Sean Parker of Napster got it pretty accurate with this one. I bet most people did not believe him at the time.

Syncthing keeps being a bit buggy for me - slow to sync, not connecting properly sometimes, stuff like that. Do you guys have any other favorite local file sync methods?

I guess complaining works, because now I'm successfully finding other themes to try with my Jekyll site, and they are cooperating. Or maybe I'm just not doing it wrong anymore.

*Complaining* Just can't get happy with my web site. Can't seem to edit the css the way I want, and when I try to change themes I get errors. Not one specific thing, just when I get one fixed there's something else. I'm tired of debugging but don't want to go back to wordpress.

I left my laptop open with web browser, email and normal programs running. When I came back, Rhubarb the cat was sitting on it, and it had been booted into BIOS settings. No, I would not like to save setting changes! At least she didn't wipe my harddrive or anything.

Now you can buy a laptop you can actually hack and repair and build yourself! The polar opposite of planned obsolescence!

The new Pop OS 20.04 seems pretty nice thus far. All easy and smooth to set up and it runs well. I turned off animations to keep things speedy, and will look for other ways to keep Gnome running as lightweight as I can.

The tiling function is nice, but I won't use it all the time. Maybe for specific projects.


"Apple and Google said they will not allow use of GPS data along with the contact tracing systems. The decision will require public health authorities who want to use GPS location data to rely on unstable workarounds to detect encounters using Bluetooth sensors."


I think I'm going to fall for the 20.04 hype and try out Pop OS again.

I think I've finally got Shotwell figured out and set up right for my photos. I've tried every photo manager I can find for Linux, and Shotwell seems the best for me. I realized I could use saved searches for some of what I wanted to do, and now that I have that, I can tag and organize to my heart's content. I'm quite pleased.

suicide post on masto 

Sounds like they've been institutionalized, so maybe that will be of some help? I hope? But it's freaky and sad.

suicide post on masto 

Um, not sure what to do when someone on Mastodon is posting about planning suicide. I don't know anything about them outside of their masto profile, but don't want to do nothing...

I'm researching ways to have some rough stats for my Jekyll site without javascript or anything invasive. I just want to know how many people come to my web sites, nothing else. I have Awstats through my web host, but I can't tell how many are actual humans. I don't think it's the thousand a month Awstats makes it out to be...

I'm excited to watch some Linux Fest NW online videos. I'm sad we can't go this year, but online is a nice consolation prize.


Today in dumb things I've done, so you can try not to do the same thing...

I just realized I lost my OTP app in the phone switch, so I lost web access to my email account with Posteo. Hopefully I can prove it's me to customer support and get it fixed. The security of two factor auth is backfiring on me right now so I might stick with the text message version from now on.

I am trying to get into using , but my feed is a bit lonely. Do y'all have a Pixelfed I should follow?
