I'm going to buy a coffee machine that has a weak plastic tool, IMO. And it's the choosen one because the stl file of that tool is available on thingiverse.

If someday, in the future, this piece (or another) breaks I will not have the need to buy another machine. I will not even need to design the broken piece!

If I want to repair it I'm going to be able to do it.

Your product, my machine, my rules.

Can you remember 10 phone numbers? If you do you are old or have taken the customs of the millennials.

Two decades ago, people would think I was cracy if I said that by 2020 people would love to give their private data to numerous ads (and surveillance) companies.

The data are:
1. Contacts,
2. Phone logs,
3. SMS,
4. All of the data saved on cloud storage (think Google Drive),
5. Browsing history,
6. Email (think Gmail),
7. Camera on their phones,
8. Health data (think Google Fit),
9. Schedule (think Google Calendar),
10. Family photographs,
11. Real time locations,
12. And numerous others.

- Me: Yep! "cat" is trending now! Let's see interesting tutorials of the cat command...
- Me (few seconds later): Oh... 🙄

You say "procrastinating", but I hear "doing side quests".

It should be a productive weekend but no... I have installed conky to get the logs of my media server and it has been a mistake as I'm going to spend days customizing it. I knew it!

Wow what a nice program is . Backed almost all of my configs.

If you want to learn how to use it, see a youtube video. Don't try to read the man pages.

I have few experience using notion but what I have seen is awesome. I have imported all my evernote stuff in minutes and started to do the same with all the Gdrive docs. In few weeks I'll be ungooggled.

Interesting app that I have discovered on reddit: it's called ytmdl and it lets you download music from youtube and also the metadata from sources like deezer, saavn, lastfm.

This weekend I'm going to try conky again. I'm not a fan of conkyporn but I would like to display the info of my media server. It's (almost) always on and I would like to see its logs in real time. I think that glances should work fine.

Rant – You likely* don’t need a 2,000$ server for your home In other words, use (and buy) what you need, not what you want.

People should start making deepfake videos of Mark Zuckerberg saying stupid, believable shit. #FakeNews #FightFireWithFire

I keep making decisions to ungoogle myself. The next one is try as a substitute of GDrive. I don't expect the same quality nor features but I do expect Notion not to track my ass in every key typing.

Last week, Google announced its own VPN service. Trusting Google's VPN would be like trusting a VPN from the NSA. Here's why giving Google direct access to all your online activity is a terrible idea:

Using a Raspberry with OMV is not a good option in case of using it as a professional backup solution but it's better than nothing for small companies and freelancers. Also it's a cheap decision and you can schedule its work time to not to stress neither the CPU nor the hard disks.

Furthermore , if you have a near maker space you can 3D print a case with good ventilation for the HDs.

My experience using this combination for years could not be better.

Is there any terminal based music player that supports playing music from a DLNA server?
