Do you think that digital security is even possible? With all our info in all these databases, and conversations about election security, do leaks happen because people are not securing it properly, or because it's not possible in the first place? I'm curious what my fediverse tech friends think.

Survey: Security would be adequate if we...

It's phone experiment time. I bought a used iPhone 7, and it's annoying the heck out of me, even though I like some things. So now I'm going to buy a used Pixel 3a and see if it's any less irritating. Then I'll return the one that loses.

Also, watching review videos about the phones is useless, because they are all about the perks of google cloud stuff versus apple cloud stuff, when I want to turn all that off and use it as little as possible.

Hoping this will be my last non-Linux phone!

Not the coolest time for the internet to go out!

PSA: make sure the battery backup for the internet is plugged in, and avoid loss of power to the ONT internet box as much as possible! We flipped the wrong breaker, and after that the internet wouldn't come back on. Now we have to wait for a tech to come fix it.

Gaming find for this week: This project, which let me play Diablo: Hellfire on Linux, and it was super easy. My husband put it on his Windows machine so we could network together and it worked like a charm. (Networking didn't work with him on the regular install of Diablo, and me on DevilutionX.) It still requires the actual game files from GOG.

My phone is on its last legs, so I'm in the conundrum again, where I don't want to buy any phone current that's on the market, but I do actually need to use a phone for things.

Playing in orchestra is hard, but it's making me better at violin. You didn't wonder about that, but now you know anyway.

I'm very into this ambient noise generator for Linux. I found it on the AUR, but it's for Ubuntu and other distros too. It's weird how listening to little forest noises suddenly makes me able to focus on the computer.

What's your favorite command line email program? I want to try to get serious about this, and Mutt is the main one I know of. Is there something else I should try instead?

Thanks friends!

@cameron I guess I like tinkering, trying things out and helping others. :) I was huge into support back in the days and made close to 15 000 posts in a few years, mostly focusing on helping others. I learned a lot by doing that.

I'm also really into minimalism and simplicity. I love finding out how much you can do and how far you can take anything with as little as possible. 'Worse is better' is a concept that really intrigues me. :)
