So today I priced up some PC upgrades (MB, RAM, CPU, case fans & GPU). It was all going so well until I got to the GPUs. They’re either out of stock EVERYWHERE or massively over-priced.
I think I’ll hold off upgrading as I’m not prepared to pay over the odds, and I don’t want my current GPU (a 2GB RX 560d) to be the bottleneck in my new system.
Anyone know what’s going on with the GPU market? Cryptocurrency mining?
If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon I would really appreciate it if you marked your account as a bot (see https://superuser.com/a/1439495 for explanation of the effect).
If it's a dual purpose account (i.e. crossposting AND direct posting), then I would appreciate it if you created a separate account for the twitter crossposting and marked that as a bot account.
Crossposted tweets appear as a mess of broken links, missing threads, and the account is often unresponsive to replies.

@bigbrownepaul I'm always interested in what providers people like. The difficult thing about self hosting is preventing your emails from going to spam. Your IP won't be trusted 😓.
@bigbrownepaul @Heron @rjkershner and others. I also have challenges completely unplugging from big tech (work requirements). I know it's not for everyone, but I'm currently using multiple mobile devices. #GrapheneOS for my #foss phone, #iphone for work, and an android tablet for those cases where I'm forced to use google play store. Combo of #syncthing and #radicale (https://radicale.org) on the home server to sync photos, passwords, contacts, calendar, etc.
@bigbrownepaul I spent years trying to do the same, I was a pretty entrenched googler. Got pretty much everything moved, but as an Android user I still have an account. I just can't stand the iOS way of doing things, and going full FOSS Android is a no go for my work situation.
Maybe one day there will be a Linux phone that I can switch to.
@bigbrownepaul been trying to do the same myself, but between an Android phone, social media like facebook messenger, whatsapp, Instagram, both gmail and hotmail accounts... It has been a much harder task than I tought initially.
And for some there really isn't much of a alternative, PixelFree is... Barebones in all ways to say the least...
