I believe are in order. My name is Tom, my pronouns are he/him/his. I've been a Linux person since the late 90s. I've been a Sci-Fi reader since I could choose my own books. I've been a Sci-Fi watcher for even longer. I'm married and we have two kids. I'm in the US (North Carolina), I'm a liberal and I talk politics under a CW. Given the instance, I should mention my family watched TNG growing up and I really liked catching TAS when it was on.

Gaming recs?

Anyone have a preferred firefox extension to see if they're connecting somewhere via or not? I grabbed IPvFoo just now to finally try and keep an eye on that again.

Happy April fool's! I am a grump about most pranks, but 2 years ago my wife pulled this prank on our giant dog, and it's still the funniest thing ever

We got him a cat bed and he even tried to lay in it 😂
Afterward he was awarded with his actual new bed which was actually made for large dogs

I'm a master of April Fool's pranks. I wrote an entire, real book an a 40-year-old text editor as a prank.

This year's prank was my biggest one. Spent literally thousands of dollars on it (mwl.io/archives/6003). And I cancelled it. 2020 is not the year.

At least this physicist is mostly harmless, and isn't killing people with nonsense like Paul Davies.

I can now sell #savagedbysystemd in print direct.

Pondering pricing it at $9.99, $1 over standard, because you're soiling my lovely web site with such tripe. :flan_posh:
