Today on #100DaysToOffload I talk about some of the #podcasts I listen to. It includes a new one with @popey and a smattering of Self Hosted talk that may interest you @Meatball

Take a read here: and then treat your ears to something great by taking a listen.

What are some of your favourite podcasts?

My ThinkPad X220 was last clean-installed with 14.04 in 2015 and has since been upgraded through many releases. Just upgraded it to 20.04, and Unity is still wonderful. 😍 Just needs s Yaru theme to finish it off 😂

Time to let off some steam with OpenSpades!
I'm going to chase down @Wimpy with a spade (and a gun).
Gonna play on my "Good vs Evil" (I will of course, be Evil) server. Join us and have some fun with spades. (snap install openspades ;) )

I think it's probably about time to let my collection of old arcade boards go. I will take each one out and give it some testing love, then throw them all up on eBay. I haven't played with most of them for 15+ years. Time to Marie Kondo the loft!

This Ben Heck repair videos is super. Not too technical, good fun and a great learning exercise.

System Syzygy is a puzzle game, in the style of Cliff Johnson's The Fool's Errand and 3 in Three, and of Andrew Plotkin's System's Twilight. Challenging puzzles in a fun retro-style will give your brains some exercise this weekend!

snap install syzygy

Bank Holiday Easter Monday lockdown boredom led to:
✔️ Setting up a game server
✔️ Creating a discord to chat
✔️ Registering a domain
✔️ Configuring Apache
✔️ Using Hugo to make a static site!
Fun times. 🍾

It is finally time to make Brisk Menu stable 🐘 in for our upcoming LTS release 😎 Join me on my live stream 📡 to squash some bugs 🐞

In a change from my usual YouTube video style, today I visited the big blue room.

Anyone fancy some openspades? You get to hit me with a spade, or shoot me in the head? Playing now on "24H Server (UK)"

I made a little video showing how to upgrade from 18.04 to Ubuntu Focal (which will become 20.04). Might be useful for adventurous people willing to test pre-release.

"Easily Update Published Snaps" - in which I demonstrate how easy it is to update an already-published snap, when a new version of software comes out. Enjoy.

Ok, it's getting late, everyone else is in bed. Time for a bit of late night testing after dark. Join me in a bit, for a relaxed live stream.

Hey! Me again, with another video. This time, the flavo{u]rs! Just a short video, introducing a change to some future videos.
