@Gina Aiming for a wide variety here, I can highly recommend The Anthropocene Reviewed, Twenty Thousand Hertz, The New Show (which replaced User Error), and Filmsack.

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

@Scottws That's something I've always wanted to try. I may well look into getting a circulator. Thanks for the suggestion!

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!

@tadan0 With enough patience, it can be surprisingly affordable! I search ebay for 5th gen iPods (they're the ones with the best DAC) for months and months, and eventually found a nearly pristine one for $139 shipped, including the 128GB iFlash kit.

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!

@artfulsodger @unicornfarts Thanks for both recommendations! I'm a pretty tactile person so 9/10 times I reach for a physical remote, but sometimes it's on the other side of the room and an app can keep your butt glued to the couch. I'll check them out!

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).
