Honestly... Cryptocurrency just seems like a bunch of stocks tracking the potential for cryptocurrency, rather than actually being used for anything else to their purpose.

I don't know of we've moved the needle at all towards an actually useful currency, but I'll take my money and donate it to something when the market turns.

I got some Stellar Lumens for free a long time ago just for having Keybase ... And now they're worth $500 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Super underrated feature of Google Home and Nest speakers: you can connect to one over Bluetooth (“Hey Google, turn on pairing mode”), then play that audio on a group or your whole home (“Hey Google, play this on Apartment”).

Boom, compatible with any device with Bluetooth.

Solus has been my Linux distro of choice since November 2016.
Recently there was no way to financially give to the project. Now there is by supporting the lead developer Joshua Strobl as he works on open source, desktop-focused software.

@killyourfm You doing alright? Haven't seen a post in a few days... maybe you decided to just totally disconnect for fake Christmas! :)

Finally got around to listening to EP 43: Course Correction - appreciate your honesty and willingness to share. Keep up the good work (wherever you're podcasting)!

Again - I want things like Flatpak and Snap to succeed! But I have to wonder if developers realize that a broad majority of us consumers may sometimes (or semi-permanently) be on slow (< 10 Mbps) internet connections.

I can deal with running updates overnight every once in a while if there are a massive amount of updates, but the fact that they're now duplicated (or triplicated) by flatpak / snap is just frustrating.

More flatpak grumbling... so even after I went through the process of installing some utterly massive base packages to get just one or two packages to run, there happen to be updates to those base packages (as expected!). This means I'm looking at downloading up to 2.9 GB just to get system updates. There _has_ to be a better way to do this.

@ReverendLinc 👋 Call me curious - got a page or link talking more about being bivocational and/or the church you lead?

The best part of having a toddler is eating all of their snacks.

Today features:
- Graham Crackers
- Goldfish
- Cheerios

Well, playing tetris a lot in the childhood has some practical benefits;)
There is more to pack btw.

My roommates were making fun of me using Linux, until I used it to resurrect the old laptop and make us a minecraft server.

Then they looked ate me like I'm a necromancer or something

Well here's the verdict so far on code editor themes.

Nord is actually the color palette I like the most, but unforunately the way it's implemented lacks enough contrast for my eyes to be able to use it. I'll probably use the colors for some fun projects sites coming up:

Dracula / Darcula is a bit too much contrast (I know I know, goldilocks).

But Ayu Mirage feels REALLY good.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

Slack is down.

Company is currently falling back in love with email.

Meanwhile - I'm still yelling into an empty IRC channel.

Thanks for the theme suggestions everyone! Looks like the list to try is:

I'll be sure to share which one ends up feeling right. :)

The vanishing of @sir finally convinced me to host my own instance, to keep up with his blog as well as some other feeds like HN and It's nice to have them all in one place, without having to check multiple websites.
