Right-libertarianism is the belief that democratically-elected governments shouldn’t be trusted but CEO kings are modern-day saints.

Meanwhile, here I sit, whispering “why trust either?” into the wind. 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.

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.

@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. awesome, thanks. 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.

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.

@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.
