It's pretty sad when providing four years of security updates is applauded as a bold move. Two years of security updates for mobile devices is what planned obsolescence looks like. https://www.techspot.com/news/88712-samsung-now-offer-least-four-years-security-updates.html

Deleted my Facebook account today, whoa I did not expect it to be a slightly heavy experience with mixed emotions...not for me but for some of my friends...it felt like I was abandoning them forever...this thing has being a second nature to us to an extent I could not imagine...how deep this app/company has infiltrated our life..wtf...
Anyways, it was a liberating thing to do. #digitalfreedom

I've been gathering courage to share a project I've been silently working on for 10 years with a few friends. It's music and it's pretty shite honestly, but I thought that this year might be the year I come out of the closet with it.

Any feedback would be awesome. It's in #Finnish.

To the amusement of my friends and colleagues, I'm really serious about new year resolutions, which I didn't make this year. Typically this is a new set of skills to learn or fitness goals. I've been telling myself I need to get better at networking and network security for YEARS. I think this might be the time. This fits well into my current project of beefing up my home network.
Anyone have any good resources for learning?
I'm using evil mode because I'll never leave Emacs. Org mode is just too powerful. Best tool I ever used in 30 years of writing. But the other tools I use all support vim keys, so it makes sense to keep everything uniform and minimize context switching.
