I ordered the HP Reverb G2 VR headset today as I wanted to experience VR (have an RTX 3090). But the delivery is going to take 6-8 weeks and might get delayed further due to the pandemic โ˜น๏ธ

Received the 1 March 2021 security update on my OnePlus 7T Pro today, 1 May 2021. ๐Ÿ˜ก Outdated security updates once every two months ๐Ÿคฌ Never settle for a phone!

I dist-upgraded my Raspberry Pi 4 8 GB from Ubuntu server 20.10 to 21.10. it failed with errors, but running 'dpkg --configure -a' fixed it some how. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ When I rebooted it, I was expecting it to not come back up. But it did ๐ŸŽ‰ In case, something is broken and shows up in the next few days, I'll clean flash 21.04 and restore everything from backup. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

I spoke too soon. Came back to Tiny Tiny RSS within a week as FreshRSS was not only significantly clunkier in terms of UX, it often didn't show parts of some posts in the feeds. The former didn't have any such issue and has a familiar, working environment. ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜’ Forked the now-unmaintained Linuxserver.io TT-RSS docker source and fixed it to work with the recent changes to how the TT-RSS configuration works. github.com/lgp171188/docker-tt

I considered going back to NewsBlur, which was my first web-based feed reader. But self-hosting it involves a complex process and I don't want to spend $36 per year for the hosted service when I already pay so much for my own servers, which have the capacity to self-host everything I need.

After using Tiny Tiny RSS as my feed reader for many years, I'll be switching to FreshRSS in the next few days. I have been using the LinuxServer.io tt-rss container, which has been abandoned for many months as the author asked them not to package tt-rss, built his own inflexible replacement, recent changes broke the LinuxServer.io container, and is a very difficult person to deal with. I did consider fixing the broken container or building my own but decided against it.

And the site is back up just after I posted this. But it is very slow.

Digital privacy really shouldn't be something that people are compromising on, it's absolutely baffling to me the amount of people who know about the atrocities of the modern web and simply ignore it and or play it off as "not a big deal"
