I'm giving an hour-long talk for the NCSU Linux User Group tomorrow; it's about computers. And the server architecture around this website; if that sounds interesting please come check it out.

Date: 11/07
Place: Engineering Building 2, Room 3001
Time: 7PM

I am keeping the talk accessible because I want everyone to know how fun it is to do something like this!
Hope to see you there

Wow, I didn't expect so many people to come out; it was a lot of fun, thanks for coming out and listening.
The LUG is having a dinner meeting this coming week... you should be able to sign up for the LUG **mailing** **list** here:

>What if I don't use Linux
It's more about open-source community than Linux imo; if you liked today's thing then you should come grab dinner with us sometime!
>would Linux help me run emulators and watch animu?
yes and yes
iirc there's a few people in the club who don't use Linux anyway, that's why it's more about the community; we had a talk two weeks ago on flashing custom android firmware, so it's really more about software and hardware and enjoying the Information Age than about what OS you use~
>> No.9027  
Was well done. Good job Yumi-kun!
Where'd you get that shirt btw?
What if I don't use Linux? Also, would Linux help me run emulators and watch animu?
Oh okay, that sounds really fun. I've flashed CFW on consoles before, does that count?
Maybe I will start running Linux, but all I know about it is two of my friends got ubuntu in middle school and started using Opera for some reason.
I only have one [spoiler]6 year old[/spoiler] laptop atm, so multiple machines won't be doable
I wanna make me a desktop just in case Lokasenna-chan decides to crap out on me when I have projects due. Fingers crossed for a writing competition I entered with a cash prize. [spoiler]:3[/spoiler]
Arigato gozaimasu! Short fiction. My story is very... (post)modern, so I doubt I'll win, considering the judges. It's also vulgar, &c.
Ideas are very hard, and in short fiction they're the bread-and-butter. I'm a bit of a day-dreamer though, so I've got a few. My problem is writing out the "aboutness" or story-stuff. I really just like playing with themes and ideas. So, it kind of helps that experience isn't really critical.
If they win, I'll share them. One entry is biblical fan-fiction (very blasphemous) and the other is well... a disorienting tale about a disoriented man.
Well, I'll see you next Wednesday, Yumi-kun. Thank you for the protips! Oyasumi~!

>flashed CFW on consoles
that's in the same spirit. you can maybe find a little computer to run Linux on; using it on a daily basis can be [spoiler]frustrating, especially if the machine you're depending on breaks[/spoiler] but with a little practice I think you could pull it off
Anyway just start off small if you're up for a little fun; [spoiler]I can help out if you'd like, if only because you called me Yumi-kun <3[/spoiler]
desktops aren't too expensive, especially if you buy the old all-in-ones that are tossed out of offices; good luck on the competiton!
What kind of composition was it?
Short fiction is cool; coming up with ideas to frame as stories is really hard for me because I never know what to write about outside my own experience.
awesome awesome awesome
look forward to reading them :3

The Short Fiction Contest Committee or w/e already put up their finalists (https://english.chass.ncsu.edu/creativewriting/story_contest.php)
I am not one of them TT^TT
Apparently blasphemous, post-modern, hallucinatory, and outright bawdy tales (within tales) do not appeal to realist/modernist writers and 19th century specialists. Who woulda guessed?
No, it's not possible that I'm a shitty writer--it has to be a difference in tastes.

I hope to see you all there,

We have 4 lightning talks scheduled this week:

  1. Setting up nginx and Let's Encrypt
  2. Porting games
  3. Taskwarrior / Timewarrior
  4. Software licensing

Should be fun! There might be just one more meeting for the rest of the term, I think...

Like, nerds in the south may have fond memories of fried catfish they caught themselves, homemade cornbread, college football, outdoorsy hobbies, guns, and all sorts of normie stuff...
But then they turn around and say "Misato is best girl" or "All according to keikaku" or they program a knockoff Uzbekistani Charcoal Drawing forum and entitle one of the subforums "Sweet Tea Time," Or they'll make iced oolong to wash down their squirrel, or they'll say y'all...
&c. It's just a bit bizarre when you see statist vaguely californian, lolsuchanerdxD bugmen on the internet, and slovenly overweight dudes at cons and in animu, but here, we've got these hybrid, roughly well-adjusted nerds who partake in subcultures associated by certain people with these undesirable types.
And Maybe it's just the media.

My end goal is to spend more money on a car too fast for my own good than my kids' college tuition.
>> No.9016  
That's easy, just don't have kids and then you can spend two (2) whole dollars on a sporty HotWheels

It's basically the best. There's still the bottom-shelf otaku/weebs, but there's so many people who are just down for the get down
[spoiler]Not that otaku/weebs are bottom-shelf, just that we have the bottomers[/spoiler]
It's also the magic of college, all the nerds get collected in one place where the CHADs are less common and you're not going to
be ostracized for your media preferences. Nothing better than dragon ball z decals all over your hunting rifle to remind you that
we live in a very strange world.

>dragon ball z decals all over your hunting rifle
Do you one better, there was this one guy I saw at my undergrad who drove around with his windows down blasting hip-hop in his suped-up Nissan with a huge literal DBZ decal on each side, actual moonrunes on the windshield and a rising sun front plate.

Was actually p lame. Schedule was different than advertised (so no Space Punk), black metal band was... black metal, i.e. worst metal, and the power metal group, though pretty decent was old, AND like no one was there at that point, so it was pretty low-energy.

It's just so hard to find out about shows; I went to a vapor~wave show my first year here out of a VHS shop that was a little north and west of the warehouse district in downtown. That was really kickass and I'm glad scenes like that exist: but I don't think you'll find people talking about it in the street too often
