Any recommendations for a USB stick that works well hosting an operating system? Not a read-only live USB setup, but a full OS install. Bonus points if I can put multiple partitions on the stick.
I want to try out Qubes, Fedora, and maybe a couple other distros. Once I've found the distro I like, I plan to leave it on the USB stick and use the internal drive in my laptop just for data storage.
Finally joined the fediverse and fosstodon seemed like a solid place to jump in.
I am a Fedora Linux user (full-time since v25) and have been using Linux and FOSS in some capacity for the past ten years. My roots are in Debian.
Recently I've been taking the time to really learn Vim and alongside that, started writing in Markdown. I'm also learning to use Ansible and reading through The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim, et al.
Looking forward to being a part of this community!

I've noticed a few big negatives about Searx:
1. Google's captcha is a huge problem.
2. Public Searx instances tend to yield terrible search results without Google.
3. Bing search results are often porn, regardless what you're searching for.
I've endured it long enough; I'm just going to switch to Startpage. Which has a "cookieless" settings feature, great for Firefox Focus.

This makes me want to run a tarpit on my own server.
See the comment about rickrolling. Lol. If enough people ran rickrolling tarpits, would attackers be forced to implement rickroll-detection?
Side note: Is there anyone on lobste.rs that could send me an invite?
#rust support in VS Code with the rust-lang.rust extension is frustratingly buggy. Has anyone had a different experience?
I'm new to the idea of distributed hash tables. Question: If a project is built on top of a DHT (like @Jami), does that mean message metadata is basically open to the public? Is a DHT-based system a bad choice for people trying to avoid metadata leaks (i.e. third parties knowing who I talk to and how often)?
