There are 3 adults in our house who regularly consume hot drinks from mugs. We have around 25 mugs in active circulation right now. That's ~8.3 mugs per person. Is that common? Does your house have a lower or higher πŸ€”

It's a bitter-sweet episode today. and discuss some tech news, and announce the end of the show. For realsies. Listen in to learn when and why.

Ventured into the loft and found another old computer, untouched since 2009. Booted right into Crunchbang! Happy memories!

@juliank @popey hah, I still have three of them in a drawer somewhere.... there is still a community around them ( on libera) actually modding them to new spheres (including replacing the ram chips with bigger ones and adding FHD panels)

The Framework (repairable, upgradable) laptop getting a 10/10 repairability score from iFixit is a great endorsement for the team who worked on the product.

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.

Interesting video review of the "JingPad A1" which is (their words) "The worlds first consumer level Linux tablet". Worth a look.

When I'm on a Zoom call, and every single participant has a mono microphone, I still put my headphones on the "right" way round. This is despite the cable crossing me to get to its destination socket. I should stop this. One day it might be nice if everyone is "panned" left/right

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... 🀦🏻
