to be the only one pushing it as broadcast is the live TV most people care about. —

Reminds me how a friend who worked on Climate Change policy talk about rich nations being able to adapt to the effects while the devastation would largely occur in the developing world. —

For Texans, here is a breakdown of what districts you're in based on your address and who is running for what in those districts. —
