Let's try this one more time...

Can I use Mastodon for commenting on my blog?

Sitting in the Houston United lounge waiting for our connecting flight to Oaxaca.

Yes. My shirt does say Oaxaca. Literally.

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.

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.

"Pre-styled sets of hero pieces, blending preloved and vintage treasures with runway vibes"

It’s official. We’re planning a group cruise to Alaska in July 2022.

I’d love you to join us! Lisa and I will be on board. For every 60 people who join us we can add another host.

I've been playing with notetaking with logseq, an open-source git-syncing, Roam clone. It's one to watch, but I'm still happiest with Obsidian + Synchthing.

Shoot. I got up early to watch the Monaco Grand Prix and it's NEXT week. 😞 Guess I'll have to play Valheim until it's time to go to work.

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?
