Be proud of what you are every day. You are beautiful, you are valid, and most importantly, you are you. Never let anyone take you away from you. ❤

Someone has accidentally inspired me to make an attempt to bring my old OpenPandora back to life. A little bit of glue just might do the trick. 😄

For those who don't know what that is, the OpenPandora is a since-discontinued device conceptualized all the way back in 2007-2008 as an handheld console, running . I actually got mine in 2011, about 8 years ago.

Basically it's the same as any other device conceptually, like e.g. a smartphone or tablet. The main difference is that it has a keyboard and gaming controls built-in. It really had no equivalent back then; everything else either had a weird limited OS or no keyboard or both.

As I said, the OpenPandora was discontinued years ago due to an inability of the manufacturers to continue production. But I'm still excited for its spiritual successor, the Pyra, which is basically the same thing, but better:

In the meantime, I'm going to see what I can do with this old puppy. It may be slow and short on RAM, but it's still the only device at this size I've got my hands on so far with a keyboard and gaming controls built in and hey, no sense wasting a perfectly good device just because it's a little old. 🙂

It's easy to forget, but I massively appreciate that has systems in place to keep bigotry out. 😊 So much better than the wild west environment of certain other social networks.

So, this caught me off guard:

At first I thought spellcheck said "snuck" was wrong because of a regional difference. Not so! It says it's wrong because the past-tense of "sneak" has always been "sneaked" and "snuck" is nonstandard! Go figure. 😆

Sometimes the hardest thing to do with a creation is deciding on a name for it.

I don't debate TERFs for the same reason I don't debate moon-landing deniers, flat-earthers, or young-earth creationists.

It's not because I can't win or because their tactics are dishonest; it's because even agreeing that their position is meaningful enough to debate elevates that position above its merits and gives it credibility in the eyes of onlookers.

There's no value to me in even considering a debate with people who believe in the opposite of reality.

U.S. Politics, some negativity 

I'm really glad to hear that Richard has resigned from the ( Foundation):

fsf.org/news/richard-m-stallma

Brought on by recent disgusting comments made by him that FINALLY made the rounds, after years of similar comments. But Stallman has been causing all sorts of trouble for the community for years and he's largely responsible for the problems I have with the FSF's strategy I wrote about on my website. Maybe, just maybe, this will be the start of a libre software movement that isn't stuck on the sidelines and can make some actual progress.

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.
