Well I'm mvyrmnd, I'm a sysadmin with a cybersecurity bent. Otherwise I like auspol (yeah, I know...) and I just built a car for a charity rally.

Hi and welcome to new fedi folks. I'm Mike. I help researchers work with code and data at the University of Sydney, and when I'm not doing that I'm usually reading, cooking, running around Lane Cove National Park looking for echidnas or making music.
I also post drawings prompted by a neural net at @GLOSSATORY
Hope you like it here.
Just trying out this mastodon thing to see how it all works. Never been that big on twitter, so we will see...
I guess for my #introduction: I am a software programmer building web apps in Sydney. I love to play board games, I DM some D&D when I can, and I like to try my hand at writing stuff on the odd occasion.
I'm Rob from Sydney Australia.
Sick to death of all the hate and misinformation going on other social media platforms so thought I'd join and see how it goes.
Ex software dev dinosaur (30+ years) Still a bit interested playing with new tech but nothing serious.
I'm into bushwalking, photography, nature , reading and learning more about things that interest me but never had the time
I guess is good to write an #introduction post 😃

Short statement regarding Switter and the fediverse.
Thanks to everyone who calls this and our sister instances home. The fediverse is an interesting experiment I hope has a long fruitful life.
The shutter of switter has increased my personal concerns as an admin of this bright little corner of the internet. There is NO RISK to aus.social, but I do need to prepare for the worst. Seems government intervention is not impossible in the long run, regarding the eSafety bills or existing data retention laws.
The administration second this article by digital rights watch Australia.
There will be an outage tonight for a short period (less than 5 minutes).
Because the Mastodon developers are planning to release important security fixes in about 5 hours... I will apply those patches as soon as possible, but the administration requests that everybody follow the Code of Conduct rule of "Please No Hacky", if you're aware of the security issues ahead of the patches being applied.
Hi ... I'm a PhD in Pure Maths, now working in Maths Outreach and Enhancement. I mostly live on Mathstodon.xyz, but have this as an auxiliary identity.
But my interests are eclectic.
I'm Australian, based in the UK, but COVID permitting, I travel.
