Thinking about playing The Legend of Banjo-Kazooie - The Jiggies of Time in about 30 minutes. If anyone wants to join in on the fun, I'll probably stream it at twitch.tv/woofakfak64

Spent the evening yesterday moving my daily driver machine over to Pop!_OS. I've tried out every release, so it's not exactly new to me, but so far I'm enjoying it quite a lot! Have a few final things to do today to transition, then tomorrow I start my new job! Super excited!

Really hope that my neighbors didn't hear me out on my patio giving my tomato plant a pep talk this morning.

This is, however, very bittersweet as I say goodbye to my home for the last 9 years. I've loved helping the students and staff of Avery County Schools, and it has been a joy to teach computer science and see my students learn and go out into the world. How lucky I have been!

Huge personal news! I'm super excited to announce that I'm joining System76 as a Customer Support Technician! As most of you know, I've been a huge fan for over a decade, and I can't wait to help support our customers and drive more people toward FOSS!

I finally did it, I pulled the trigger on a 3D printer. I know what I'll be assembling next weekend!

Finally got my iPod reformatted with fat32 so I could install Rockbox. While not the best UX in terms of ease of use or navigation, it unlocks so much potential that the stock firmware doesn't have (plus, it's FLOSS) . Native FLAC playback on a 5th gen iPod with the iFlash kit and a legendary Wolfson DAC. It doesn't really get better folks!

Does anyone have a remote for Kodi that they particularly like? I have one, but it feels cheap and is missing a few key buttons (like play/pause and skip). Most of the ones you find online are either super cheap or complete overkill (I don't need a full keyboard, just a few reasonable buttons and good construction).

One of the photographers behind one of my favorite wallpapers in elementary OS has their own CC0-licensed photography collection! Check it out: cupcake.nilssonlee.se

Rocking Easter on my own for the first time ever, so I decided to go the nontraditional route with food. Don't mean to toot my own horn, but the ribs were a real winner!

Hold the phone, you have to *pay* to read ISO standards? How is that okay? I know it takes money to develop the standards, but if there's a spec that everybody has agreed to go by, shouldn't that be visible to everyone at no cost?

Everyone, especially those who work in software or computers in general, should take 10 minutes out of their day to watch this Tom Scott video: youtube.com/watch?v=BxV14h0kFs

9 years ago today we released the first version of @elementary@twitter.com OS. Happy birthday to us!

Like many of you, I'm passing time by cooking and stress eating. I made a smashburger last night. This evening I'm giving homemade Japanese fried rice a go.

Most unexpected thing I've learned during the quarantine so far: almost everyone I follow has apparently always wanted to learn to bake bread, and just never had the time. Those loaves are lookin' good, everybody!
