I bought a 1st generation ipad in 2010. It's almost completely unusable as anything other than a clock. Can't sell it because I stupidly got it engraved with my name and phone number 🀦. Can't sign into games, lots of things won't install or update. Netflix still works tho 🀷

Weird coincidence that I noticed the graphics stack went weird (couldn't launch new GL apps) after 33 days and ~5 hours, twice. I had to reboot to get everything working. Is there something about that duration that makes / KDE / Ubuntu systems go wobbly? Very strange.

Wife has been playing this word game for a couple of years now. I just noticed the level number: 15234. I don't think I have ever reached levels above fifteen thousand in any game, ever.

Been selling off a few of my older computers recently - Marie Kondo style. Looking at the ThinkPads next. I'm having difficulty parting with some though. These two chonkers in particular - R40 and 380XD are keepers, I think. Along with the X220, T43, T450 and X61s... 🀦🏻

I don't understand why it's rising by only $1 every few hours. Are people seriously visiting this page and just plugging a 1 in the box to donate?

Interesting new (to me) Google play store development. Now it hides all the updates by default. Just tells you how many there are, and you have to click through to see them. Research shows most people don't care, and just want the latest stuff? Unsurprising.

Setup a green screen over the weekend. Now finding the optimal settings ready for Zoom meetings at work next week. This is fine.

Bought some of these beef ribs. Not quite sure how I'm going to cook them though. No smoker and not doing BBQ today. Guess I will do them low and slow. Recommendations sought.

I do like the way Microsoft Edge browser makes it easy to "Install" webapps of popular websites I use. Neato!

Woke up to find freenode is accelerating their own self destruction. Also, they've coined a new sinister mantra: "freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS. freenode is freedom.". Uhuh.
