Back to technology topics... tried out #voidlinux a bit this weekend. Seems like a really nice mix of bsd-esque simplicity by default, but with the hardware and application compatibility benefits of Linux. I'm not particularly opposed to #systemd but it's interesting to use something a bit different.
Think I'll leave the laptop as a dual boot between it and #openbsd.
Anyone have any recommendations for #bbq charcoal smokers in the << $300 (i.e. not Weber smokey mountain) price range?
$45 Lowe's special I modified a lot into something useful has rusted through after 6 years.. and am debating whether to try to fix, or buy something new.
My wife made our son a #Minecraft cake cake for his birthday 😀
Decided to try #openbsd on something with a bit more oomph this evening - workstation with 6 core AMD and 48GB RAM. Works flawlessly - even the relatively new RX550 GPU. Have definitely become a Linux for work, BSD for recreation person.
Didn’t get any Merle Haggard at the record store..... Did get some Skeeter Davis, The Turtles, Band of Horses, The Head and the Heart, Scritti Politti, and a Weird Al single. #vinyl
Other rant for the morning.... why do Apple hide so much normal functionality? In photos you are supposed to now magically know to hold cmd if you need to delete a photo, not just remove it. I guess you have to pay them more if you never delete things! Trying to tidy up before switch photo syncing to #nextcloud
I like #blackfriday . I get emails from newsletters I almost forgot to unsubscribe from
