Very impressed with the browser media integration in KDE plasma 5.13.

Anyone would think Apple just invented dark mode. Give me a fscking break!

Relaxing in the garden before the media dubbed "life taking" storms arrive.

My Intel Hades Canyon NUC pre-order just arrived! ๐Ÿ˜ Time to fill it with RAM and M.2s and wrestle some Ubuntu MATE into it๐Ÿง๐Ÿ’ช #WimpysWorld

Absolutely loving this weather. So lucky it happened to fall on my working from home days. I bet the blinds are pulled shut at the office.

Looks like it'll be back to "blind wars" when I'm back there tomorrow. No way I'm letting them stay shut all day.

I'm really impressed with the Lepy 2024A+ amplifier I bought. Got it in the bedroom hooked up to some late 1970s PYE speakers and a spare chromecast audio.

Voice controlled via a Google home mini from my bed. Great setup, would recommend rather than wasting hundreds on a Google max speaker.

Turns out I have no PPI. Didn't think I did but it was worth a shot

one of these things is not like the others

Laptop power bricks make great feet warmers

3am this morning I woke to a huge flash through the curtains and the electric went off. It came back on at 8:30am. My electric has been off and on all day. The workmen have been out there all day digging the road and doing stuff.

Just checked and the poor guys are still out there now working away in drving snow and howling winds. Hat's off to the Western Power Distribution engineers, they've certainly earned their money today.

Jus saw a Huge lightening bolt / flash through the curtains. Now the power has gone off ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The smoke alarm in my kitchen is such a drama queen

The local farmer has been muck spreading again. The smell is that strong that it's beginning to seep into the house. Funny how he doesn't do this outside his own house ๐Ÿšœ ๐Ÿ’ฉ

Glorious sunny day. Making the most of free heat from the sun

Loving the new KDE-Connect on KDE Plasma and how the new release allows you to reply natively to whatsapp notifications.

I'm always totally blown away by the KDE-Connect devs. Such an awesome project.
