That is hilarious!!

I shall forward that to my wife, as my birthday is this month. 😍

Went with Baahubali: The Beginning and thoroughly enjoyed it! Which is surprising as it was only on my watchlist because I saw a clip of a crazy battle (from the sequel) somewhere on the internerds.

Drama, great music, battle elephants, OTT action and schmaltzy romance. Probably could've done with more dancing.

I now do need to watch the sequel as I need to know what the hell happens next, and to see the battle in question...

(I don't need to watch Blazing Saddles. It is imprinted on my soul)

I use an a laptop with an AMD CPU and GPU - this means it has two graphics processors. I run Manajro Linux, and I think I may not be using the dedicated GPU.
I wouldn't mind running on the dedicated GPU only - I need to do screen capture and video editing on it, so performance is much more important than power draw (I rarely need to use it on battery).
I've found this:
Does anyone have any experience with this stuff?

Fully intended to sit down and figure out how I'm going to implement borgbackup on my .
However, it appears that the rest of mind disagrees. Currently web-surfing aimlessly whilst listening to The Downward Spiral.
Oh well, better luck tomorrow?

Finally have a solution to the r-out-er/rooter pronounciation debate. We split the difference with "rahooter".

I'll call the #ietf in the morning

@derp I was happy that rsync was sufficient for my needs, as it's just domestic docs, photos and music.
However, I will now have to look into borg, and see how easy it is to implement on an old raspi.

Latest project: assembling an off-site backup. Utilising a , 3g dongle, USB HDD, luks and rsync.
Once I get it working in the garage, I'll post it to my sister who lives far far away, and nowhere near a cemetery.
Any tips? Pitfalls to avoid?

Crap day at work in the Warehouse Of Despair has been cancelled out by bath, wine and chocolate.
Time for a cuppa methinks... :teapot2:

@koreymoffett agreed. If it suggested emojii it'd be a lot closer to perfect.

@kev @mike 🀣 Brilliant!!
We truly are blessed with a plethora of teapot emojii! And that is one of the reasons this is one of the best instances out there.

Thank you.

(wait till I post a pic of the tea cosy that my great great aunt knitted for it. True story)

@mike ...brewed in this, my favourite teapot.
This was my great aunt's, and is one of my favourite things.
