Thank you!

Something was def wrong with my Fedora install, most apps wouldn’t work, freezing a lot.

Decided to do a refresh, and haven’t tried Ubuntu in a while. After seeing how much they now rely on Snap apps, I lasted all but 10 min.

Realized I’ve never actually run Debian, so it’s installing now.

@doot based on the position and color of clouds, the wind would not be going in the direction for that one bird to be approaching a landing from that angle, plus, it appears the weather indicates autumn and that bird is only in the area in the summer.

Also, the sun doesn't set like that!

It's really a bummer. I make more money than I have ever made in my life, don't spend money on anything crazy and do what I can to always keep our costs down, but thanks to inflation on every products, plus higher rent, we are more poor than ever living in San Diego.

You don't have to, many of us are struggling these days.

Privacy is not hiding nefarious activity, it's an innate right. A superb article from @danarel on why privacy matters:


Fuck the Supreme Court, fuck the Democrats, and the fuck the Republicans.

Burn it all down.

Looks like Brave Search is going to let users upvote and downvote results.

Something tells me StormFront is going to be upvoted a lot on that search engine.

@cassidyjames LOL, that beats my recent signup and I put Dan as my first name and it said "first names must be more than 3 characters"

Brave "calling out" DuckDuckGo for anything is hilarious. Even if they are right, Brave doesn't actually have a history of doing the right thing.

@mattdm I am very boring and name it what it is. "fedora-dell" "work-mac" etc

Launched my first site with Hugo today just to try something other than Jekyll.

The structure seems a little cumbersome, but maybe that's just the learning curve?

Okay music loving friends.

I need quality turntable recommendations for someone on a budget. No Victrola or Crosley please.
