Nice to see that Linux Unplugged is independent again. They’re now working toward a member funded model, I just signed up.
If you’re trying to update VSCodium and getting a 429 Too Many Requests error from https://gitlab.com/paulcarroty/vscodium-deb-rpm-repo/raw/repos/debs/dists/vscodium/InRelease, here’s the workaround:
vagrant-libvirt and Bridged Networking
Once I had a way to install virtual machines on my Ubuntu home lab server, my next goal was to be able to directly SSH into them from my laptop. By default, the Vagrant-installed libvirt virtual machines all connect to a virtual subnet. In order to be able to connect from other computers in my home, I needed to set up Bridged Networking. . . .
Trying out ArchLinux using libvirt and Vagrant
I have been curious about the ArchLinux distribution for some time. I have a Ubuntu 20.04 server running in headless mode in my home lab, with KVM + libvirt already set up, so I decided to set up a virtual machine to give Arch a try. . . .

Blog Post: Nest Micropub - First Steps
Now and then I feel like it would be convenient to be able to post quick notes, or to quickly save bookmarks, here on my blog. The obvious IndieWeb solution would be to add Micropub support. Since I have a desire to learn more about the NestJS framework for creating NodeJS servers, it seems like creating a Micropub server using NestJS will be a nice personal project. . . .

"The Truth Is Paywalled But The Lies Are Free"
I wrote a short script that downloads YouTube videos from channels I like so I can watch them wherever I want, whenever I want, and with whatever media player I want.
Addendum added : With the default example Gitea configuration, I found that I was still getting Unauthorized errors. I had to watch the network calls to get access to the full error message. The problem was that even though I was authenticated, I was not actually authorized. I had to chose to either enable the allowAllUsers setting, or I needed to add specific users to the whitelist.

"... My laptop is all I need to work from pretty much anywhere in my house." - @mike
Turning all of the house into office is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea in my opinion. You will leave no place for yourself to escape.
You need a designated place for your work and only work from that place, never do anything else on that point. If your child comes to ask you a question, switch to another place, answer child's question, then return to your "work place".
Don't mix home and work.
