What's a pirate's favourite letter? Show more
A letter of marque, probably. It was "a government license in the Age of Sail that authorized a private person, known as a privateer or corsair, to attack and capture vessels of a nation at war with the issuer" (Wikipedia). While privateering was legal and piracy was not, in reality the line between a pirate and a privateer was thin at best.
Going though my Computer History Museum photos and I found the original copy of this 1971 Telnet system diagram from RFC 158. Now you can compare the charming pencil on lined notebook paper to the official scanned version that's been the only one available for decades.
I love this stuff, it reminds me that the internet was invented by humans jotting things down on whatever paper was at hand and not godlike programmers planning everything exquisitely.
do you or someone you know have experience / expertise in any of the following: Linux 3.10 + 4.9 kernels on MIPS64, cross compiling linux kernel and userland, Cavium Octeon SDK?
I have needs!
...and (US/western Europe market rates) money! to give this person or persons, so that they may continue to survive in this oppressive capitalist system.
boosts appreciated. please DM me here. I don't care where you are situated in the world, personally.
Would anyone be interested in a sewing blog focused on sewing for trans women?
Stuff like copying patterns from clothing that already fits you well so that you can feminize them. Clothing modification. Making your own femme underwear that'll fit your hips and genital configuration. That sort of thing.
I'm not an amazing seamstress, but I'm finding sewing to be a very affirming way of approaching the process of replacing my clothes.
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
I'm running a day long workshop at Radical Networks in NYC Oct 18 -- it's about how to run a small social network site for a small community. We're going to be making a (probably temporary) fediverse server for the "community" of our classroom and navigating all the social issues that arise when people with only surface things in common (like "we got tickets for this workshop") try to make an online space for themselves. https://radicalnetworks.org/participants/darius-kazemi/
