So far liking the Kobo line of devices, but no touchscreen/stylus or note taking capability it seems.

Not necessarily a deal breaker, but hoping to find something that ticks all the boxes

Anyone know a good tablet that's not loaded down with DRM (which rules out all the kindles AFAICT)?

A definite plus would be ability to take handwritten notes/edit documents (eg, with a finger or stylus)

Trying to image a NAS drive (the first of 2 in a JBOD, the second of which died). I know total recovery is out of the question, but I want to image the non-bad drive before I format & redo the whole thing as a RAID 1

Aaaand my "pink KVM" issue has mysteriously fixed itself.

THE MYSTERY DEEPENS

Finally found a good quality kvm, installed it and works great...for ONE of my computers!

The work computer OTOH has some major hot pink color issues, somewhere between the monitor => kvm => usb-c hub => macbook.

Apple has been...less than helpful

The age old question: "am I entering a depression spiral, or just burning out" 🤔

Every KVM switch aimed at home users is made by the same few manufacturers, with the same half dozen brand names slapped on them, they all range between $30-100 and all begin to fail after 6 months.

What the eff.

It's revelations like the Zoom fiasco that reassure me that I am not a fanatic for insisting upon open source.

amazon vs the working class 

Pretty cool the media are now using the same adjective, restive, for US workers that they previously rolled out to describe Xinjiang and the Uyghurs.

“thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"”

Yes, software corporations are moving deeper into abusive relationship habits with their users.
