🎤 I am planning to make some videos testing various audio interfaces with Linux, focusing on "bedroom producers". 🎵

However - I need YOU to answer a few questions before I can begin my work.

Your input will help me choose devices to buy. Please take some time to research the options - there's a lot that you may have not heard about, that could present great value.

At least not without a process of:
1. Duplicating it to another directory
2. Renaming it
3. Moving it back to the original directory

It's the whole fox/chicken/corn boat scenario of file management :politecat:

So apparently in the Dropbox phone app, you can't duplicate a file and save it with a different name in the same directory :smugcat:

Phone: *specific bing noise*
Me: A communications notification! Human contact! Companionship!
Notification: "you got a text, it's your 2fa code"
Me: oh, right, yes that

Don't trust platforms that say "we won't"

Trust ones that say "we can't"

I seem to have missed the invention, announcement, and subsequent mass proliferation of salt water pools.

So yeah... I joined Nextdoor... and the emails I get from it are... something. CW: petty crimes and pet-adoption-related posts taken way out of context 

"Top post: Stolen coconuts"

"Top post: Mystery Holes in Yard"
[I'm guessing... ALIENS]

"Top post: Just left the house."

"Swamp cats"

"criminals are busy this month"

"Looking for someone to love us"

"Our Phantom is Back and Desperately Needs a Loving, Forever Home."
[or how to make pet adoption sound like a weird haunted house situation]

I just tried searching for a Funko Pop and Firefox crashed so I rest my case.

Much ado has been made of the mythical 10x developer, but what of the lowly -2x developer, faithfully sabotaging their team's projects?

Joke with religious and late capitalist allusions 

I would describe myself as a Funko Pops iconoclast.

I love how an iOS device will say “Good Morning” on the Lock Screen when you first pick it up…. regardless of what time of day it is. I suppose Apple is presumptuous enough to believe that you couldn’t possibly go all morning without using one of their devices.

"Ahhhh Florida... where the gentle rains bring down the refreshing smell of -"

"Chlorine?!?!"
