Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

Last week, @staltz published an article looking at the funding of open source projects.

It's a long-form article full of nuance:

Tl/dr: More needs to be done to fund open development, including more pressure on companies to donate to projects they benefit from, unionising, alternative licences and more donations in general.

This made me wonder, should there be a day on the Fediverse where we promote donations to a particular project? For example a #SupportSunday?

My wife called me a nerd. Would a nerd get really excited about his new self sharpening mechanical pencil from Japan and share about it on social media? I don't think so...

Amazing article on the importance of understanding your team's personality mix and dynamic.

today!! That means I don't have to wake up early and make school lunches tomorrow!! Woooooo!!!!!

The incredible joy I felt when I opened this box in storage...

Not too long ago I made the switch to Linux as my primary driver and it's working beautifully. I run Windows 10 in a VM for when it is needed, but thankfully it hasn't been often. :)

First full deck for my oldest! Moving from collecting the cool ones to actually playing. :)

One of the things I love most about ? Since I have started using it I have not had one for a movie or TV show. In the first 5 minutes of Facebook today was spoiled.

After spending some time trying to figure out why this Zero would not resolve a outside of me manually running a command to do so, I found that the system time was off and that was killing the DNS query. Fun night. :)

Just saved my locked out neighbor the cost of calling a locksmith. Also lost all trust he had in me. :)

Finally have a chance to play with this Zero tonight! Going to load and see how it handles different loads. :)

I need to get to bed. 5 more minutes.
*One hour later*

Put on my daily driver today with encrypted btrfs. Very lean setup and boot/shutdown time is greatly improved. Now to settle on a desktop environment...

Had to use several "guest wifi" networks today, and none of them had basic security measures such as isolation. C'mon people...

Finally getting around to re-seasoning this piece that was given to me earlier this year. Love the older stuff!

Attempting my first install today. My 3 year old decided to check it out and type on the keyboard during the download phase. Restarting the download phase...
