@boblmartens We need a "Linux" for phones that isn't controlled by an advertising company. Something open source and available to anybody without the spying.

So ... any good/decent eink tablets for reading PDFs? Right now I use an iPad, but the main thing I use it for is reading digital items and I'll have a lot of that to do for my dissertation soon.

I spent a little time this morning messing around with for so that I can sync PDF articles to my iPad Pro for reading. Anyone have a recommendation on an inexpensive tablet good for PDF reading and notation?

It isn't a situation where the Carbon X1 or Apple's MacBooks are better ... they are very different, and that is OK.

Work VPN setup on the ThinkPad Carbon X1 ... way easier than the past. I guess NetworkManager has gotten better.

I have my oldest son playing on @opensuse right now. No AI players, just building a peaceful civilization.

Also, first time in two weeks we do not have someone with a fever.

First day in almost a week I am feeling more like myself when waking up. I am hoping I am on the mend once again!

Helps to be home with the flu for the week. 🥴

I have named my new ThinkPad and I am close to getting things setup enough to begin the process of moving more and more “stuff” to it.

One of my favorite leadership/organizational health authors is live streaming two keynotes soon. I’m looking forward to it!

I don’t know what I expected, but the fit and finish on the X1 Carbon is quite a bit nicer than the T-series.

ThinkPad is on the delivery truck and I’m home sick with influenza ...

This flu might not kill me, but needing to upload large media files for our church over our measly internet instead of at work just might ...

So I’m looking at the or Thunderbolt 3 docks. Won’t purchase now, but a single cable for a desktop-like setup is quite tempting for the future.

Carbon X1 should be here no later than Tuesday ... excellent. Most excellent.

I’ve probably asked this before, but what does everyone use for task management in Linux? I use OmniFocus on macOS but just starting to look around for cross platform options.

Pulled the trigger on the Carbon X1 ... should be here next Thursday at the latest. Will see how this works.

Looking over the changes for APA 7th edition and, overall, I like them. The entire thing feels more cohesive. Thanks to my colleague who has allowed me to "adopt" her copy of the manual for a while.
