If you're interested in this sort of thing, now might be a good time to buy a PineTime from @PINE64. I bought another one. The price is good, and it's an open source smart watch.
Just got an offer for an entry level call center job. You know, assuming I have this small list of skills already. If I do, they'll be willing to let me work there.

Day 28 of the #100DaysToOffload 2021 Series:
Introducing the #Mycroft Mac Plus! Err... Mark II! Ish?
Recently my friend and cofounder of #Fosstodon posted a blog post about how he's no longer using #Linux on the desktop. The reaction from the community was a good one, so I figured that I could safely announce something myself that wouldn't illicit too much hate.
So, here goes....
I cut off a large part of my beard....
Please don't hate me.
Understanding your environment is important for everybody in a process! This is a literal request I received:
Transfer a file from an Azure blob to a SFTP server so an internal server can use an Internet facing service to pick up that file and transfer it to another internal server that then processes it, places the output back on the SFTP server through the Internet facing service so an internal process can pick it up though the Internet facing service and transfer it back out to the blob.
Customer: "Can you expedite this request? We've been unable to do this task for over two months."
Me: "Soooo.... you haven't been able to do it for two months, and you want me to drop everything I'm already working on that was planned and done the right way for something that's been broken for months that you all of a sudden want fixed immediately??"
This is a paraphrased conversation, but not by much. 😠
Kinda seems like poking a sleeping bear considering how litigious these trolls have been already, but the claims made by these people are just flat out stupid. I supported #Mycroft by buying one of their books. Here's hoping it's put to good use.
