I've been parsing my RSS feeds down to things that excite me and not things that I feel I should read. I've also been unsubscribing from newsletters that I don't want to open right away. It's a good move for me.

Unsubscribe from a couple of those newsletters you never read.

Update! I got it working! Raspberry Pis are amazing. I'm working on getting my public library to 3D-print me a case.

Just when I thought I couldn't love Keith Hernandez anymore, I see his scorecard: youtu.be/8XQVXCdQQ38

Is it human nature to mash up an avocado, spread it on some bread, and ask 'Do you know how much this would cost in Brooklyn?' Or is this a regional reflex?

While my Zen of Debian project has been on Codeberg a long time, I think the double feed to Codeberg and GitHub broke when I made the switch from Master to Main. After that it went GitHub only, but I didn't write much.

Now that I've started working on the LaTeX version, I decided to do the work on Codeberg. The GitHub version will be frozen in time.

I don't know a lot about LaTeX, so be prepared for shenanigans. Bonus is that the half-baked project has a PDF.

I'm exhausted from from the newborn, but I'm feeling the draw of building a Raspberry Pi print server

I'm looking to talk to someone, ideally from an agency or small cooperative, who has switched to Nextcloud.

I'm interested in how people have things like Time Tracking and Deck configured for project/client work.

(please boost!)

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:

(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

I know this is US-centric, but the coolest library database is Freegal, which gives you X number of downloads per week. There are some real gems in it. The metadata isn't great, but other than that it's perfect: a perpetual source of cool music I can own. Definitely check it out if your library subscribes.

Me: Wow! A lot of hockey in the Fedi today. Everyone is talking about the Seattle Kraken!

Nothing clears the head like a good journaling session. Even if you don't gain clarity, at least you get some perspective.

New phone. Exciting but also super annoying logging in to everything again...

Rainy Thursday. Good day to wonder if I'm a clone.
