Not yet, but I live in fear.

I did make the mistake of mounting a drive while I was in the middle of formatting another one. It just halted the operation so it wasn’t too bad, but I try to be more careful now.

No thank you, nazis.


To be fair there are a lot of English-speaking nazis that end up on VK after they get canceled from other platforms.


I kind of love the Japanese Internet. Those old-school sites where everything is in plain HTML. That period before the iPhone where Japan was producing all kinds of futuristic flip-phones was great.



This is mine: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1362/custom-hot-corners/

I’m pretty sure that’s the one. I use hot corners a lot when I’m using a mouse / trackpad to quickly display all open applications, or to show the desktop.

If it gets integrated into Gnome I probably wouldn’t use any other extensions.






I haven’t read a lot of these sources myself yet, but the first one at least by the Communist Party of India is worth a read…

I think you can set up your pihole with a VPN for remote use too.

I just searched and found this tutorial but there should be more around:

In that case I would look into switching ISPs, or maybe connect another router and put the ISP-supplied one in bridge mode if possible.



However you feel about RMS, I think we can all agree that the FSF goofed up.

Whether it was a defiant announcement that they won’t let freedom-hating SJWs cancel Stallman, or an announcement of accountability, apology, or steps to address his behaviour — they should have made some kind of statement instead of just letting Stallman himself announce that he was returning without much explanation.


You shouldn’t be using an ISP-supplied router anyway, right?

You don’t know what they’ve put in the firmware for remote management.

Even buying the same model router from a store to replace the ISP one would be preferable.


I much prefer macOS to Windows, and Gnome is a good transition from macOS.

I use a trackpad, and never found the need to use min / max buttons. I use the upper left hot corner to display all windows, and lower left to display the desktop.

On Mac I use 4 finger swipes a lot to transition between workspaces for applications I want to use full screen. So those gestures in Gnome 40 sound like a welcome addition, and I’m sure they’ll go some ways to convince more Mac users to try Linux.

I know Gnome and especially Pop!_OS are meant to be very keyboard-centric. But I’m quite used to using a trackpad.

Well, I’m transitioning into using TWMs like Sway now, but Gnome is definitely my favorite DE.

I’m also forced to use Windows a lot, but don’t enjoy it at all.


How’s does the build feel? Is it solid? How are the hinges, etc?




I just set up Pi-hole / unbound on a raspberry pi zero w:

https://docs.pi-hole.net/guides/dns/unbound/

It’s not too difficult. All you need is the raspberry Pi zero W and a microSD card. You can power it via USB. You don’t even need to connect a monitor / keyboard for set up.


That’s pretty cool. I’m surprised how well everything seemed to run.




I was wondering what had happened, then I read about the OVH fire… I guess it’s a good lesson in being prepared for anything. Glad to see you could get everything back up and running so quick.

Jellyfin looks like it will now have 2 release candidates for testing and bug-fixing before the full release. As such, this won’t auto-update, but the brave can install manually…
