The story isn’t that Amazon sent Alexa recordings to the wrong customer, the story is that Amazon records and stores seemingly ALL the audio that Alexa can hear.

On the upside, this SSD is super fast. Can’t believe I lived with that slow old hard drive for so long. KDE Neon looks great. Lots of nice little touches. This is my first time using KDE in 10+ years. It’s completely different. mastodon.technology/media/yc8S mastodon.technology/media/6iAL

Countless reinstalls and repartitions later, finally have KDE Neon and Windows 10 dual booting on the new SSD. Not sure why the Neon installer is so limited compared to Ubuntu. Automatic detection of Windows Boot Manager is non existent on Neon.

I have a new SSD waiting to be installed in my desktop gaming/Linux/remote work rig. Replacing an old Western Digital Green HD. That old WD is sloooooooow. Can't wait to see the difference.

Still not a fan of ventless gas fireplaces. Feels potentially dangerous should the unit malfunction. Nothing beats the look, smell, and sound of real burning wood. Although, this is a lot easier to maintain.

This Ventless gas log unit is 23 years old. 😬 Today I disconnected, disassembled, and deep cleaned the unit and walls. Also scrubbed layers and layers of soot off the logs. We’ve lived in the house for 4 years. Prior to cleaning, running this thing stunk and caused my eyes to burn. Now it seems to be good as new! mastodon.technology/media/7_Or

It's raining and all I want to do is work on my Arduino + LCD display script.

Hi tech friends. If you're interested in software defined radio, or radio comms in general, I run Amateur Radio Weekly which highlights a wide range of radio news and projects. Next issue hits inboxes in about 8 hours: hamweekly.com/

More interesting than baseball is the fact that networks/stations are still transmitting 720p HDTV. This is essentially half the visual information compared to 1080i/1080p. /shrug mastodon.technology/media/YmJ8

Used to play fantasy baseball where choosing pitchers each day of the season was a requirement. Helped pass the time during my summer internship.

I don’t know why I’m watching baseball. Couldn’t name a single player on either team. Haven’t paid attention to MLB in 15 years since the Marlins won in 2003. mastodon.technology/media/c2tq
