When butchering spare ribs St. Louis style, you separate the bottom section where the bones are from the top along a natural bend. There's a long, narrow flap of meat between them you remove that cooks hours before the rest and serves as a chef's snack (pictured on the right).

Breaking in my new "BBQube" temperature controller on a few racks of St. Louis style pork spare ribs.

Testing out a generic 360 degree-style laptop dock, which seems to work pretty well with the Librem 5 out of the box!

Oh you know, just printing from my Librem 5 phone to a printer it automatically detected and configured over the local network. No big deal...

The first picture doesn't really capture the scale of this orange, but how about the fact that it can wear an N95 mask.

We just picked a massive navel orange from our tree today. Normal-sized meyer lemon and quarter for scale.

The recent opensnitch packages seem to run well and fit on the Librem 5! Good use of scroll bars and other UI elements.

I attached a USB-C hub to my laptop dock using a flattened IKEA bracket and some 3M tape. Now I can easily use it and see both screens from my lap. A bit hacky but it works.

Coming soon to a Librem 5 near you: support for the internal OpenPGP smart card reader.

6. I would use my smart watch timer app for my coffee, so I replaced it with a kitchen timer clipped to my French Press.

My big fat Greek reading list. (Actually almost finished with Durant, and this will be my second time reading The Iliad, but first time with Fagles translation.)

I took a nice break over the summer and did some light reading, but it's time to dive in to Volume II.

Check out the Halloween surprise I found underneath my sawhorse!

"1984 was a typo. 255-91-1755. That's me. I've been reduced to a series of digits. My Social Security number is in thousands of computers that buy and sell my life story."

If you (like me) are watching for the 25th anniversary, you should check out the novelization! So amazing and with subtle differences from the film.

I can't overstate how influential Penny's computer book was on my ideals for computers: portable, always with you, flexible, extensible, easy to reconfigure/reprogram. It's why my first laptop was a Libretto and why my next personal computer will be a Librem 5 w/ a laptop dock.
