I'm thinking about introducing a section of my website that will help my fellow #anarchists discover the world of Free Software. What should this section be called? It needs to be something fun. So let me know. I assume to two dumb dumb options I am putting up here will get voted off this island, but tell me what you think.
I know I'm one of the huge fans of decentralization and all, but I also don't believe in throwing good money after bad. Don't pay for cable. It isn't worth it.
People call in all the time complaining about their bill. I'm tech support, so I could shove those off on our customer service team, but instead I ask if they have a smart TV. If yes, then I say, 'well, you have Gigabit internet, so why not just cut the cable and use Pluto and when March Madness rolls around, get the app and watch it?
I don't know what the fear is, but most of them have a knee jerk reaction. 'No no, I can't do that...'
It sounds like mortal fear in their voice.
I've been working for an #ISP for about 4 months now. I learned one very important thing. If you want a reliable TV experience, get rid of your cable and get #Pluto TV. If you need your football or basketball, get the app and buy the pass. You'll literally save about $1000 a year and there won't be as much downtime.
Dirty secret is that we don't make any money on your cable TV bill. $200 a month for basic? Yeah, every penny of that goes to the #networks. We keep it to keep internet customers.

About to start recording a new episode of #AnarchoBookClub
This will be sort of an update episode where we talk about my adventures getting the website transferred over to #Pelican and the next segment of a book that we will read.
I say segment because the book I am pulling it from is massive. I will have links and all that, but it is a 5 volume set and the part that I really want to touch on is already long enough, the way it is.
Stay tuned for more info!
I would have publicly done this earlier, but I screwed something up when I started converting my old site to this new Pelican site.
Now it it pretty! It scales well! The RSS is fixed. Everything seems to be honky dory!
So thank you BleakGrey for the hard work that I was too lazy and dumb to accomplish.
