Hi, I’m Anton McClure. You may remember me from such websites as and

I have been a member of the tildeverse since October 2018, starting with, and eventually spreading out to, and of course, During my time in the tildeverse, I’ve come to better understand how UNIX/Linux works, benefits of free/open-source software, among many other things. Hopefully, YourTilde can do the same for you!

I’m planning on holding a meeting via IRC this Saturday (September 5, 2020 at 12:00 EDT) to discuss the future of YourTilde, how we can go forward from the change in management, and give users a chance to give their feedback on the current state of YourTilde.

Meeting will be in #yourtilde on (port 6697 – SSL enabled). Hope to see you there!
