Oh shit, wait... that was MARMADUKE. WE LOVE MARMADUKE.

@lunduke Hi ! Feeling a bit lonely here ! 😂 Remind me so much of the early internet love it

@lunduke I like Lunduke, and one of the reasons I do is that you REALLY remind me of David Tennant (British actor from Doctor Who mainly)

@naebulys @lunduke Now that you mention it, you never see Bryan Lunduke and David Tennant in the same room at the same time...

@gboyd42 @lunduke It seems rather obvious that the Tardis run on Linux anyway. But the Daleks are definitly using Windows 10 as they always loose. Not even getting started on the Cybermen, certainly running Vista.

@naebulys @gboyd42 @lunduke actually the cybermen run a proprietary shareware OS that they install on their victims. It has a lot of similarities to Vista tho.

@paulfree14 Yes, I met David Tennant in person once. Seemed like a nice enough chap. He even let me have a shot in his TARDIS. Stank a bit mind, could do with a good clean. And the toilet was blocked.

@gboyd42 I'm not shure if I understand what message you want to bring me by that?

@lunduke I really wish that we lived in a world where a person could have an opinion and not get removed from their job/college/school. I also wish that people could voice their opinion with out worrying about getting beaten up. I know I am going to get a lot of flak for this post but that is okay.

@lunduke btw not trying to be political... sorry if that post I just made had anything relating to politics, it is sort of hard to tell these days.

@lunduke Speaking of older computers, we pulled my dad's Osbourne I out to show my son's what portable computing used to look like. I actually managed to remember a few CP/M commands.

Unfortunately these days you need to deal with the politics or the politics deals with you.

@lunduke The followers of the Cult of Stallman don't like being called a 'mob'. :blobsad:

@trash @lunduke yeah this is right, and don't let us see you use any proprietary software without risking getting beat up!
Jk of course :p


Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

dreggon agrees with @lunduke that this is a good song, but thinks that it is sad that people need to be told the other things.

dreggon has decided he dislikes his own toot's. They smell bad.

But that is dreggons own personal opinions.

@lunduke why are you using a 3rd person perspective?

@lunduke lunduke is smart

Lunduke likes pixel art

But most importantly

Lunduke has heart

One day I was in my parents farm with my young nephew helping to get up a bunch of cows. We had them all up except a couple, but as we got them headed the right direction, we saw the entire herd getting out again. I yelled, "Dadgumit" and my nephew looked at me and repeated "Dadgumit!"
I looked at him and said, You know, it's a good thing that I don't cuss.
He said, "yeah."

@lunduke that lunduke fella seems alright

party on dude

@lunduke I take issue with it. “Real man” is a really lame term along with “man up”, “man card” or any other gender-related judgements of a person. Why is it ok for men to hit other men? It’s not. “Real men” are generally dicks, and I never want to be one.

@gabek Never said it was ok/good for a man to hit other men.

Also... language.

@gabek @lunduke Well your name appears to be "Gabe" and not "Dick". So you don't have to worry about being a real man.

@lukedashjr Shrug. A real man doesn't hit a lady or a kid.

You can call it a fallacy if you want to... but I hold that it's true.

If I hear of a man hitting a kid (or a lady)? I think less of him. As a man.

@xzenor @lunduke yeah, my bad. I shouldn't have went there. It prob came off as rude as well.

@jordan31 @lunduke I actually laughed about it. I thought it was funny.


Do real men not hit other men either or just women and children ?

@lunduke Real Men don't fall victim to the false notion that some words are somehow "bad".

Real Men don't try to tell other people what words they can or cannot use in public.

Real Men recognize that if it's okay to say "poop", it's okay to say "crap" and "shit" because Real Men are not hypocrites.

@lunduke Those people who "fear being attacked", what are they saying, exactly? That you think is so important to be told?

@lunduke its good they call you a nazi it means you won only poeple with no arguments need to use nazi.

@jordan31 lol! Yes! Boggles my mind, but there are some people (a tiny handful, luckily) that are borderline obsessed with attacking me online. Day in, day out. And calling me a Nazi (or variations on that theme) seems to be their go-to line. ;)

@lunduke All good. But smearing 20-year old privacy tech collectives for attention on youtube was a dick move that would make Bill and Ted sad.

@priryo @lunduke is it smearing if they not only condone but actively initiate violence?

@lunduke "Free speech and Free Software are my jam." His! His jam! You, sir, do not know how third person works!
You might not be a nazi, but I am ... of the grammar kind, that is. :P
I just found out about your podcast today. You seem like a pretty cool guy. And sure, you've made mistakes (who hasn't?), but people who think the only way to point them out is to constantly insult you and continue blaming you even after you've explained yourself are beyond awful.

@Mayana ACK! You're right! I totally broke the third person rule with that line! CURSES!

And thanks... and welcome! :)
