@emsenn@myasstodon.xyz I think we do know what will happen in an overburdened healthcare system because it is happening in Italy right now: treatable patients die. Sitting in a chair in a courtyard without their family.

I have a rule; if a machine resists getting fixed for longer than the duration of The Matrix, it's broken. Leave it alone for a bit.

Got a Philips CD-i a week ago with a few educational titles. Replaced the drive belt and the thing loads right up, plays burned games perfectly! Let me know if you happen to have a spare video expansion card laying around so I can watch CD-i digital video discs.

General update 

@emsenn cool idea! let us know how it goes. Are you thinking of switching to an RPi 4 soon? I got a 2GB one and it's quite a bit faster.

while date +%s | figlet | lolcat ; do sleep 1 ; clear ; done # Watch the Unix clock in style with figlet and lolcat. Tonight it passes over 1555555555 seconds.

@Gina obviously the later part of that last toot is very much what has worked for me, and may not work for you or others.

FWIW I'll turn 36 in a month.There are also many times when I still get an even worse feeling that I'm not happy.

But I did want to offer that I relate, and that there might be things you haven't found yet that will either help with fulfillment, or in my case help with perspective.

@Gina I swear it somehow get's work and better at the same time...

Personally I had a really hard time with "is this it?" when I finally finished college (I went part time and it took 8 years) and had a kid and a house. It felt like I had spent all my effort on these things and felt like "now what?"

Soon after I got more into (secular) Buddhism and started to find some really pragmatic stuff that clicked. I think ultimately this is all there is, but one can stop and realize that's ok.

@tootbrute I think I’m going to give YunoHost a shot. Any advice? Does it have any native support for BTRFS or anything else to counter bitrot?



As a listener I would rather get the content with the warning than not get the episode. At least for a content heavy show like Libre Lounge. For more casual shows maybe not.

SDF.ORG is one of the best spots in Cyber Land. While I maybe self-hosting a social instance or two for family and friends. I can assure you I spend more time on SDF. :-)

If you are familiar with ECHO and PIPELINE from back in the day SDF is that X's 1000. And if you want to compare to panix...SDF whips their ass. :-)

While I agree with decentralization and privacy, you cannot do it at the expense of community. So check them out and check out ANONRADIO.NET powered by SDF.ORG.

Stuff us way more complicated than it was just a few years ago because of https. I was trying to set up NextCloud with a snap recently and it was a pain to do anything except let NC take over the whole domain.

I've appreciated your series of posts both to learn a little and realize other people are frustrated with this stuff too.

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

Instagram ranked worst for young people’s mental health [0].

I am very aware of the toxic side of IG and look forward to establishing Pixelfed Labs [1]. The goal is to get the community involved in solving these tough issues through discussions, proposals and implementations.

We can build better alternatives if we work together!

@snowdusk_ I wasn't able to join live, but I enjoyed having some great coding music for work today. Thanks!

In my experience it's used as a spice. My personal first thought is from knowing a couple of people from Morocco and this killer chicken and rice dish, but it's widely used in Indian and Southeast Asian food.
