It's amazing how fast you can get back up to speed on something when you have an internet and search engines and emulators to test things in.
Having to reboot your development environment to try something out was a real pain in the 80s. You kids don't know how good you've got it ...
I'd like to point out here that if you're not familiar with the restrictions of the #C64 that stripe across the middle probably doesn't look like much of an achievement. Trust me, it's cool.
As for me, I'm running this because communication technology interests me and I've been chatting to people around the world using 1s and 0s since about 1989.
I'm a professional #sysadmin. I've been working in the field for nearly 25 years and I've been reasonably competent at it for about 10.
I'm a big fan of the old SAGE code of #ethics and operate by it all the time when working, including my hobby projects like this one: https://www.usenix.org/system-administrators-code-ethics
I hope we can all make some new friends here!
Hey, I just wanted to say a quick #welcome to the recent Chinwag arrivals!
Chinwag's reason for existing is to provide communication tools for people, which is something I've always been interested in. I kind of target #Australian users, but welcome anyone from anywhere.
Please read our rules: https://social.chinwag.org/about/more
There's a basic guide to using Chinwag Social here: https://chinwag.im/social/
If you have any questions or concerns hit me up!
I guess a new #introduction post is in order!
I'm Mike, I run lots of little services on the big, bad internet and they're mostly centered around #communication, which I find is a pretty neat area.
Attached is a picture of my first ever #TV appearance.
Came across our #snail while he was licking the glass.
I'm a futurist specializing in education and technology.
I've been using all kinds of social software for decades, and really want to get Mastodon working this time.
Damn there's some ludicrously cheap #arduino addons and stuff out there and it keeps giving me ideas.

I would *highly* recommend watching this version of Metropolis, it's based on the 2010 version with an all-new score:
The 2010 version is the one to go for if you can, as it's almost exactly what Lang released originally. A lot of plot points make more sense with the restored scenes. (There's still a couple of very brief scenes missing, but the captions cover them adequately.)
Well I guess I'm done #gardening for today.
