What does “PEBKAC” mean?

It’s an old acronym from the late 90’s/early 00’s (maybe earlier, but I can’t find any references past IBM’s use of it in advertising) that was favored in tech support circles. It stands for “Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair”. It was used as a humorous term to describe a computer user who wasn’t actually experiencing a problem with their system, so much as actually causing the problem through lack of training; negligence, or ignorace.

How can I contribute?

If nothing else, or you’d rather contribute in another way, there are donation links on the right hand sidebar, or you can use the contact page/social media to get in touch with me!

I don’t like how you do X, how can I get you to change it?

To be honest, I’m happy to get constructive criticism, but not criticism just to be a douche. If you don’t like something I’m doing, that’s cool. You don’t have to like everything I do, and there are many other podcasts out there that are likely to cater to your tastes. If, on the other hand, you can think of a way for me to make it better – I’m seriously open to ideas, just drop me a line!

Why arent you on X Social Media or Chat?

Mostly because of time, and privacy. I don’t have enough time to be on Facebook; Twitter; Instagram; The Fediverse; Signal; Session; Briar; Matrix; Email; TikTok; Reddit; Snapchat; Telegram; LinkedIn; Pinterest; Tumblr; WhatsApp; Viber; Line; Mumble and Discord (I mean… who the hell does have the time, seriously). It’d be doing myself, and the listeners a disservice, as I would be incapable of responding to everyone who wanted to contact me.

It’s much more realistic to stick to a few protocols/apps that are cross platform, and be available on them. I can be much more responsive if I can focus. I am not a social butterfly by nature.
