My gitlab pages site takes forever for changes to appear on the site, even though the commits were successful. That's not fun. I might look for other options.

@lunduke About keeping files on a USB drive: When I had four or five different operating systems at once on my 120 GB Macbook, I kept all my main files on a teeny usb drive that I kept plugged in all the time, so I could access them from whichever distro I was in the mood for at the moment. When I got a System 76 laptop, I forced myself to be a grown-up and only install one distro on it. I kinda miss all the hopping though.

I'm delisting the switching.social handbook at the end of next week (Sunday 9th June), so if you want to buy a copy now is your final chance:

Anyone have much experience with android emulators on Linux? If I could get that running on my desktop it would be a good piece in being able to step away from proprietary platforms needed just to run one or two proprietary apps. I'm trying out Anbox now.

Internet's back on. It was out for 4 days, and it was kind of refreshing. But here I am on the internet again. I guess that's how they get you.

Do you have any thoughts about the search engine ecosia.org? I like the tree planting angle, and they say they are "privacy friendly," but I'm always skeptical. Just wondered what you think.

I've just found out Google want to provide a VPN service.

I think the irony's giving me an aneurism.

Say, I tried to join the forum at heavyelement, and it said my info was flagged as spam. I'm not spam, I promise! It doesn't matter which email I use. Seems weird. Any idea what that might be about? Maybe it's a fluke and it doesn't like my IP or something, but if it's happening to other newbies too, that would be not so good...

Well, this seems like good news... I hope other cities follow suit.

"San Francisco supervisors voted to make the city the first in the United States to ban police and other government agencies from using facial recognition technology."

P.S. I like the new theme, and I'm keeping it.

This is a new record for Rhubarb the Hacker Cat, sitting on my laptop while I changed the laundry for two minutes. She opened Seamonkey, changed the theme to this sweet silver style, and tried to email a link to the youtube video I was listening to. And fullscreened the original video.

Random tidbit: elementary users have paid hundreds of dollars for my little apps in AppCenter, even though it's not required. All other distribution methods combined (including Flathub, Fedora, etc.) have grossed $9. From one person.

This week's whoops: Using Alpine Mail, there's a reset password option - I thought it was the password for my mail account, not the whole dang system. Didn't expect that in a mail program. Anyway, that was confusing, but I've reset my password to the right one that I won't forget, and now I know something new.

We got a robot vaccuum, but I can't ride on it, and the cats don't ride on it. Should we get our money back?

I got Alpine Mail working after some trouble figuring out server names. I've never used command line email before, so it's kind of exciting.

Vote by mail should be implemented in every state. This is a hill I will die on.
