First! 😀 Only. 🤔

Welcome to the new TWiT Mastodon Instance! It's like Twitter but open, federated, and dedicated to TWiT Fans. My new handle is @leo - see you there!

Got any USB questions, especially about Type-C cables, @laughingman is in the house. Welcome, Benson!!

There's a video playback issue on the TWiT page for our Apple event coverage. We're working to fix it.

Sorry about that!

Alex Lindsay was right.

Amish Country Mushroom (sized not flavored) Popcorn with a copper bottom Whirly Pop is snack food heaven.

For best results, put a teaspoon of salt in with the oil before popping.

Sore arm, but so far no side effects 24-hours after my second dose of the Moderna mRNA vax. Ain't science an amazing thing? mRNA blows me away.

Check this out.
Something unusual happened recently when @leo & Lisa sat in front of our Live Stream camera. Stay tuned, because we can't wait to tell you more!

Why didn't I think of this sooner. Tmux + Kitty = happiness!

I'm a Google Fi user and Hangouts has, finally, stopped working. 😑

I'm looking for something that can work as the default SMS app on Android, but that also works cross-platform.

It looks like Pulse SMS ($20/year) is the best solution. It even has a desktop app on Linux. I'll have to use a PWA on iOS but that's better than nothing.

Has anyone found anything better?

I'm headed off on our first vacation since October 2019. Just a short jaunt for a few days to Napa, but I already feel lighter! See you on Saturday for The Tech Guy show.

Got my mojo-ryzen! The Alienware Aurora R10 arrived today! Installed Manjaro and played a little Valheim. Man this monitor is huge!

CDA230 is among the only good technology laws the US Congress ever adopted, and without it, no one would ever host your complaint about a business, your #MeToo whistleblowing, your negative reviews or your images of official corruption or police violence.

Every instance on the Fediverse has its own set of rules written by the people who run that instance.

If you disagree with them, you can move to another instance with different rules.

This is how the Fediverse differs from centralised social media such as Twitter/Facebook/IG, there is no single group or person with power over everyone.

On Mastodon, you can see your instance rules by clicking on the "About this server" link in the bottom left.
