Setting up my Ras Pi 8GB as a media machine for my TV. Spotify refuses to work but most everything is good to go.

Due to scheduling conflicts, we won't be able to do our #AMA live stream.

Instead, we have opted to let everyone ask their questions on social media! Then, in a couple weeks, we will answer several, if not all, of your questions in a blog post.

Ask away everyone!

Looking at installing on my server.

C++ rant 

Why the hell can I not get this stupid program to compile using a dynamic library I made? I'm pointing to everything I need, I THINK I am doing my right (although g++ isn't seeing the lib. So what do I know?). It honestly feels like g++ and GCC just want to spite me at this point and its pissing me off.

On a side note, if anyone wants to help package an app I am working on for RPM-distros, please help.

OBS is not very intuitive so I am just making a couple build scripts to handle everything.

Was trying to build my first RPM package and lost the entire project.

Thank god for git.

Trying to set up my to be able to cast to it. Sad to say my best chance has failed me.

KDE Connect to the rescue I guess. :-/

Ladies, Gentlemen, and all other genders, I am proud to announce the first paint I have found with the hex code right on the label.

Apple Barrel may be craft paint, and the color may not exactly match what the name of it is on the label. But at least they are honest about what color it will be when it dries.
