@xylogx Excellent points in the paper. We'll discuss it on TWiT. Thanks for the link!

@snowbat Podcasts didn't exist as a technology until September 2004 - so whatever they did then they did as an audio download, as opposed to a podcast. If you include audio downloads then I've got them beat handily. I've been doing the radio show since 1992 - and we've been offering downloads of the show ever since.

@bensonleung It's a very clever idea - and Fraemwork just opened its marketplace for modules. I hope others adopt the idea!

@Ogedei I paid around $2000 but it depends on configuration. Check frame.work for the price.

@thomas Build quality is very nice - comparable to a Dell XPS with a better keyboard.

I got my Frame.work DIY laptop today with:

Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7
32GB (1 x 32GB) DDR4-3200
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro®
2TB - WD_BLACK™ SN750 NVMe™

Plus these expansion cards

1 HDMI
2 USB-C
1 USB-A

Assembled it in half an hour. Installed Manjaro Gnome 21.1.1 and everything works, including the fingerprint reader.

I'm using it now, and it's already my favorite laptop.

@ggreenaz That's so cool Gar! We're honored.

I definitely think the AR and car projects overlap.

@Senlis I am loving WoT - kind of bingeing it actually. Halfway through volume 5 - which means I'm almost a third of the way through.

@xylogx Agreed - I'm hoping Apple's CSAM scanning is a move to preempt criticism before they go ahead and offer end-to-end encryption on iCloud. But then we're just wide-eyed optimists.

Despite the many minutes I had to spend setting it up, I really like the new Vivaldi. It's now my default browser on Mac and Linux.

@cousinofjah Don’t bother. Money will be useless soon. Bury gold. Or better yet, stock up on cigarettes like oh Doctah!

@Dcanuck I had a Model X but I don't think it ever went into autopilot accidentally. I never had a problem with the Tesla, but Lisa didn't like the "beta" state of the software. I'm just used to that!

@OldChefGuy Yeah, twit.team - I even got a fancy URL. The fam uses it occasionally, that's it!

@SamGreenwood I don't. The cable is normaled into the AKGs so you're going to have to do some soldering anyway. Might as well make the cable.

@SamGreenwood I have a huge head, so I've never had that problem. No idea how to adjust, either. Sorry!
