"“There is a continuous, shocking attempt to ignore or try to destroy the truth of what truly happened that day, and to whitewash the facts into something other than what they unmistakably reveal: An attack on our democracy by violent domestic extremists, and a stain on our history and our moral standing here at home and abroad,” Sergeant Gonell said, wiping away tears as he testified."

Any #BSD devs in Texas looking for new work? Had a meeting today that makes me think we're going to need at least one more person familiar with working on any #BSD, but #FreeBSD in particular.

Also could use someone comfortable with Makefiles, networking, and shell scripts to help with CI and some releng/devops-type work.

Remote positions possible, but it's preferred that you're able to come into the office.

Boosts welcome, let me know if you think it'd be fun and you can join in! 1/2

SCREW YOU OUT OF EVERYTHING.

If the word SCREW had instead read SCREWED, the picture could have been interpreted as either —

SCREWED YOU OUT OF EVERYTHING

— or —

YOU ARE BEYOND SCREWED

— but you made sure that there was probably only one best interpretation.

I’m stepping on holy ground and my feet have yet to light on fire. I guess it’s because we’re all allied in common cause.

Yo , there’s a “Good Trouble” Vigil going down—

8pm Tonight
5710 E R L Thornton Fwy (I-30)

—by St Luke Methodist, near Taqueria Taxco.

It’s all about getting the “For The People Act” and “John Lewis Advancement Act” passed in the wake of so many voter suppression bills coming out of state legislatures in the US South.

Not in Big D? There’s probably a related rally near you: goodtroublevigil.org/attend/

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.
