        For those keeping track, my next home will be St. Paul, MN. I am beyond thrilled to spend autumn in such a beautiful area!

          @johngordon huh. Funny, given most people at the fair walk aimlessly around ruminating. And nobody seems to care.

              I bought a Raspberry Pi a couple weeks ago. It’s the cutest server I’ve ever seen and I’ve been learning plenty about system administration that I never would have tried with a more expensive machine. It’s low stakes if I mess up a system file.

                  @abourque I am a big advocate for plain language and for doing right by our end users. This kinda infuriates that part of me. It’s the cruel side of #UX, the one where people realize they can make money off helping people who are confused.

                      @jeffmueller The secret behind Starfleet is that their entire yearly budget came from mining Bitcoin on the ship computers during idle time.

                          @johngordon doesn’t this author know you can’t convince someone not to push a bean up their nose? You can try to emphasize the dangers, sure, but that just encourages the little snot.

                            If you want more people to have something, then make it easier to obtain.

                                  @matigo and that’s why PeopleSoft installations in higher ed feel like such a shoehorn. Case in point: want to register for courses? Add them to your shopping cart. @rabryst
