-Motivational Speaker for a baby

Not everybody was Kung Fu fighting. I was getting beaten up.

I recently had minor surgery to my nose because of some suspect piece of skin. It looks pretty beat-up now but at least I can make jokes like "you should see the other guy".

@milan Hehe, that's understandable. I giggled a bit when I saw the picture myself The text above says: "If you're crashing without seat belt, you're heavier than you think", and that is the illustration.

Hi all! Hm, small introduction. Well, 53, IT nerd, former volunteer firefighter, author of some Linux books, married, 3 daughters and 2 bonus daughters, very proud of them all. Heavily into open source since 1997-ish. Questions? Ask!

@aral Someone's working on an ansible script that would allow one to deploy Mastodon with minimal manual labour just by providing a list of server IPs and some settings like domain name
