You guys are cracking me up with the responses. Not gonna lie, I'd push most of you out the other door, before we left the curb, if you started in with half of these topics. 😜

Word around the block is; you've got a Chia Plot and Linux is the way to go for maximum Chia madness. Let's hear about what you're working with.

You’ve been kidnapped. 30 mins later your kidnapper dumps you on the street because you won’t stop talking about what?

*Seen in a few other places but, still interested to see the results. 😜

I like that most VPN services' selling point is to show you your own IP address like, "Oh no! Everyone can see this! You're DOOOOMED!" But it'll be OK if we just let Joe Bob's Discount VPN and Bait Shop have exclusive access to our Internet activity instead.

I just compared the most modern and lightweight distros in an empirical manner to determine who the lightweight champion is. If you are looking for a distro that runs great on a VM or older hardware, please have a read.

So, hypothetically, if we were to throw some other stuff other than stickers into our store, would anybody care? Like t-shirts, hoodies, coffee cups, etc. Asking for a friend.

Any EDC (every day carry) buffs out there? I'm looking for recommendations on a new EDC bag. Everything seems to be either massive, or tablet sized. Looking for something that's somewhere in the middle and won't break the bank. Also, I'd prefer a backpack vs. a sling.

Going more private has a lot of old school attitude.

Don't use credit cards, use cash (of course no Apple Pay etc.). Don't use google maps, learn where you need to go and figure it out like you did a decade ago. Don't listen to streaming music, listen to music you downloaded.

What would you do if there was no big tech companies to hold your hand? Will you be lost?

Just spent a really interesting hour on a Zoom call with our very own @markosaric of @plausible over on (bloggingfordevs.com/).

Really interesting hour, Marko - thanks so much for your time and it was really great to "meet" you (albeit) virtually.

Any amateur/ham radio enthusiasts out there? Been thinking about dabbling in it as a hobby and for disasters, etc.

You all might appreciate my Home Assistant setup, particularly what I call "dad mode". Tells me how long someone left the lights on so I know how loud to scream at them....

Lots of chatter about FLOC. Just let you fine people know, Fosstodon has already applied the appropriate header and opted out of that whole 💩 show. 👍

Side note - same goes for my personal website.

Man Convinced Coffee Tastes Better After Making it in a Much More Inconvenient Way: "...I sat down and watched him start a chain of events that would’ve had Rube Goldberg checking his watch." 🤣

One thing I struggle with as a co-founder is the work/life balance and being able to disconnect. I'm getting better at it but it was much easier to do when I had a regular job. There’s always something I'd like to do now...

The family and I tested positive for corona, late last week. While it's not been a walk on the park, I'm fortunate to not have had symptoms as serious as others I've known. So far, it's been limited to full body aches, headaches, and fever/chills. My wife has had some light respiratory issues but, we've been monitoring it closely. Considering some of my friends have contracted it back to back, and been hospitalized, I'd say we've lucked out so far.
