Just "fixed" the Internet at my father-in-law's by moving the 2.4GHz Wifi away from the phenomenally crowded ch. 1 onto ch. 8.

Last gig of the year done.
It's now Port and Stilton all the way to Hogmanay.

I like the idea of an advent calendar. Maybe could plan one for next year? Fun little projects made by :fosstodon: members or other FOSS instance members?

Got myself a Β£30 pre-loved glo today, mostly for the obvious (reading books) but am loving how well works on it. I have an that sends a few long-form feeds to Pocket. A much better way to read long articles.

Just need to figure out how to get to see it when it's plugged into my laptop...

So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.

The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.

I just saw this sign. These kids are great.
