Today, September 17th, is the birthday of the Linux kernel 0.0.1! Happy birthday, Linux!

I’ve noticed that when I take my mask off, I still talk really loud because I’m so used to having to compensate for the mask.

Well, I tried installing a CPU for the first time today.

...I dropped it and bent pins.

Good news is it was a really old cheap processor. The bad news is I’m planning on building a pc with a $450 CPU in the near future.

Even if they aren’t particularly popular terms in the non-tech industry, I still really like when people refer to “free as in freedom” software as free software, and “free as in cost” software as freeware.

Have I mentioned recently that I despise Facebook?

I've recently got into playing Minetest, and I've been playing on 'play.playminetest.com'. It's been a lot of fun, and I encourage you to join if you're looking for a multiplayer server!
