I think I missed a prompt somewhere... here's a quick message to introduce myself (http://tilde.club/~bupkes).
My name's Matt. I am in my mid-forties and I live in a town called Lewes just near Brighton on the south coast of the UK.
I'm married and we have a 12yo kid and a cat.
I've had a few jobs in the past, most of my twenties in a record shop but now I work for a charity.
My job is basically working with blind people (generally older people) explaining how to use various bits of technology.
Many people I work with have never used a computer before and can't see what I am talking about, so it can be tricky :)
For fun at work I play with VR stuff which - surprisingly, I guess - works really well with people who have poor vision.
At home I enjoy playing with Python and doing cryptic crosswords. Every week my wife and I do a twitch stream (https://www.twitch.tv/bupkes_)where we (and a bunch of people in chat) do a puzzle.
Anyway that's me, or at least a bit of me.
I'm here to meet people and learn new things.
See you around.

You're the perfect group of people to turn to for help with this.
I'm working on a video where a significant prop is an old box of 3.5" HDD
disks. I managed to get an old unopened box of pristine disks and labels.
Now I need to write on the labels and make them look like someone has
actually been using these disks, circa 1990-2000 or so.
All the labels should feel real, but they can't use trademarks. So they
can't say "AOL installer" for example.
I've got up to 50 of these, and I'm open to ideas. The gist of what I've
got so far is:
Mouse Driver 1.1
NEW Soundcard Driver
Pixel Racer Man
PCI Bus Ethernet Drvr
CD-ROM Device Driver
Very Important Data
You get the idea. Send me your suggestions!
Let's make a silly little story together. Everyone will add one
sentence, each on a new line, until it feels like it finishes well, at
which point one should write END on a line after the last sentence.
Thanks for adding me to the mailing list. I don't know if this is reaching
anyone else, or if I was added by accident (I created ~tea on tildeclub).
Who are you?
I'm Sam. If you enjoy vaguely technical thoughts punctuated with a lot of

I've had an account at tildecow.com server, which is at pfhawkins' list.
The server is down since Sunday 19/10/27. Do you have any information about
the status (down for a certain time frame/forever), as admin/owner
Chickenbaconranch(a)protonmail.com does not
respond to my e-mails (but e-mails to this address are not bounced)?
Best regards and thanks,
Hello everyone! I am sneak. (https://tilde.zone/@sneak on the fediverse.) This is sort of an intro post, and sort of a call for assistance.
First off, I'd like to say hi, and how much I love the tildeverse - I also ran a free unix box for about 20 years (the domain was registered in 1997) - and I want it to grow and continue. If there is anything I can do to assist in that, let me know.
I'm working on a project that is only relevant to Las Vegas local people, so if you don't go there or know anyone there, you can skip the rest.
https://cryptoparty.vegas is an attempt at getting a once-monthly Las Vegas cryptoparty going. If you haven't heard, cryptoparties are community gatherings where people who may not be super techncial can learn about preserving their privacy and security online. All are welcome.
If you know anyone who would like to participate, either as an attendee, or as a speaker/teacher, please let me know.

Hmm, I do not have any experience with wireshark or really networking in
general, what would be a good point to jump off of in that regard?
Enjoy the rest of your day,
