This video that is mostly about foss software is really heart warming, for me at least it hit very close to my heart, and gave me the warm fuzzies, small projects that seem to be uneccessary can be so important in some people's lives. I don't get people that say "why do we need another x" why don't people just contribute to y instead?.

But I think Andreas says it better than I could ever do.

OK, time for a REAL app. After getting comfortable with SQL, I've made a really simple tasks app I wanted but couldn't find on the OpenStore. Stupidly simple, with no frills.

If it's interesting to any of you, here's the OpenStore link.

Having fun with tho. Also tried out a bit for an upcoming project.

I should also mention that, to get this working with my Nexus running , I had to find a way to install avahi-daemon and libmdns to ensure that it could read the local address via /#Bonjour. Works pretty well, though!

It's been super cool running a @nextcloud instance for myself on a Pi 3 running so I can sync my school documents to my Nexus 7 in a privacy-respecting way.

Maybe someday I'll get more serious with this and slowly move away from iCloud Drive... 🤔

Pro tip: When you call technical support cursing and screaming, then you threaten to take your business elsewhere if you're put on hold, that only makes me want to put you on hold so I never have to deal with you again.

Maybe rethink that tactic?

Had a blast racing around in again with friends. Though the temple level in the free-for-all mode kinda wacks out if it's flooding and you die while in the water (softlock)

Postponed: I'm not feeling very comfortable with this at the moment due to some restrictions. I might just do some devlog videos instead or postpone to next week until I know I can do so.
