Mind. Blown.

I discovered #pivpn tonight, and within 15 minutes, I had a wireguard vpn using my #pihole configured and accessible from my mobile phone.

Both of these projects deserve kudos and funding. Check out #pivpn if you've ever wanted to host your own VPN.

We established the other day that only morons use chat services other than IRC. But, there is an interesting implication to note: this draws morons away from IRC, creating a kind of reverse eternal september. These days IRC on the whole has noticably fewer idiots on it than it used to.

I label all of my XFCE Whisker menus with "Start" on Linux. ;) It reduces cognitive load required to process goofy icons and reminds me of Windows 95. :D

@brandon @Matter @kai I have a $69 used Lenovo N22 Chromebook that I put Gallium Linux on. It's awesome except the microphone doesn't work. Much faster & better hardware than my Pinebook Pro! Still like the PBP for tinkering though.

I wish I could find an ethical, simple WiFi direct file sharing app that works cross-platform via a QR code.

"Mum, are there any new fairy tales?"
"Yes, many writers write fairy tales."
"No, like, stories that you tell kids to teach them not to do stupid things."
"Oh, I see. There are a few. And one that really happened."
"Really?"
"Settle down, I'll tell the story of Leeroy Jenkins..."

Well I learned something fun today. Apparently Google Chrome includes software_reporter_tool.exe, which scans your entire hard disk for executables to analyze. Also, it reports the results to Google.
