Day 39 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
Everybody has their way of working on their desktop. Personally, I use plank to add a panel down at the bottom. Pretty much everything I use is there.
Day 38 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
My kids have gotten off school for the summer, which means the time they used to spend doing homework they are now spending playing video games and watching videos. They've got summer stuff starting next week, but for now they're gaming it up. They're wanting me to play with them, but sometimes their choices of games leave more than a little to be desired.
Day 37 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
My wife was trolling the Internet a few nights ago, and she ran across a list of possible blogging topics. One of the topics on the list was something about your favorite retro device. I don't remember the exact wording, and I kind of wrote it off at the time. I think I was already writing something about #Mycroft, but it reminded me of a device I had a long time ago that I felt (at least then) was way ahead of it's time.
Day 35 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
In yesterday’s post about Mycroft’s newest core release, I said, “I can't wait to spend more time with this release.” Neil Darlow jokingly replied, “You can't wait to spend more time with an AI. I know the real world is pretty screwed-up at the moment but... this? 🤣. I know Neil was joking, but there are some very real reasons I’m interested in AI.
This post is going to get a little bit more personal than usual, so if you’re not up for that, now would be a good time to close this tab.
Day 34 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
Eighteen hours ago, Kris Gesling announced to the world the release of Mycroft Core version 20.2.4. This version has a couple interesting additions that we can go over quickly.
Day 33 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
A few days ago, a comment went by in my timeline saying something to the effect of, “How have I not known about watch for this long?” That's not an exactly quote, but I didn't write it down at the time. Just in case there are other people out there who haven't heard of watch, let's look at it quickly.
Day 32 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
Once upon a time, a long time ago, I read something somewhere about “port knocking”. I thought to myself, that's going to be something that's just everywhere in a few years. Turns out I was wrong about that, but I really wish I wasn't just because it's such a cool idea.
Day 31 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
I'm going to guess that most of the people reading this know that I'm one of the admins of the Fosstodon Mastodon instance. If you don't know me explicitly from there, I still feel like I talk about it enough that most people have figured it out by now. I want to talk about one of my complaints with Mastodon.
