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!
Hello, world! I'm the new guy on tilde.club. Thank you very much for a great platform and all the hard work and time you invest into it! I have been reading the Wiki pages and I would like to suggest a few improvements:
* It may be a good idea to start grouping articles under the topics: command line, terminal multiplexers, security, text editors...
* The link to the SSHFS tutorial doesn't work. It seems the file has been deleted.
* The SSH tutorial from Ben Harri could benefit from a better colour for showing terminal commands. Currently it is dark blue. On a black background it is very hard to read.
Thank you for your attention and have a wonderful day ahead!
I hope everybody is faring well through the uncertainty of this COVID-19
pandemic. If you're stuck at home and looking for something fun and new
to do, try out the new tildeverse space we set up on yourworldoftext.com:
As with all things in the tildeverse, keep it positive!
Google auth wasn’t the highest on the poll that I ran. However I do feel 33% in favour of google auth or options like it is enough for me to implement the feature.
To use google auth you also need to enter your password for your account on login.
Information on getting google auth setup you can go on our wiki.
If you’d like to see more options reply to this email with suggestions and I may look at implementing them.
Thank you to everyone that participated in our poll.
