7/14 days in a cone. Stanley is done with this %&#$.

Stanley picked up after cataract surgery. Still heavily medicated. Not so cheerful today!

Really loving on my devices. So much blocked now, even on AOSP (settings panel called out to Google?). Is there anything as simple and, dare I say "fun", for desktop Linux (preferably Arch) that anybody could recommend?

Hey minds, I have a project. A friend with disabilities has problems helping me operate the OBS streaming box. Keyboard function keys are a no-go. Ideally I'd like BIG BUTTONS.

Anybody up on their smartplugs?

I have a heater in my office I'd like to turn on from home. Don't care if I have to SSH into it to do so (or something like that). No android/apple devices in the house so I'm curious as to how I'd manage it. A timer would work but I don't come in every day (and don't want to waste power).
