Since mastodon.cloud might be discontinuing, and I'm new here, I guess I'll just move to some place that seems more stable. @finity

My ddWRT router is having trouble, time to replace. I use several of the advanced features, like OpenVPN. Keeping the software updated without bricking the device is a regular issue.

I'm considering separating this functionality - running the services on a Pi and getting a wifi router that focuses on wifi and routing.

This isn't just an issue where I live (the US), and the Atlantic article talks about what some other countries are doing too.

If we haven't taken full advantage of it this time around, we will get another chance this fall.

My corporate work asked for a “funny picture of your pet”. So I sent them a picture of Kiki, my sourdough starter, who enjoys being fed and taking long walks. My boss followed up with me to make sure I was doing ok.

@eleeshing I liked your post today. Having tried to talk to folks about new tech like this before, sometimes surprisingly the person I'm talking to turns out to find it interesting. Keep it up. Why not.

Happy Towel Day 2020!

Now go read one of Douglas's books!

@olry@mstdn.social I've been appreciating your very chill blog posts today. They're included in a RSS I found yesterday. Smoking and pizza.

Whaaaaaa? The idea that the water in a can of garbanzo beans could make chocolate mousse blows my mind.

Scully matches wits with a mysterious army general. Mulder accidentally flirts with alien babies.

@charlag - I'm clicking follow on you because you look interesting and share interesting nerdy things. I'm just starting here - I've thought ActivityPub is pretty slick for a while and would like an alternative to the entrenched social networks.

Just stumbled on this modern Gopher client-in-a-browser, and Gopher server.
