Free GNU/Linux help to 603 locals! Just call my number; leave a voicemail if I don't pick up.
Various things about me
- I am non-binary and transfeminine. (they/them, she/her)
- I care deeply about animals, the natural world, and how we fit into it.
- I am very passionate about libre (free and open source!) software, so I'm starting a GNU/Linux User Group in Manchester, NH. Please shoot me an email or call if you would like to be involved!
Technological things which excite me
- The possibilities emerging in the world of mobile devices. I think the potential of the devices are still mostly untapped.
- USB. Yes, USB. The USB standards are very capable and underappreciated, and that's why I love them. I love that I can buy a keyboard now with USB, plug it into my phone with USB OTG, and then turn around and plug it into a computer with Windows 98SE on it! Talk about longevity! (Did you know that a computer with a single USB port can technically support up to 127 devices using USB hubs?)
How I do my computing
- My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 15-7577. i7-7700HQ/16GBDDR4. I do not recommend it, but in regards to computing power I think you would be hard pressed to throw something at it that it cannot handle. I think I will be using it in a decade.
- I use Lubuntu 18.10, with kernel 5.02. I pretty much live within my browser and terminal emulator.
- I use vim for editing code. It's probably not most efficient way but humans are not purely efficient beings. I just like it.
- My phone is a Moto G6, and it desperately needs to be rooted. Down with locked down phone OSs with no security updates after two years!
- My cloud of choice is Azure
- My favorite distro of Linux is Puppy Linux due to the way it fuses a minimal, portable OS with usability, but the bugginess of the distribution continues to disappoint me versus its potential.
About the website
- The website should look as good in a modern browser as it does in a 1998 browser, or w3m. I often try to open this website in w3m as a quick way to tell if DNS is working.
- Since this is something some would be upset by: you are expressly permitted to portscan this server.
- If you are someone I would trust and want a shell account on this server shoot me an email. There will be a git repository of this website on github sooner or later.
