Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

Maybe I'm in denial, but I still refuse to believe that the whole "brony" thing is anything other than hipster-irony gone overboard. Basically, the Web 2.0 equivalent of the "Lumber Cartel" or "Cabal" jokes from Usenet (conspiracy theories that people would ironically pretend to believe in).

A guy I work with grudgingly admitted a while back that his college-age son is a high ranking member of the Atlanta area Brony club. He said he suspects it's a ploy by his son to "get girls interested in him".

The kid is an engineering genius, and nerds are big with the ladies these days. Somehow I don't think it's about getting a date. Some guys just take that show completely seriously.

And who am I to judge anyway? I greatly enjoyed watching Sex and the City in my early 20s, and that's something most guys would never admit to even if their spouse made them watch it (and I wasn't married then).

It is a bit of a joke distro that has been around for a while.

That it's been around for a while does reduce the creepiness factor. Quite the opposite really.

I don't get the Brony thing at all, but it at least seems mostly harmless... Assuming these guys don't get into fistfights over which pony is more awesome, or whatever.
