Saluton! My name is Flip, I slap a keyboard until interesting things happen

I am learning Esperanto (for only about a year now), I play and DM tabletop roleplaying games, I'm the good kind of anarchist, I fiddle with old hardware, and I dream of retiring as a cactus farmer

I'm becoming more convinced that regardless where you go, the majority of people will be amplifying the mundane, self-satisfying detritus of the obnoxiously mediocre

If you have ideas to make the flowing water better, let me know! Please!

Someone's a regular Linus Torvalds just without the talent or vision

FOX-2 really sounds like a news station. Should have anticipated that before naming my desktop FOX-1

After about an hour of keyboard repair, I started getting the PBP to a workable state

Pinebook Pro seems to have disintegrated in the post... everything seems fine except like twenty keys came off the keyboard and a few of them seem entirely broken

Taking some time to work on a personal project... instead of writing *code* I've just been writing *types* and it's going pretty great so far

But I do have my suspicions. And those suspicions amount to fuck the bourgeoisie

I don’t understand how some people make it to adulthood and still don’t preface things with “I think”, “Perhaps”, and “In my experience”
