If you have old phones, tablets, iPods, or digital cameras that you don't want to end up as e-waste in a landfill, consider donating them to Medic.

“Joe Versus the Volcano” is entertaining, profound, and highly underrated. I never tire of watching it.

I am really enjoying pinafore.social as a client on my smartphone. No app to install, just use a browser. Clean, lightweight, and feature-rich. Kudos to all involved with @pinafore development.

My neighbor gave me a 24” CRT TV with built-in DVD player. I love it. It’s been probably a decade and a half since I’ve had a tube TV and the experience is a nostalgia trip. It’s new enough that it has a digital tuner, so I can watch OTA TV on it, too!
