Just boosted some videos from my #PeerTube. If you follow @theouterlinux, it also follows me on my PeerTube, if that makes any sense. Replies to those videos through Mastodon also adds replies to the PeerTube site. Adding more. I had a #Christmas video (2017) in which it was ABC's of the #command-line with an ASCII fireplace behind it, but the cloud service I backed it up to fails to let me download it to re-upload it to PeerTube. I hope I don't have any more like that. Fingers crossed.

I spent Christmas Eve with @Lead Foot Lizzie and we put on Spotify's Punk Christmas playlist because we could, and here's a gem from it: 12 Days of Pop-Punk Christmas by Jarrod Alonge and the Sunrise Skater Kids.

It was #Christmas Eve in 1968 and millions were watching as Apollo 8 carried the first humans to orbit another world. The crew broadcasted live pics of Earth & moon as seen from their spacecraft. Relive this moment: https://youtu.be/ToHhQUhdyBY

# Phill from GCHQ - page 75 #


Drawing - 966 × 1350 px - 664 kb PNG - Page 75 of Phill from GCHQ -

With this extra Christmas-page the date of the real world and the fictitious one (not the year, Phill is in 2016) coincides - the 21 of December - winter solstice.

I will like to thank you all for the support you have given me in 2018. 2019 will be the year where the first Phill from GCHQ-album will be printed. I am sure none of you will be in doubt when I start the PR-campaign on my other profile: @Jakobu. It will probably be a Kickstarter or something similar.

So I will only say this:

Have a nice Christmas - Yuletide - atheist's couple of days off - or whatever you are going to do for the next week

Orange and clementine cake

Someone gave me this cake recipe and I don't know if it's royalty-free? I have no #copyright but nevermind, there it is, #glutenfree, easy and delicious:

Ingredients:
-1 orange and 2 clementines (or 2 oranges) (organic ones)
-3 eggs
-125g sugar
-125g almond powder
-1 teaspoon of yeast

Step 1: Put the oranges + clementines (the whole fruit with its skin) in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to boil and let simmer the water for 1 hour (covered saucepan), drain and mix the fruit that are now very soft in consistency.

Step 2: Add the eggs, sugar, almond powder and yeast to the mashed fruit.

Step 3: Pour the mixture into a buttered dish.
Cook at heat 180° for 45 min (check with the tip of the knife), let it cool down and reserve in the fridge.

Gâteau à l'orange et aux clémentines

On m'a passé cette recette de ce gâteau et je ne sais pas si elle est libre de droits ?? Je n'ai aucun #droitdauteur mais je vous la donne quand même, elle est #sansgluten, facile et succulente :

Ingrédients:
- 1 orange et 2 clémentines (ou 2 oranges) (bio)
- 3 oeufs
- 125g de sucre
-125g de poudre d'amandes
-1 cuillère à café de levure

Etape 1 : Mettre les oranges + clémentines (les fruits entiers avec leur peau) dans une casserole, recouvrir d'eau, porter à ébullition et laisser frémir l'eau pendant 1 h (casserole couverte). Égoutter et mixer les fruits qui sont devenus tout mous maintenant.

Etape 2 : Ajouter à la purée d'agrumes : les oeufs, le sucre, la poudre d'amandes et la levure

Etape 3: Verser le mélange dans un plat beurré et laisser cuire à 180° pendant 45 min ( vérifier avec la pointe du couteau).
Laisser refroidir et conserver au réfrigérateur.

#Trump becomes part of an Air New Zealand #christmas ad


The American boy, dressed in a two-piece suit and red sloganed cap, says he is not naughty at all and is the nicest person he knows, provoking laughter from the other children, reminiscent of the reaction to Drumpf’s speech to the U.N. General Assembly in September, when he spoke about the achievements of his administration.

This is the almost most apt depiction of Donnie. It only lacks the bad coherence/grammar, the constant insults and the pacifier. But except for that, I like the christmas ad already. :-)
If Donnie just knew about the country, he would possibly add it to Australia, as a remote island.

Woohoo, I GOT ONE! Paul is an IRL friend, has embraced the #deleteFacebook movement, and just joined #friendica. One of the downsides of my leaving FB was that I no longer got updates on where his wit, curiosity, and politics took him. This is gonna be great. Please welcome him, and give him a follow if you like smart, funny, humble, left-leaning people who never stop learning.

Paul, I'm looking forward to pictures of the cats in front of the fireplace, your melting basset hound, and the latest holiday decorations.

New Here


Hello friendly people of Frendica,

I'm #NewHere. I decided to try this after a friend, @Alyson See, recommended it. She had done research/trying out of some federated social media services and seemed to like this one.

I had been becoming disenchanted with my primary social media service, Facebook. But the recent news about FB first covering up their discovery of the Russian's interference in the election process in 2015, then their use of Russian disinformation tactics to cover their behavior and try to lay blame on other competitors, well, that was just too Trump for me. Deleted my account and here I am.

Enough about that. What about moi? I'm an unrepentant liberal. What does that mean? I won't apologize for thinking we should care for the most needy in our society. Nor for the environment, education, universal medical care, and all those other socialist leaning policies. As the columnist Gene Weingarten is fond of saying, "I'm so liberal the trees hug me." When you raise the boat for one, you raise it for all.

Speaking of columnists, my favorite is #LeonardPitts. If you want to get a good insight into my social and political leanings, he matches my thoughts about 99.9% of the time. https://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/leonard-pitts-jr/

I'm retired from the software/IT industry. I worked for #IBM for 15 years, then left to a small, local startup called #MDI, which was bought by #Sybase. I worked there for 6 years, then went back to IBM for another 15. My education was a double major in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology and Computer Science from the University of Colorado in Boulder #CUBoulder. I started working in the CU Boulder MCD Biology department, got married, and needed some real money to survive, so I went to work at IBM as a lab technician in analytical chemistry. A few years later, IBM retrained me as a mainframe programmer, and the rest - as they say - is history, I suppose.

My favorite aspect of my career was the people I worked with. Whether writing software, leading a team, being a manager, or working with clients, the individuals around me were the primary reasons the work either made, or broke, my enjoyment.

Next came the intellectual challenge, whether trying to figure out an algorithm, shooting a tough bug, figuring out how to make a good work environment for my team, helping an individual succeed, or with a problem that may/may not relate to work, figuring out an IT architecture, those were the things that motivated me.

Now that I'm #retired, my wife & I (she's also a former IBMer) (1) take care of our elderly furr-babies: a Norwegian Forest cat, a formerly feral racoon-tailed momma cat from Chicago, and a 15 year-old #BassetHound named Maggie. (2) volunteer with the City of Boulder Open Space/Mountain Parks #OSMPBoulder as a trail guide. We also volunteer with Voices for Children as Court Appointed Special Advocates (#CASA). We work with kids in the court system because of abuse and neglect, and make sure their needs are heard by the court.

We audit classes at CU Boulder, particularly enjoying astronomy and astrophysics. It's great not to feel the pressure of homework and tests, and just focus on learning! We have done some traveling, but are grounded right now because of the needs of our pets.

I love to cook. We're vegetarians and I enjoy coming up with creative recipes. They don't always work, but what the hey, gotta try. Oh, and I love to eat. That's a constant struggle with me...

I love a variety of movies, from romcoms to action to drama to mystery. I tend towards binge watching - not a good thing - and lately my wife & I have subscribed to #Acorn. We get lots of British, Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand shows with that. We also have to watch it with closed-captioning so we can understand with their accents and slang. But we love it.

I decorate our yard heavily for #Halloween, I love #Christmas, and I love all things #Disney. My favorite project at IBM was working with Disney for about 5 years. What can I say? Great people, and intellectually challenging!

Aloha for now. I'm looking forward to finding new e-friends here.
