@deutrino in the Windows 9x case though, it was because there WAS no local authentication - there was an option for a primitive kind that'd swap profiles, but otherwise, authentication was only for network resources. There's no local security.

There's a similar GIF for NT, but in that case it's outright privilege escalation because 1. NT is multiuser/secure 2. You spawn EXPLORER.EXE as *NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM* - above Administrator. (The joys of shelling out in random stuff, at login...)

Good afternoon #SDF and the wider and weirder(In a good way!) #fediverse!

Hope everyone is doing ok!

Today I wanted, just for fun, to get everyone's opinions on non-Unix systems(Except Windows, everyone already talks about their Windows opinions), like #FreeDOS , #RISCOS , #HAIKU and the like.

Do you use them seriously or are they mostly just toy OSes to you?

me, to a goose: dont you think 3:2 is the one true fuckin aspect ratio

@Are0h are you just looking at GitLab, or you willing to consider others? if so, here's some more

* Gitea, a fork of Gogs that's more actively developed, UI more like GitHub

* you can get a self-hostable version of Bitbucket IIRC, I use hosted one for a project and it's OK despite weird UI

* Team Foundation Server, with nice VS integration; have used, actually liked

* gitweb, for REAL MEN who EAT GLASS (use if you use git cli for VCS, and just want a repo viewer/use something else for bugs)

Apps have command prompts now - wish I could find some history on this for old GUIs that had this...

For anyone who's looking for a CLI Mastodon backup/restore tool, @kensanata has written one:

I'm just getting started with it now.

@Gargron they see you're working on it; you only owe them that IMHO. don't ship a broken product for the sake of shipping
