I'm gonna shutdown the ubuntu social instance for now, maybe forever. I'd recommend finding a new instance. 10 days notice. It goes down at the end of the month.

Considering shutting down the Ubuntu dot Social mastodon instance. It was a fun experiment, but it's way too much effort (and cost) to maintain. Need to think carefully about the future of it.

Thought I'd give "Listed" a try. It's a blog platform powered by StandardNotes - my preferred note editing software. Here's my first post, titled "Multiple GPUs in a Skull Canyon NUC"

Some months back I broke the keyboard on this Entroware Athena ☹️. I was a little to aggressive with it when gaming. I contacted Entroware on Friday. New keyboard arrived today! Fitted in 10 mins. 2 screws, 2 connectors. Done! Great service.

Been off work for 3 weeks due to life changing event (see bio, don't want to talk about it). Looking forward to getting back into work-life after the long break. Excited to hear about what happened while I was off. Super thrilled about stuff we worked on getting announced soon 🎉

My son (13) has been using lockdown to improve his CS:GO and Rocket League skills. He makes little montages of clips and puts them on YouTube. I'm impressed given he edits them on his school provided iPad! Give him a sub if you like that kind of thing. ❤️

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!
