#FamilyMan been married for >14 years and have two daughters. Those three girls are my greatest love on this planet.

I consider myself a #GNU Evangelist. Learning about what #FreeSoftware was, including GNU/Linux, opened my eyes to so many things: governments aren’t the only ones stealing individual rights, I know so much less about computers than I thought I did, the idea of code, I can make a difference without having to know anyone particular.

I’m employed as contract Engineer in the Metal industry. My workplace is not yet unionized, but I’m hoping to fix that. #Union member of the #IWW IU440. I don’t have an engineering degree. After discovering Free Software I took my political scientist butt and found a call center job that paid for me to go to Community College to study Software Engineering, where I learned that I liked the idea of coding a lot more than I liked coding. The blessings of God put some great opportunities in my lap at just the right time.

I’m a #Libertarian and have been for over 20 years. The love of libertarianism is what lead me to first to a BS in #political science and later to falling in love with Free Software. These days I lean toward the left side of the libertarian spectrum including being a member of the Libertarian #Socialist Caucus of the Libertarian Party (LSC-LP). Sometimes I call myself a #LibSoc.

I’m a huge #sports fan, but don’t following any particular sport/team super closely. Lately I’ve been getting into #Cricket in addition to my other passions of Professional #Wrestling, Lower Division North American #Soccer, NHL & College #hockey, #baseball #olympics & #rugby (union and #RugbyLeauge). My whole life used to be American #Football, but now-a-days I can’t stand it anymore than I can basketball.

I’m a #BornAgain #Christian, accepting #Jesus as my savior at age 9. Received #Believers Baptism at age 18. Received the baptism of the #HolySpirit as evident in speaking in #tougnes later that year. The #Spirit lead me to the #Catholic #Church at age 20 where I was confirmed at the Easter Vigil. I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ in #recovery from lust. #XA #SA #CR Currently in the very early stages of discernment for joining the #Ecumenical order of #Fransicans (#OEF).

@OnishiMyers or we’ll shoot him first, either way.



@yogthos @tomasz russians are about russian domination. Under that microscope, certainly the USSR had the best time for Russian domination.



@Zerush was suitcase thievery a big problem in the 1960s?


@OptimusPrime
I forgot I have a bookwyrm account but the import of my CSV “library book queu” the way I wanted to I haven’t really liked at it again, though I had planned to massage the data and find out



@OptimusPrime Friendica (which I’m posting from right now) Pump.io, Plemora/Soapbox, Mastodon, GNU Social, Mobilzon (which is like MeetUp), i think that’s it, unless you count XMPP/Jabber, Matrix, and email which are also federated services.



@Owell1984 did you see that you no longer need a phone number to create an account?



@_ed in case you are unaware the XFL was owned by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainmnet) and now is owned by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, so “MMA attitude” should be an understatement.


@_ed the both semifinals where better than the final. Regardless I agree that Samo did fantastic this year. I hope getting someone other than the big 3 in the finals is a sign of Rugby Leauge growing across the globe. I still think the American XFLwould/will have been more succesful if they just played Rugby league and called it “Xtreme Football” Leauge is much closer to Gridon football than union and should be easier to sell to a North American audience (not to mention that its the better code anyway).


International matches need to be available on demand
I appreciate that ICC.tv makes associate cricket streams available (even if streaming on [#YouTube](https://libranet.de/search?tag=YouTube) would be so much better). However, why do they only have live streaming of full matches, and not video on demand? Especially with [#sports](https://libranet.de/search?tag=sports) like [#cricket](https://libranet.de/search?tag=cricket) that is so International, being able to avoid spoilers and watch later would be so much better. As an [#American](https://libranet.de/search?tag=American) I'm so tired as I've been up in the middle of the night to watch cricket way too much lately. One of the many things I really appreciate about matches that are streamed on [#ESPN+](https://libranet.de/search?tag=ESPN+), they we are already paying for anyway as part of our [#Disney+](https://libranet.de/search?tag=Disney+) bundle. !SPORTS@lemmy.ml @streaming@gup.pe

@nicfab@community.nicfab.itb this sounds like a giant nothing burger.


Will we finally look at seperating athletics from education?
The only reason there is any concern here is due to the North American problem of linking sports with higher education. This would never happen in the rest of the world where private clubs, not public schools, are where amature athletics thrive. as an American sports fan I demand [#SeperationOfSchoolAndSport](https://libranet.de/search?tag=SeperationOfSchoolAndSport) [#Sports](https://libranet.de/search?tag=Sports)

@yogthos @dRLY Even better I found the original scientific paper they were referencing. THANKS /r/scholar ! transfer.sh/ujBHfV/jacs.2c0909…


@dRLY @yogthos you actually read the article? Would you mind providing the text?


@linux because I trust the Debian model


@linux what’s wrong with just using whatever browser is in your repo?




Is Wade Barret announcing Rugby League World Cup?
Has anyone else been watching [#RLWC2021](https://libranet.de/search?tag=RLWC2021)? Who's the British announcer? It sure sounds like Stu Bennet / Wade Barret.

Where to stream Rugby Leauge World Cup
any recommendations on where I can access a stream for the Canada- Papua New Guinea Women's Rugby League World Cup match this afternoon (ET)? I'm interested in watching, but not interested enough to give Fite.Tv $100 to do so.

Request for Meme
does anyone have the meme based on an early 20th century political cartoon that includes people freaking out about electrical lines causing death and distraction with a Meme caption showing THIS IS WHAT SOME OF YOU LOOK LIKE WHEN TALKING ABOUT 5G. An internet search isn't helping me find it.
