Day 15 of the #100DaysToOffload 2021 Series:
Lots of people actually trust Google. I trust Google to take as much of my information as they can and use it however they choose. Beyond that, blindly trusting the results of any search engine is probably not the best idea.
I've been using #Git for around a year now, and it's been fun. But a lot of the guides I've read have been way too detailed. So I decided to write my own guide.
As it seems to be "in" in the last couple of days, here is my "why I'm on fosstodon" and my likes and dislikes of the community. I enjoyed writing it, and hope you're not tired of them yet :p :)
Looks like #Mycroft started shipping their Mark II Dev Kits on Friday. That's nice to see. Hopefully the rest of the Mark IIs will be shipping shortly. I love Mycroft, but it's hard to not be a little bitter about this whole thing when the expected shipping date was March of 2018. Three years later, still waiting.

Day 13 of the #100DaysToOffload 2021 Series:
A sad day for nerds. At least American nerds in the western United States. Still, sad.
I really want to try this extension, but I have a feeling that I'd get super sick of seeing that "blocked" screen pretty quickly.
I have nothing new or interesting to post for #screenshotsunday, so I thought I'd dig out an oldie for this weeks edition. This one is from March 30th, 2012. There's an IRC window down in the lower left, and some conky in the upper right. I THINK this a pre-Cinnamon Mint distro, but it could be just be a Gnome 3 desktop. I did run Mint 12 back around then, which was the version before Cinnamon became a thing.
I don't often link to Twitter statuses, because.... Twitter, but this one was funny. I'll quote so you don't have to click the link, but you can if you want to.
